Color By Faith Blog Hop with Joy Clair!

Hi, Connie here with an art journal page, using two of the Joy Clair stamps sets from the Color By Faith Collection.  One of the sets is from the new release called Blossom and the other is called Prayer Warrior.  Joy Clair stamps are designed to go together when creating a project, so keep that in mind.  Grab a stamp from different sets and mix it up.

I started by using a background I had cleaned my roller on.  Vintage paper was added along with some watered down paint.  Stencils were added with modeling paste for dimension. The cactus images were stamped, in random spots, and then colored with acrylic paint.

The cactus images were outlined with white acrylic paint.  The sentiments were stamped with black archival ink and then highlighted, using a water brush, with Distress Oxide ink.  This was done on watercolor paper.  The edges of the watercolor paper were torn and then adhered to vintage book paper.  The inside of some of the letters were highlighted with green watered down acrylic paint.
