30 Days of Creativity - Day 4

If you are just joining me this month I am on a journey of 30 days of Creativity (see original post HERE) and today is DAY 4!  Have you seen the Prima Doll Stamps?  I am IN LOVE!  I think I may now have them all... Well 12 of them anyway (grin) and I have been playing around with creating tags using these lovely ladies as inspiration and adding an empowering saying...  so on Day 4 of my Creative journey I am revealing one of these lovely ladies ....
My process is pretty simple... First I create a whole bunch of background cards using paints, sprays, pastes and stencils, then I stamp and paint or color and cut out a whole bunch of my lovely ladies, now I get to match each image to a background and pick an empowering saying to go along with her.
What I love about these stamps is that you can stamp and color the entire image OR you can stamp and color only her body and then using the stamp - cut her clothes out of paper or cloth or anything - the possibilities are ENDLESS!
For this tag I used a stencil, modelling creme and dylusion sprays on my background and I painted the entire image using inkaGold paints.  I love how this product acts like water color paint but shimmers when it is dry (because you KNOW I love anything that sparkles!).  I picked a saying that resonated with me and added a few stamped images from my new Frog's Whiskers stamps - a piece of matching ribbon so you can hang the tag anywhere and she's done!
Tomorrow I will reveal another of these lovely ladies where I used the paper piecing technique and cut out her dress from some lovely hand-printed paper I have had forever.

Thanks for stopping by today and joining me on this journey... I cannot wait to share what else the creativity Gods are passing on down through me...

  1. Lovely! I have a few of these doll stamps and haven't created with them yet. Did you use inkaGold paints for the girl or Copic Markers?

    1. Thank you for the kind comments Lee-Anne... to answer your question I used inka Gold paints and 140lbs water color paper for my girl. I used the Inka gold paints just like you use the Tim Holtz distress markers - with my craft mat and pools of water and just kept adding and taking away color... this stechnique worked REALLY REALLY well...smile... AND it was fun.

    the fresh greens and the fabulous sentiment work a treat. Add to that that you used Inka Gold and it is one WOW creation.
    I shared you on my Time To Create Facebook Page.
