Simon Says Stamp Art Journal Blog Hop!


Hi everyone! Welcome to a very special Blog Hop! The Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge designers have all created an ART JOURNAL entry using the Stamptember® Art Journal Kit!!! I'm thrilled to be joining this group today with my own entry.





I've put together a video with the full process for you.



 Your next stop on the hop is the talented Candy Colwell.

Once you’re finished ‘hopping’ please head over the our challenge group blog here to participate in this week’s challenge: Celebrate STAMPtember® by creating a project that uses any product  Simon Says Stamp carries in the online store! As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp online store! Just make sure to enter your project on the challenge blog linked above for your chance to win!

Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an interest in exclusively selling rubber stamps. It didn’t take long until we realized we couldn’t stop there. During the past 11 years we celebrate rubber stamping in its full glory by giving access to people around the world to a one stop shop. Rubber stamps still remain the heart of our business and we are celebrating by hosting a STAMPtember® event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the greatness of rubber stamping. Part of the enticement of rubber stamping is that stamps can be used in creating or complementing ANYTHING! From stamping dates on bank documents and postage parcels in the early 18th century, rubber stamping has dramatically expanded to include card making, scrapbooking, mixed media, life documenting, art journaling, and many forms of altering and expressing art.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oooh very pretty. I like how you've gone against the grain and that instead of covering white you've made it shine out. This leads to it looking fresh and vibrant.

I love this journal page! I cannot wait to do a page inspired by it. I really had never thought of using the stencil the way you did; I have a chicken-wire stencil that I am going to try that with. I have been meaning to post this to you- what brand of brushes do you use? especially your gesso brush? Thank you for this video!
