You Shine Brighter Than Neon!


   Happy Tuesday!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  Life has been crazy busy this past week.  I just started a new class towards my Bachelors and as always, I feel as though I never have enough time for anything.  So, I am running a bit late on this weeks challenge over at Stampotique Originals, but i managed to squeak in before the deadline. This weeks challenge hostess is Astrid Stulemeijer and here is what she has to say about this weeks challenge.

"At first I was a bit afraid of these intense colors, but after using them, I really love them.  They give your work such a nice "pop".  I challenge you to use at least one neon color.  Can't wait to see your eye popping work!"
  
I decided to make a small journal piece, using Kate Crane's Bunny Boy, and splatter Blob for my background, which I did with acrylic paint. I hope you will check out our new challenge tomorrow and come play.

Going Grey With Scrap-Creations Challenge: Pastels

   Happy Tuesday and Happy St. Paddy's Day.  I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  We have a great challenge for you this week.  We want to see your projects using pastels.....Pastels is definitely a challenge for me.  I am more of a brights girl myself, but I managed.  I created this journal page using acrylic paint for my background, and I used two of  Stampotiques new stamps: Queen of Everything, and Crowd .   I will admit that I had a rough start on this page, as I had no idea what I was doing, but it worked out, and I used PASTELS :)
   
   Last weeks "green" challenge entries were fantastic, and as always it was hard to choose....The TOP 3 last week were:

                                                                          Jose

Stars






                Happy Wednesday!!!!  I hope you are having a great week this far.  The time change has me all messed up this week I have been late with everything I do. Dang time change! Anyway, I managed to get this weeks challenge completed.  This weeks challenge over at Stampotique Originals is being hosted by sue and Carol, and here is what Carol has to say "stars, use one star or more on your project."
                     For this weeks challenge, I decided to use stars in my background,  I had bigger hopes for this journal page, but oh well.  I inked the background with Dylusions sprays and then used paint to make the stars.  I used the following stamps in my project:

                                                               Kates Angel
                                                            Scalloped Lace
                                                                       A Heart
I hope you will hop on over to STampotique Originals and join us for this weeks challenge and a chance to win free product!

Follow your heart!



    Wahoo...It's Friday...this week as been CRAZY busy!!! I pulled 3 ten hours day, which wouldn't be bad, if we didn't also have hockey, dance, gymnastics, school, oh yeah, family, house, and dogs....anyway, it's Friday and I am OFF....whoop, whoop...Today I would like to share with you a journal page I made for this weeks Stampotique originals challenge, which is hosted by Jackie Payne, and here is what she had to say: "Numbers have been around for a very long time!  They feature so much in our lives!  I would like you to incorporate a minimum of one number into your project!  I hope you have fun."
      I was excited about this challenge, but had to push myself, as I had no idea what I was going to make.  I found some numbered patterned paper, and wanted to use it in my project, so I ended up painting the paper, and then painting it again, and using it on my top and bottom borders. I also couldn't wait to play with Kate Cranes new stamp Boots, which I used in my project and once I started working, I decided I wanted to give boots some wings, and I used the wings from one of Kate's other stamps: Kate's angel. I drew the cloud, and bam...journal page complete!!!  This weeks number challenge is super fun adn I hope you will join us over at Stampotique Originals!  Have a great weekend.

Going Grey With Scrap-Creations: Lets see some Green




     Happy Tuesday!!! I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  This week, we have a great challenge for you.....This week, we want to see your GREEN! Continuing with my art journal, I chose to make a green background, and add this super cute owl I made in one of Kate Cranes on-line classes, and since I have "pinned" a million sayings over at pinterest, I figured I bet getting using those as well.  That way I can justify my time on pinterest as useful...LOL.... So, lets see your green!!!
  
        Last weeks BINGO creations were awesome!!! You are all so creative....narrowing down the top 3 was definitely a difficult task, but I somehow managed....so...drum roll please.......Last weeks TOP 3 are......
