Here's another Zentangle done with a stamp, this one showing the stamp before and after the doodles were added:
Zentangles can be as simple or as complicated as you like!
Heather at stamp club inspired me to complete a journal filled with background techniques. She participated in Trish Bee's Background Noise challenge, and shared her journal with us. I thought I'd give it a try:
You can see that my journal has a different title.
I have interspersed instructions with samples. This "Celebrate" card was made by my sister Dianne, as were the polished stone cards below.
Thanks for looking at my journal! Now I'm moving on to Volume 2.
This Sugarloaf stamp is one of my favorites, but one that I don't own. So I must thank my sister, Dianne, who lets me play with her toys when I go and visit her! We sprayed some watercolour backgrounds and stamped on them, and then I coloured this with Prismacolor pencil crayons.
This is a simple background technique using Elmers Glue-All and pigment ink. Simply spread some glue on matte cardstock leaving some blank spaces. After it dries, apply pigment inks and rub with a paper towel. Overstamp with permanent ink.
The themes for the January swap at the Vancouver Artist Trading Card group were purple, turtles, and beginning.
We swapped at the Richmond Art Gallery this month where there is a display of ATC's on at the moment. It is on until January 22 - if you're in the area and enjoy ATC's it is definitely worth a visit!
This Stampington collage stamp was embossed in white. I think the background is acrylic, but I'm not absolutely sure. I created it awhile ago, found it during a recent "clean-up", and swapped it out at the Vancouver Artist Trading card December swap. I'm so glad it has gone to a new home rather than in the garbage!
I recently cleaned up a number of old "work in progress" projects. Most of them either went in the garbage, or were turned into Artist Trading Cards.
This is another Magenta stamp stamped in white and coloured with Prismacolor pencil crayons.
