Art Journaling with Ranger Products.

Some of you may think it’s silly to do a CSM Spotlight on Ranger Ink, after all ‘everyone’ knows who they are and what they do. While those of us who have been stamping, playing with mixed media or who have worked in the industry for some time, no doubt know who Ranger Ink is, we really do want to introduce these wonderful products to crafters of ALL levels!

First up a little history. Ranger Ink was founded in 1929!!! I did the math…that’s 88 years in the INK industry…that’s a whole lot of homework backing their amazing products! Initially they manufactured commercial inks used in the banking industry. In 1979 they developed the first art stamp pads, and began doing private labels for stamp manufacturers in 1998.

Since then they have grown to successfully market their own quality products that we have come to love! Products such as Distress Inks, Archival Inks, Liquid Pearls and Stickles are crafter household names!

Based out of Tinton Falls, NJ, this award winning company continues to bring quality and innovation to industry products. Their many mixed media products are fun and creative but what I love most…they allow the user, of ALL levels, to enjoy success! The Ranger team are educators of their products via video, product info and travelling designers that are known worldwide!

Like many of us, I have collected a little Ranger stash. I thought I might share a few projects with you to show the versatility of these products. As I mentioned above…creators of all levels can achieve success, I am by no means a  mixed media guru…but I do love to play!

This little tag was super fun and quick to make. The background uses the new Distress Oxide Inks and stencils. I stamped the Dylusions stamp with Archival Ink, coloured with Distress Crayons, cut out and attached it to the Tim Holtz Ideology diecuts.
This quick art journal page was created in my Dina Wakley Media Journal. I used a bit of Media Clear Gesso to the background and scribbled on some colour with the Scribble Sticks…SO FUN! I spritzed my Media stamp with some water, coloured with my Scribble Sticks and started to layer a bit…please remember I am NO mixed media guru…this is simply playful!

My last little share is created in my Dylusions Creative Dyary. I stamped a Dylusions stamp over one of the pre-made backgrounds and painted around it with Black Soot Distress paint. I embellished the image and page with Dylusions paint pens [LOVE these!] and some words stamped with Distress Oxide Ink! “When in doubt..put a bird on it!” 😉
