Stamp Giveaway! A Journal Page! Fun Techniques Too!

Hi Friends! I have stamps to giveaway today from Art Neko (formally About Art Accents) and all you have to do for a chance to win is leave a comment. The winner will get the 3 stamps (mermaid, ladies and boat)  I used on this page and a $10 gift certificate to Art Neko!

DCF 1.0

This page was fun to make. I was not sure if I was going to make a card or a scrapbook page but I liked the background so much I did not want to cut it down to card size (you can see how I made this background on my Bad Background Paper beads video) so on a journal page it went. Watch this video to see how this page came together:

What do you link of the soda can, yarn and drywall mesh on the page? I think anything is fair game on an art journal layout. The journal I am using is by Canson, the pens are by Micron and the journaling templates were all provided by Oriental Trading Company. I really like the way my letters turned out all wimbly-wobbly by using the template. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and don’t forget to sign up for a chance to win the Art Neko stamps I used. This contest is open to everyone worldwide! I will draw a name at random on Monday, July 21st, 2014.  Also if you happen to shop at Art Neko be sure to use my coupon code Lindsay10% good for 10% off non-sale rubber! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting.

  1. How cool the background turned out once it was dry, Lindsay. I love the finished journal page. The dry wall mesh worked out just right and I love the sun :). I’ve got my fingers crossed that I may be lucky enough to win the stamps, I’m not usually very lucky lol. I’ll leave a comment on you tube as well but I think you like them here on the blog don’t you. xx

    I must tell you that I made a test page using my different glues so I can see which one will work best for the glue resist page project, and two stayed tacky so I decided to put glitter on them right before I came upstairs to take care of my cats.. You probably know where this is going, don’t you? New vial of glitter from my very first purchase of ANY glitter, and while trying to get the top open to be able to use the sprinkler on top, up in the air it went, and red glitter EVERYWHERE!!

  118. Yes anything goes, and that is what makes journaling so much fun. I’m glad you chose to keep your painting intact. It’s too gorgeous to cut into. I like everything about your journal page, and I especially like how you colored the boat. Thanks for giving us the chance to win some neat stuff!

  119. Wow, I have been following you for awhile now and you are so inspiring! Everyone in my family is sooooo artistic and well, me, not so much. I do try though and this looks like so much fun. If I can just gather up my courage to try this technique. I just love the way you seem to be able to blend all kinds of different materials in your pages. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful talent and personality!

  152. Hi Lindsay,
    at first I thought the sun would be way to large for the picture but after you glued the yarn down it just looks great.
    And what a clever idea to let the boat look like it gets raised by the wave! I have to start looking for hidden pictures in my backgrounds, too.
    Thank you for information about sharpening the punches by punching aluminum cans – that’s really useful. AND you get nice little embellishments.
    Love, Tina

  168. CREATIVELY ENTERTAININGLY UPLIFTING !!! That’s what you are girl. I just moved to a very remote island community and have incorporated ocean scenes into my art work. Last week I did a mixed media piece that incorporated a mermaids tale I had made with p/clay. I placed the tale at the top as though she were swimming out of the picture. As you can understand supplies are hard to get but I found the backing of some glass tiles that is somewhat like drywall tape and used as an interesting background, plus some funny yarn much like you used (mine was blues and greens) to look like seaweed. I used a lot of metalics as well. It was as though we were thinking alike when I watched your video with the ocean scene.

    I love your videos and all the tips you give. Please don’t ever stop. I would love to win your stamps as I have a few ocean scene stamps that I press into p/clay to make tiles for a mosaic and would love to do an ocean scene this way.

I was laughing, finding myself not really seeing where you were going which is exactly what my hubby goes through when we is watching me. He likes to know the details, but honestly I can’t even tell him those until I’m done, so now he just scratches his head and walks away until a project is done now instead of trying to get me to explain out my creative path. Heck I don’t even know where I’m going sometimes. =D

  177. Hi Lindsay,
    This is such a marvellous view – To see your image growing from your fingers/hands is so amazing. I know we are not allowed to compare with each other but this is just what I like to be able to do. The way you are making art is so fantastic. I am grateful to find you and watching your videos all I can. I would love to buy the stamps as well but I am afraid that I have to pay 5.8 times the amount (I live in Denmark and our currency is DKK) beside I have to pay Toll as well, I really wish to be that lucky to win this giveaway .. Thank you so much dear Lindsay Weirich.

    Kind regards Mariane
