Impossible until it’s done!

Hello everyone!

Today while I was browsing throung Pinterest I came across this beautiful quote! I found it really inspirational and I decided to use the layout of the Altenew Sketch Challenge to create a page for my journal! Hope you like it!

I wanted to keep the page fairly simple so all the attention would be drawn on the sentiment and the flowers. I used Altenew Bamboo Rose to stamp the flowers and I colored everything with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. I printed the sentiment out and stuck it on a black paper. I stamped the word BELIEVE on black cardstock using white ink. (The result wasn’t very crisp so I went over the letters with acrylic paint as well.That didn’t work great either!So I used a white Uni-Posca marker too!). I added a few splatters and inked the edges of my page using distress black ink. Job done!

Supplies used:

  • A5 Sketch Pad
  • Printed sentiment  from:
  • Altenew – Bamboo Rose stamp set
  • Simon Says Stamp – Secret garden stamp set
  • Black paper
  • Ranger – Archival Ink Jet Black
  • Distress Ink Pads: Black soot
