Pink Ninjas Prompt #37: What’s Your Stilo?

Hello! Sooooo…I’m kinda nervous, kinda excited… Many of you know by now how nervous I get with computers and new projects on the computer. I need details people, details! So when The Pink Ninjas (who I am now obsessed with…thanks Sarabeth!) said that we followers can become authors on their Art Walk blog, I hopped right on board, albeit I was shakin’ in me boots.

Their latest challenge was “What’s Your Stilo?” Meaning, what’s your style. Oh, and we were supposed to use some crepe paper but for some ridiculous reason or another, I have none! Oh well… Anyway, this is the layout I made. And, while I like to think I have several styles, there are some specific things I tend to do on most of my pages.


Here’s Baby Rhi last year, shortly after she learned how to sit on her own. So this layout shows a lot of the elements I gravitate towards. Lots of color, different patterns and textures, inking, stamping on pages, and using different fonts.


I stamped the swirls 2x, in 2 different blues. The stamp is from Autumn Leaves (Rhonna Farrer) one of my fave sets of stamps eva!!! I also added some teeny rhinestones to a couple of spots on the swirls. Click on the pic to see it bigger!


I love to use a whole mess of fonts at once. Then I don’t hafta worry about running out of an “e.” I just use/make whatever I need from any set I have on hand. I think it adds a lot of intrest to a page too.

Know what I didn’t do on this page? Tearing. One of the things that I always seem to do. Weird. I did distress the edge of the pink square though. See how it’s a little rough around the edges?

So there you have it. I hope the fabulous Pink Ninjas like my post. I hope they let me post again! I am really excited about doing it because I so need to scrap. Yeah, I’m totally far behind, but I want to scrap. I have so many ideas for the multitude of photos I have. Time to get it done (ok…not done, really… but at least a little more complete then what it is now!). Hope you enjoyed! Have an inspiring day!

Beautiful daughter and beautiful layout! I love the mismatched fonts...I'll have to give that a try as I'm always running out of my letters at a critical time.

Oh my word!! Look at those cheeks! I just want to squeeze them. Z never had pudgy cheeks - he's always looked a little older than all the other babies.
Great page! I love it!

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
