Sin City Stamps - Design Team Blog Post - Documented Life Challenge


HI All..   Sin City Stamp Design Team Member
Lisa Mita hère…   You can find my personal blog here.

So our challenge for March was to use ComposiMold

This was pretty cool stuff to use…  I really avoided it all month it was super scary.

But this month I happen to start working on a new project for me.   Documented Life Challenge.

I worked on putting my journal together - and I used the ComposiMold within parts of the Journal.

On the cover of the Art Journal I actually used it as a texture… I heated up the container


I used a dropper and put some drops on the journal cover to make the poppies jump out


See below how I heat it up and then added the red paint to it while it was still warm. 
It jumps off the page.


I also used from Sin City Stamps

Bird DieCut from the Nesting Bird Trio Die Cuts

below will have a supply list.

Here's some additional photos from my journal.

Another thing I did with the ComposiMold.   Didn't take a photo of this process….
I used a Prima Wood Piece with a bird on a stick with what I see poppy flowers..
I sprayed the wood with mold release -
Put a double side sticky tape piece and stuck it to the bottom of a small bowl.
I then poured the mixed into the bowl…   I did it about 1 1/2 " deep..
This gave me 2 things…
After it dried - on the bottom - I was able to pull out the Wood Die and have my mold so I can put the
Paper Clay (White).

Now on the other side it was a perfect mini square - about 5x7…  Since this is close to my art journal I wanted my own gelli plate this size.   Here's my issue I wanted to take a photo of this because I left to go to Atlantic City with my daughter - and didn't get the photo before I left…


You can see able how I left a lot of the white clay showing.  I painted the bird with Black Gesso
And painted the flowers the same red & green I was doing on the poppy's on the branch.

The detail was great…  and now I have the mold to do many more.

Going to keep this piece just how it is… I have a mini jelly plate - and a bird mold.

Below are some photos from the Journal Book...


Just did some drawing - and with market did highlights - used washi tape and some numbers stickers.


Pulled in some rub ons as well… and added the calendar on the left with washi tape.



Here's one that I added a fold out page.  



The above and below is from this week…  The Sunday ends with our AC trip..  Shows my notes from work and my watercolor.   The base of the page on the right above the base of the page is from the jelly page 5x7….  i then doodle on top of that.



Here's the above same page…   but the piece is folded.   And I just love the background from the Jelly Plate…   Mixed 3 different yellow and Greens… came out great.





Heres another one above that I used the 5x7 jelly plate I made and then had base colors going… and then did stamping above it once it was Dry…




Side view of the art journal - I added the months with tabs.



So i took something I was totally fearful of trying… and pulled it into my Documented Life Journal.  So far very excited and happy…

I hope you enjoyed..

Once I get home and can take the photos I miss and add them into the mix above so You can see my jelly plate.  Tried to pull this together when I was feeling creatively blocked - and scared to used something new at the same time was not fun - while packing for our mini-vaca trip with my 15 year old daughter.

Thank you for coming and reading..

Hope you join in on Documented Life...
