Boho Thanks

Hello! Today I am sharing my second project as a Guest Designer for Doodles Paper Playground. Last week, I shared a shaker card with the Crown Jewel Sparkle Blends. This time, I wanted to use the elements in the blends a little differently, and this is what I came up with.

This card uses the Ocean View Sparkle Blend and the set has teeny tiny micro beads that don't have a hole. I decided to add them to the centers of the sequins that I applied around the card. This added some nice dimension to my almost 1 layer card. Here's a close up of Ocean View. There's even little dolphins in this mix!

 To make my card, I stamped a few of the images from Stampendous' Paisley Pattern cling set with Twilight VersaFine Clair Ink. I kept the images around the edge of the card, hanging off. Next, I colored it in with Zig Clean Color Markers.

I kept my color palette really simple, sticking to the tones found in the Ocean View Sparkle Blend, with the exception of the greens. For my sentiment, I used an old QuicKutz Diesel die cut font and painted my letters with either Bahama Blue or Paris Night Fireworks! from Imagine. Painting the color on, instead of spraying it, gave me an even layer of color and shimmer. The elements from the Sparkle Blend was applied with On Point Glue, also from Imagine.

I don't usually work with such a restricted color palette, but I have to say, I liked it! These shades of blue really look beautiful together, and the shimmer on the letters stands out more because of the beautiful shine from the sequins of the Ocean View Sparkle Blend. I'll share another project for Doodles Paper Playground very soon. Remember, you can only get Sparkle Blends at White Rose Crafts, and I have an exclusive discount for you.

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
