Hi there! Hope all is well with you! I've been having fun playing with stencils, stamps, texture pastes, paper, etc... again! I'm all over the place with my crafting ~ one day, I feel like making a card for a certain someone or just for fun then the next day, I feel like creating on a much larger scale so I make a 12" x 12" layout or maybe I feel like playing in my art journal or creating a tag. That's what I love about this crazy hobby, it is so versatile and there are so many "things" to create. In my opinion, one can never get bored! :) I'm curious, do you have one type of project that you make or do you mix it up too?
With that being said, today I have a layout to share featuring a photo of myself that was taken while hiking one of our favorite hiking trails in our backyard.
For the background, I started with a gorgeous piece of 7 Dots Studio paper then added texture using the Brick Wall stencil along with some fiber paste. Once dry, I applied various colored inks and sprays.
I layered lots of distressed strips of 7 Dots Studio paper then added a variety of blossoms from my stash including a beautiful hand crocheted blossom made by my sweet sister Tina:
After everything was stitched in place and dry, I randomly stamped the chicken wire image from Distressed Background Blocks:For theme inspiration, I joined along with the 7 Dots Studio October challenge which is to create a project focusing on "Something Done for Yourself" which for me is hiking. Of course I enjoy spending time with my sweet husband ~ Scott and dear sister ~Tina hiking, biking and lifting weights at the gym BUT when it comes down to it, I do it for myself :) It makes me not only feel good, strong and healthy but allows me to fit in my clothes :)
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the Sketchabilities sketch challenge:
Many thanks for visiting ~ I hope you enjoyed my layout.
Be Sweet ;)
