Try it on Tuesday - Words and Numbers

Good morning all my creative pals! Today we have a new challenge up at 




Words and Numbers

You can create any project you like for this challenge, as long as we can see some words and numbers! 

I chose to make an art journal spread....


I covered my page in my Dina Wakley journal using Titan Buff acrylic paint! I then used a stencil, TCW # 248S to create some background texture using Quinacridone Nickle Azo Gold acrylic paint. I then got out some older Tim Holtz rub ons, Words and Numbers, and rub these on randomly.  I took a word stamp I have had forever and stamped using archival black inl randomly. I added my skateboard girl, and sentiment, some black splatters.. and voila! Done. 

You have two weeks from today to show us your awesome creations! And do check out what the design team has come up with.. fabulous inspiration!

Keel creating!

Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - #165 - DOGS

Good morning all my snarky buddies! 

This week at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, Edna has brought out the dogs and has challenged us to use a pooch on our projects some way!



I chose to make my card using a stamp set I had to borrow from a pal... as you all know, I don't usually color images like this! (Edna is pushing my boundaries! LOL!) Here he is .... 



I do hope you are all staying cool this summer... and snarky as ever!

Try it on Tuesday - Summertime

Well... it is definitely Summer in Southern Ontario! Record heat and humidity!!! 
A great time to stay inside and play! (or lay by the pool!).

This week at Try it on Tuesday, our challenge for the next 2 weeks is Summertime!

I choose to make some summertime gift card holders. 
I used Carta Bella's Summer Market paper line for these. I never know what to do with those 3"x 4" journal cards, so I added them to the fronts of my card holders! 



And, here is the inside of the front part of the card! It opens from the back for me to write a little note on!


The others are the same! I plan on giving them to a few friends or them to buy a cool drink to refresh from this heat!

Hope you are all having a safe, cool Summer!

Stay creative!
