Art Journal Feature with Darkroom Door


Hi everyone and happy Saturday! It’s Shari here with a special art journal feature. Darkroom Door has created two stamp sets exclusively for Simon Says Stamp’s STAMPtember® event!

Love these stamps, so many possibilities! The one on the left is Warm Wishes and on the right is Enjoy The Journey. I’ve used a few stamps from each set for my art journal page today. I started with the flowers by clear embossing them on my background to create a resist.

I used some of the new Prima Arts Basic mediums to create some layers, and Dylusions sprays as paint. Once happy with my background, I stamped more of the Darkroom Door images with black ink over the top of all my treatments.

My Dylusins inks gave me a happy surprise, my brown turned out kind of purple when applied over the Crackle Paste. Delicious!!!

I shot a video of my process and this time I did it “live” since I used a lot of new product that needed some explanation. I’ve split it up in to two parts, Enjoy!

And on to Part 2.

I hope you like the voice format, if so, I’ll do more like this in the future.  Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. Thank you Shari for all the great close-ups, it was fun to watch you play with all the wonderful new products, I can’t wait to see the finished “book”, those pages look amazing :)

  2. I really liked hearing you talk and explain things more in these videos. To be perfectly honest, my mind wanders quite a bit when it’s just music. I liked hearing about the products you were using and your thought process.

  3. Great stamp sets and amazing art journal page! I LOVE the background with the coloring, the stamping and the texture combined so harmonious! Dear Shari you’re so inspiring!

  4. Love, love this journal page and the introduction to the new Darkroom Door products. I would also love a tutorial on how you removed your “mistake” with alcohol. Thanks!

  5. Fabulous art journal page. I’m starting an art journal and you give so much inspiration. Looking forward to your next page.

  6. I adore this stamp set and the paper. The colors you chose are perfect and the glass glitter and mica are perfect accents. Beautiful! Thank you for explaining clear gesso. What a great product.
