Dilly Beans Challenge theme is Spring. I used the Amalia & Laylah Dlly Beans image because it totally makes me smile. This image is going to be the one that I learn to color hair on. This is my first attempt, but I am going to practice, practice, practice until I get it! Aren't these girls sweet? I added some Martha Stewart punches (leaf and hydrengea) and sponged the image inside of a Spellbinders circel die. This cute little card is going to a sweet friend for her birthday. The Octopode Factory the challenge is all about Fashion. I purchased this wonderful William Shakespeare image from The Octopode Factory a few weeks ago, and I am having so much fun with it. There are a million Shakespeare quotes you can pair with it - that man was so prolific. I also used a Lilypink image - the designer loves The Octopode Factory and actually got me hooked on Octopodes so it was only fitting! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Hugz!!!
Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away. I have a combo creation - journal page and card. On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso. I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps. Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it (seriously). The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso. Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off. I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be). The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page. I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day. The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest
