Be Outrageous with ArtStacks

Welcome back!

I've had a blast playing with white pen on black paper and adding pops of colour with ArtStacks images. 

I thought this little boy was so expressive and fitted my 'outrageous' theme perfectly. My boy, balloons, sunflower and mushroom are all from the All Dressed Up pack at ArtStacks

Everything else on the page is just white pen on black watercolour paper. I'm often disappointed in white pens but my Posca pen worked like a charm!

I hope you love these versatile images as much as I do!

Happy arting.

Magical at More Than Words

The Mini Challenge at More Than Words this month is to use the word 'Magical' on your card, tag, ATC or postcard.

I love this image - it's from the new "All Dressed Up' pack from ArtStacks. I think it shows the magical relationship between the two people. 

Will you join in the challenge? You can find it here.

Happy arting!

Getting Strangely Inky

Hi there!

The Main Challenge at More Than Words this month is to be inspired by the word 'Strange' and to use ink on your project.

I'm travelling with limited supplies atm and only had two ink pads with me. I have no stencils or anything to use with them so I simply gently rubbed the blue ink pad directly onto the background.

Luckily I had a few ArtStacks images with me so I put this together with those.

I also had the October challenge at Art Journal Journey in mind when I made this. The talented Elle from Empire of the Cat is hosting it and I was inspired by her description of fables that explains that they can feature mythical creatures and they always have a moral behind them. My mythical man is kind of kooky but he still tells a story.

You can find the Art Journal Journey challenge here.

I also hope you can join in the fun at More Than Words this month! You can find the challenge here.

Happy journaling!
