Stars, Stripes, Sea Life & Dragon Scales

Hello again! It's Wednesday, so that means there's a lot going on i my little corner of Bloggy Land. I've got a new A Step in the Dark project, one for Wicked Wednesday, and of course, since it's the last Wednesday of the month, the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop.

The new A Step in the Dark challenge is sponsored by Smeared Ink, and the challenge is Anything Goes. I used the beautiful Tiamat from the Women of Power set. I had so much fun with her. And not just because she's topless. ;)

I colored Tiamat with my Spectrum Noir markers. My background was made with the Scales stencil from Dreamweaver. The "Praise" is from The Symbology of Angels.

She is so powerful looking.....

Now. For Wicked Wednesday, we are sponsored by Aurora Wings, and the challenge is Mythical Sea Creatures.

This beautiful image was also colored with Spectrum Noir markers, in my 2 favorite colors...teal and purple.

I used 2 different colors of Stickles and Liquid Pearls for added magic and dimension.

This 2nd ATC is of course for the Bombshell Hump Day Hop. My chosen theme this month was Stars and Stripes...completely open to interpretation. I used one of the free digis that newsletter subscribers can score, along with the head from the Pirate Bombshell from Pirate's Life.

I colored the images with colored pencils. So how about doin' some hopping? Be sure to check out the blogs I inked above, but also visit the rest of the Bombshell hoppers...listed below. 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

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "

Changes

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 alisonheikkila.com . 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
