Art Journalling with Stamps

This page came about when I was flipping through my journal and I saw a page where I'd dabbed off stencils onto it. That is normally a perfectly fine thing to do, but the paint I was saving was dark purple, navy, black and dark brown. It was horrible. Rather than gesso over the whole thing, I decided to use my Hero Arts Neon Paint Daubers and fill in all the white spaces with bright colors. It was just the trick to bringing the whole page into a happier, more cheerful appearance.

Left Side:

As I tend to, I stamped all my images onto journal cards with Memento Ink and then colored them simply with Copic Markers. I love the interest that stamping on journal cards adds without much effort. The results tend to be on the serendipitous side and that suits me perfectly.

Right Side:

All stamps are by Stampotique, by Daniel Torrente,  and this is for their Challenge: SDC115: Lots of Layers

What a great "save" of that page, Nicole, so the underlying paint was not wasted, but provided a perfect backdrop for your strong vivid to layers! This spread contains to much interest, I am still finding things I missed the time before!! Love that calendar page! Nicely done!
