Girlie Grunge Challenge - October

Whew... I am barely making this challenge on time for October. Donna Salazar's Challenge involved a sketch and using the color green. For my layout, I used the Swirlydoos Sept Kit that included Prima's Romance Novel paper line. I am in love with this paper.

So for the challenge, I played with some new products I have bought. I used pink gelatos and Donna Salazar's Jasmine Mixed Media Ink. The jasmine ink was used to soften and frost all my flowers and leaves. For the green part of the challenge, I added green dusty attic botanical swirls with a little jasmine ink added to it. I also smeared a little jasmine ink to the black pattern paper. Lastly, I added a little green ink (bundle sage distress ink) to my journal strips.

Happy Halloween

Wow.... This is truly my first project I have created for Halloween. I made this configration box last month for my design team assignment for Scrappy Chic.  The papers used were from my Aug-Sept kit which included Halloween papers from K& Company and Echo Park.

Have a safe and wonderful holiday!

Hmmm.... lately I have been so distracted with life that I didnt feel inspired and felt my creativity went on a vacation. As I filtered through people blog posts, I found an October sketch at Cest Magnifique Kit Club that caught my attention. Since I had an October kit sitting here from 2 places my Scrappy Chic and Swirlydoos I figure why not at least attempt something creative. I decided to enter this piece into the challenge at Cest Magnifique Kit Club and the Heidi Kelley challenge at Swirlydoos. It felt good to have some free time Sunday to scrap freely. I honestly didnt care if it was my best work or not. I just wanted to enjoy creating art.

I will not make this a long post. So, thanks for looking!!
