Art journaling for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

I'm doing something unusual for my usual Tuesday post at The Rubber Buggy - art journaling!

I've seen so many beautiful samples of art journaling and I've been trying to make some of my own, but I've still got a lot to learn. I thought I'd show you a spread though. It was very easy to put this one together and I like it because I think I got a lot from using just a few products - distress ink and Graphic 45 french country stamp #3.

First I distressed the entire page using peeled paint, tumbled glass, tattered rose and victorian velvet. I then pencilled my sentiment and filled it with a copic marker (black100). Then I stamped all over the pages in different colours. I hope you can tell that the post card stamp is used randomly partial in black soot, the bumble bee in mustard seed and the flour de lie in blue. If you look closely you'll notice that I made a border at the bottom using the branches in pine needle green. I've also stamped the "sign" stamp in peeled paint and tattered rose, sometimes right on top of each other so it looks like a shadow.

Well, I think I will be pleased eventually with the page, it grows on me. But like I said I still have a lot to learn:)

Products used from the store:
Tim Holtz distress ink
Graphic 45 French country stamp set #3
Copic marker B100

Thank you for visiting!
