Irre: Hello everyone. New challenge. And today I'm sharing an art journal page.
For this one, I used ink sprays and played with the background with stencils and stamps.
As the focal point, I had a lot of fun by using some tree dies together with flower stamps. To both trees and flowers, I did some doodling too with a white pen.

I'm really pleased with the result.  Love to see your creations!



Polkadoodles products used: 
Accents Stencil, 6x6"


Jane - I have decorated a page in my A6 art journal again this month.  I used my gel press, lots of accent stamps and a stencil to create the background...

...this gorgeous lady and dragonfly were coloured with watercolours.





Polkadoodles Products Used:
Stamps
Stencil
Pretty Butterfly

Terry: I have made a Autumn butterfly card, lots of distress ink colors on my background and topped with Gesso, the background has been worked on with the Texture Galore, Honey Daisy and Vintage Text Stampsets. The Doodle Borders stampset is used all around my card. I embossed the butterflies and colored them too, a bit of shimmer on them and sentiments from the sentiments pad.






The products that I have used are:

Eulanda - I made this canvas which is not my usual thing, if you want to find out more you can see here...I used the Pretty Butterfly stencil with some white gesso & the Ula "Be Yourself" clear stamp set, which is available from Polkadoodles stockists world-wide. 
She just screamed mixed media so I first colored her using my Prismacolor pencil crayons and then added some texture images from the Textures Galore stamp set.  
I also added and colored in the Great Outdoors sun using distress inks.  Oh and there is a similar image in the store with a few great sentiments as well as more fabulous Ula images. My papers are from the Bright & Beautiful and Sweet Tweet 6" x 6" craft paper packs. On this side of the canvas I used the Unicorns & Rainbows and Winter Accents 6" x 6" stencils for the big stars and small patterned stars.  You can find out more about my process over on my blog here...




Lou: I decided to make an inky style card paying no real attention to my colouring splodging & splattering the water colour inks. I've mixed the floral images from the Pretty Perfect & Brighter with You stamp sets. I created the background using the frames from the Perfect Wishes sentiment & Frames stamp set, colouring as per the flowers and then further splatts added with white gesso. As a finishing touch, I've added a few sequins.




Gorgeous projects as always!

So let's find out what the Design Team have made this month!...

Corry Hey there crafters.   This time I have made a card with the beautiful flower stamp pretty perfect...For the background I used distress inks and different stamps....At first I stamped the flower on the card.  I blended the leaves with chlorine bleach. After that, I stamped the flower again - I have colored the flowers and butterflies and then I cut it out and glued them on the card. Finally, I placed some glitter on the flower and butterflies...


Terry: Hi there, This time I made a couple of Art Journal Pages, just love to play around with stamps on the background, started with Distress inks, after that I played with all kinds of smaller stamps, from the Honey Daisy, Stampsoup Lemonade Fizz, Texture Gallore, Lavender Tea, Making Faces, Papillon. Bella Fleur, Regal Peacock and Funky Alphabet Stampset, stamped the girls on both pages and colored them with pencils and with inks. With a stencil I placed the swirls and used Modelling Paste for it and mixed orange acrylic paint in with it. And last but not least I stamped some sentiments on the art journal pages.



Irmelin: Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing a canvas I've made with one of the many digital stamps that are in the store. The one I chose was from the Stick & Bones collection. I colored this one with Copic Sketch. The colored image I glued to one canvas and started to add elements. I added fiberglass tape, wood bits from the canvas, string, and branches. I also made a mixture of art stones and glue that I adhered to the canvas. I colored the canvas with ink sprays and decorated with flowers. Finally, I added a title. Hope you will enjoy my project this month!


Jane – I love my art journals at the moment and played with my A6 version today. I used glitter pens and watercolours to create a crazy coloured background and added lots of lovely Stamp Soup stamps for interest. 
The focal point is one of the stunning Oddella digis coloured with pencils.

Here's the products the team used...

Gorgeous projects as always!
