More projects to share ...

OMG ... TWO days in a row ...  I'm trying to dust off the blog and get back into regular posting!

First, a few more projects for Creative Imaginations for CHA Summer 2012. The layouts below were created with IOD's Rejoice collection! As soon as I saw the sneak peeks from CI, I HAD to use this collection. The frist layout I kept kinda simple to highlight the adorable photo taken by my great photographer friend Heather Chick.


I didn't even distress or ink on this layout - just clean and simple but still layers on layers and lace and twine for some texture - and a popped up banner ...

My second layout is a bit more detailed with alot of fussy cutting to create a dimensional frame around the page. I took full advantage of all the great diecut shapes and stickers that coordinate with this gorgeous, vintagey collection.

I did distress and ink and added some fun Petaloo flowers and more doilies and a few extra angels for good measure.

My final project to share is another art journal page I finished last night. The  background of this page is a culmination of "leftovers" from prior projects - a cleaning of a stamp, left over modeling paste on a stencil that was too good to waste, inks from other stencils, etc. The background was so bold that I off-set it with a white flower created with gesso on a foam stamp. The words are very meaningful to me now as I'm trying out new mediums, journals, and just about anything new to me! Here's the page and thanks for stopping by ...
