Sunday greetings, hope your holiday weekend is going well.
I have an art journal page to link up to my Flowers Challenge at Art Journal Journey, and I also have an ATC to share using a portrait stamp of Frida Kahlo.
First up is my art journal page:
Today I've got Fall flowers and a display page for my front entry foyer for Fall. This is in one of my 7x7 Stonehenge journals.
I was looking through my digital files for a nice flowery Fall image and found this fabulous clipart from TLC Creations. It was a freebie from her private Facebook group. I layered it on papers from a Webster's Pages 6x6 kit I have. And I inked the base page and then stenciled leaves on it.
Close up of the leaf stenciling using DOX Crackling Campfire and Uncharted Mariner on the base page that was inked with Peacock Feathers DI first. DOX layered over DI works very nicely. You can also see the square vellum paper layer on the background because it's a bit translucent. Then a round card stock paper layer, then my image. The deckled edges were made with deco scissors.
Here is this gorgeous TLC digital clipart image closer up. After I resized it in PSE, I used the Type tool to add the sentiment in a typewriter font. I added the flower at top, a recent junk mail find courtesy of St. Jude's.
I am really, really pleased with how this came out. And I know I'll be happy to turn to this page for my display as soon as it's time.

Next up is my ATC:
A 100 Proof Press rubber stamp of Frida, top sentiment stamp is from Vickie Enkoff, bottom sentiment stamp is from Pam Hall (both very old and from Alluring Impressions, I believe), and the tie dye stencil is from TCW.
All stamping was with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and clear powder to heat emboss. I stenciled with Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo, Salvaged Patina and Peacock Feathers DI's using a tie-die stencil. I ran a black Promarker around the outside edge. I left Frida uncolored except for her earring, lips and floral headdress, so she would stand out and I wanted to try the technique at Lift Challenge.
Super-duper pleased with how this one came out as well!
