Art Journal Page: Dare to be different


Hope you had nice days over Christmas. After a crazy busy autumn I also had the opportunity to take off a few days, spend time with my family, and also relax at my crafting table. So to sum it up: Perfect holidays!

A new year has started and so has a new Craft Stamper magazine blog challenge. Again, "anything goes" as long as you have used stamping somewhere on your project. Easy, isn't it!

Our generous January sponsor is Visible Image; a company that I had the pleasure to work with for 2 years. Below you can read the greetings from Visible Image lovely couple Helen and Mark to all Craft Stamper challenge participants:
"Visible Image design exciting and different stamps and stencils! Our sets include arty images and brilliant background elements, and some really inspiring quotes. Our clear photopolymer stamps are very deeply etched, and our stencils are gorgeously thick for creating divine texture!
We are really excited to be exhibiting at Creativation this month.. hope to meet some of you there!"

One lucky challenge participant will win these two A5 stamp sets by Visible Image:

My January project is an art journal page in my Moleskine book:

It was a fun page to make: There are several layers of acrylic paints and stamped and stencilled patterns in the background, and a cool stamped and colored image in the front. Dog dog stamp is a fun design by Carabelle Studio, and the quote is from a stamp set by our lovely sponsor Visible Image.
I love playing with contrasts between bright colors and black&white!

I hope you get inspired to play along!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
