Sunshine and Rain and Snowstorms, Oh My!


Hey Oddball Fans!  I am sneaking in today to share a little art journal page I created using a couple of digital stamp from Oddball Art.  I pulled a couple of the oldest digital stamps and play with today.  I grabbed IMG14 Happy & Sad Kawaii Clouds and IMG15 Kawaii Clouds Rain & Snow to create a cloud themed journal page.

EK Gorman, Oddball Art aI started my project by printing out the two digital stamps.

EK Gorman, Oddball Art dPulling out my 5″x8″ Dylusions art journal, I opened to a page that had tons of paint already scrapped onto it.  I tend to use any extra paint left over from projects inside my art journals leaving tons of pages just waiting to be created.  Today, I thought this page was a perfect jumping place for my weather clouds.

EK Gorman, Oddball Art eI started with the sunshine cloud, pulling out a sun stencil and mixing up some molding paste with yellow acrylic paint and gold acrylic paint, leaving the mixture streaky.  I pressed the paste mixture into the stencil and let it dry.

EK Gorman, Oddball Art jUsing some Fabre Castle pitt pens, I added a some detailing and more color to the page.  I drew a squiggly boarder around the art journal and filled it in with some raven black sparks paint from prima.

EK Gorman, Oddball Art kI hope you got a kick out seeing how I pulled together this weather inspired journal page.  Do you use digital stamps in your art journals?
