Yummy gelatos in my Art journal

Michelle over at Everything Scrapbook and Stamps was handing out yummy gelato's this month and guaranteed No calories gained after indulging in playing with the Gelatos.  This month our art challenge was to use 3 gelato colors and spread them using a glaze. Once colors blended I spread a thin layer of gesso to lighten the color. 

Next I added more color using a heart stencil and molding paste. This popped the color again but with awesome texture in this layer.

The next layer was random stamping using similar ink color for more texture. 

Lastly I stamped and image and words to finish my page off. 

The page reads "because when you look around this life is pretty amazing... remember to not let others take advantage of you".  A message I need to focus on lately. 

Happy with the results so calling it a night!

A girl can only dream...


That's dreaming about going back to those younger years and playing with my Paper dolls again.  Well thanks to Julie Nuttings we can play with paper dolls again.

I had the pleasure of getting to take a class with Julie over at Everything Scrapbook and Stamps last month. I took two classes. The first class we used her amoir tags. Loved the size of the Tags and how you can open the doors and hide words inside. 

The second class was a banner class. Perfect for hanging in my studio. Another cool option for the banners Julie shared was to use them to decorate a gift bag. 

I was enjoying my younger self playing with paper, colored pencils, scissors and glue. The perfect weekend! 

Happy crafting!!
