Altered Art Journal and New Release at TPD Stamps

It's day two of the new stamp release from Two Paper Divas and I've got a pretty altered art journal for you today that features 3 of the new stamp sets; those sweet birds from "Stuck on You", Doodle Alphabet and Journal It!1.  I'm super excited that TPD is introducing fun journaling stamps, also perfect for Bible Journaling!  Be sure and visit the TPD site to check out all of the journaling stamps as I'm only featuring one today.

I'll have a full supply list at the end of this post but primarily I'm including a few key "ingredients" in making this art journal; DecoArt Multi-Surface Satin Paint, 28 Lilac Lane Embellishment Kit, DCWV papers, Bo Bunny shimmer spray.

First, I painted my journal in 2 layers of white paint.  When dry, I added my DCWV tissue paper, covering both sides with Mod Podge and sped up the drying process with my heat embossing tool.  Next, I used my Tim Holtz Crackle stencil and painted another layer of white over my stencil.  Cover with Mod Podge and dry.

To make the gold, shimmery birds, I took my Bo Bunny shimmer spray and added a few droplets on my craft mat, spritzed with a little water and stamped my birds into the mix, then stamped onto my journal.  Blot with paper towel as needed.  Leaves a gorgeous shine!

My sentiments were stamped with Colorbox archival ink and I touched up my birds and the word, "Joy" with my mix of white and neon blue paint.  I hot glued all my embellishments, including the ribbon, and embellishments from 28 Lilac Lane which included those buttons and sequins.  I carefully sealed my birds and sentiments with one last swipe of Mod Podge to make them waterproof.

I'm so happy with how this turned out!  I plan on using this as a devotion journal.  I hope this inspires you!  If you've been thinking about creating your own art/devotion journal, it takes a bit of time but it's so worth it.
