I found a new (to me) art journal prompt group called Embrace Your Art 2016: Journal About Me. There are weekly prompts and they are all to make a journal about yourself. So I am going to try to participate in as many as I can. She is making a round journal so I thought I would try that too. The first prompt of this year is to use your name.
The Monday challenge at Simon Says Stamp is to use something NEW (and try to use Tim Holtz products). It just so happens I shopped their great after Christmas sale and just received my box of goods. Which included Tim's Fossilized Amber distress ink!
Well, since my name is Amber, I thought this was just meant to be :)
Here is the page I created:
I don't have any cool meanings or history behind my name. I saw someone else in the group use the definition of their name so I decided to go that way too. And the background is supposed to look like a piece of amber.
I used Fossilized Amber, as well as several other yellow inks and gelatos, to create the background. The wheat stamp is from CTMH. Vintage Handwritten (script) and Insightful Meadows (flowers) are from Unity. Some black ink splatters and lots of distress ink blending were also used!
I have an old 4-inch round album laying around so I decided to use that size for this. I'm hoping the small size will make it less intimidating to finish a page every week.
I'm linking up to these challenges:
