Hello, my crafty friends, and welcome back to the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo blog. I can’t believe how fast our show season is flying by! There are only six shows left for 2018, so I hope you’re planning to be at one of them. It truly makes my heart sing being able to craft with you in person at the Creativity Center, so gather up your creative peeps and start planning that much needed weekend away, you deserve it. Let’s get today’s creative therapy started, shall we?
I Instantly fell in love with those gorgeous denim blue colors and all that yummy texture. Farrell used lots of Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces which, as you can see, added lots of visual interest to this gorgeous layout. Whether this is your first mixed media layout or you are a mixed media queen, this is one post you don’t want to miss. Farrel shares some great tips and techniques that you are sure to use over and over again.
I hope you’ve been inspired to break out those new supplies that you purchased at the last show and put them to good use. I know that mixed media can be a bit intimidating at first, but once you get your feet wet, you’ll discover that it’s a very forgiving art form. Big hugs to Farrel for showing us how it’s done.
With large word dies being all the rage, I thought you might be inspired by this sweet card of encouragement. Therese has some really great tips for using those word dies that you’ve been collecting. Don’t you just love how she added a black shadow, it really makes the word “You” just pop.
If you are a visual person like myself, I highly recommend checking out the great video tutorial that Therese created filled with lots of useful tips. Kudos to you for sharing those smiles one handmade card at a time.
It’s time to break out those watercolor markers and your favorite stamp set because after you watch Nichol’s video tutorial you are going to be itching to play. Coloring directly on stamps with water-based markers is really a fun and easy way to create some amazing backgrounds. What a creative way to customize your watercolor backgrounds. Big hugs to Nichol for sharing her creativity.
If you would like to see how this beautiful card comes together, click here and I will be happy to take you over to Nichol’s blog so you can follow along as Nichol’s video tutorial takes you from start to finish.
Because you can jump start this recipe by using store-bought flatbread, this yummy meal comes together in no time. It would take less time than ordering and waiting for a pizza to be delivered. Click here and I will escort you over to the Pure Wow Food Blog so you can print out the easy-to-follow recipe.
Thanks for sharing part of your Sunday with me, I hope to see you back soon.
Hugs to all,
