Karen here, sharing a mixed media journal created with Rita’s Heart Wing Art Foamies stamp. The stamp measures 5 ¾ x 3 ½. The size of the stamp was perfect for this journal. I coordinated this fun stamp with some oxide inks, dyed cheesecloth and dyed ribbon. The journal measures 7 3/4 x 5 ½.
I began this journal by inking some watercolor paper with various oxide inks and water. I used oxide colors: worn lipstick, wilted violet, and fossilized amber. These colors compliment each other well.
After inking the watercolor paper, I resprayed the remaining loose ink with water and inked the Heart Wing stamp with the ink. I heat set the inked watercolor papers and continued adding inks until I was happy with the end result. Then I stamped onto some blank watercolor paper. I created several stampings of the Heart Wing to create several color variations.
I also used the remaining loose ink to coordinate ribbon and cheesecloth to be used on the mixed media journal.
Next, I trimmed the inked watercolor paper down to layering size and tapped some cracked pistachio oxide ink onto the inked watercolor paper. I adhered the inked watercolor paper to a coordinating layer of cardstock. I also cut the Heart Wing stampings out and inked the edges with cracked pistachio oxide ink.
Next, I added dyed honey comb die cuts and cheesecloth to the journal. I then layered 2 Heart Wing stampings together with 3D tape and adhered the Heart Wing layer to the journal.
I applied some wilted violet ink to wooden words and adhered them to the journal. I added dyed ribbon and a crystal charm to finish the journal.
I really enjoyed using the Heart Wing stamp on this journal. The stamp measures 5.75” x 3.5” and can be found using the link below:
