Add GLITTER with ADfD!

Hello! It's time for a new challenge with A Day for Daisies! For the next 2 weeks, we want you to add some GLITTER! I looooove me some glitter, so this was super easy and kind of a no-brainer for me. I used Forest Friends for today's project, which just so happens to be an Art Journal page. I haven't made one of these in about 9 months, and I REALLY need to start making them again.

I started off by "coloring" the tree with Vintage Photo Distress Stickles. Then, my son Phoenix and I colored in the leaves of the tree using a shimmery green gel pen. After the tree dried completely I applied some Glossy Accents to the grass and covered it all with Green Micro Glitter from Stampendous. Last, I colored the animals and sky with my Tombow Dual Brush watercolor markers.

Now it was time to play with my background. I sprayed it with 4 different mists, by just as many companies. One of them was Wedding Dress irRESISTables by Imagine Crafts, which is nice and thick, so I knew I could sprinkle some more glitter on top of it. I used my favorite glitter...Crystal Glitter Mix by Stampendous.

I needed more leafy green goodness, so I decided to use the Ginkgo Bough from Dreamweaver Stencils on the background. I inked it up with Honeydew Encore Ultimate Metallic ink from Imagine Crafts. I also added a simple sentiment from the Wild Sayings Stampendous set. I think that all of these elements really set the stage for the lovely Forest Friends image. I could even see printing the image out really big and making it a Spring time wall hanging. Please be sure to visit the rest of the A Day for Daisies team over on the blog. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Really like the look of the watercolor-brushed animals and that sentiment. Of course the shimmery glittery-ness is great, and probably hypnotizing IRL

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
