Movie Magic Monthly #1: Alice in Wonderland

Welcome, welcome! Today I am sharing the very first challenge for the brand new challenge blog, Movie Magic Monthly. Every month on the 10th, we will have a new movie that we want YOU to create a project for. Make anything you want! A card, a scrapbook page, jewelry, altered art, journal pages, anything, as long as it has something to do with that month's movie. You will have an entire month to play along with us, so you've got plenty of time! What's our first Movie Magic Monthly Challenge??? Alice in Wonderland! I created an art journal page.

My Alice is from Dilly Beans, and those fabulous mushrooms are from Strange Skin. I colored both images with watercolor markers and alcohol markers.

I popped Alice up with foam dots. I thought these two images went so well together, don't you? I used watercolor paints for my background. I also sprayed the soil with a Tsukineko spray. I like how it came out.

My husband found me the perfect quote.
Daisy: "What kind of garden do you come from?"
Alice: "Oh, I don't come from any garden."
Daisy: "Do you suppose she's a wildflower?"
On a side note, Strange Skin has an entire fabulous collection of Wonderland images. You can check out all of their digis HERE. If you are interested in purchasing any of these images, please feel free to email my sister Pam (she's one of the owners/designers of Strange Skin) at pamelajbowman@hotmail.com.
So....would you like to play along? I'm sure you do! Just head on over to the Movie Magic Monthly Blog to not only check out the rules, but to see what the rest of the awesome Design Team has created. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
