Life Is Good

Hope everyone had a good weekend!  
Today I have a layout to share using the August kit from Artful Delight.  
There are still a few kits left.  If you would like to purchase one you can find them here.
I've been on a outline kick lately with my black zig writer pen.  Love the clean and crisp look!

Wish me luck today.  I've got a job interview and am really hoping for the best.

Thanks for stopping by!

Guest Designing at Scraptown Lady . . .

I'm guest designing today at Scraptown Lady!   I guest designed for Cheryl at Scraptown Lady last month with products from Prima's Fairy Belle Collection.  This time I created a canvas using the gorgeous detailed papers from Prima's Fairy Belle.
Along with the Prima Fairy Belle Papers and flowers from Cheryl's store I used  some Faber Castell Gelatos in Guava, Peach, Pistachio and Gold,  along with some Tattered Angels Blue Skies Glimmer Mist, Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist in Heirloom Gold and Mister Huey's Color Mist First Kiss.  Toss in some stickles in Frosted Lace and Pink, some white tulle and a few Martha Stewart gold butterflies, Dusty Attic Chipboard and my new Crafters Workshop Mini Halftone Borders mask.  Love this new mask!!

Thanks for stopping by!

One That Almost Got Away - Purple Pumpkin August Sketch Challenge

I want to share a layout with you that I created for the August sketch challenge at Purple Pumpkin.  I should have posted this the beginning of the month, but better late then never.
I used some Crate Paper Acorn Avenue (another forgotten purchase), along with some UmWow Studio chipboard and some Purple Pumpkin embellishments.

There is still plenty of time to enter the Purple Pumpkin August sketch challenge.  You can check out all of the details here along with the August sketch which I designed.

Thanks for stopping by!

Mixed Media Canvas

This month at Berry71bleu our challenge is hosted by Norma and it's a fun one, "Get Creative With Textiles."  Our DT is sponsored by Inkido with papers from their Beautiful Memories collection and Scrapiniec, a Polish manufacturer of gorgeous chipboard along with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft who sent the DT lots of products to work with.  I decided to step out of my comfort zone and create a mixed media canvas for Norma's challenge.
I really enjoyed working with the gelatos from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft.  Love the rich colors and various ways you can use them.

Here I used a Prima Mask and applied some modeling paste.  After the paste dried I used various colors of gelatos, Guava, Butter Cream, Chocolate, Metallic Blueberry and Earl Grey on the modeling paste.

I  applied some Faber-Castell Design Memory Crafts Gesso on a metal heart and once it dried I dabbed on some Chocolate gelatos.  I also dabbed my flowers with the Chocolate gelatos.

 I covered the Scrapiniec chipboards with gelatos, using Chocolate on one and a mixture of Earl Grey and Metallic Blueberry on the other one.  Love the details of the Scrapiniec chipboard!

I would love for you to join in on the fun and create a project for our August Challenge!  Check out Norma's post here and check out the wonderful prizes we have from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft.

Scrap Africa Guest Designer!

So happy to be guest designing at Scrap Africa today for their layout sketch #20 challenge!  I've spent many an hour going through my  never ending stash and came across the Hello Friend collection by Glitz Design.  Forgot all about it and when I looked through the papers I instantly knew I had to use it.
I misted the baclground paper with some Mister Huey's Color Mist in Opaque White and randomly inked some some yellow ink. I also used Prima's Lattice mask.

Here are a few closeups:
Lately I've been incorporating a lot of outlining in my layouts.  Here I have used the Martha Stewart Deep Edge Punch Wild Flowers and outlined it with a Zig Writer pen in Island Coral.

Trying ever so hard to get back into the swing of things with my crafting.
I'll be back in a few days to share another layout with you.

Thanks for stopping by!
