Art Journal Page: Say Thanks; with Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit

yt1
Hello! As I mentioned before, here’s my art journal page I created with Simon Says Stamp November card kit. I really like creating any projects with these kits because everything would be matching, so it’s easier to bring things together.

You can watch the video to see how I created this page and what’s inside the card kit

You can also find full list of supplies at the end of the post or on my YouTube channel.

For my background, I wanted to use Infusions. They have Walnut particles, so it makes the page kind of muted and vintage looking, which I love. I used Lemonchello and Golden Sand to create a nice mixture. I applied with gel medium because I wanted to have more control on the look rather than spraying water and having a surprise 🙂 I like the surprise effect as well, but this time I preferred this method.

I also stamped a couple of sentiments from the stamp set that was included in the card kit. This gave a bit more interest to the background. I was after a kind of abstract look, and I really wanted to sue this pattern paper that had hexagons on it, since the moment I saw it. I cut them in their shape, distressed them a bit with Vintage Photo Distress ink and sticked on my page with a look I like.

This idea came to my mind later, and I was lucky I left the previous page empty. I sticked one of the pattern papers in the kit on the edges of my journal. I tore the pages of the original page and made them look like distressed. I inked the white edges with Vintage photo. this gave a more interesting look than before.

I decided to add more texture at the bottom with a gold modelling paste, and I used Tim Holtz stencil. To match this look, I added some metallic sequins on the hexagons. In addition, I made some drops wth the gold Stickles in the kit.

yt3I stamped the sentiment on a card stock, cut it with a shape and added some red ink around the edges. I also gave it a gold bow with a thin thread.

I sticked it with foam squares to have a bit of dimension.

Since the age had red elements, I wanted to carry it to the background a bit with some hearts. I used my favourite punch from Martha Stewart. I punched some red hearts and sticked them on the background.

Lastly, I used my white gel pen to give highlights to my hearts and hexagons.

And that’s the page…Hope you like it, if you do, please don’t forget to leave a comment or subscribe to my blog. See you next time!

  1. A great journal page! I have never seen Infusion powders applied with gel medium before and I love the results, your background looks like wood – definitely something I am going to try, thanks for the inspiration :-). I really enjoyed watching your video too, thank you! J 🙂
