Home for Christmas Art Journal page - Susan k Weckesser

I wanted to share my first 'official' project as a DT member for Susan K Weckesser.   I decided to make an art journal page (partly because I had a new journal begging for some attention, and partially because Susan designs super cute stamps).

The background was made with Dylusions spray inks.  The awesomely opaque white marker is from Zig / Kuretake. I want this marker in every colour!

I made my own 'washi tape' with the washi tape stamps, by stamping on tissue paper, then tearing it and adhering like it was tape.  It's a fun way to use these stamps, and I can see me using this technique again.

I wanted to use this cute house stamp  as a collage element, so I stamped it on white cardstock, coloured it, and then cut it out and glued it to my page.  I did the same with the cloud stamp.

I used the "Splatter it" stamp and the banner from the "Create your Day" set as texture stamps in the background.   The funky letters are old-as-dirt rub-ons from Doodlebug, but they still work great!

Thanks for visiting!
