The Tall dog is from “Winston and Lulu,” the smaller dogs are from the clear stamp set called “Puppy Tales.”
The background was originally a 2 page spread, that I did about drinking coffee and only talking to my dogs in the morning. But my small journal came apart a little bit, so I took some pages out and added washi tape to keep all the remaining pages intact. Since the right side is missing, I just covered up this page w/ Dylusional Dogs.
I am in the process, when the time and mood hits, of making a Sarcastic themed Art Journal Book. I picked up a hard bound book from the Good Will, and I took some of the pages out. The pages that I left, I added white Gesso on some and Black Gesso on others. I have not as of yet covered the front and back cover, I still haven’t decided on what I want on it. I plan on making all the pages in this book with some kind of snark to it. Sometimes snarky can be just as up-lifting as Chopra.
This page started off with me using my Ranger Gel Plate and the Dylusions paints in White Linen, Dessert Sand, and Balmy Night.
I sponged white ink through the small Key Hole Dylusions stencil. I drew the boarder lines with the Dylusion Journal Block. Using a white Posca pen.
The head is from the stamp set called: Pandemic DYR76827. I stamped onto Xpress it, paper and colored it with Copic Sketch markers.
The body and swirls, I cut out of the “Coloring Sheets DYA48428.” I colored them with Copics.
I stamped the houses from stamp set called, “Right Up Your Street,” onto journal paper that I pulled out of my large Dylusions Journal book, that was sprayed with, Dirty Martini, Cut Grass, Vanilla Custard, & Fresh Lime. I also had paper that was sprayed using, Bubble Gum, Funky Fuchsia and Crushed Grape.
I came across a Meme that read: People keep telling me “if you don’t wear your mask, you don’t care about other people.” I thought I had already made that pretty clear. It had a grumpy looking older man in the picture. I think it’s a funny and sarcastic comment, and this page looks great in my Sarcastic Art Journal Book. Plus is was fun to create. As soon as I saw that meme, I knew right away I was going to use that Pandemic head stamp. I really like going to my stash of “Coluring Sheets” by Dyan for bodies. I cut them out but still every bit of the coloring in my art journal pages.
I used the FSJ background die called “Floral View,” with the Turbo Teal card stock, and cut out two. The color name of the card stock behind the die is called “Electric Lime.” The card stock card base on the left is Sour Lemon. The small flowers were cut from the FSJ die called, “Spring Blooms Mini.”
The sentiment on the left has been popped up on foamies, and both of the card fronts are popped up as well.
I used gems from Stampin’ Up! in the center of the tiny flowers.
Thank you for your visit to my blog, and thank you for your comments.
I made this birthday card for a friend’s daughter, who turned 15. She loves cats, so I thought this would be funny for her.
For this birthday card I pulled paper out of my large Dylusions journal, and sprayed it with Dylusions Ink sprays in Cut Grass, Fresh Lime, I used the small Flower stencil. Cat stamps are Puddy Cat. and the big cat’s head moves. “Branching Out” was stamped on top. The leaves were colored with inky water brushes in Chopped Pesto. “Just Breathe” was stamped at the bottom. The cats were colored using “Lemon Zest, Pure Sunshine, Squeezed Orange, and London Blue.” Bug is from “Toadstool Town,” colored w/ watered down Bubble Gum.
I have 2 Memory Dex cards to share with you today.
I consider these Mixed Media Mem-Dex cards. Because, I pulled the paper out of my large Dylusions journal. I then sprayed them using Dylusions Ink Sprays in Dirty Martini, Cut Grass, Vanilla Custard, & Fresh Lime. I then cut the MDCs out using my Cricut and a file that I bought off of Etsy.
For the Blue Egg, I pulled paper out of the Creative Journal. For the orange looking egg in the top MDC, I used paper from the Creative Journal also. For the 2 Pink Eggs, I used left over Journal paper that I pulled out and created last week, using Bubble Gum, Funky Fuchsia and Crushed Grape. The egg stamp is from Fun Stampers Journey.
The bunny heads & their tales, are from the clear set called Heads n Tails. (colored w/ Copics.)
I have made Memory Dex cards. I got a little obsessed with them and made a few of them.
To make this Mem Dex card, AKA MDC, I pulled journal paper out of my large Dylusions Art Journal book. I sprayed it using Dylusions ink sprays, in Dirty Martini, Cut Grass, Vanilla Custard, & Fresh Lime. I then cut out 4 MDCs using my Cricut. I bought a file off of Etsy it included 16 different designs.
Using foam squares, I popped up the dog, -from Puppy Tales (a clear stamp,) and I also popped up the Bunny Face Mask. They were colored using Copic sketch markers.
The eggs are from a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set.
For the top and bottom, I stamped onto the cut out MDC, using the Dylusions Stamps: Oodles of Foliage and Toadstool Townstamps. These were also colored using Copic markers.
I used needle and thread on the bunny mask, shown closer below.
The Hoppy Spring sentiment is a stamp from Fun Stampers Journey. I used Posca pens for doodling.
