Today I'm using some StencilGirl stencils along with Lost Coast Designs rubber stamps.
It's been a while since I played with my Gelli Plate, so I decided to get it out for some fun!
I used the Joy (dictionary page) rubber stamp on the Gelli plate to get a bit of text (and texture) onto my background.
Using Pam Carriker's Journal Texture #1 stencil and Journal Texture #2 stencil I added some additional texture while also lightening up the page.
Being in that circle mood, I decided to pull out Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch's Bubbles Stencil to add another layer.
Using Lost Coast's Shrubbery stamp (this comes in two different sizes), I added some background grasses to the lower part of the pages using StazOn Timber Brown. I then loosely doodled over the design using both permanent black and white pens to add more layers and depth the that areas too.
Feather Bird stamp using black StazOn and quickly applied black embossing powder while the ink was still wet. I like how the embossing powder gives this fun, wonky bird more depth and a nice shine!
Bird Bones stamp was added on the other page of the spread, and I used a fine black pen to extend the branch to the edge of the page, and also to 'finish' it at the end that extends into the page.
A red Copic was used to make dotted lines to 'cross out' the skeletal bird....*
And there you have it...
[*no actual birds were harmed in the making of this art journal spread!]
