Art Journal Cover- Oddball Art Stamps

Hey Lovelies!

Today I’m sharing with you a little project I have completed for Oddball Art Stamps. Using a super fun digital stamp for the monthly Theme Challenge, I decided to jazz up one of my art journal covers. This month’s theme is “Feature a Creature”. I decided to choose this stamp & channel my inner Unicorn Fairy Cool Chick!

So let’s dive in! Here’s the starting cover:

BORRRRRRR-IIINNNNGGGGG!

So I grabbed some papers

Painted it white and affixed the papers

….. looking like a hot mess, but hang in there with me!

Next I colored my digi stamp with colored pencils & picked a spot for my girl

Getting cuter…..

Next, time to grab some paint pens, pastels, more paper, pens, and some Tim Holtz Ideaology sticker phrases & play! This whole process was really a quick, don’t think about it too much, art journal play. Sometimes, when you just trust your instincts and just create, you end up with something you really enjoy. Art Journals are the perfect place to play, experiment, try new things & try out new products! Why? A few reasons: 1, it’s a journal just for you, no one ever has to see it if it turns out to be something you don’t love, 2, it’s just 1 page, so you can create for fun & it won’t take all of your allotted creative time.

If you don’t have an Art Journal, I really encourage you to get a notebook or journal & start by using a page as a warm up. Don’t think too much, just get started. Give yourself 15 minutes(or whatever time frame you’d like) & just start flexing that creative muscle. You’ll be amazed at how freeing it is to just create for fun as well as how much you grow by allowing yourself to play.

So here’s my finished cover. I love all the encouraging phrases, a great reminder as I open it up to create! Let me know what you think!
