White With 1 Challenge
Live Laugh Love
This month at White With 1 the criteria are: Purple & White + Doodling. Had this one sitting on my desk and wasn't sure how to add some doodling to it. I always get nervous with doodling as I'm not very confident with this style, so I just added a scribble doodle around the LO and on the journal spot.
Had a bit of a play with textures on my background for this one. I scrunched up some tissue paper to add some dimension and sprayed over the top with Fully Purple glimmermist. To create a circular design I painted around the edges with white paint leaving a rough circle of the misting exposed, then scrunched up some Tim Holtz tissue tape around the circle to create a border. I also stamped randomly with a music stamp and instead of ink I used some purple Smooch pearlized accent ink for a little shimmer. The smooch was also used on the Scrapmatts word chippies to tie in with the purple theme.
The central circular design was created with a paper doily and I misted a Prima mask onto white cardstock with the purple glimmermist and hand cut the masked image to create a soft dreamy feel.
A Couple of Birthday Cards
This card was made for my nephew's 20th birthday using some Graphic 45, Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket pp's, with a little bit of hessian and Tim Holtz tissue tape for a some texture. I inked the tape with some Distress Ink to tone in with my papers and embossed the Cosmo Cricket paper with a Tim Holtz embossing folder for a little added grunge.
The second card was made for my daughters friend Holly who just turned 15. I usually make very feminine cards with lots of gorgeous flowers for Brittany's friends but Holly is not a girly girl so I toned it down and kept it simple. Took all my willpower not to add flowers, but I did add the doily elements.
A Little Toot!
Only just found out a few days ago that the Websters InspireMe blog site have used one of my LO's as their "Banner of the Week".. and also got a little blurb written by Brandin about my work on the side of their blog.. was very excited when I found out and it made my day a little brighter which was nice. Check it out HERE not sure how much longer it will be up there.
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving some love :)))
