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.

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.
