White Rose Crafts February Sketch Challenge

Hello! Today I have something that I haven't done in far too long. A scrapbook page! Oh man, how I miss making these. It's a goal of mine to get more layouts made this year. I was really inspired by the February White Rose Crafts Sketch Challenge, and I am hoping to make each one this year a scrapbook page.

I had this photo from a few years ago. It was springtime, and the beautiful magnolia tree in my neighbor's yard was blooming, so it was a perfect opportunity to get some great shots of my kids. This one was a favorite.
I love the beautiful flowers from the Altair "Ever Dream" Ephemera Sheet, and I fussy cut several of the elements out. They coordinated perfectly with my photo. It's hard to tell, but my daughter's dress is covered in butterflies, so the butterflies on this sheet were just right for this page too.
I took some Turquoise Creative Medium from Imagine and the Circles and Pluses stencil from Studio Light and applied it to my background with a palette knife. It is a subtle background, but when the light hits it just right, it really pops and adds a wonderful graphic quality to an otherwise very "pretty" layout. The Creative Medium adds wonderful dimension too. I decided to also ink the edges of the page with an Ink Blending Tool and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide. I thought that this would really bring your eye on to the layout.
To "ground" my photo, I added a torn strip of navy blue Mulberry Lace Paper. I added to layers of lavender cardstock for my photo mats and sentiment (from Birch Press). I also die cut a Lawn Fawn heart (from the Magic Slider Die Set) as a journaling spot, as well some sequins from the "Vixen" Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground. All of my ephemera, sequins, etc was attached with On Point Glue from Imagine.
I truly enjoyed working from the sketch that was created for this challenge. How would you interpret it?
If you would like to play along, please join us over at the White Rose Crafts Facebook Group! You can add your version of the sketch to our photo album, and see what other WRC friends have created.

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
