Happy Monday! It is time for another Whimsy Video. I created an Art Journal page which will actually be going into my December Daily album. I like to incorporate my love of stamping and coloration into my DD album every year.
I used two brand new products that were just released this October along with a couple of older Christmas/Winter themed products. I wanted to create my own background paper for this page and have a scattering of snowflakes in both embossed and die cut forms. The Whimsy sentiment set and Snowflake dies were just what I needed to create the look I wanted.
I used Antique Linen and Walnut Stain distress inks over top of watercolor paper that was cut to measure 6x8”. Then I randomly embossed snowflakes in varying sizes and styles over the paper. I used adhesive backed felt and the snowflake dies to cut out different sizes of snowflakes. I used Sharpie white poster paint to create the dots that are scattered all over.
The sentiment is stamped with Ranger Archival ink and I like the pop that it creates against the neutral background.
