Delight in Life 42

Mona Pendleton | Friday, January 24, 2014 @ 11:52 PM | , , , , ,

Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! I'm so happy that I had a chance to play around and create another page in my art journal for The Documented Life Project. Week's two theme was to incorporate a photo of yourself in your journal.  
I created the background with a variety of stamps from my stash ~ some dating back to 2007 ~ along with water color crayons. For a little extra design, I used the Petal Circles stencil.
I also made a very clean and simple birthday card for my Great Niece, Madison who will be turning 12 soon. 
I stamped a trio of fun balloons from Heart Balloons on a Pierced Rectangle die cut using the following inks: Cotton Candy, Sno Cone and Orange Fizz.
For color inspiration for both projects, I joined along with the colour me challenge:
and for the card sketch inspiration, I joined along with the CAS(E) this sketch challenge:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you are having a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
