Time For Tea Junk Journal Card

Hello Inky Friends, this week the theme on the Topflight Stamps blog is Tea. As I am working in a Junk Journal right now it seemed like a good idea to bring you along for the ride.

How about making a fun journal tag? This was pretty easy to make & just has a few steps. The image was stamped with archival ink on white card stock.


Using stamp ink as water color to paint up my image. Have you tried the new Lavinia ink? It is so luscious. I left some of the image white to give it more pop.

Everyone loves some good organization. I found that the Ranger Mini Archival ink tin fits 8 of the Prism inks. Just take the plastic insert out and you have some good storage. 

 The stamped image was adhered on kraft card stock & a Yogi tea bag tag was added. Easy by adding double sided tape to the string. Did you know all their tea tags have a little message on them. Adds some fun to the occasion.


 The quote box was created with a stamp from the "Circles" set- hum but it is a square. Stamped on lined paper with the French Navy Prism ink was added which covers up the string. A quote from Art By Marlene & one of her Paper Elements  gave the journal card a nice little touch. 
The inside of the wee tag was stamped with a tiny Lavinia Seed Head stamp & another Paper Elements image was used. That is it! I think I may need to make some more of these journal cards! Happy tea week!!

Topflight Stamps Mixed Media Art Journal Page

Hello Mixed Media Fans, this week we are making an art journal page for Topflight Stamps. I hope you join me & create your own sunny page! 

I am doing another page in my Art By Marlene Journal and it is kind of happy & sunny. Spring is starting to actually show its warm face in our area. I added a photo after the piece was finished. I love adding photos to my art journal page it adds to the story & helps document what is going on.


Start with some paint & a stencil. Using Fresco Finish paint and a dabber to create a fun image. I chose colors that daisies come in but remember this is art so the sky's the limit. The big flower was made using the Daisy Daisy stencil. As is usual there is a supply list below. 

Next, stamped the cute gnome directly on the mixed media paper. "Ernest" was painted with Prism ink & water. The shroom was stamped on card stock & painted with wet Fresco Finish paint.


I love using ink as paint. Really adds potential to your paint supply! Simply stamp a bit on your craft mat, add a spritz of water & you are good to go.

 Finally some random stamping around the edges, love using these multi image stamps! This is a really large stamp with lots of images on it! Got to love that French Navy ink. Really pops off the page.

 Very interesting how the image is sort of buried into the flower and creates dimension. Thanks so much for joining me today I hope you have a chance to create an art journal page! Hop over to Topflight Stamps to see pics of the stamp sets...
