Blooming Field New Release by AALL & Create

Hello Friends

I am back this week with a Guest Designer piece for AALL & Create, using Olga Heldwein's newly released (and gorgeous) stamp set #229 - Blooming Field.
I created a simple notebook/journal.  I had intended to create a small hard back journal but I could not bring myself to cut into the image, I wanted to show the whole stamp.
Here is the stamp set - isn't it beautiful, along with the stencil I used lightly in the background, #64 by Autour de Mwa.
The image was stamped onto mixed media card, with Black Versafine Clair ink.
I coloured the image with Derwent Inktense Watercolour pencils.  Olga provides the shading in her stamps so the images are so easy to colour!
I masked off the image and used Distress Oxide Ink in Broken China to colour in my background area.  Once coloured I applied the stencil and coloured again using the same Oxide ink and it left a 'ghosted' image in the background.  I applied the image to my 6" x 8.1/4" notebook, trimmed around the edges and then added more Oxide ink to the edges.

To finish off I added an elastic closure in a toning blue.  This notebook/journal will sit on my desk to jot ideas and techniques down.

You can find a list of worldwide stockists of AALL & Create stamps and stencils  HERE.

Thanks so much for your visit, it is always appreciated!

Hugs, Anne xxx


  1. Oh Anne isn't this design magnificent, a new one to me and I agree it appears to have all the detail and shade given to help us all. You've brought both image and book together seamlessly.
    Now another on my ever growing wish list. A beautiful notebook that I too would have close to hand to jot down idea's. I'm sure those idea's will be flooding in with this little piece of inspiration Anne.
