February is here and love is in the air! Hearts, red and pink scream everywhere you go and they just make me happy! This time of the month I get to create sweet Valentine’s for loved ones, they want special cards, notes, packages to show their loved ones how much they mean to them. Personally, I love to add a new entry in my art journal that will for sure inspire a card and with so many products to choose from well it’s easy to be excited about crafting!
Step 1: The Scribbly Girls stamps by Dina Wakley has some scribbly heart goodness and my palette is Ruby, Bubblegum Pink, White Linen and Gold.
Step 2: Using an old credit card, a Craft Scraper or a spatula, scrape some paint in a random pattern across your page. We are creating a happy background here, just get messy and free!
Step 3: Grab one of Dyan’s stencils and using the White Linen and your brush, in my case, my fingers, fill some random circles in your background. I’ve chosen to go on a diagonal for eye movement!
Step 4: Using your Emboss it Ink Pad, along with some Gold Embossing Powder, stamp the scribbly hearts in your journal page.
Step 5: The fun part about using a Fude ball pen is that you get to write over acrylic paint! Take advantage of the curves. Dyan’s acrylic block is not just for stamping. It’s made for a lot of things, one of them journaling! Using your pen, draw curvy lines to write in your page.
Once your lines are written go over your chosen words in long and short strokes filling up your lines.
You can finish it up by adding some small talk stickers!
