April WRC Sketch Challenge

Hello! Today I am sharing my take on the White Rose Crafts April Sketch Challenge. I have set a goal for myself to translate each of the sketches into scrapbook pages. I haven't really had time to scrapbook at all lately, so this will ensure that I have at least 12 layouts by the end of the year. Here's my page, featuring my daughter when she was about 2.
And this is the original sketch:
I thought this sketch was pretty perfect for a scrapbook page, since I often take multiple shots at once. After I had chosen my photos, I picked out my papers and additional elements. I was once again inspired by Kaisercraft's Bombay Sunset 6x6 paper pad (I just can't get enough of that collection!), and I thought it worked with the colors in the photos nicely.
You can see the beautiful foiling on this piece of paper. The one I used for matting my photos doesn't have foil, but it is quite lovely. For my journaling spot. I used a background that I made some time ago with Distress Oxides. I wrote the journaling with a Spectrum Noir metallic marker. My title was made with a very old QuicKutz die set. Around my edges, I applied some Nuvo Expanding Mousse in Worn Linen with a palette knife, sweeping it towards the center of my page. I heat set it to help it expand. I applied it fairly tin, so it didn't expand too much, which was what I wanted.
My horizontal panel has Kaisercrafts's Fading Dots stamp on it, applied a few times to fill in the entire space. I used Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide for it. Combining all of these products helped me to create a fun mixed media scrapbook page. I love using a wide variety of techniques on a page, because there is so much room to play. If you'd like to join in the White Rose Crafts April Sketch Challenge, you'll need to head over to the White Rose Crafts Gallery and add your creation to the appropriate album. You can make anything you'd like with the sketch. Then, head over to White Rose Crafts LLC to check out some of the products I used on today's layout. 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 "

Dream Big: Imagine Collaboration with Joy Clair

Hello! The Artists in Residence for Imagine had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Joy Clair. They sent us some fabulous stamps, and I really love them. The stamps have such beautiful details, and there are many many options within each set. I chose to work with the Dream Big Clear Stamp Set. It features a big dream catcher with feathers and beads that you can place as you wish.  It's linework is so fine, that I knew that VersaFine ink would be the perfect ink for these stamps. But first, I chose to spritz some Fireworks! on to my watercolor paper. I focused on keeping the color up where I would place the dream catcher later. After the Fireworks! dried, I inked up the hoop of the dream catcher and stamped it out. Then I "built" the rest of the dream catcher using the beads and feathers that are also in the set. It was so much fun to create the rest of the piece. After I was happy with the beads and feathers, I drew a "string" with a PITT pen
