Hello! I'm back today with a tutorial using Darkroom Door's new foot-long Numbers border stamp. The focal point on this page is an expression that always resonates with me: “You have two ears and one mouth. Listen twice as much.” I aspire to follow it.
I started out spraying Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions Ink Sprays plus water on the right side of my journal. Next, I smooshed (technical term) the dry left page into the wet right one to absorb the excess.
I stamped the Numbers border stamp with Distress Ink and heat-embossed it with clear powder.
I do love stencils. Here I've added some very light mists of Dylusions through one of Michelle Ward's StencilGirl stencils.
Use Your Stash
I tore out the right side page, and cut it up into embellishments. After stamping and cutting out the letters, I added old chipboard letters and paper punches to make accents.
Now the hard part: taking the sentiment and practicing it.
I hope you enjoyed this very pink tutorial.
Mixed Media Art Membership Group
I host the Mixed Media Art Membership Group, a monthly membership that includes facilitated learning through a Project of the Month (with closed-captioned video instruction), Themed Challenge of the Month, a live Zoom Create-Along Session where we all work on our art together, and lots of resources such as the Project Vault, Technique Vault and Resource Library. Best of all is the supportive and inspiring community we enjoy in our private Facebook Group and the gated private forum on the site where I host the videos and resources.
The group is only open for new members a few times a year, so please add your name to the waiting list to be the first to know when the doors open again. Click here to add your name to the waiting list.
