Born To Run... 55

Mona Pendleton | Friday, November 23, 2012 @ 2:31 AM | , , , ,

Hi there! To all those who celebrated Thanksgiving, I hope you had a wonderful holiday celebration with your family, friends and loved ones! We had a great holiday. Scott and I had completed about 90% of our holiday dinner preparation Wednesday night so we had time to start our Thanksgiving day off with a mountain hike then Tina came over and her and I took a bike ride. Jerry and April joined us for dinner :)

I have been playing around with modeling paste and various texture tools and created this page in my art journal featuring my sweet furry little four legged friend, Gretchen :) For the title, I used a stamp from Die-namics Girly Graphic Tee Die & Stamp Set and the white dots were stamped using LJD Darling Dots.




Once I felt a little more comfortable with the products, I made a layout featuring a photo of April and Jerry that was taken while on a recent trip to San Francisco.
There's just something about the Melissa Frances resin embellishments that I love. For a more aged look, I applied Distress ink.
Using Die-namics Hearts a Plenty, I die cut a few canvas heart embellishments 
For the title, I stamped the Love sentiment from Inspired By Love on a die cut piece made using Die-namics Place Award Ribbon. To create the layered canvas fishtail banner strips, I used Die-namics Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX and Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX:
Shown below is a rose made using Die-namics Layered Rose.
For sketch inspiration, I played along with ScrapFriends Sketch challenge:
and for color inspiration, I played along with 13 arts pl blog:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)
