She Loved New Beginnings... 40

Mona Pendleton | Friday, March 30, 2012 @ 11:00 PM | , , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are having a great weekend! Scott and I both had the day off from work Friday so we went to the movies to see The Hunger Games. It was a good movie but I have to admit, I prefer a good "chick flick" :) I had some "me" time so I made this page in my art journal using a variety of products, many from the Pink Paislee Spring Jubilee collection:
I gave my girl a long braid, (one of the many things I learned from taking Christy Tomlinson's She Art workshop) along with a painted posey:
The butterflies were cut out from a pretty piece of Spring Jubilee patterned paper. For a little texture, I added a few dots of puffy:
I tore a Collage Card from the Pink Paislee Spring Jubilee in half, adhered it to the page then layered ink, paint and rub ons on top of the patterned paper. I used a journaling pen to highlight the preprinted"spring was calling" sentiment:
I incorporated a lot of stamps from the Spring Jubilee including the beautiful butterfly / sentiment shown below on her dress:                                                                                                                                                                                                           
 For color inspiration, I played along with the current Colour Q Challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ hope you have a wonderful weekend! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Pink Paislee Spring Jubilee, Flower stamp and leaves from SU
Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee Spring Jubilee, Vintage Vogue
Ink: too many to list

Yeah! More She-Art!! I adore your page, the long braid is great. I will have to remember that if I ever get my butt into gear and start on my she-art. A long braid would be perfect for my daughter.

This is wonderful!!! Love that girl and her braid!!! I still haven't cracked my stuff open and watched the class...my lovely daughter snitched the speakers to my PC ( yes, it's an old Dell but, still working) and I bought the wrong ones to replace!!! Getting down to the wire and have to find time!! Enough of my troubles, LOL!!! This is wonderful!!! That same DD saw the Hunger Games on Friday and she loved it....I've read the books and heard the books were more dramatic than the movie!!! Love a chick flick too!!!

Lisa S. said...
