TTIC #27 Jasper Hale

So, I was pretty excited to do last week's Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge. I instantly had some cool ideas in my head that I thought would be different from all the rest. I'll get into that in a minute... But, I needed my copy of Breaking Dawn in order to have a quote/get my facts straight. My sis had my copy though... which you probably wouldn't think would be a big deal since she lives right next door!!! I also need to reference Eclipse, which I do have in my possesion. Unfortunately, she never gave me the copy, and now it's Tuesday again, and there's a new challenge. I still would like to try and do it, but since the week's up, I'll just blog a little about it and if I have time (and she brings me my book), I'll make the project I had in mind. Fingers crossed that I get the time!!!

SPOILER ALERT!!! So, in Breaking Dawn, you finally hear about Jasper's story when he first became a vampire, and his "life" before the Cullens. It's told in Eclipse, but after Bella becomes a vampire, she really "sees" him; which I found to be quite interesting. Bella sees his neck and jaw and she realizes the hundreds of bite marks all over it are just like the mark that James gave her in Twilight. She couldn't see these marks with her human eyes. Jasper suddenly seemed dangerous to her. This made me think of this awesome cardstock that I have from Prism. It's called Jade Spring. It's a pearlized white (yeah, I know they sparkle) that has this fabulous, brushy, wispy pattern to it. If I don't get to make my project, I'll post a pic of the paper so you get the idea. Anyway, this paper reminded me of what Jasper's skin would look like. I figured that most of the projects would be about Jasper's ability to change the emotions of people around him... which is all well and good, but I wanted to get into the darker side of Jasper. The military man who was tortured both emotionally and physically. So I was going to make it kind of a "dark" project. Ahhhh, and as I am typing this, Pam brought me my book. Faboo! But, I think I'll start the new TTIC project first.

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
