Americana Crafts with DW and Stampendous!

Hello! I have a Dreamweaver and Stampendous! project to share with you today. All week long, the Stampendous! team has been sharing projects with a patriotic theme. So here's my take.

I made a scrapbook page of my cute kidlings! They were making Americana themed crafts at Michaels. I was of course inspired by the adorable Patriotic Painters and thought they worked really well with my photo.

I colored the image with my Tombow watercolor markers. Now...how much Dreamweaver do you see in my layout?

I used the Amsterdam Flourish in 2 spots on my page. I applied the image with my white embossing paste, and then I sprinkled on some beautiful holographic silver glitter on top while it was still wet. But wait! There's more! My title was made with Dreamweaver's Dual Alphabet Dies. As you can see, I used both the positive and negative space for the title. I love that this set is so versatile. My title is a spin on a scrapbooking company that I used to sell in my store. Here are some of the team members that are playing along today.

 Thanks for stopping by! Have an inspiring day!
