It’s been too long since I’ve created an Art Journal page. The new Distress Paint colors arrived at Studio Plucking Daisies this weekend and I took the opportunity to showcase them all in a journal page with a “spritz” of Distress Marker Spritzer for good measure.
Yesterday I asked for your help on deciding what to create with first out of this lot of new inks, stamps and paints. Man you guys had such great ideas! I’ve been busy busy trying out all your suggestions and today’s Distress Paint Journal page is the first of many creations being made thanks to all of you for the inspiring ideas
*If you missed yesterday’s post stop by HERE and check the comments for creative ideas.
A few of you suggested using the Distress Paints with some of the stamps. Since half of my lot is Tim Holtz and the other half is Wendy Vecchi I decided to do a Tim page on one side and will complete the opposite page using new goods from Wendy Vecchi tomorrow.
I divided up my page into sections and applied a new color of Distress Paint to each (There are actually 13 new colors of Distress Paint but Faded jeans fell behind a bunch of schtuff and I didn’t realize it until I had already completed the page…whoops!).
For the stamping I used Tim Holtz new Stampers Anonymous set “Nature Walk”. The images were stamped on Watercolor paper and spritzed with a coordinating Distress Marker color using the new Distress Marker Spritzer.
I really like the new spritzer…much more experimentation needs to be done with this new friend
This journal page turned out to be a great exercise for experimenting with the new Distress Paint colors, Tim Stamps and Distress Marker spritzer. It really helps to see all the colors in a solid block (minus faded jeans). Creating this journal page to showcase all the new Distress Paint colors forced me to use color combinations I never would have put together on my own. All of the new colors work so well together don’t you think? They make me think of spring!
I’ll be back in the “lab” tomorrow working on more of your creative ideas. If anyone else has any requests or suggestions drop them in the comments.
Have a colorful day!
