LITTLE DARLINGS COLLECTION (GRAPHIC 45) BABY BOY CARD

Found the inspiration for this by doing a Pinterest search! First time I have turned the time spent "pinning" into an actual project LOL  Simple and straight forward.  Off to a baby shower this afternoon and this does the trick quite nicely!

I used a deckle edged card, CoreDinations card stock, buttons, ribbon and gel pens from my stash, waxed linen thread I found in the DH's workshop (he must have picked that up for me!) and pp's all from the Graphic 45 Little Darlings Collection.

ALPHASTAMPS POST CARD SWAP - WISH YOU WERE HERE (BEACH THEME)

Until the last week, I have been away from home most weeks and so behind in posting, visiting and creating!  Even when the same image is chosen, a different take on it.  The Graphic 45 Boardwalk papers were a natural here.

What I received!




A link back to what I sent:

And the Boardwalk art book I will put them in;



ALPHASTAMPS FAN BLADE SWAP - THE ROMANCE OF PERFUME

I have been having such fun in the AlphaStamps Swaps the last few months!  I love the different take that each of us always have in a swap.  Here are the fanblades I received back and a link back to my post of  what I sent;

LIVING LIFE IN MY TRUE COLOURS


The final project of the "Color Love 101" class I have been participating in.  This is the first time I have done something quite like this and I am thrilled with my "art girl"!  I will figure out a redo on the phrase and repost but I couldn't wait...it's ok to be childlike on occasion!  I am going to use her as my new avatar for blogging and I have put her up on my FB page..not changing my FB photo I still use FB for some work projects.  Well maybe..I will think on that LOL

SUMMER OF COLOUR #2 - ICE CREAM INSPIRATIONS WEEK 5


It's not too late to check out Kristin's Summer of Colour 2 for an amazing variety of inspiration!  This week's inspiration "Wild 'n Reckless" sherbet.


Purple, blues and green - wow!  I'm still multi-tasking with my projects, these are the perfect colours (not as subdued as this scan appears)  to work into the Mermaid themed mini card swap with JoAnne of The Vintage Dragonfly.  


Images are from Steam Dust Studios on Etsy and are mounted on a background I created in Colour Love 101, not sure that you can see the beach I created at the bottom with Glossy Accents and sand, I embedded sea  charms and shell sequins from AlphaStamps, hotfixed Swarovski crystals and framed it all with a lovely blue green Twinkling H20.

SUMMER OF COLOUR #2 - ICE CREAM INSPIRATIONS WEEK 4

STRAWBERRY LEMONADE PUNCH (click here to check it out!)



Still working on my LetterLove 101 and ColorLove 101 classes from Joanne Sharpe, I decided to do a simple exemplar (fancy new word!) of a printed alphabet in my practice journal.  Nothing too perfect, took license with a mix of letters!  More play with the watercolour Inktense pencils (yellow and the outliner), first time out with a Gelato (pink chalk pastel crayon), Pitt Artist pens and Tombow markers.
