Bird on Bike Journey

I think I am having a little too much fun with my Gelatos and Lost Coast Design stamps!  I am so glad Altered Pages had the opportunity to partner with Lost Coast Design, I have had a great time stamping this month!  Today I am sharing a third technique using Gelatos the other two were direct to paper.  This time I am taking the paper to the Gelatos. Today I am using the unmounted Grunge Tree from  Lost Coast Designs stamps. It is a background stamp, measuring 4 x 5 1/4.

Let No Sadness Come to This Heart

Hello again, Friday Friends! I am so happy to share this with you.   I just loved working this BEAUTIFUL Lost Coast Designs Hamsa Hand stamp and helping it into something that I am truly very proud of.  It was not hard given the quality of the great red rubber stamp and the embellishments from  First I would like to start with some inspiration here... The Hamsa Hand is a very ancient symbol and is believed to ward off evil.   It carries with it this beautiful poem.  Please take this with you today and all days.... Let no sadness come to this heart Let no trouble come to these arms Let no conflict come to these eyes Let my soul be filled with the blessing of joy and peace

Winged Girl stamped on Monoprints

This week I've used the lovely Winged Girl from Lost Coast Designs, in a successful attempt to
improve (not to mention destash) some prints from a pile of less-than-stellar monotypes:

Here she's stamped on a deli paper print. This image is on craft paper--after stamping with Versafine, I dried the ink with a heat gun, and used a straight edge to tear the image to a size that fit some premade craft paper cards.

This one is my favorite!
Have a wonderful Thursday! :)trisha

Grateful Hearts for Creative Arts Video by Debi Tullier

I am very thankful for Creative Arts. My life would be quiet empty and lacking color without art.

 I felt this tag represents a flight of fancy.   The sketch (coloring collage sheet) moving from a coloring book look, to colored image to an actual "flower" is how my world is. I think many forget that everything was a "sketch" before it took shape and became "real".  I am so thankful to AlteredPages for allowing me to have this fun forum to express myself. I am also delighted to use the wonderful rubber stamps from Lost Coast Designs.  I used one of their Whimsical bird stamps but please check out their diverse catalog of  stamps. Supplies used were: Gel Press Splash Inks brayer palette acrylic paints Black-eyed Susan handmade flowers Watercolor Pencils  Pan Pastels 3061 Coloring Flowers Collage sheet Random embossing folder for patterning with Gel Press Stencil with celestial elements Aleene's Glue Scissors Miscellaneous paint brushes Manila Tags  Acrylic Stamp Moun…
