Linnie Blooms and Stampendous Collaoration

Linnie Blooms and Stampendous...what a fantastic combination!  You're going to find oodles of fun projects to really take your mixed media in a new direction.  Of course there are prizes for 3 lucky winners!  Just click on the Stampendous link HERE for details. For my project, I started to create a mini book for my dogs. 


That's my boy with our dog Abigail. They're really good buds. I started off playing with what will be one of the inside pages of the file folder mini album. I don't know why, but I typically leave the covers for last. They tend to be the hardest parts for me. I cropped down my photo and pulled acrylic paints to coordinate with it. I painted some Christmas Green on the canvas first, and let it dry. Meanwhile, I cut out a mat for my picture, and I heat embossed with a couple of the lovely vials in the Blue Frantage Encrusted Jewel Technique 5 Jar Kit. Say that 3 times fast!

Now that my green paint has dried, I grabbed a turquoise paint and my Chevron stencil. I used a stencil brush to apply the paint to the canvas and stencil. I purposely didn't make it perfect. I wanted it to have kind a worn look. To 2 of the corners, I squeezed on some Faber-Castell Texture Gems (it's like a clear gel that makes great texture, but dries clear so it's cool to use it as an adhesive too), and sprinkled on some blue fragments (also from the Blue Kit mentioned above). I glued down my photo, and added a simple "Friends" stamp with more paint. I gave it a shadow with a PITT Pen. 

Here is the page that will go next to my other....creating a 2 page spread. I used similar techniques as I did on the first page, but with a few different products. The stencil I used here was the Spiral Dots and I used Champagne Glass Glitter as an accent and added texture. I added some May Arts ribbon, and I stamped my sentiment on to it.

It's a little tough to read in my photos, but it says, "Friendship isn't a big thing. It's a million little things." You can find it in the Stampendous! shop HERE. Well, that's it for me today! I will be sharing some more of my mini book soon, so I hope you'll come back for a visit soon! Below are all of the folks joining in today. Please e sure to leave everyone some love. A HUGE thank you to Linnie Blooms for doing this fun collaboration with us! I'm having a blast making these pages. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I love this file folder canvas. It is so versatile.
The background on the page is so pretty. All the dots are pretty.
The picture is cute and the little tag is crumpled and gives depth.
