Just wanted to show you a little something I found in the dollar store. I love walking up and down the aisles in there… the craft section.. the stationery section.. office supplies.. I always find something to play with!
This week I found these amazing wood veneer stickers! They came in different shapes.. I opted for the classic round and oval shapes.
I found them in our local dollar store chain called DOLLARAMA.
arent they cute?
So I says to myself.. self? wouldn’t these be AMAZING to stamp on? Kinda like textured Kraft paper (I LOVE coloring on Kraft)
So I decided to take my black archival ink.. you can use Staz On too I’m sure.. and stamped SLICK CHICK 🙂
is he not deelish? and that tuft of hair he slicked back? LOVE.
I then took out my Prismacolor pencils and decided to colour him in.. it was really fun.. nice and smooth. and love to see the pop of colour!
I then decided to use my mineral spirits.. some graphite and more pencils to just experiment and play. Did this come out perfect? nope.. because I was playing! And I had so much fun playing! I realized I really do love colouring on this veneer and THAT was what the experiment was about.. it’s the JOURNEY sistahs.. DA JOURNEY! I an going to stick him in my journal because it’s always nice to receive flowers isn’t it? LOL.
I will continue to play with my veneer shapes.. experiment.. maybe gesso it.. maybe try watercolors.. copics.. let’s see where this takes me!
So what I am saying is… always look around for inspiration and PLAY! Take risks.. wonder.. and you will see how much fun that process can be!
Mwah to da sistahs who love da DOLLAH store and taking risks as much as I do 🙂
