Week 2 with Dreamweaver Stencils

Hello! I am excited to share my second project as a Guest Designer with Dreamweaver Stencils. The challenge for the month is Clouds, Showers, and Mists. I made a card that's very different from the art journal page I made last week. But I used the same Rain stencil. I love showing how different the same stencil can look depending on what you pair it with. To see last week's post, please click HERE.

I colored the rain with my Crayola airbrush, as I did last week. But this time, I used a cream colored cardstock, to keep it cheery and light. Then, I used White Embossing Paste with my Plum Blossom stencil right on top of the rain drops. After the paste dried,  I applied some Metallic F/X in Pixie Blush, and a bit of Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

I love that you can see some hints of the rain coming through the flowers. See how sparkly the Pixie Blush is? Love this stuff!

I cut out a few ovals and layered them, added some ribbon, a chipboard sentiment, and some pretty Anna Griffin vellum to my background. I think it's a happy, Springy card, which again...is much different from the goth art journal page from last week. I hope you like it! Would you like to see more? Below is a blog list of the gals on the Dreamweaver DT...please drop by and leave them some love. And if you want even more (who can get enough of Dreamweaver?!), then head on over to Facebook and "Like" their page! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Wonderful card Alison. I, too, love how background color comes through the white paste to just give a hint of the other color. Thanks for joining our team this month!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
