Hey!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend :D I enjoyed some quality time with my family, got a chance to do a little crafty shopping and relaxed a bit too. My daughter-in-law and I made the rounds to Michaels and Hobby Lobby. We both picked up some fun stuff so yesterday we were up in the studio working our magic ;D She started working on an Art Journal and I played with my new Spellbinders Spiral Blossom One then finished up a journal that I started on last week.
Ok, remember my Purple Beauty post? As much as I tried to make it purple...........well, I just show you what happened:
So....I started out with every intention of creating a purple journal. I painted on varying shades of purple then stamped on some branches and used a stencil to add some interest........
But I just don't get along with purple, lol. Purple and I just can't communicate so I washed on my good buddy blue and added some lime green for contrast :D
Sorry forgot to get some pics along the way.
Since I didn't really like the way the background turned out, it was time to search through my scrap bins. I pulled out some white cardstock that I use when I have extra ink on my stamp that I wanna use up or as a background when I'm misting. It was perfect so on it went! Next I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the bingo card, I forgot how much fun my Cuttlebug can be. It's been ages since I've pulled it out and I'm ashamed to say that I had a lot folders that I'd never even opened, Yikes! Anyway, I inked it, sprayed it with some mist, roughed up the edges and glued it on :D
I attached the printed packing tape and some craft tapes I picked up at Michaels over the weekend. The tag is from one of my DH's shirts and I added the graphic cuz I thought it went with the design. To finish things up, I wrote out "live inspired" cut it out and outlined it with red. At this point, I needed more red so I attached a little strip at the bottom and the piece on the top. The little clip is Tim Holtz and I used little stickers to spell out "create".
It's funny how a project evolves so much from start to finish. Do you always start with a plan and stick with it all the way through or do you just go with the flow like me?
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
