Watercolor Weekend January 19, 2019





Hello,

I made this card for the Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend using stamps from the Bible Journaling line. I stamped the well from the 5068 - Living Water Set using sepia then African violet. I did stamp it off on paper first.  I pulled the color out of the lines.  Next I stamped the little pot from the 5067 - Gates of Righteousness Set in the sepia and African violet. I used Tombow markers 947 and 977 to color in the pot from the palette.  I added the leaves by stamping the ivy from the 5073 - Bible Foliage Set in 177 and the flowers from the 5074 - Bible Flower Set in English red and then added water to them. I added the large and small grass stamps from the 5073 - Bible Foliage Set and pulled the color up and out.  I stamped the bird in sepia from the 5068 Living Water Set, then added more sepia and English red from the palette. I painted the roof of the well in 249 and the rope in 977 from the palette. I painted the ground in the 249 also.  I used the sepia and African violet mixed to add the shadows to the well bottom.  I used 528 and a lot of water to paint in the sky. The last thing I did was sign it and add that little heart graffiti with the letters TF (for my husband Tad) in it because today just happens to be our 39th wedding anniversary.

Have a great weekend, I know I'm going to have a fun one!

Bible Journaling January 6, 2019





Hello All!

Anyone else have a New Year's resolution to spend more time bible journaling, like me?  I love making cards and giving them away, but it's nice I will have something to keep in my family and pass along to future generations. Art Impressions has a wonderful line of bible journaling stamps available now and I'm sure more new ones will be made in the future.

I made this first page (on the right) after watching one of Bonnie Kreb's videos on YouTube but when I created the page with the little boy stamp, I added the yellow flowers to the page on the right to tie the pages together.  If you bible journal and post on Instagram, please follow me and use the hashtag: #biblejournaling so we can encourage each other.  Thanks!

Watercolor Weekend January 5, 2019



Happy 2019!

I always feel hopeful and excited to start a brand new year.  I am ready to get back to more crafting, now that the busyness of the holidays is over, also.  I made this card for the Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend using the 5014 - WC Window Set that I stamped in sepia first, then in the African violet. I did stamp it off on paper first.  I pulled the color out of the lines then added some of the African violet to the palette to darken the windows.  Next I stamped the little pot from the 4869 - WC Small Container Set.  I added brown and sepia to the palette to color in the pot.  I added the leaves by stamping the ivy from the 4867 - WC Foliage Set 2 in olive green and the flowers from the 5009 - WC Mini Flower Set in scarlet and then added water to them.  I stamped the birds in sepia from the 4966 - WC Bird Bath Set and the stamp positioner to add the birds to the window, then added more sepia, steel blue, and a little bit of the brown to their beaks from the palette.  I used the fine tip of the sepia to darken the eyes and the legs.


I stamped the cat in sepia from the 4873 - WC Cats Set then made a mask for it and using the stamp positioner, I stamped the bench in sepia and African violet from the 5055 - WC Sitting Places Set.  I pulled the colors out of the lines on the cat and bench then used sepia from the palette to color spots on the cat.  I inked up the small grass in olive green from the 4051 - WC Foliage Set 1 and stamped the grass on the legs of the bench.  I used pine green to ink the bottom of the flowers from the 4868 - WC Flower Set 2 and I inked the tops of the flowers in the steel blue and stamped them on either side of the bench.  I used water to soften the flowers and the grasses then I used African violet from the palette to make the shadow under the bench.  Next I used a tiny amount of sepia on the palette and a lot of water to color in the background.  I used the 5063 - Double Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out the picture, and a background piece of paper and then mounted it all to the card base.
