Art Journal Page with Joy Clair and Therm-o-web~

Hi guys!
It is my turn on the Joy Clair Blog.  We are
doing a cross promotion using the fabulous products from


I created a journal page using the Be Brave stamp set
by Joy Clair and stencils, gel medium and 3D foam squares
 by iCraft/Thermoweb.

The background, for the pages, were created using watered down Distress Oxide inks.  Stencils and Metallix gel, by iCraft/Thermoweb, were also added for texture.  The Be Brave stamp images were stamped directly on the art journal page and several were colored in using the Distress Oxide inks.  The focal sentiment was stamped an embossed with black embossing powder on gray cardstock.  The side edges of the paper were torn for a distressed look.  The sentiment was adhered to the art page using 3D foam squares by Thermoweb. 

After the background is created, add the stencils and the Metallix gel, for texture.  Dry the Metallix gel with a heat tool.  Add the sentiment and stickers (if you like).  The thing about creating in an art journal is it is really hard to mess up.  Add more paint, gel medium or stamps until you get the look you are after.  So fun to create using stamps!!  Joy Clair will be celebrating their 5th Anniversary very soon.  Check out all those oldies but goodies stamps in the online store  (affiliate link) ~great sets that work together.  That is all a stamper really wants!!

Thanks for stopping by~
