My word…..

Standard

Hello there my blogging friends.  Tonight I have another art journalling page I did for a challenge.  The challenge was to create a project using your word for the year…..a quote to go with that word and your favorite colors.  This was a fun page to do and I’m finding that I think far too much when I create.  Here is the finished product……check it out and see what you think!

So, here it is.  Almost all of the supplies I used I got from my favorite place – Scrapn’ With Flair .  I used a lot of my favorite sprays…..my Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays and these sprays and spritz’s are soooo much fun to use!  And I love the shimmer they leave on anything you spray them on.  I also used some of my Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Broken China, Salty Ocean, Peeled Paint, Dried Marigold and some of my Distress Stains in Broken China and Peeled Paint for the paint splatters.  I used my Picket Fence Stain for the white droplets.  The flowers are also from Scrapn’ With Flair and I’m in love with these things!!  The orange one came that color and the two blue ones were white and I spritzed them with one of  my mini misters I got from the store with some water and Salty Ocean re-inker mixed in.  Loved the results!!  The string of flat-backed pearls and the green lace (which was white and colored with the Peeled Paint Distress Stain) and my title of “courage”, which are chip board letters that I spritzed,  are also from the July SWF kit(s) from the store…..check it out here…..it’s a FANTASTIC kit and well worth it!!  My Tim Holtz bird cage die cut is one of my fav’s and was also from the store.  (How can you tell I love that place!!  LOL).  I used my Broken  China and Black Soot Distress Markers on the page as well.   The more I use these things the more I’m liking them.  I just need to find me some water-color paper. 

 

 

 

So, here’s a close up of the bird cage……really like this die.  I cut it out in Kraft paper, inked the bird’s body in Broken China and the wing in Peeled Paint.  The cage was spritzed with my Lindy’s Stamp Gang in my Burnished Brass Moon Shadow Mist.  I love the shimmer it has!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Check out these daisy’s!!  Aren’t they just soooo stinkin’ cute!!  And I love the Salty Ocean blue.  It’s one of the spring collection inks……in love!!

 

 

 

 

I’m off to upload this and then add the picture to the challenge thread on FB.  I have a blog post on the Scrapn’ With Flair blog section.  I’ll be debuing the August kit and ladies……you will NOT want to miss this!!  This kit is amazing and I’m sooooo looking forward to playing with it for the month of August!! 

I’m off…..will be back in a bit to post some cards I also made using the July kit……chao for now!

 

Huggss,

Yvonne

  1. Beautiful I must say!!! Love the colors you used and accented with the blue is very effective. Love it.
    Love the bird cage and what you did with it. Looks very rustic….

    • Thank you Sandie!! I loved your work and subscribed to your blog. :). I love getting inspiration from other card makers. This is actually an Art Journal page……soooo new to the whole mixed media Art Journal world and this is only my second page. I appreciate the compliment!

  2. This is beautiful and I have ever heard of Scrappin’ with Flair before so I guess I am learning about yet another company whose products I will now become addicted to! Lol! I adore how you did the birdcage, I don’t have any of these mists and when I see others using them I want some. Some day when it is in the budget. . . Great page and I love both your choice of word and your quote!

I love hearing from you!!
