Dreamy Giraffe Art Journal

Hi y'all,

I just had this giraffe idea pop in my head.  Since I've started paper crafting sometimes that happens--a cool idea jumps in my head.  Honestly the image in my imagination is so much more spectacular than what I can get on papr, but it's fun to try.

I made a new motherboard.  A motherboard is a mixed paper that is created to make other projects.  It's a super way to have a variety colors and patterns ready to go.  I made mine by swiping on Distress stains, inks, and Tattered Angel Glimmermist sprays.  Drying between layers keeps you from making mud.

Then I stamped my Tiny Tree Ring stamp all over it with VersaMark ink and embossed it with Ranger Platinum embossing powder.  I thought it looked great!

The background was Night paint dry brushed on with some splatters.  I used the Dina Wakely Daisy stencil to add texture with heavy gesso.  I stamped "Dream on" with a stamp from my Moondala stamp set.  My scribble journaling on the giraffe's mane was made with just a white gel pen, and I also added simple highlights with it.  I used a blue scribble stick for shadows.

Here is the project:

And here is a process video:

So our I think our lesson this week is let our crazy, wild imaginations fly free.  Have you made a project straight from your crazy imagination?  Do share!

  1. This design is wicked! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,
    almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that,
    how you presented it. Too cool!
