art journaling with Stampotique

I love these little quails of Janet Klein's and use them quite a bit in my journals.

It's the busiest time of year for me at the minute, but that'll finish today when school finishes for the Summer.  So I'm sharing a journal page I made a while ago using my Stampotique stamps - I've loved this company's images for a long, long time.

I rarely write in my journals but I do enjoy using snippets from book; old books often have the most fantastic phrases.

"What you lookin' at?"

I love this little quasimoto, he just looks like he's looking directly at you and saying "What?" or "What are you looking at?"

I stood him on star flower, added a little funky striped leaf and the exclamation mark from cockatoo screech.

what is it about the white/kraft combo?

My fab friend Chris, of Pearshaped Crafting, shared a little notebook she'd covered earlier this week so whilst in the Trafford Centre last night (the local shopping Mall for my US and other overseas visitors!) I bobbed into Muji to get my own for only 60p!

I stamped mine with antique description and embossed it with fine detail white embossing powder before adding cockatoo screech and my own speech bubble.  This little A5 notebook is perfect for keeping in my handbag, just as Chris suggests :)  Thanks Chris!!

Happy Birthday!

My little girl was 17 this week and as she's just finished a dance show Hazel dancing was the perfect image!

I used one of my new stamps 'Baroque background' for the grass, and Janet's lovely clouds cover up all the black smudges I can't help but add to my cards!!!

A few sparkles in the daisies and I was happy with my card.  Sorry for the short post, it's sheer madness at work at the moment!

simple pleasures

I'm back at work after my op and this is a majorly busy time in school so just a quick card from me today!!

The bicycle and bikeride text are both from Janet Klein's new collection.  Aren't they gorgeous?!

I added extra flowers to the basket (I hope Janet doesn't mind!) by stamping them on more card and cutting them out.  There's some sparkles in there too!

Stampotique mail art

This week I joined in Roc Nicholas' mail art swap on Facebook.  I love using the inside of envelopes for the patterned paper but it really surprised me how much of my mail looks the same from the outside - there's hardly any variation in text!

I used one of the boring envelopes as a template, drew round it and added ink through lots of stencils.  I stamped 'dog' on the bits of the envelope that had text on and placed them in a row.  Roc's top tip before posting is to coat the envelope with gel medium to protect it.  I was very glad I did this as it was absolutely throwing it down when I went out to the post office.  However, it did pick up the blue dylusions ink and made the dogs slightly blue - oops!!

I enjoyed making the envelope so much I decided to make another.  This has some added extras and features over on the Stampotique Designers' blog today.
