Hey guys! I am so excited to be a part of this design team, and I hope I am able to share some inspiration!

Today I wanted to make some stamped elements to use in my various projects. I like to keep some of these on hand so that I can just grab them when inspiration strikes and I don’t have to stop. I used the DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics in a way similar to watercolor paints. I gessoed my paper and I thinned the paint down with some water, and just splashed around and played, letting the colors mix however they wanted. 

I then decided to create a journal page inspired by these stamped images. 

I really hope you enjoy the process, and I’m excited to share more with you!
