You may think I got carried away, but since I love splats, I used paint and a stamp to create a whole lot of color on my art journal page. While I was picking my colors, I was reminded of a song I taught my young children to help them learn their colors. Here it is!Today we are challenging you to use a SPLAT! of paint somewhere on your design. We all love to get messy once in awhile and this week is your perfect opportunity to throw on some grubby clothes and splatter that paint all over your creation.
The Stampotique Originals' image I used today is from one of Stampotique's newest stamp designers, Linda Peterson, who has created a whole series of stamps (with coresponding text stamps) featuring Hazel. This one is called Dreamer.
I learned early on from one of the Stampotique Design Team members (thanks, France Papillon!) that images should be "grounded" and not appear to be floating in space. However, when creating this journal page, I was more focused on color than grounding, so it was not until I was done that I discovered Hazel's bed was, indeed, floating. I was now past the point of adding washi tape under the stamped image as a ground. Undaunted, I colored in the bedposts to make them appear more solid, then grabbed a gray stamp pad and my index finger and did some second generation stamping under the bedposts. Not too bad for an afterthought!
I invite you to join me in creating a piece of art today--an ATC, a scrapbooking layout, an art journal page, a postcard, or whatever you like. The only requirement is that you use a real stamp (digi stamps will not be eligible for the drawing). At the end of the month, there will be two $30 gift certificates from Stampotique Originals awarded randomly among those who submitted a project!
