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!

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 "
