The great escape

Stamps are so versatile, you can use them as a focal image, build up a scene, create a background with them, make your own stamps, use found objects as stamps….
For this week’s Craft Barn challenge I created a scene with different stamps.

First I colored the sky blue and the grass green with brushos to set the scene


then came the stamping (which is not pristine due to the nature of my journal). I stamped a tree surrounded with all kind of flying creatures: birds, dragonflies and butterflies. On top I added splatters with a wet paintbrush which I dipped in the brushos. (warning: this is very addictive and is very hard to stop once you started) I also added a bit of gold by swiping the page with a card to tie in the page with the page next to it (which has gold lettering). Finally I added a rubbon with the text The great escape.

  1. The page looks great, Vicky! Love how you added the gold...it looks like it belongs, even though we don't see the page that is beside it :)

  4. Lovely page. It looks like an explosion of creatures and colour coming out of the tree. Those Brushos are just so exciting as you never quite know what you will get.

  5. Wow, your page is fantastical! It's like a scene from a tropical jungle when something disturbs the air and all flying creatures set off for the safety of the skies. Awesome! :D

  6. My favourite colour combo, and quite ethereal! I love my Brushos too, and I love splattering any kind of paint, which usually goes everywhere!
