Whimsical birds and white space

Whimsical birds and white space

I know!!!  ANOTHER blog post?!  It’s been such a great weekend in my studio and I spent some much-needed ‘therapy’ time down there till the wee hours of the morning.  This room is feeling like my refuge once again and it feels great.

It’s another Sunday’s with Sandee over on the Frosted Designs blog!  This weeks page is awesome and she challenges us to leave some white space!  Gasp!!  Sandee and I were just talking the other day about how we each struggle with white space on our pages and the urge to fill it all in.  As I honestly couldn’t think of a thing to do on my own, I pretty much just followed along with what Sandee created…..just different colors and I added a few Zendangles.  I did have a lot of fun creating this page though and I think I may continue to challenge myself to continue to incorporate more white space into my projects…..maybe….it could happen!!!  I colored in my bird and my leaves and circles with some watered down Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals.  I love the shimmer these mica powders leave…..soooo yummy!!  Here’s my page for the challenge:



This was a fun page to do.  Head on over to the FD blog to read about this technique.  Check out her YouTube video as well!

Thanks so much for sticking it out with me all weekend!!  I luv you guys.  ❤




About mycraftingtherapyroom

My name is Yvonne Gebauer and I'm a cardmaker and have just entered the amazing world of Mixed Media and am LOVING it!. I'm a wife, a mother to two grown boys, and a grandmother to 5 amazingly beautiful grandchildren which I have to say is really all it's cracked up to be and more. I work full time and am really starting to think that work is getting in the way of life!! I have a large crafting room and I'm my happiest when I have a group of friends get together in this room and just have a blast. Every once in a while we actually create something! Or, when I get a chance to have one of my grandchildren over to just let them play and create what they want with what I have in my stash.....which is allot. My craft room is my therapy room of sorts. My place to go and just be......
