Gelatos, Gelatos, Gelatos

Good Morning Everyone,

Want to share with you my Art Journaling Page that I taught this past Friday night. Lori and I take turns teaching the class. We show how to use products, techniques and to have fun when working in your Art Journal. This week I chose to go over Gelatos. Those wonderful  Gelatos. We used the Gelatos for our background, used them with stencils and then again with embossing paste. I think we did a total of seven layers. If you want to get in to Art Journaling this is the class for you. Hope to see you out at one of our classes. All you need is an Art Journaling book and we supply the rest. 

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

More Art Journalling Awesomeness!

Andrea here today sharing another of my friend Michelle's art journal. She takes the classes at SGD with Lori and Kim and always comes away so inspired. 

Take this page for example. The panda is something her daughter made for her with string when she was about 6 years old. She is 13 now. Michelle has been hanging onto it wanting to preserve it but not sure how. She was inspired to make a backdrop for her panda in her art journal. 

She used a bamboo stencil and embossing paste to get started. You could also use THESE dies from Memory box. She painstakingly coloured them and added leaves from a spellbinders die. She then used an older Tim Holtz strip die for a cobblestone path and modified it to make her stones. 

All your hard work is amazing Michelle! I hope you are inspired by her too!

Cheers, Andrea

Quick and simple

Happy Friday! I did not have a lot of time to make a card for sharing so I made a quick and easy one!
I took a piece of watercolour paper ( 2 3/4x4) and scribbled some orange and red gelatos on it. Then I sprayed water on the paper and blended it out with my fingers...once it was dry I sprayed some sunshine Dylysions over it. Once that was dry, I stamped the flowers (Penny Black) and the sentiment with black versafine and heat embossed it with black embossing powder. I added a white mat and some score lines on the bottom, it is really hard to see in the picture but I added 2 horizontal score lines and a whole bunch of vertical ones.
                                         Hope you like it, till next time, Anja

Why I love to head to SGD crops

Morning, Lynn here sharing one of the layouts I created at the SGD 12 hour crop this past weekend. 

 A few reasons I love these crops! People!!! It is so nice to sit down with like minded crafters and enjoy the process of creativity. I might have only gotten two layouts done. But it is so energizing seeing all the ladies create. The snacks I love the snacks! The door prizes! Having access to the whole store. 

For this layout I used paper from the BoBunny Altitude collection (truly one of my favorites). 

Last week in one of The Ten Daily Sales Items I ordered one of these fabulous stencils by Prima. 

As I worked away at my layout I need a little something more and being at the store so very easy to pick up extra supplies. 

Love these Stars 

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great end of the week! 

P.S Our Next 12 hour crop is in March! We also have daily crops :)
