What if the Trees weren't Green!

Happy Tuesday,

I hope everyone enjoyed the Bank Holiday weekend - I can't believe the next bank holiday will be Christmas!!

It's my turn to post over at Studio 12 for Polkadoodles today and I have a page from my art journal to show you. I have used some of the gorgeous new Studio 12 acrylic stamps which are now back in stock in the PD store. Here's what I made ...

Stamps used include:

Dreamy Trees (I adore these!)
Distressed Zig Zags (around the edges)
Shabby Owl Blossom (for the leaves)

The background was coloured using three distress stains (mustard seed, dried marigold and fired brick), then I added a little interest to the background using a stencil, a bottle lid and a little white acrylic paint. I stamped the border and the leaves using black archival ink and stamped the trees onto book pages before colouring with my Promarkers. The wording was printed on my pc.

Why not pop over to the Polkadoodles store now and order your stamps - I would love to see your creations.

Hugz, Jan xx
