Charming Forest ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     After the holidays, I finally got a chance to play in my art journal again, creating a Charming Forest with a variety of stamps from Red Rubber Designs



     To start the year with positive energy, I started by stamping all of the quotes from the Be Happiness Unmounted Rubber Stamp Set onto white and cream cardstock, using black and brown permanent inks. Then I tore them into vertical strips, and adhered them onto both pages of my art journal. Next came a light coat of gesso, followed with some Lindy's Gang Sprays and Magicals, used to color these pages for the Lindy's Gang January Color Challenge



     I even added some Lindy's Sprays and Magicals to white and black gesso, applied to the Tim Holtz Woodgrain Stencil to make the tree trunk and door. It took several coats to color the bark, followed with a coat of LG Embossing Powder (Reindeer Moss Green). Then I embossed the door knob, made from a brad, with LG (Queen Sheba's Silver).



     The Charming Forest images were stamped a few times onto white cardstock with black permanent ink, embossed with LG (Reindeer Moss Green) EP, and colored with Sprays and Magicals. Then I dyed some cheesecloth with LG (Ponderosa Pines Olive) Starburst Spray to make the tree tops. 



     The lake was made with several layers of Sprays and Magicals, with some black gesso applied to a stencil to mimic ripples. Then I covered it all with a coat of Lindy's Embossing Powder (Angel Wings Peacock). The grass was done with the Mountain Scenery Stamp. 


     To make the bridge, I also embossed (Reindeer Moss Green) EP onto some twigs to make them look wet and mossy. The sides were made from some rope and green fibers. 



     Originally I was going to add beads to light my tree, but these lanterns are so much better! They were stamped onto white cardstock and embossed with LG (Midnight Pewter) EP, using part of one of the Victorian Embellishments Stamp. Then I colored them with (Brushed Nickel) Spray and (Yodeling Yellow) Magical Shaker, adding some bling to the bottoms. Finally, I used (Sidewalk Chalk) Spray to paint rays of light shining from the lanterns, followed with some Stickles (Diamond) for even more sparkle. 


Thanks for looking!

Bo Bunny (Winter Getaway) 2 Pager ~ FotoBella DT

     Winter is here and so is the new Bo Bunny (Winter Getaway) I Want It All Bundle from FotoBella.com! This collection was perfect to scrap these older photos of my husband and son at the park on this 2 page layout!




     Part of the title was cut with my Cricut Expression, using a sheet from the Bo Bunny (Winter Getaway) Coordinating Double Dot Paper Bundle. Then I used the Thickers included in the bundle to spell CHILL. 




     Some of the paper edges were painted with Dylusions (White Linen) using a Mini Blending Tool. Then I added some die cuts from the Noteworthy pack, and some ribbon from my own stash. 




     To the banner pieces, I inked the edges with Distress Ink (Black Soot)




      Since my son wasn't wearing a hat in these photos, I gave him one from the Noteworthy pack.
