Art Journaling With Unity And Ippity

Hey Guys, I’ve been playing in my art journal with paints, stamps and inks and thought I would give you a peak at how it turned out. I know, I know it isn’t a card but I just can’t help myself – LOL!

I built up some textures with layers of paint, bits of newspaper and book pages. Then added the top colour with my Neocolor watercolour crayons. The stamps I used were the Stars and moons from the Ippity Moon Beams and Heart Strings kit, the sentiment from the Ippity What Matters Most kit and the grass is from the Unity Insightful Meadows kit. Yum, love these stamps!

Thanks for popping by and viewing my playing!

Kim
