The A – Z of Artful Journaling: Digital Stamps

I’m new to digital stamps; in fact, this is the first one I’ve ever owned, but I can already tell that I’m going to enjoy incorporating them into my journal. (See Sad Cat Makes Me Happy for more about this particular stamp.)

Below are all the ways I’ve used it so far:

 

 

I printed this one on mixed media paper, painted him using watercolour, then fussy cut him out and glued him onto the page. I really like this look, although I might give him a wall to sit on.

 

 

This next one is also printed on mixed media paper, but this time I coloured it in using Akashiya Fude Brush Pens. For now, I’m going to use it as a bookmark, but eventually, I’ll journal on it and turn it into a tip-in.

 

 

I printed this one on sketchbook paper and watercoloured it, but instead of fussy-cutting it out, I used my paper trimmer to make a 3 x 4 inch journal card and stuck it into my journal with a washi tape hinge, so I can flap it over and write on the back. For a closer look, click on the image.

 

I admit this next one is a bit weird: I printed kitty on a piece of acetate and stuck it in with a washi tape hinge down one side, then I used highlighter tape to create the bright yellow area in the middle. I think it actually looks quite cool because the tape is transulcent and you can see the stamp through it. Lastly, I stamped the date using StazOn ink.

And finally, I printed the image directly onto a sheet of 52gsm Tomoe River Paper, but it came out a bit smudged and wrinkled as my printer struggles with such thin paper. I’ll have to rustle up some 68gsm and give that a go.

So, those are all the ways I’ve used digital stamps in my artful journaling so far. How about you? What ways have you used digital stamps in your journaling?

Thanks for reading! See you soon.
