Putting on Socks: Week 4 with Dreamweaver Stencils

Hello friends! I am sad to say, that this is my last post as a Guest Designer for Dreamweaver Stencils. I have had such a wonderful time posting with this extremely talented Design Team. It has been a real pleasure, and I want to thank the entire team for being so welcoming. And an extra special thank you to Lynell and Pam. You ladies are so wonderful. Thank you for having me.

So, if you have been following me throughout the month, you will know that the Dreamweaver challenge for the month is Rain/Showers/Drizzles/Mists, etc. My past 3 projects featured rain, but this time I wanted to go more along the line of "mists." I went to town with Memory Mists from Dreamweaver. And I got to make a layout! Yay!!!

Look at how teeny my Phoenix is! This photo was taken in my old scrapbooking store. Phoenix was about a year old here. Gosh, that seems like forever ago! He's 6 now, by the way. So here's what I did. I took the Fleur de Lis and the Damask stencil and put them on a crafting mat and sprayed the heck out of them with Diet Cola Memory Mist. Then I flipped them onto my cardstock and lightly pressed the stencil down. With the Houndstooth stencil, I sprayed directly onto my cardstock- but of course I flipped the stencil over on to another piece of stock so that I didn't waste any mist.

I then sprayed my main piece of cardstock with Stormy Weather Memory Mist and let it dry. Now, take a look at my letters. See how they sparkle? I sprayed Iridescent Memory Mist all over a sheet of black cardstock and then used my Slice machine to cut out my title. I also used some White Embossing Paste  with the Celtic Hexagon stencil in random spots on my page. The color is a little washed out in this photo, but I wanted you to be able to see the glimmer.


Again, I had a fantastic time not only making this page, but spending time with the Dreamweaver gals. Thank you again to everyone. It was a pleasure. Below is the full list of ladies that have projects to share with you.  Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Cute story and great layout, Alison! Love how you created your own embellishments for the page with DW products! Thanks for being our GD this month!
Wow! This was a masterpiece...love how you did the ink transfer by hand with the background stencils as well! And the iridescent spray on the letters is stunning. Thanks for the inspiration Alison.
