The challenge is to be inspired by one element from the photo below and the twist to use a stamp on the the background of your project.
Hello! This is Marci. I know School is just about to start or for some HAS started. I have created a layout of my grandsons LAST DAY of school in June: the inspiration just called me to this photo! I used: Schools Out for summer: I used a navy Sharpie and used Tim Holtz Mustard Seed Distress Paint, Distressed # Stamp: I used Navy ink around the edges and photo. School Set: I used various colors, stickles on the pencil and glossy accents to highlight. Hope you can join us in this monthly challenge!
Hello Creative Embellishments friends! Maggi here with my inspiration for this month’s challenge. . I was inspired by the artsy look of the inspiration photo and of course the numbers remind me of back to school time, so I made an journal to gift to a young budding artist. I thought she might have fun with it going back to school. For the twist, I used Creative Embellishments’ Distressed Brick Stamp on the background of the cover. I also used the Metal Stencil to mask behind the easel from the Artist Create Collection. I used Prima Metallique waxes to color the easel and then selected two flair buttons from the Art Flair Set and dabbled them with alcohol ink to give them a more vintage vibe. Finally, I added the Rose Leave Spray down the center topped with a couple of flowers. You can view a video flip through of the journal if you want to see the inside.
Happy Happy September already. I want to share a fun set of ATC’s I made from this awesome inspirational picture this month. I loved all the letters and the colours of the mood board so I totally went with that. I used a ton of stamping in this project, layers and layers of stamping with all of my favorite stamps, you can watch the video here. After using the Numbers, Burlap, Harlequin stamps to name a few, I the used the Binary to stamp on top of the Bubbles Chipboard for some extra effects, and then put it all together with some inspirational words from stamps from my stash. I hope this inspires you all to play along this month.
Hi Everyone and Happy September! I had so much created with the inspiration photo this month and went with a super large tag! I started with one of the large tags and covered with papers first…than I used the distressed text stamp in the background. I added in a Circle Doodle Frame and finished it all off with a flair from the #1 Dad Flair Set. Have fun playing along and I can not wait to see what you make!!!!!!!!
This challenge inspired me not to stamp on my background papers, but to stamp on my chipboard piece with a background stamp instead. I stamped with blank ink and a script stamp to give the beautiful Steampunk Clock and Gear Cluster something extra. I was inspired by the bold colours and the steampunk/vintage feel to the image. I can’t wait to see your entries too!
Happy September! It’s my favourite time of year – the weather is crisp and cooling off and the kids are going back to school – a time full of possibilities! All the numbers on the inspiration photo were the perfect inspiration for this Six Impossible Things page for my Alice in Wonderland Art Journal. I started the background by using the CE Distressed Checkers Stencil – I used a sponge and some Black Archival Ink and randomly added stencilling across the page. I also used the Black Archival Ink with one of the CE Halftone Circle Stamps to do some background stamping (for this challenge’s twist). I added some stencilled clocks using Prima Art Extravagance Copper Crackle Paste. I cut the image of Alice and the White Queen from an Alice in Wonderland Puzzle Book I found and then used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mists to blend the scene from the image into the page. Finally, I painted the I-VI (for the 6 impossible things) of the Grunge Roman Numerals chipboard using Prima Art Alchemy Metallique in Acrylic Paing in Brass Hardware.
