SSS Use Some Green


Good morning friends,

I have a double page spread in my Dylusions large journal book to share with you all today.

I have used “Some Green” and would like to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog: “Use Some Green.”

Here is the left side of the book:


The background started off as wipe offs from my brayer when using my Gel Press.  Later on I added Dylusions paint and my round Gel Press and various Dylusions stencils.

I opened up my package Grungeboard by Tim Holtz. The paper that come with it was fascinating to me, and I immediately thought to myself that I need to put this in my Journal book. So that is what I did last night and I pulled out my container filled with Tim Holtz pre-cut outs of  “Paper Dolls,” and the “Botanical Layers” cut-outs. I did the right side of my book first, however I am showing the left side first.

The banner is a left over from making the Dylusions Tag blogged HERE. The GREEN leaves on the right side of this page is leftovers from this Tag blogged HERE. The tiny house at the bottom right is from Dylusions stamp set “This Old House,” colored with Copic markers. The flower on top of the woman’s head is from a Dylusions clear stamp.

Now for the Right side of the book:


There is the paper insert from my Grungeboard package!! Don’t you just love it!! It has the definition and then that beautiful swirl on the left! Yikes! It’s just yummy!

I used 6 different Tim Holtz cut-outs on here and the thick die by TH called “Honeycomb.” The BG was brayer wipe-offs, then random stencils added using Dylusions paints.


Thank you for stopping by my blog today and thank you for leaving me comments.

Stay crafty! And come share with me your art style on my Facebook group!



Simon Says: Art Journaling


Good evening crafty friends,

I  creates a 2 page spread in my Dylusions Large Art Journal Book. I am entering this into the Simon Says Challenge blog for the Monday Challenge called “Simon Says: Art Journaling.”


I used the following Dylusions stamp sets:

“Bits if This” Ranger Dylusions BITS OF THIS Portrait Skull Cling Bees Collage Rubber Stamps  I used the skull head w/ the hat. I stamped one regularly, and the other head I stamped on a reversing block so “she” would be face the opposite way. The heads where colored with Copic Sketch markers. I also used the bugs on here and stamped them all over.

“Passage of Time” Image result for dylusions stamp time clockwas used for “Her” dress, and her legs are from the set called “Legs.”  I colored this dress with Dylusions Pain Pens.

“Winston & LuLu” Image result for dylusions stamp time clock I used the Winston’s coat & bow tie for “Him,” and a pair of “Legs.” Colored using Dylusions Pain Pens.

“Legs”These were colored using Dylusions Pain Pens.

“Doodle Parts”The swirly thing was stamped using green ink pad onto sticker paper, detailed cut and pasted. I then added some Dylusions “Cut Grass” spray ink watered down and painted over it, so it’s not stark white.

“Mischievous Malcom”Ranger Dyan Reaveley\'s Dylusions Cling Stamp Collections, 8.5 by 7-Inch, Mischievous Malcom This set was used on the right side of the journal book. Malcom’s head was colored with Prismacolor pencils, his outfit  was colored  using Dylusions Pain Pens. The Monster was colored with Copic markers. I added googly eys to it. The tree was painted with watered down Dylusions ink spray in “Melted Chocolate.”

I added stickers from stash that read: Dearly (I wrote Departed) Forbidden, Lovers, & Forever. I took the picture of this AJ page outside in the bright sun, so the foil stickers do not show up in the photo. The “Wool of  Bat” and “Nevermore” are some leftover G-45 paper.

The left side started out as a Gel Press print, just using wavy lines. The right side was also a pull from the Gel Press. I used the Dylusions Large stencil “Keyhole” Image result for large keyhole stencil dylusionsusing Dylusions paints Lemon Zest & Pomegranate Seed.  I didn’t like it too much so I did a wipe off on it. Then I started adding things on top.

“Graphic Background” and “Boarding on the Edge” Bordering on the Edge - Dylusions Rubber Stamp Set by Dyan Reaveley, 6 pieces: borders, swirls, letters, alphabet (DYR34599) - Only One Life Creations these were stamped randomly on top of both sides.

I added googly eyes for fun.
