YSA'S CARD


Hi, thanks for stopping by and looking. This is a card I did for a good friend and ex co-worker. Can you tell that her favorite color is aqua, well I tried, mine is teal so I fused it, lol. 

Here I worked with DCWV paper collection "The Primrose", wonderful graphic's. Also used some Graphic 45's "Secret Garden", oh believe me the two merge beautifully together, strongly recommend it. The flowers were made by me using the Retro flower punch out and EK Success's flower punch out for the peonies, well that's what there suppose to be but look more like cabbage roses, anyway....lol. Did some distressing using Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo distress ink pads and some blue string I found at Target on clearance for .37 cents, four styles of string, awesome find. 

I hope your like it. Thanks again for stopping by and looking.....Selah!!!

Pretty simple, if you have any question just send me a message or leave a comment, thanks for looking......Selah!!!

Happy (PIT June 09 sketch)


This is the sketch from Pages In Time for the June 09, go check out the site they have such wonderful sketches.


Hi, this is may take on the sketch, this was sooooo much fun to do. The colours we a challenge for me because there not in my safe zone, but little girls should get there bright colours now and then, lol. 

Tried a new technique I saw and loved it which is dry painting acrylic on the paper and writting on it, awesome.

So simple to do just don't add water to the brush to and just plain acylic paint, thats what will give you that sort of broken up part in the paint to make it look old. Love it!!!

Well I hope you liked it, if you have any question just leave me a comment. Don't forget to visit Pages In Time, you'll love it. Thanks for stopping by!!!!

THOSE EYES


Hi, this is a layout I did of, again, my bbf's little girl. I tried to step out of my safe zone here with all the tones of pinks and bright green. Hope it came out okay, lol. This is for the May 26 sketch over at Pages In Time.

  1. Just two layers here, first is regular textured dark pink card stock. The second is a paper I brought at my local scrapbooking shop but again for the life of me I can't remember the name of it, so sorry about that one....ah....I did it again. 
  2. I then took a paper trim cut it up punched some holes in it and weaved the ribbon through the hole. This technique mind you is not of my own invention, lol, its a fabulous style from Grabrielle Pollacco. She's just such a talented person, love her work. On the side column of my blog is her blog site, just click and it will take you direct. Then I added a string of pearls to give it that shabby chic look to it and where the space is from weaving the ribbon I glued a flower.
  3. Then I took a scallop circle, inked the edges and punched holes close to the edge. Put some bling I have and placed it behind the photo.
  4. Under the photo I placed a liked peach coloured paper that I then trimmed with lace at the edge of the photo.
  5. I took three strips of mint green, soft pink and light olive, stamped them with a swirl style clear stamp in black Staz-on ink and inked the edges of the strips with Black Soot distress ink. I then turned down the corners in a ladder style to give it dimension. Fancy cut some fairy's from the G45 collection Once Upon A Springtime. The bunny, little mouse and bird are also from that collection.
  6. The flowers are from my own stash.
  7. The title is from the Cricut cartridge "George Basic Shapes" in dark brown cardstock.
  8. The fairies wings and the edge of the flowers where the ribbon is are painted in Stickles  in Diamond.
Well, I hope you've like my layout, if you have any question just leave me a comment and I'll get back to you, thanks for stopping by, Selah!!!
