Hi everyone, today I would like to share a scrapbook layout using 5 Viva Las VegaStamps! ! I know I said I was doing project life my way but I also
did a regular layout. Yeah I'm a rebel like that! haha I had a bunch of
pics of the hubs and I and decided to do a layout on us and how many
years we have been together. I had a lot of fun making this layout using some pictures that I had of the hubs and I.
What I love about stamps is that if you don't have the right embellishment you can custom make your own! I used the Banksy painter (love this guy!!)
wanted to make it look like the banksy painter had paint dripping from
his brush so I sprayed different colors of Glimmer Mists on and let them
drip and then dry, and then I glued the banksy painter onto the page.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my layout and until next time,
As promised here is a 2 page project life spread I did about the Black Sabbath concert that the hubs and I went to. It was amazing!!! Ozzy still has an amazing voice and they put on an awesome show!! I love that I was able to fit so many pictures in this spread and the left side I used a pocket page and then I just used a regular 12 x 12 piece of cardstock (regular scrap page) because I had a 5 x 7 picture that I didn't want to cut up to fit into the pockets.
and here is the left page
and the right side
I will have to see if they have project life pages that have the option of having a 5 x 7 pocket. Thanks for stopping by!
Hi there, today I would like to talk about the book called The New Colored Pencil by Kristy Ann Kutch. I love using watercolor pencils when making my ATC's, art journaling and scrapping and dream of someday being able to produce the gorgeous art that Kristy does in this book.
Kristy talks about applying and lifting colored pencils, creating and enhancing textures with colored pencils, compatible surfaces for waxy colored pencils (I would love to try this!!), getting the most out of color, combining color drawing media and much, much more. The art in this book is gorgeous and she has many examples on how to create the different effects that she shows. I would have never believed what could be accomplished using pencils, it's awe inspiring!
Here is a clip of her on Youtube showing her technique of sketching pine trees
and if you go here you will see how a simple line drawing using an HB pencil becomes a gorgeous
8 x 10 work of art!
This is one of my favorite colored pencil works of Kristy's:
Doesn't that make you want to bust out your pencils and make some art?? Kristy Kutch's book The New Colored Pencil (Watson-Guptill

I loved making this ATC card for the Take a word challenge blog using the super cool Banksy stamp and chevron stamp by Viva Las VegaStamps! The challenge was "silhouettes" and I love this Banksy silhouette of the little girl reaching for her balloon. I used alot of inks, stamps and even rub ons for make this ATC:
As you may remember we had to say goodbye to our beloved Skyler in December so I wanted to do a project life page dedicated to him. I chose soft pastels because that was Skyler's personality, he was such a sweet boy. We were lucky to have been able to share our lives with him for 11 years and he was 16 when he got put to sleep. I still miss him EVERY DAY.
