Monday Journal – With One Stamp

When I was at the Sugar & Spice retreat in June, I purchased a stamp set from Mindy Lacefield.  I have been dying to use it ever since.  I was itching to get creative so figured today was the day and I thought I would show you how to make two different images with one stamp from the set (to show you how to extend the use of your supplies).

I started with two sheets of deli paper painted using a Gelli Plate which I then stuck in my art journal with Mod Podge.  I am in love with this colour combination.

I then covered them with pastels and paint pens.

Next, I took some of the images from the set and stamped them onto watercolour paper.   I love Mindy’s images, they are simple, childlike and can’t help but put a smile on your face.

Then painted the faces with my Neocolor crayons and cut them out.

One I made into a shy girl who likes to keep her hands in her pockets and the other…

I turned into a bear.  Both bodies were also cut from the watercolour paper and I used my Faber Castell Pitt pens to colour them in.

Endeavour to think outside the box when it comes to your stamps (use a leaf as a feather or circles as cobblestones on a path).

Hope you took some time to be creative on this fine holiday Monday!!
