Art Journal Page: Don't Be Shady! (with Video)


Hey there lovelies!

Yes, I'm back with another art journal spread and a start to finish process video (with a tiny bit of stamping and gluing missed off, when I was all discombobulated over whether I was turning my camera on or off).


I've recently taken delivery of the gorgeous and very clever stamps sets, designed and produced by the witty and talented James Burke. Go watch his videos if you haven't caught them already. I promise you, you will fall in love with both him and his style. The moment he gleefully greets you with a "G'day Friends!", you'll be hooked.


Now this page was inspired by a technique he regularly teaches. To stamp the images in a light grey ink and use them as a base to draw over and transform into many different styles and characters. You are limited only in your imagination. And a great way for those under the misapprehension that they cant draw to have a go.



Anyway, I stamped up three of the Unbothered ladies (there are 4 in the set) and gave them a Hammer horror make-over. And I'm sure there are plenty of stamps in my collection (and yours too I would hazard a guess) which can be revisited and altered this way. 


Anyway, watch how my page (See Below) is made and then head over to James' channel to see the master in action :)
