Oddball January 2018 Planner Page

Time for another Inspiration Post for you using Oddball Stamps.

Image may contain: 1 person

I showed you a couple of days ago the cover of my 2018 Planner, so here is my January page all done.

I am doing this planner in A5 size (yep, forgot to mention that last post!), but you could easily make it an A4 if you chose.


A close up


So you can see I have room to add more later if I want or can leave as is as I'm totally happy with how it is at the moment.


All images were coloured with Copic Markers.
I used some Gesso underneath where Heidi is to defuse the notes lines and used some Gelto's to create a smoky background.
I dabbed the sentiment bubble with Distress Ink to give a grungy look....
The whole background part didn't work out as I had thought it might, but I'm ok with that!
You all know the good thing about art is that there really is no wrong, so jump on in like me and give it a go!

Ok on to February now I guess!

I added some more stencilling and also stamps using Jet Black Mementos ink to create some depth.
Top left and bottom right I have added some 3D Texture Paste (transparent) over another stencil and then used my distress ink to rub over the top - again to give it some character.
LOL, cause you know Harley doesn't have enough Character! 
Harley is coloured with Copic markers and the sentiment is another of my Jaded Blossom stamps.

Memento Jet Black ink and various stamps used to add a bit of interest and some hand doodling with black gel pen......LOL, yes, that does need some working on.
