Jane Davenport’s New Artomology Collection

Hello, crafty friends! Today I have something other then a card to share here on my blog (but it is stamping related), not many people know that I actually do drawing, painting and art journaling, I’ve shared a few drawings on Instagram but never anything here on my blog (I’m a chicken). Well one of my favorite artist, Jane Davenport, is having a release of her new Artomology Collection through Spellbinders and the products are incredible. I wanted to create something to show how fun these new products are and to show a few ways to use them.
I used a few of the new Jane Davenport Artomology products to create an art journaling page but everything I used could easily be used in the same way to create a card, which I’ll show you in another blog post. I wanted my art journaling page to show how versatile the new Colorsticks are, how creamy, rich and vibrant the colors are and how you can used them directly on your page, or how you can watercolor with them or apply the Colorstick directly onto your stamp and stamp with them. Below you can see how I colored directly on the flower stamp with a Colorstick, then misted it with a spray bottle and stamped it not just once but twice and it still came out nice.
The first thing I did to create my art journaling page was to use the new stamp set Colour is Happiness. I used the image of the girl and stamped her twice in black ink, tilting the stamp a bit on the second girl. Once I had my girls stamped, I decided on my color palette and swatched five of the blue hued Colorsticks along the left edge of my page coloring directly on the page with each stick and then applying some water. Next I focused on adding some color to each of the girls faces by using Jane’s Birthday Suit Palette Pastels and applied them using some Baton BlendersI added some Baby Blues and Limpid Pool Colorstick for the eyes and some Make a Moue for the lips. After that, instead of having my girls just floating on the page I wanted to ground them, so I took a few of the Colorsticks and scribbled the colors onto a scrap piece paper then using a paintbrush added water to the Colorsticks and watercolored a square around my stamped images. Once my background was dry, I stamped three of the flower image that came in the Colour is Happiness stamp set. You can apply the Colorstick directly onto the clear stamp then spray it lightly with water and stamp it onto your page. To add texture to my background I used the Colorsticks to draw lines, dots, dashes and swirls then blended them with my watercolor brush. I stamped the Colour is Happiness along the left corner and enhanced the stamped images and hair using an Ultimate Waterproof Black Lace pen. This was so fun to create!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Don't forget, you can follow me on InstagramTwitter and Pinterest to see what I'm up to.
