Artist Trading Cards with Whales

Hi there!

Recently Rubber Dance released a  new stamp set called Whale Wishes, that I have designed. Before I finished this set I drew lots of whales. Some are painted with watercolours. I scanned them and made myself some printables.
Today I can share some Artist Trading Cards with them.

In addition to my printables I used stamps from Rubber Dance.
Thank you for stopping by!

Art Journal Page Tutorial

Hi there!

It's a long time ago since I've been posting a full tutorial directly on my blog! Today I'd like to share a step by step process for this art journal page:

Here is what I've done:

Add some old book paper with DecoArt Media Matte Medium and cover it with a thin layer of Gesso.

Add DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics to the page. Use a kitchen cloth to add some texture.

Add a little bit more colour. Use a baby wipe to remove it in some areas.

Stamp the tree (stamp comes from Visible Image) onto Tissue paper and adhere it with Gel Medium. Add more texture with stamps directly onto the page with StazOn inks. Finally add some gold Fluid Acrylics.

Add some more colour with Faber-Castell Oil Pastels. Blend the paint with your fingers.

Add a little more stamping to finish it up.

In addition to Visible Image stamps I used stamps from Rubber Dance and Viva Las VegaStamps!.
I hope you like it!
xx Susanne.
