Water Goddess and an Amazing Announcement!

So let’s start with the announcement, shall we??? I’m a Bombshell!!! No, not just in my husband’s eyes… I’m no longer Ms. July! I’m a full Design Team Member for Bombshell Stamps!!!!! I cannot even begin to tell you how thrilled and honored I am to be a part of such a magnificent team! I was really hoping that, in honor of my new status, I would be able to show off a new layout featuring one of the fabulous stamps, but, alas, my printer is acting wonky and I cannot print my photos properly. So, it’ll have to wait. But in the meantime, I have a card I made for one of the other fabulous Design Teams that I’m on…Smeared & Smudged!

Water-Goddess-1This is obviously the Water Goddess from Smeared Ink, and I just love her. She’s so serene and lovely. Her face is so peaceful. More like a lazy river than a choppy ocean. I was inspired by this month’s S&S Sketch challenge. Here’s the sketch:

It’s a loose translation, but I think it works for the challenge!

Water-Goddess-2

I painted in my Goddess using Twinkle H20’s. And she is just soooo shimmery! I love the effect! It really looks like faceted water on a sunny day in the Mediterranean.

Water-Goddess-3If you click on any of the pictures, you’ll get to see them bigger. Look at that shine! I just love painting with those Twinkles. I really need to invest in some more colors!

Water-Goddess-4I added some smudges of Waterfall Stickles to the bottom of the card, just for a little more oomph. But, I didn’t want to do too much, as it would take away for this lovely Goddess.

So, why not play along with this sketch challenge? You have all month long to play, and there is a fantastic Graphic 45 prize up for grabs!!! So come on over to Smeared & Smudged and learn more!

Congrats to you. On a side note, on my blog you asked how I keep track of all the challenges I enter...well, I have a word document with all the challenge blogs that I have frequented, listed by day, and then type in what the current challenge is. It doesn't take too long to update and it keeps me on track.

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

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 "

Changes

Greetings! I don't have a project to share with you today, but rather, an announcement. I have decided to completely revamp my blog, and move it to a new site. I've been blogging at 21st Century Pillow Book for over 10 years now, and it's been wonderful. But the "Pillow Book" aspect got lost somewhere along the way. If you don't know what that is, read my description in the blog header, or do a quick search. They are really very cool. Anyway, I thought it was due time for me to work on a new blog, more of a brand, etc. So, I invite you to now join me over at alisonheikkila.com . I've still got some polishing up to do, and a whole lot of learning, as WordPress is completely different from Blogger, but I am really excited for this new site. I've wanted to do this for a long time, and I am happy to finally be getting it done. Bear with me as I figure out the best way to make it all look and flow. I thankfully have some help with that. But I think you
