Andrea created a page in her Dylusions Small Creative Journal using some of her favorite Tim Holtz stamp sets (Sideshow, Halftone and Rings, and Media Marks 2) for the patterns and collage pieces.

Anna-Karin made an art journal page to celebrate the green shades of spring. The page was done in the Dylusions Square Ledger Journal and the stencil used for the background is Tim Holtz new Labels stencil. The view master reel was die cut with Tim’s Vault Picture Show.

Barbara created a page using lots of Idea-ology elements: Word Plaques Large, Backdrops Volume 5, Palette Ephemera Pack. She added the typewriter stamp that is part of the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Curiosity Shop set. She chose two Distress Crayons to color the Paper Doll: Shabby Shutters and Carckling Campfire.

Cheiron created a page for her mini journal using a background of Distress Watercolor Pencil shavings from her palette. Then she did some stamping with Distress Archival Inks and the Mini Media Marks stamps, some pencil lines and some dots with a white Posca pen. She added a Mini Paper Doll, a stamp from the new Postmarked Sticker Book and a Smalll Talk sticker to finish her page.

Kath created a page in her Dylusions Small Creative Journal using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Abstract Florals and Curiosity Shop, Mini Layering Stencils from Set 59, the Simon Says Abstract Florals dies and Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Archives Collage Paper from the new 2024 collection.

Macarena matched a perfect couple by stamping Tim Holtz The Inspector and Elizabeth Craft Designs Travel From The Past faces. She heat embossed them with Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Powder Fine Detail. For the background she added plaid pattern from Tim Holtz Mr. Rabbit and huge digits from Paint By Number set.

Maura created an art journal spread about her son and grandpup on an adventure. She used Paper Artsy Tracy Scott stamps to add marks, the Simon Says Stamp Crackle Background for interest, and one of her favorite color inks – Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated Citrine ink.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Spray Set Of 12 Ranger on the background, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Sizzix Vault Lovebirds Thinlits Dies and  Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps Curiosity.

Zoey used Distress Mica Stain to add color to her backgroud. She also used Distress Snowfall Texture through the Crossed layering stencilIdeaology embellishment were just perfect to decorate this spread!
