July Freebies from Rick st. Dennis

Hello Bloggy friends! I am excited to share two new projects with you featuring Rick St. Dennis images. The best part? YOU can get these images for free when you visit the Sparkle and Glitter Blog and the Airless Chambers Blog.

This is the Summer Faerie, and I love her. she is just so cute!!! I love fairies in general, but this one is fantastic! I loved coloring her, and as soon as I saw her, I knew how I wanted her to look.

I was so anal about how I wanted her colored, I had to call my mom who works at one of the craft store chains to pick up the Yellows" set from Spectrum Noir, as I HAD to have them to finish her off! She is colored completely with my Spectrum Noirs. And yeah, even though there is not a lot of yellow on her, It was just what I needed to be happy with the finished image.

Now on to my card for Airless Chambers. It features another one of my favorite things....a dragon!

This is the Grumpy Dragon. Again, I used my Spectrum Noirs to color him in. I think perhaps he may have just woken up.....that could be the cause of the grumpiness!

I used a Texture Plate from Fiskars to create the scaly paper. I used a gold rubby paint on top to make it metallic.

So...are you excited to get these images for yourself? When you do, be sure to enter our contest as well. You could win even more images! So please visit the Airless Chambers Blog as well as Sparkle and Glitter. And don't forget to pop over Rick's blog to say hello as well! 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


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
