Let's Make Art Mix Media Monday!!

Hello Inky Friends, today we are just going to play! As most of the world should be in stay at home mode how about we just art the worries away? I am going to be playing with PaperArtsy Stamps & Fresco Finish paint.*Affiliate- some of these companies have given me product to use, play & experiment with. The ideas are my own but I tend to work with companies whose products I like so enjoy the inspiration.**some of these links are affiliate, I receive a small percentage from the company at no cost to you. This helps me deliver free content!

I was in the mood to make something simple, that I could duplicate easily & just get some pages done. I think when the world has gone crazy maybe the art just needs to be simple & fun. I am working on my #the100daysproject again. There is a supply list below with links. Also if you put karenbearse in the coupon code you will save 12% *some restrictions may apply

The idea was to just do some stenciling or stamping with paint, stamp some background, add a focal image.  My pages are 3 x 4 3/4" size.
AJ #1: Stamp set used is ESN 43 by Sara Naumann. 

Simply dabbed paint on with a cosmetic foam & stamp. Colors used- Snowflake, Smoked Paprika. 

Then added some Cherry Pie- ummm pie...

I stamped on card stock & fussy cut out the feather & left in the cool post marks. Some twine & a charm. Simple but love it!

AJ#2: This one i changed up just a bit & started with a scrapbook paper for my background. The stamp set was ESN 41. Same formula though... stamp back ground with paint. Create a focal point. The leaf & post mark were stamped & fussy cut. 

I liked the look of the charm from the 1st one so I added one with some twine & a brad.I also discovered a super easy way to clean the stamps that have paint on them. Immediately after stamping spritz with water, getting the stamp pretty wet & scrub off with a rough surface face towel. The paint just comes right off!

While I had my stamp sets out I also decided to make some ephemera for Junk Journals. This was easy, just stamp on tags or paper & rough cut out. This way they are almost ready to go. I also like making a stamp sheet while I am doing this & usually use a stamp platform for this. These stamp sheets are great for arting on the go!

That is it for today! I hope you are spending time arting & letting the troubles of the world pass on by. Great de-stress-er! Stay healthy.
