Hello friends! I hope you had a good weekend with some crafty time. It is Monday again, and of course a new Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge. This week we have a throwback challenge, which means that you can be inspired by any past challenge.
I was thinking of the challenge that made me start art journaling, something I am very grateful for. I love playing around in my art journals. If you haven't tried art journaling yet, I encourage you to do so, maybe start small such as in a Small Creative Journal, or simply on small pieces of paper that you can bind to create a journal. This week, I enjoyed using my new 8 x 8 in Dylusions journal for the first time. The square format is fun and if you do a double page you get a nice big surface to work on.
The page was made mainly with products by Dina Wakley. For the challenge I was inspired by, the team used an art journaling kit, but the challenge itself was to use Simon Says Stamp Exclusive products. You can find those first journal pages that I made here.
Words and sentiments from Scribbly Fashion Figures, From the Past and All the Gals were stamped repeatedly all over the page, making them both journaling and a design element. I placed the Halves stencil back on the circles and traced around it with a black marker, rubbing some of it with my finger to create a more distressed look. The white dots were added with SSS Medium Dots stencil.
I hope you will join us in our Throwback challenge! As always you have a chance to win a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp. You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.
