But for me this challenge was all about the "Words" I love the sentiment "One Kind word can change someone's entire day".

Be Bold Art Journal Page

Hello All!

Today it is my turn to share & hopefully inspire you over on the Visible Image! So I thought I would play a bit in my Art Journal, which really is an old book that I picked up at a resale shop. The book is so old the pages are discolored and they easily tear. But its the perfect size and as a bonus the text makes a great background. 

Anyhow...Back to my page after a quick layer of gesso, a few dabs of paint and a bit of stamping this page came together in a flash and it was the perfect mojo pick me up!

Blue Fern Studios -Spring Inspiration from Lanette with a Video too!

Hello All!

Here in Michigan we are desperately waiting for Spring to arrive. It's been a winter and I am ready for a spring green yard. So I thought  the Spring Parade Collection was perfect for me to create with this month. 


You can see how I created this layout start to finish over on the Blue Fern YouTube Channel: 


Here are just a few details of my layout...


I love the way the Chipboard looks with Ivory & Pearl Embossing Powder.


A super sweet fussy cut bunny...


Lots of Seedling & Glitter to really make these lovely blooms shine.



For my second layout, I continued the Spring fun but this time I played with the Attic Charm Collection...




Just a few details before you hop along...



 A peek at this lovely lace and this sweet little chipboard bunny.


A the bit of frame that I cut away from the bunny worked perfectly with the title.


Here is a good look at all the little extras that make this layout sparkle.
Don't you just love Seedlings & Glitter!

It's my Turn over at Visible Image!

Hello All!

Today it is my turn to share & hopefully inspire you over on the Visible Image Blog and I just had to create something with this Dragonfly. So I decided that I would create a layered tag with him as the star of the show!


 Products Used:  Visible Image Stamp Sets- Imagine Dream InspireDe-Stressed, Ink Splats & Live in the Moment. Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays- Rusty Lantern Lime, Bells of Ireland Green, Green with Envy Green & Luminous Yellow. Art Anthology Sorbet- Cayman & Tink. Ranger- Electric Lime & Caribbean Coast Ink Pads. Versa Mark Black Ink. White Uniball pen. Ranger Glossy Accents. Misc Ribbon. Prima- Watercolor Paper. Wafer-Thin Umbrella Dies.

Now lets take a close look at my tag....


I just love the Dragonfly in the " Live in the Moment Stamp Set" he is absolutely beautiful! So I had to fussy cut him to really make him POP. I also stamped directly on the tag too.



Here you get  better look at the titles that from the "Dream Inspire Imagine Stamp Set" While I love the definitions in this set, I really only wanted the bold titles for this tag. So with just a bit of selective inking I had my bold words.


If you look closely, you will see there really is a lot going on in the background of my tag. I used both the De-Stressed & Ink Splats Background Stamp Sets.
