Art Journal Prompt & Technique #32

Hello!  I’m back today to show you the art journal page I made for my new prompt and technique posts over in the Art Journal Every Day group in the Smeared and Smudged forum.

Technique – India Ink Crazy Lines

Prompt – Black, White, and One Other Colour

Here’s my page, using a butterfly stamp from the Specimen Jar set from the Smeared Ink Rubber Club.  You can also find this stamp in digi form.


Thanks for looking!

Smudgefest Day 7!

Hello!  So, I missed Day 6, unfortunately.  Some unforeseen circumstances came up and I didn’t end up having time to make something for yesterday.  Ah well.  But I decided to join in last minute for this final day of Smudgefest.Winking smile

Smudgefest Day 7 – Synonymous Sunday

The challenge today is to make a project using the image provided by Smeared Ink.

Here is my art journal page…



Thanks for looking!  I’ll be back sometime tomorrow with a new technique and prompt post over on the Smeared and Smudged forum.

Smudgefest Day 5!

Hi there!  I’m back for another day.

Smudgefest Day 5 – Flight of Fancy

The challenge today is to create a project that features wings.

I chose to use one of my favorite sets for this.  The stamps are from the Heart Wings set from Smeared Ink’s Rubber Club.

I made a simple chunky page.


I’m getting my project done early today because I’m off to Stampaway in a little bit!

Thanks for looking!

Smudgefest Day 4!


Smudgefest Day 4 – Toil and Trouble

For today’s challenge you have to pick at least three of the listed items and use them on your project.

I chose to use Stencil, Black, Cardboard, and Metal.

My stamp is from Smeared Ink’s Rubber Club.




I used a recycled piece of corrugated cardboard to make an art journal page.  I used a branch stencil for the background, but my ink was clogged, so it didn’t work perfectly.

Thanks for looking!

Smudgefest Day 3!

Hello!  I’m back for day 3!

Smudgefest Day 3 – Wicked Wednesday

Today’s challenge is a photo challenge.  You must make a project that is inspired by the photo that is posted on the blog.

I was inspired by the patterns and colors of the peacock’s feathers.

My image is Mermaid – Carnies from Smeared Ink.  It’s hard to tell in the photos, but all of the paints I used are shimmery.



Thanks for looking!

Smudgefest Day 2!

Hello!  I’m back again with another project for Smudgefest!

Smudgefest Day 2 – Terrifying Tuesday

For today’s challenge you have to use your favorite scary image on a project.  There are many creepy images that I like, so I decided to use two images on my ATC.  Both images are by Rick St. Dennis from Smeared Ink’s Rubber Club.


Thanks for looking!  Hopefully I’ll have another project for tomorrow!

Smudgefest Day 1!

Hello!  Today kicks off the annual event of Smudgefest!  Yay!  This is the yearly week-long event from Smeared Ink, where you have the chance to play along with a new challenge each day.  It’s loads of fun!(And there are great prizes to be had, too!)

The challenge for Smudgefest Day 1 is Mixed Media Monday.  You must use three different types of coloring mediums on your project.

I have used Copic markers, Distress Ink, and watercolor crayons on my journal page.  My stamp is from Smeared Ink, from the Candy is Dandy set.


Thanks for looking!  Hopefully you’ll see something from me again tomorrow!
