Color in Sticker Owl

Hello! I am so pleased to share my second project as a White Rose Crafts Design Team Member. This week, we are focusing on "Leaves and Harvest of Color," plus the October Add-Ons to the October Kit. October (and Autumn) is my favorite time of year, so this theme made me very happy. Also, White Rose Crafts has a Sketch Challenge going on right now, so I opted to use that for my card layout. You can check out the sketch at the bottom of my post.

For this card, I decided to work with the Papermania Glitter Color in Stickers- Owl. I colored my owl with PITT pencils from Faber Castell. What I really love about these stickers is that they are just that...stickers! No need for adding adhesive, no cutting. They are perfect for coloring on the go, and then you can apply them to your projects easily.

I used some oval dies that I had in my stash as a mat for the owl (and because it goes with the sketch) and then I worked on my background. The focus is definitely the Gold Shimmer Paper from Craft Creations. The iridescence is stunning! You'll be able to see the wide range of colors that is has on each of my pictures. I also added a few sequins from the Love Potion Sparkle Blend.

Look at the colors and shine on that Gold Shimmer Paper! I love it! And it tears really nicely as you can see. Lastly, I added a simple "Thanks" from Lawn Fawn and heat embossed it with white powder. This card would work with many sentiments. Now, let's compare my card to the sketch, shall we?

I'd say that that's pretty close! If you would like to play along with this month's Sketch Challenge, please click HERE for all of the details. And why not head over to the White Rose Crafts LLC shop to check out all of the wonderful October Add-On items that are on sale? Don't forget to use the code: HAPPY FALL to get your discount. I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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
