I'm so happy and honored
Our hostess, the amazingly
(Isn't this a fabulous photo!)
Having been a book
seller for thirteen years, I love using book paper... and as you can see by this partial stack from my stash, am well prepared...
in fact, so prepared,
that I created two projects. The first is this art journal page...
Along with the book
paper is My Mind's Eye Sunshine collection papers, a French lace paper doily and a Prima clock. The page is bordered with vintage lace from my stash.
The tiny I Am Roses
blossoms were edged with the same Yellow Ochre acrylic artist paint I used on the page. The leaves are from IAR, also. The white Bristo fabric flower is from Prima.
I used molding
paste with the Crafter's Workshop stencil Mini Tile Texture... which is my favorite at the moment especially on these smaller size pages.
The sweet bird image
is from Digital Perfection on Etsy.
For my second
project, I did a CAS card. As I said before, I have to do more in this style so they can be mailed in regular flat envelopes.
This is on a Recollections
Kraft cardstock base with ivory mats. The patterned paper was a scrap from the Tecolote Pixie Dust Paperie kit from September 2011. I believe it is GCD Studio's Ella Blue... just guessing. Both sides were fabulous, and I wish I could just hoard it... but then we couldn't enjoy looking at it! So I stamped right on it with Jet Black Archival Ink, and am so please with the results. The stamp is from the MidWinter set from Artistic Outpost.
Some of the book
papers came from a PD kit also... Blue Moon from October 2011... the lovely Lauren Bergold assembling the bundle of ephemera.
I chose this sheet
for the cold description. The snowflakes were made from the mini Alterations die set and the rhinestones are from TPC Studio.
Sorry this is so
long a post... hope you stayed with me to the end because I want to encourage you to hop over to CCCB and check out the DT's lovely creations. Have a happy day!
