If you haven't tried the new Specialty Stamping Paper from Ranger....well you're really missing out on a fantastic Stamping Experience.
I'd had mine for about a week. Didn't think I'd be hopping for joy.
I was wrong...there's nothing like this stuff. I was REALLY impressed, and it takes a lot to impress me.
Here I stamped it with the Jet Black Archival Ink, dried it with the Heat It Tool, and colored it in with the Distress Markers.
It's like an engraved image. I kid you not.
VERY, VERY COOL STUFF!
Then I had started a Journal page using the Dylusions Spray Inks on an earlier post in my large Sketchbook Journal.
Here is the left side after lots of white ink, Distress Markers, and a few more bits and pieces.
This is the right hand side of the journal.
This stamp from Remnants is absolutely the most fun to stamp over several sprayed colors.
Then keep expanding outward with more pen marks and colors to make the bright colors even brighter.
I love how the Foamie stamp at the top and bottom look with the white pen around it.
It had gotten a bit dark, so the stamped and cutout wings added enough light to brighten up that side again.
LOVE the colors coming through the letters here, don't you?????
I saw a video lately where she glued 2 pages together in a composition book for more stability.
So that's what made my Journal work better, less wrinkles, and so now I'm happy working in it again.
I wish I could tell you who said this on the video, but I've been through so many, I can't honestly remember where I saw it. Just know it wasn't my idea.
Make it your own idea and give it a shot. An old trick from Altered Book days is to put a piece of paper in between the next set of pages so your glue doesn't make them all stick together.
Funny how all things seem to come back and work together at the end of the day.
And now, just a few pictures of what's been going on in my world...
Fantastic ATCs from Lori Hassler, Donna Lewis, Candy Colwell, Sarah Engels-Greer!!!
(Lori made the top left and bottom right ones!)
Erin and the girls getting ready for MJHS Jazz Band in the Street...her 1st solo, and she ROCKED it!
She's a 5th grader, but made the Jr. High band.
Little Sister Emma climbed a tree to watch her sis.
We gave soccer feet a pedicure today...and drew flowers and dots on lime-green toe nails.
And their daddy's Symphonic Band playing at Super-State at the Uof I.
Congrats to all for their hard work.
And tonight we had HUGE blasts of lightning and thunder in the NE sky....while the Super Moon minus 1 day was shining away in the Southern sky!
Looks like an egg!
Have a great week everyone.
