Enjoy the Little Things Project

There is nothing better than starting the New Year with encouragement and inspiration — which is exactly what Dyan Reaveley’s Clearly Quotes stamps offer. After reading some of the positive affirmations featured on these stamps, I knew that I had to use them in my first project of the New Year.

Enjoy the Little Things Project Instructions:

  1. Randomly collage paper onto your substrate using gel medium.
     
  2. Apply red, turquoise, and white acrylic paint over the collaged paper using your fingers. The messier the better! Let the paint dry, and then add a layer of gel medium.
     
  3. Next, dry brush gesso onto some old book text, and let dry. When it’s dry, adhere it to the background.
     
  4. Stamp an image of a ruler down one side, and add a stitched rub-on across the bottom to add some depth and interest.
     
  5. Stamp a scribbly bird onto your old book text.
     
  6. Spray scraps of old book text with red spray ink, and let them dry. Once dry, adhere them over the gessoed book text for a layered look.
     
  7. Select your favorite quote from Dyan Reaveley’s Clearly Quotes Set, and stamp it onto some scrap paper. Next, cut it out, and adhere it to the background.
     
  8. Finally, add a bit of sparkle to the project by wrapping with metallic twine.
