Aurora Wings Challenge #70: Sketch

Hello! Today I am sharing a card for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is to use the sketch provided by Mitzi (see below). I opted to once again use an adorable Sprite for my project, and this time it is the Cherry Sprite. You can find her HERE on the Aurora Wings site, and HERE on Etsy. Here is the sketch...
And here is my take on the sketch.

I started off by coloring my Sprite, as I always do. The colors I use then help me choose my papers. I decided to use my new dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs to create my circles.  I simply cut the same circle twice, out of two papers, and inlaid the polka dot paper into the green, so it's flat.

The hardest part for me on this card was arranging my sequins, which was a combination of Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground, and a few (the glittery gold ones) that I had gotten from Ink Road Stamps. For my sentiment, I used a lovely "smile" from Honey Bee Stamps.

It's been a while since I've done a sketch challenge, and I didn't realize how much I missed doing them. I hope you will play along with this Aurora Wings Challenge. Please be sure to visit the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the team has come up with. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Absolutely precious, Alison! Such an adorable Sprite you've chosen and I love how the dots on your die cuts echo the dotty DP. The deep green showcases not only your beautiful coloring, but the amazing array of sequins, as well. Love that bold sentiment, too. FAbulous work! xxD

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

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w


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 . 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
