I am so honored and excited (& a little bit in awe) to be a part of this wonderfully talented team! You’ve just seen Pam's projects and isn't her work awesome! I love her attention to detail, use of colors, and just her all-around great way of working with stamps and paper.
My project features the brand new releases, Dance in the Rain (#SD605b) and Rain Dance (SD642). I was ecstatic when I saw these two stamps! Dance in the Rain just resonates with me and the Rain Dance stamp was a perfect pairing to it.
I created a double page for my art journal using the two stamps. It's not technically involved so everyone should be able to complete one just like it.
Next, mix up some smooth texture paste and a bright shade of blue (I used Art Anthology Mud paste and Fiji Velvet). Using a palette knife, spread your paste randomly over a raindrop stencil (TCW Raindrop).
I like my backgrounds of any wording to be colorful. Here, I sprayed Art Anthology Lark and Glorious onto a sheet of copy paper.
Once that was dry, I stamped Dance in the Rain onto the paper. I wanted the phrase to be broken into two parts, so I carefully removed ink from half the stamp, stamped it, and then repeated the process with the other half. I love to use Versafine ink since it gives a better, darker stamped image.
Using a pair of detail scissors, I cut out the two parts of the phrase.
Next, I stamped Rain Dance onto a sheet of copy paper and cut out.
I decided where I wanted the first part of the phrase to go and adhered it with matte gel medium.
I then placed the last half of the phrase and the Rain Dance image onto the facing page. I wanted the Rain Dance image to be a little darker and shimmery so it would look wet from the rain, so I painted her with Art Anthology Black Leather Jacket Sorbet.
And it's done!
