June Bombshell Stamps Muse Monday: Mermaid Anchor

Greetings! It's the first Monday of the month, so that means it's time for me to share the newest Muse Monday for Bombshell Stamps with you. Are you familiar with Muse Monday? Each month, I choose a set of Bombshell Stamps that I want the fabulous Design Team to work with. Each Monday, at least 2 team members will share projects with you using that featured set. Plus, that set will be on sale for the entire month! For June, I wanted to work with Mermaid Anchor. It's a fairly new set for me in my collection, but since I have gotten it...I have used it quite a number of times. I am really enjoying working with it.

I made a mini page (6x6 layout). I am quickly falling in love with making these babies. I colored my images with my Green, Pale Hues and Cool Gray sets from Spectrum Noir.

I was in a green mood today.....wasn't planning on doing a monochromatic page...but it worked out that way. Seems like I am working with unusual colors (or the lack there of) lately.

I used some of the icons and one of the dolphins on my background paper. I clear embossed them for a watermarked effect. I hope you enjoyed my page! Please be sure to visit the Bombshell Blog every Monday for more rad projects featuring Mermaid Anchor. And don't forget to buy your own set this month, while it's on sale! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Gorgeous page, Alison! I am loving that color! I really dig that shade of green. That little dolphin is the perfect touch, too! 6X6 does seem so much more manageable. Thanks for the inspiration.

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


Greetings! I don't have a project to share with you today, but rather, an announcement. I have decided to completely revamp my blog, and move it to a new site. I've been blogging at 21st Century Pillow Book for over 10 years now, and it's been wonderful. But the "Pillow Book" aspect got lost somewhere along the way. If you don't know what that is, read my description in the blog header, or do a quick search. They are really very cool. Anyway, I thought it was due time for me to work on a new blog, more of a brand, etc. So, I invite you to now join me over at . I've still got some polishing up to do, and a whole lot of learning, as WordPress is completely different from Blogger, but I am really excited for this new site. I've wanted to do this for a long time, and I am happy to finally be getting it done. Bear with me as I figure out the best way to make it all look and flow. I thankfully have some help with that. But I think you
