Hi Everyone! It’s Lisa Novogrodski here and I am thrilled to be guest designing this month for
Jamie Dougherty’s Bloom Girl Team!
I wanted to do something a little “out of the box” with the Bloom Girl stamps. If you are familiar with my work then you know I like to use products in a different way then they were intended. Nothing is safe. If I can cut it up, rearrange it and put it back together again that is what I’ll do! Soooo… today I want to show you that you are only limited by your imagination when it comes to these fabulous stamps. While you can stamp and color them and use them on your project you can also stamp and rearrange them into whatever path your imaginations takes you down.
“See The Beautiful Foolishness of Things and Linger”
I’ve used the Bloom Art Book to create my project. I love that the pages already have some color and pattern to them. No “blank page fear” if you happen to suffer from that.
I stamped the Bloom Girl Joy on white cardstock and cut the flowers from her hair…and well… I cut off her hair! The stamped flowers were colored with Caran d’ache water soluble crayons which I love. I also stamped with Clear Stamps and the flower stamp that came with the pack of Flair Buttons. I splattered the background with Bloom Mists and added some art doll parts to the girls!
On the opposing page I used Bloom Girl Paige. Again I cut her hair off and stamped her on white cardstock. I also stamped her again several times on pattern paper. I cut the flowers out and used a mix of those cut from pattern paper and those cut from white cardstock. I mixed them into background scene as well as forming a crown of flowers for her head. I used Caran d’ache to color her face and the white stamped florals.
I set my Bloom Girls in a scene adding some more art doll parts and background interest to give my pages a fun quirky look! Give it a try!
