Creating with Shiva~ New stamp design by Jessica Sporn




Today I'd like to share another journal page-


  My sweet friend and sister artist Jessica Sporn now has her own line of stamps out by RubberMoon.
 When Jessica asked if I would like to demo a few stamps from her new line- I was more than ecstatic-I was over the moon excited and absolutely honored- Why yes of course!! 
Thank you so much Jessica! xo
For those of you not familiar with Jessica, she is a brilliant designer,gifted teacher and talented artist. Jessica designs her own line of  stencils for StencilGirl products also has a line of handmade gifts for Judaica, and now her line of stamps for Rubbermoon!
Please stop by her blog to say hello and have a look at the wonderful products she designs and creates!

On with the show!
The first stamp I used is called Shiva, you can read a bit more about Shiva further in my post.

 Gessoed journal page then covered with vintage papers

 Painted washed colors on page using 
   DecoArt modeling paste with pearlescent Duo Green-gold powder from Jaquard
From here I continued applying and wiping off color till I was please with my results.

 


 Here, I stamped out several Shivas onto tissue paper using different colors to audition which one worked best.

 

 Then I added the stamped Shiva with wax(doubling the image)
using a faux resin technique~thank you Patty Szymkowicz!



Shiva ( Sanskrit: Śiva, meaning "The Auspicious One"), also known as Mahadeva ("Great God"), is a popular Hindu deity. Shiva is regarded as one of the primary forms of God and also the ruler or king of gods. He is the Supreme God within Shaivism, one of the three most influential denominations in contemporary Hinduism. He is one of the five primary forms of God in the Smarta tradition, and "the Destroyer" or "the Transformer among the Trimurti, the Hindu Trinity of the primary aspects of the divine.
At the highest level, Shiva is regarded limitless, transcendent, unchanging and formless.Shiva also has many benevolent and fearsome forms. In benevolent aspects, he is depicted as an omniscient Yogi who lives an ascetic life on Mount Kailash, as well as a householder with wife Parvati and his two children, Ganesha and Kartikeya and in fierce aspects, he is often depicted slaying demons. Shiva is also regarded as the patron god of yoga and arts.

        I also used wax to adhere this quote by Rumi
and then added Lindy's~GeraniumCoral Blush embossing powder to areas of the page.
  Thank you so much for stopping and I hope to see you again soon- 
Namaste"

This is really beautiful!

Darlene Campbell said...

Oh, Shiva, the Yoga God. When I saw Shiva in your title over on Google+ I thought you were referencing a Siva paint stick. (Ha ha to me.)
This is lovely and I'm excited Jessica has new stamps, and I am more excited that you were asked to demonstrate them for us. You are becoming the texture queen. Love the bead work. Cheers-Darlene
