Use School Paper with ADfD

Greetings! It's time for a new challenge with A Day for Daises! And, we are going to be changing things up a little bit...so please be sure to visit the ADfD Blog to get all of the info. For our newest challenge, we ant you to use "School Paper." What that means is up to your interpretation. Here's my creation.

I used the Painter's Palette image for my piece. I have been playing with my new Zig Clean Color Markers, and I cannot say enough great things about them. They're awesome, and soooo perfect for this image.

I love how the colors turned out on the palette. I used 2 Zigs for each paint drop, and i think the finished effect was cool. I also played a bit with a water brush, which I have ever used before. I still prefer a regular brush with a cup f water to a water brush, but it's fun to play with and good for traveling.

For the "School Paper," I took a calendar page out of my son's planner from school. It's last year's planner, so he didn't mind. I made the project 6x6 to go in my mini page album that I have seriously neglected in the past year. Time to make some more! I like to make these mini pages because I don't send a ton of cards out, so instead these pages just go in an album to be enjoyed rather than in a box where they may or may not get mailed out.

Please play along with the new A Day for Daises Challenge. You can find out more info, and see other great projects all on the ADfD Blog. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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
