Journal page using Cowboy Boot Stamp

Hello Everyone, Shilpa here,

I am sharing with you a fun journal page using Rita’s Cowboy Boot stamp.

To start with, I used black archival ink on this stamp to get a lovely crisp image on my textured paper.

To create the background on the white mixed media paper, I applied white gesso first and let it dry completely.

I sprayed teal and yellow inks and dried it on the surface by using a heat tool.

I created splatters with same inks and brush.

Then I added the Cowboy Boot stamp image onto the surface.

I created outlines around the Cowboy Boot stamp. using a black marker.

Lastly, I added journaling words and sequins…. and my Cowboy Boot . art journal page was ready.

You could turn this into a card, invitation or even a canvas! We would love to see what you create, please leave us a link below or tag us on FB @RitaBarakat1 or Instagram @RitaBarakatart!

Thanks so much for stopping by.









 I love when you get a good photo and you weren’t even trying! I love this photo of the little ones!
A Sunday afternoon on the way home from church we stopped and decided to take a few pictures.
I think this is one for the scrapbook room! ( As soon as the house gets finished!)
I decided to use some stuff from my stash – I love this Heidi Swapp resist paper, I really wish she’d make more. I did see that Tim Holtz has some Kraft resist paper out, haven’t tried that yet.
The floral paper is Prima, so is the bling. I used Distress inks for the colors.
Meanwhile thanks for the well wishes on my ankle! I do not need surgery- YAY!
I am in a boot instead of a cast – YAY!
It could take 4-6 weeks to heal – BOO!
The good still outweighs the bad!
I really , truly am trying to take it easy…
I have graduations(priorities) to attend next month (including my sons!)
and I don’t want to do it in a boot!
Hope you are having a great day!
