White Space -The Sequel

White Space -The Sequel

So, another practice in white space in one of my Dylusions Art Journal.


Again, I started by laying down some gesso- then did some circle stencils with fluorescent paints- the positive and negative side of the stencil. Then used gesso to layer some Julie Fei-Fan Balzer Funky Tag stencil.

Some more gesso smeared around followed by some stamping with Michelle Ward’s shutter stamps- some green gold Golden acrylic paint-and magenta Ultrech acrylic on the inside and outside corners. I did some random pseudo writing with my uni-ball- some dots of Liquid Pearls and finally blobs of black india ink spread around with a straw.  A few other miscellaneous stamping and voila!

I have prolly left a step or two out-but you get the idea I hope.

Here are a few other photos including some close-ups.

Thanks for playing!

Carved Stamps


In my WOYWW post, I mentioned some carved stamps my son made for me-and some of you were interested to get a closer look at them.

I wish I could give you a step by step tutorial, but really Julie-Fei-Fan Balzer has already done that so much better than I could, but I will put some photos of them here so you can see them up close. The train stamp is one my son made for himself (he is an avid train watcher, and to my horror, has actually jumped onto moving trains and ridden them to the next town over!) Here is a link to that blog post if you’re interested.

I told him I just wanted a couple of chevron stamps-one in positive and one in negative-here are the finished stamps.

 What will I do without him when he goes back to school next week?
