Trying to Catch Up

I’m so behind on things.  Part of the reason is that I’ve not been feeling well for the past 2 months(mostly severe allergies).  And another reason is that I have to have a costume done for my friend to wear to the renaissance festival this weekend!(I’ll be going dressed up, too)

So, I’m sorry, but I’m going to cram several things into this post.

First off, I have the privilege of being the Guest Designer this month on Smeared and Smudged.  I even have my own challenge for the month there.  You should totally check it out and play along! *wink wink nudge nudge*  It’s a color challenge.  Here’s the card I made for it…

Paper from Crafty Chaos Designs and DCWV.  Tree image from The Graphics Fairy.  Grumpie stamp and winged heart stamp from Smeared Ink.

Next, I never got around to posting last week’s journal page, so here that is…

The challenge was Bloom and Grow(they featured this page on this week’s posting, woo hoo!)

The stamp was a $1 Studio G stamp.

And here’s a page my 7-yr-old daughter made to go along with the challenge…

And that brings me to this week’s journal page.  This week’s challenge was to use watercolors, or similar looking techniques.

I used watercolor paints on sticky back canvas, and then applied those to my page.  The awesome stamp is from Smeared Ink.(colored with my Copics, and a little sparkle added)  The words are song lyrics from Your Betrayal by Bullet For My Valentine.  I actually got to see them and meet them earlier this year! *swoon*

Close up…

And here’s the page my daughter made for this week…

And I think that’s all I’ll try to squeeze in…for now.;)

Thanks for looking!

Your daughter is very talented. It's very obvious she inherited that from you.

Both of your journal pages are fantastic.
