You Are My Happy ~ Inspired by Bloobel Stamps images

Hi everyone! it's been a super busy couple of weeks but I made some time to finish colouring these two lovelies from Bloobel Stamps. Bekkah Bloom was the Facebook group freebie a couple of weeks ago when Lisa was celebrating reaching 100 followers. The other one called Heart Moustache seemed like the perfect partner for Bekkah. They were destined to meet on this art journal page :)

I coloured Bekkah and HM with a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils. They were then fussy cut leaving a narrow white border. Black cardstock matting was adhered and trimmed out before they were each popped up on foam tape to add dimension and create shadows.

The 6 x 8 inch mixed media paper background was spritzed with Cocklebells Coral and Marigold Yellow Orange Lindy's Starburst sprays. While still wet, TCW's Spinning Tops stencil was placed on top and spritzed through with Autumn Maple Gold Starburst spray. It was then flipped over onto the right side of the background to print the messy negative pattern. The background was dried and stamped using Brilliance Archival Rocket Red Gold ink, a text and a dotty circle stamp.

A strip of French text paper was adhered at the ground level and brushed with White Linen Dylusions paint. Tiny flowers were punched from mop-up paper, shaped with a stylus, and given Buttercup Liquid Pearls centers. Four lengths of purple striped washi tape were added to the edges of the background and topped with tiny purple buttons. Tiny punched hearts were added between Bekkah and HM.

The sentiment from Create With TLC was printed on white cardstock, trimmed close, and matted with black. It was popped up on foam tape and adhered between the two. Jet Black Archival ink was used to apply little splatter dots. Dark Purple Archival ink was used to add the X and O letter stamps here and there. Doodling and outlining were added with a fine black pen before Dark Purple Archival ink was sponged on the edges. To finish the page, black Big Brush Pen was used to darken the edges and black matting was added to the background to frame it.

Thanks for popping by today. Bekkah, HM, and I appreciate your fine company. Be sure to stop by Bloobel Stamps to see more of Lisa's fabulous quirky images. You will surely come away inspired.

Life is good; so is art.
