Fall Art Journal Page

For my Early Christmas Giveaway, click HERE

Happy Monday!! This is a scheduled post, so I'm hoping everything works :) I have a fall journal page to share with you today.


It's been a while since I did this so I don't remember all of the items I used. The background was spritzed with water and then Dylusions sprays in Squeezed Orange, Pure Sunshine,Cherry Pie, Postbox Red and Back Marble. Crafter's Workshop Harlequin, Chevron and Numbers stencils were used with both sprays and water for a ghosting effect. The leaves are from the Dylusions Further Around the Block stamp set. They were colored in with several Dylusions sprays that were added to water brushes. They were outlined with a white Sakura Gelly Roll pen. Stamps from Paper Wings Productions Art Textures were stamped on the background with Wendy Vecchi Archival Inks in Potting Soil, Geranium and Orange Blossom. The text stamp is from the Tim Holtz Apothecary set. The birds are from Dylusions Birds on a Wire stamp set. The bottom border is from Dylusions Further Around the Block and colored in with Dylusions inks in water brushes.


The girl's head is from Dylusions Traveling Travis stamp set, and her body from Tallulah Tripp. She was colored in with Tim Holtz Distress Markers and a TH water brush. She was outlined with charcoal.


The sentiment is from Dylusions The Right words stamp set. It was outlined with charcoal.


Thanks so much for stopping by!! Remember, if you comment on my scheduled posts, you increase your chance of winning a set of Tim Holtz stamps and a My Mind's Eye paper stack!! Have a great day :)

Tiny Little Thing

Happy Sunday!! I hope you are having a great weekend!! I have been working away in my craft room, trying to get projects done before I go on vacation later this month. I'll be gone for two weeks, so not only to I have to complete the projects but schedule the posts too. Plus pack!! So much to do :)


There are a couple of challenges I wanted to enter, so I have a baby card to share with you today :)


The papers for this card are from the 12x12 My Mind's Eye Lost and Found stack. I love the patterns, but the paper is thinner than the smaller packs, so it's not as easy to work with. I just used it for the base and anything I didn't have to die cut.


Spellbinders Exquisite Circles were used for the medallion. The paper is heavyweight cardstock from Canvas Corp. It was inked with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar Distress Ink, as were all of the edges of the papers. Each layer of the circles were popped up with foam tape for dimension and pearls were added from my stash. The sentiment is from Hampton Arts and stamped in TH Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Craftin' Desert Diva's #14 - Babies
  2. Funday Friday #16 - Sketch Time (see below)
  3. DL.Art - Thankful Thursday - September Anything Goes
  4. Just B Creative Crazy - Just Because September Linky Party
  5. Cut It Up Challenge - Labor Day

Thanks so much for stopping by today :)
