Thank you to my GIRLFRIENDS…

Thank you to my GIRLFRIENDS…

It’s challenge time over on the Mixing It Up Everyday Facebook group.  My friend Sandee is the creator of this page and we do have allot of fun.  I actually won the October challenge and won a gift certificate to Stampendous.  I was pretty excited about that!  This month’s challenge is to do a project around the theme of being thankful.  I decided to take a bit of a different twist to the thankful theme…..I have some napkins I’ve been wanting to try on a page for some time and this just seemed to be the time…..and the quote just sort of fit in to this month’s theme…..well, at least in my mind it did.  ;o)

I used my up cycled encyclopedia again for this double page journal page.  I’m seriously loving this book. I started out by putting a light wash over the pages using my Lindy’s Stamp Gang Flat Shot from the Under the Boardwalk collection called Pop Rock Purple.  I then put a light coat of the Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso over as it’s a thinner Gesso and works very well for a wash look.  I took my Faber Castell PITT artist big brush pen in Cold Grey III and one of my Stampers Anonymous background stamps from the Graph & Croc set and randomly stamped on both pages.  I really like the subtle look the Cold Grey pen gives to the background stamps.  I then took my napkin and adhered it to the pages using my Faber Castell Gel Medium.

Next I took my Faber Castell Whipped Spackle and my  homemade brick stencil and my Tim Holtz Dot Fade stencil and applied it randomly to the page.  I shaded the bricks in and around the napkin pieces with my Stabilo All pencil and blended it out.

Added my quote using my Signo white gel pen, some Faber Castell Gelato in black around the edges of the pages and done!

Thank you for the challenges Sandee and for keeping the group in order…..or trying to at least!

Thank you also for dropping in and I look forward to seeing you next time as well.  Please feel free to leave me any comments.  Enjoy your day!

Huggss,

Yvonne.

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......
