Happy Thursday. This past weekend I decided to try and get ahead of my project life and create the following week's page.  With the new Imaginisce Welcome Spring line and a little help from Creative Scrappers Sketch I created this double page layout. I absolutely love journaling cards, with this line. I love the mix of darker and light spring colors. For my page I loved the navy and forest green. Well I have to cut today's post short as Sheila is enabling my love of paper with a 40% sale!

Have a great Easter Weekend.

Tim Holtz Distress Paints- do you need them? Of course!!!

I have started collecting (no surprise) the Tim Holtz Distress Paints. 
I have a love affair with paint going back to the first time a paint brush was put in my hand. It was my favourite time at school, at home…anytime I could paint. Except walls. I don't enjoy that. 

These paints have a gorgeous creamy texture that reacts with water in a very cool way. And they can be used in conjunction with the other distress products. Very cool. 

Thank you Lord Tim of Holtz for adding more to my list of must haves….
now where is my art journal so I can get crackin'!

Happy Crafting, Andrea

Clean and simple thinking of you!

Happy Friday!! Time flies when you are having fun......so many things I wanna do and try out with so little time....sometimes it's so simple......like this card. Using the negative of the Memory Box die on an oval and  paired up with a sentiment and designer paper. Of course, the Viva pearls have to be added, lol!
You can do this technique with a lot of other dies too.
