Dilly Beans, RSD, and DICC, Oh My!

Ready for a lot of projects??? I have THREE to share with you today! It's the 1st, so I have a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge. It's Friday, so there's a new Dilly Beans Challenge, and then I have a new Rick St. Dennis project to coincide with Team Glitter's new Challenge!
Here's my DICC project. I used #'s 1, 2, 6, and 10. To see the itinerary, you will need to go to the blog!

I made an art journal page. I like it, but it doesn't feel quite finished yet. I think it may need some more layers. I created my background with some heart stencils and my new Crayola air brush.

This is Amalia and Crinkles. Dilly Beans is sponsoring us this week, so you have the chance at winning some fabulous digis if you play along!
The Dilly Beans Challenge this week is Love Gives Me Wings. I colored in this image using watercolors.

I had some Basic Grey scraps that I thought went really well with my paint job. This little angel is just so sweet, isn't she?

The newest Rick St. Dennis challenge with Team Glitter is Hugs and Hearts. I used the new Valentine Turtle, combined with a digi paper from Bearly Mine Designs, who is our sponsor.

I love Rick's turtles! there are a few so far, with the possibility of there being more in the future. I really enjoyed coloring it.

The colors are truer to life in the first photo. I colored this image with a combination of watercolor markers and alcohol markers.
So now you have 3 great challenges to participate in! I hope that you do! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
