Not super crazy about this card - but it was something I wanted to try. I die cut the hearts with our hearts die set and then attached them to the fromnt of my card. The stamped the zig zag from Mad for Plaid set with Onyx ink on top. I accented the stitched with the Spica glitter gel pen but you can't see it in the photo. Add sentiment and heart twinkle sticker and voila! Not sure what I could do different to make me like it more!
So what's on your weekend agenda? Eric and Logan are on their way home from the Cotton Bowl. I am thinking a trip in to Hobby Lobby maybe? I have a list of things I NEED! Always a list huh? Even with a room packed full of stuff! I have been trying to use what I have and work from that. If I could only get it all re-organized and looking better in here! That is a MAJOR goal of 2012 for me. (how funny i accidentally put 2021 when i typed the year - i hope it does not take me that long!!!)
I did accomplish my goal of getting an entry in my art journal done yesterday - yeah! It is funny how I just want to creat but when i get there I am hesitant to do it! Wanna see??
I started with dictionary pages decoupaged to the page. I gesso'd over top of them and you can barely see them now - but i like the thickness it gives to the paper too! Then I scribbled on watercolor crayons and sprayed with a fine mister and blended it all in with a big wash brush.
Then I went to my stamps and inks! I used the circles and birds from Clever Girls and the foliage from Beautiful Botanicals 1 and 2 plus the cloud from Rock Star. Oh and I also added in the medium dots from Polka Dot Patterns. I used Blackberry, Fern and Slate inks plus Stazon Black for the birds and Stazon white for the polka dots.
I really enjoyed the process - and am looking forward to doing LOTS more this year! The goal is atleast once a week - maybe more!
