Aurora Wings Challenge #75

Hello! Today I have a 6" x 6" mini page that I am sharing for the latest Aurora Wings challenge, which is "Over the Rainbow." I was very inspired by the beautiful Unicorn Sprite.

I colored her with Zig Clean Color Markers, and I really took my time with her. I love how she turned out.
I knew I didn't want to put her on a card, so I decided to make a page for a 6" x 6"  album that I am making that is dedicated to the Sprites from Aurora Wings.
I decided to create an altered rainbow using Distress Oxides in Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, and Dusty Concord. I splattered the inked background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle from Imagine. I chose a Laurel Burch ("Celebrate Dreams") sentiment from Stampendous and stamped it with VersaFine Clair ink in Fantasia. I also used a star die from Rubbernecker Stampers with a silver vellum on the background, as well as another vellum with the Cloud Die from Stampendous' Meadow Edger's Die set. Lastly, I added a lot of lovely sequins from the "Vixen" Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground.
I love working with the Aurora Wings Sprites, and I am especially happy with how this sweetie turned out. She will b perfect in my mini album, although my kids want to hang her in their room! Please be sure to visit the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog to add your "Over the Rainbow" project to the blog. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

What a magical page, Alison! I really love your modified rainbow colors you've carried throughout and it's obvious you took your time coloring Unicorn Sprite. The outcome is amazing. Love the vellum accents and sparkle, too. What a perfect project for our theme. Gorgeous! xxD
This is so beautiful, Alison! Gorgeous coloring in clean colors. The way you highlighted the mane and tail bring such dimension and life to the Unicorn Sprite! Love the background, too. Thank you so much for this gorgeous inspiration for today's mid-challenge post. M xxx

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

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 "
