Well hello! Look at me posting twice this week;) I don't know how some of you post several times a week, and some of you daily! This week I just had a lot going on, creating things for many challenges so let's get to more of them shall we?
First up is a journal page made for the Art Journal Journey challenge which I am hosting this month with the theme of "Creature Comforts". You can read the description and see lots of inspiration here. And do join us won't you? Nothing brings comfort in the fall like a warm quilt, and fall foods-like pears. I stitched the pear images to the background page and used a Tim Holtz Occasions sticker.
For the Simon Monday Challenge (Cityscape) I have this card:
Products: white notecard; patterned paper; Tim Holtz layering stencil- Rays and Small talk Occasions stickers; Hero Arts rubber stamp-International Skyline; postage washi tape (unknown); Versafine Onyx Black ink; Archival Buttercup ink; tiny heart (Doodlebug Design Inc.).
For Tag Tuesday(Bunting or Flags) and the Simon Wednesday Challenge (Anything But a Card) I made this:
Products: manila tag (Ranger); patterned paper and twine from my stash; garland (Studio Calico); girl and sentiment (Muse News Stamp set(designed by Andrea Ockey Paar for Inky Antics); Peerless watercolors; Versafine Onyx Black ink; Archival Pink Peony ink; gel plate print from my stash; sequin waste; rub on letters (Making memories); Tim Holtz mini stapler.
And finally I have another journal page meant for Try It On Tuesday (Black, White and 1 Other Color) and Paint Party Friday:
I was playing with my black and grey Marabu art sprays thru a stencil on this page and left it a few days- and then the Try it on Tuesday challenge appeared along with my new Andrea Ockey Paar stamps (LOVE!) and I just had to play along:)
I find that challenges like these keep me fresh, on my toes, and even out of my comfort zone at times, what about you?
Have a fabulous upcoming weekend! I hope all that were somehow in Hurricane Michael's path have fared well through its destructive path. Thanks for popping in!
