Stamping on Magicals and Shakers- art journaling for Lindy’s Gang
Today I have for you new, exciting technique. Just perfect if you like distress look on your creations. And this time I will be using Magicals, Magical Shaker and stamps. Love them all, so believe me- I had loads of fun!
I’ve learnt this technique not that long ago from amazing artist- Jenn Engle. I love trying new things but I feel it’s very important to give a credit to the artist who taught me something new. And I know I will be using this particular technique quite often, as I looooove distress look on my project. So let’s start:)
I will be using my art journal with unprimed pages. To keep them from warping I am always glueing few pages together. The journal is yellowish in colour so I chose few of the Magicals and Magical Shaker which would go well with the colour of the page: (South Shore Sand, Blazing Black& Oom Pah Pah Pink)
The first step was to sprinkled delicately all the colours onto my page:
Then with my sprayer I sprayed tiny bit of water onto the stamp and stamped it on the page, exactly where I have sprinkled earlier the Magicals:
I have used few different stamps and every time I was stamping, I was adding some water to the stamp. Just don’t overload it as the water will drop on your page and the stamping image will not be crisp enough. Of course with this technique there are no crisps images- the images are distressed, but what is cool is the fact that different colours are mixing together, stamped image is multicoloured and you can redo the stamping at any point. Why not, since you are trying to get the distresses look? This is what I’ve got and just have a look at this gorgeous, mixed colours:
I also did some embossing. This time I used embossing pen and I traced with it the shapes in the stencil and embossed it with Caesar’s Goldembossing powder.
Next step, after drying everything, was to add some washing tape and build up the layers:
On a piece of watercolour paper I embossed a image of a butterfly with Black Forest Black embossing paper and then fussy-cut it:
At the end I adhered the butterfly to the page and added more embellishments, some black splatter with Blazing Black Magical and some doodling. This is the beautiful distressed page:)
Hope you did enjoy this small tutorial and you’ll find this technique useful for your future creations:)
