Hello my dear crafty friends ! Irit is here and I welcome  you to my very first post as a Design team member of Honey Bee stamps.
As most of you most probably know I am more a Mixed Media artist than a card maker, so I decided to show you how Honey Bee Stamps can be used for Mixed Media projects. I will craft some cards too, but with a touch of Mixed Media mostly in the future.
So today  I am going to shoe you the art journal single page made with just a few products.

All you need to make the similar page is a piece of good thick white cardstock from any company, one single Tando Creative stencil, DecoArt texture paste and ColorArte Silk Acrylics paints and …. Yes, our gorgeous Honey Bee  stamps:
Happy Everything set and Color My Word set.
This is not a tutorial post, but I  will tell you  briefly how I made this piece.
First I used the stencil with texture paste and made all textured images over the white cardstock.
Then, when the paste was dry, I added paints and mist to get those summery green, blue and yellow colors over the whole stencilled images.
I kept a few areas without texture to stamp later over them.
Let’s say that the Silk Acrylics are fantastic as paints, but terrible as the stamping background. The gel medium inside them makes the good stamping almost impossible. So this was a time to use my Misti maybe for the very first time and to stamp the Happy Moments and Happy Everything  from Happy Everything set over and over with black permanent ink.

But finally the stamping was good for the Mixed Media page. Not very crispy, but sufficient.
I added stamped flowers using Color My Word set  on the ” white” areas that were green as you can see…
To make the flower pop I added white acrylic around and over the images and added some of the paint over the textured images too.

As you can see this is a real art page: flat, made with a lot of mediums and no ” add- ons” at all.
And it’s a great example for you to see how Honey Bee stamps can be used on Mixed Media projects.
Just grab some of them and make your own art journals with your own mix of colors, textures and sentiments.
Thanks for being here with me and you are welcome to my Instagram account @iritshalom2000!
I will post more of my Honey Bee projects there in the future! Please follow me there if you like or just pop to say hello.
