I’ve wanted to make black sheep with the lamb from the Stinkin’ Cute stamp set ever since it was released.
I’ve got this tiny little art journal I use in part because the bigger sizes take me too long to complete… and maybe in part because I feel a little like are supplies are too costly to keep filling pages just for play. But that’ silly, I know!
Several of my art journal pages have to do with how much my friends mean to me, and I really believe in encouraging independent thought and fostering individual uniqueness. This one is about the friends who encourage me to let my freak flag fly by flaunting their own brand or weirdness.
These pages rarely end up looking anything like the ideas they started out as, it just takes a little faith and bravery to see them through.
This one started with a rose print pattern paper from the Ooh La La paper pad by Craft Smith, stenciled over Tim Holtz’s Harlequin layering stencil with Beetle Black acrylic paint, blended with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and embellished with a mixture of Golden Matte Medium mixed with Copperplate Gold calligraphers ink by Dr. Ph Martin.
Dies include stitched nested circles for the gold ring, and Wonky Wavy stitched rectangle dies by Katscrappiness. Stamp sets used include Little Acres Creations “Stinkin’ Cute” for the lamb, Tim Holtz “Butterfly Melange” for the sentiment, and Tim Holtz “Papillon” for the scripture background stamp.
