My project this month is an art journal page.  We often use rubber stamps as a focal point and forget what marvelous tools they are in a wide variety of mixed media projects.  I drew a big heart in the middle of my journal, added a stamped sentiment using alphabet stamps, and stamped all over the background.

The Art Textures, Background Writings, and Text Melange sets gets used a LOT in my journals.   They aren't meant to be stamped perfectly, but rather haphazardly to create pattern, depth, and interest in your composition.
 I hand wrote the "love" and loosely drew scallops around the heart.  I took a tiny little "love" stamp and stamped around the border of the heart.
 I used a white colored pencil and went around the stamped letters and around the heart.  The tip of my pencil was reduced to a nub when I was finished.

Thanks for hopping with me today!  Make sure to head on back to the PWP Blog  Next!!
