Stampotique Anything Goes Challenge - Christmas Cactus + Video

I'm so excited for today's post! I have been keeping a secret for 4 months and I can finally share... I am now a very happy member of the Stampotique Design Team! I am so excited to be a part of such a talented team and working with such a wonderful stamp company!

Today marks a new release of stamps and the start of a new challenge that everyone can get behind... Anything Goes! You can join the challenges on the Stampotique Facebook page. I used the brand new Christmas Cactus stamp and Snowglobe stamp to create a fun desert-theme Christmas card.

It's difficult to capture in photos, but there is acetate on top of the globe to give it a snowglobe vibe. I've also put together a video creating the card. Click here to watch the tutorial!

New Year New Art Journal Page

Happy New Year! I've decided to kick off the new year with a very quick art journal page using my favorite (bright) color combinations. The entire page took 25 minutes, which includes in-between drying time.

I found a blank canvas page in my Dina Wakley Media Journal, gesso'd it, and got painty!

I started with Dina Wakley Media acrylic paints in the colors Blushing, Turquoise, Lemon, and Lapis. I applied the paints dry (without water on my brush) so I got the messy brushstroke look and also overlapped some of the colors without them mixing too much.

Once the acrylic paint was dried, I added small marks with my Liquitex Paint Markers in Titanium White, Cadmium Yellow, and Fluorescent Blue. I also added small streaks of gold with my Kuretake Starry Colors watercolor palette.
