Wow! The month of February is already half gone!
Time sure flies when you get old. Damn.
Today I have four projects to share. Yeah, someone got her mojo flowin'.
These are the beginnings of my journal pages for the Dilly Beans
Red and Black challenge.
I absolutely LOVE the Dylusions ink sprays! They are so vibrant
and they blend so well together. I used the Postbox Red
and the Black Marble colors, and then used a cool rib cage stencil
from Retro Cafe Art. I spritzed the stencil with water, let the water
sit for a couple seconds, and then rolled a roll of paper towels over it to remove the inks. It's nice, right?
Same idea here, but used Retro Cafe diamond pattern stencil.
I used Dilly Beans #377 Martin's Heart image, and the Zombie sentiment
from Dilly Beans #375 Cute and Dark words set.
I also added the Zombie stencil from Retro Cafe Art on this one.
Looks so cool!!!
For this panel, I used #255 Framed Zombie Hearts 4, and another
sentiment from the Cute and Dark words set.
I couldn't help myself, and filled the heart at the bottom with
googly eyes. It goes with the sentiment, don't you think?
And now for something totally different.
The challenge this week at Sparkle and Glitter is
We are sponsored by Sweet Pea stamps.
I chose to use this gorgeous image from Ching Chou Kuik called,
I LOVE hummingbirds! I have a feeder right outside my living room
window so I can watch them feed and (unfortunately) fight for the feeder.
I collect their feathers as well. For what? I don't know yet.
This is another journal page. I used some home made acrylic sprays,
and my favorite tool, bubble wrap, for texture on the background.
Hummingbirds are quite difficult to color. It proved impossible for me
to capture their iridescence with Copics, but I tried.
Close-up of the varying textures of the painted page, the bubble wrap design, chipboard stickers, and the curled edge of the image.
I LOVE how this turned out!
This card is for my Grandma's birthday this Sunday.
She'll be a young 83, and doesn't act a day over 70! She is amazing,
and I LOVE and cherish her immensely. Another wonderful gift
given to me when I married my husband. We may not share the same bloodline, but she is definitely my Grandma!
I used all purples on this card, as purple is Grandma's favorite color,
She is stunning in any color!
Have a wonderful weekend.
