Hello everyone… May brings all the beautiful flowers. We have some that already blooming, and some are coming up soon… Inspired by flowers, today I have a Desert Rose Art Journal for this month that I created using the new digital stamp.
I use this digital stamp on my May art journal. They are just so pretty!
I open the files with flower picture editing program, resized them into 3 sizes and then printed them with my inkjet printer on a heavyweight white cardstock. After that I fussy cut them with micro-tip scissors.
I colored them with Leisure Arts Watercolored Pencils and brush. I colored each of the bottom and tip of the petals and leaves. And then using watercolor brush and water, I pulled the pigment to fill the rest of the image. They turned into watercolored flowers. I set them a side to dry.
For the mixed media background, I started with adding acrylic paints (yellow and red) on my Canson Mixed Media journal page with brayer.
And then using used bubble wrap, I stamped it randomly on the page with black paint.
Once the paint dried, I added the homemade texture page on it with an old credit card. I spread all over the page thinly. And while the texture page still wet, I stamped the Joy Clair – Broken Brick Background Clear Stamp on it to give the wall texture on it. I cleaned the stamp right away with warm water so the texture paste won’t stuck on the stamp.
I added some Heidi Swapp Gold Screen Ink on brick texture and let it dry.
For the sentiments, I resized them to be big enough for the page. I printed them and trimmed them into rectangles. I drew the frame line using Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen.
All the pieces are ready to be put together. I added the flowers and sentiment with Aleene’s Tacky All Purpose Glue on the texture page. I finished the page with some white paint that I added it on the page using fan brush.
I love finding inspiration from the nature, especially flowers 🙂 I hope you all also can enjoy this art journal today. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Have a fabulous day!
