Art Journal Simon Wild Inspired Doodle

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Simon Wild Inspired Doodle Simon Says Stamp Challenge

Hello, my talented crafty friends, welcome back for the new challenge. This week, our theme at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is "LET"S DOODLE". I've always loved doodling and for this week's challenge, I was inspired by artist Simon Wild's artworks and doodled on my  art journal using Prismacolor Colerase Colored Pencils and colored using Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolors.

The art journal I've worked on was bound with 24 pages of 9" X 12" watercolor paper. I really enjoy binding my own art journals and sketchbooks with binding tools and wires. On this page, I first applied some random watercolors using Daniel Smith watercolors and a brush. To add more patterns on the background, I sprayed Ranger Dylusions Inks over Tim Holtz Layering Stencil.

I started doodling with Prismacolor Colerase Colored Pencils on the page, coloring the doodled images with watercolors, then drew the outlines and more doodling with black ink pens. The page was randomly stamped with text prints using Prima stamp and Simon Says black ink pad.

I applied some Tim Holtz Rubs-on on the page. To add more texture, I brushed the Ranger crackle paint over the images I drew. 

This is such a fun page I've really enjoyed creating with these vibrant colors and lines. I hope you are inspired to doodle with us and join our challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Mixed Media Tag Fable Inspiration

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Tag Aesops Fable Owl Birds Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz 1
Hi, my lovely blog friends, welcome back for the new challenge. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our theme is "MYTHOLOGY/INSPIRED by a STORY". Our guest designer is Paula - make sure to stop by her blog and check the fabulous project she made for our challenge this week.
I was inspired by Aesop's Fable The Owl and the Birds, and created a mixed media tag using Simon Says Stamp Birch Circle Wafer Die on the background and made the texture using Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint.

I was inspired by Aesop's Fable Owl and the Birds (Click to read the story ), and created a mixed media tag using Simon Says Stamp Birch Circle Wafer Die on the background and made the texture using Tim Holtz Distress Crackle PaintI found the paper owl embellishment and the birds alpha parts that from Tim Holtz product collection in my stash box. 


To start this project, I applied acrylic paints on this size 8 tag and distressed the edges of the tag using Simon Says Stamp black ink pad. I also applied a layer of Ranger Crackle Paint after the acrylic paint was dry.

On a piece of heavy card stock, I die cut the tree using Simon Says Stamp Birch Circle Wafer Die, then applied acrylic paint on it. There was also a layer of the crackle paint applied on the die cut embellishment after the edges were distressed using the black ink pad. I pasted the birch circle and the owl embellishments on the tag using foam tabs.

The letter alpha parts were colored using acrylic paints and attached on the tag using Tombow Mono Glue. I added some sticker sentiments and some Tim Holtz Rubs on. There were some random acrylic paint splatter and drop on the tag as the final touch. 


I really enjoyed The Owl and the Birds story and had fun creating this mixed media tag using the new  Birch Circle Die from Simon Says Stamp. I hope this tag inspired you to create your project and share with us! Happy crafting!
