Playin' Along With CAS(E) this Sketch! #113

Howdy All!

I love this Stampin' Up! set called Cheerful Critters! Aren't they just adorable?
I decided to make a few cards because I was having so much fun coloring them with my Blendabilities markers.

My iw2.18.15 Journal Pages

Howdy All!
I am here today with my Inspiration Wednesday Week 3. If you want to see how my pages were created, you need to sign up for Donna Downey's class. It's just $35 for 25 lessons!

 Here is the final result. It is starting to grow on me. I was super sad when I stamped my large butterfly image and it didn't turn out very clean.  I had to let it sit for a couple of days before I could figure out what I was going to do with it.

 After going through my gazillion stamps I decided to stamp the Off The Grid stamp to fill in the missing butterfly parts. It's okay, I guess. Both stamps are Stampin' Up!, as well as the little butterfly in the top left-hand corner. The sentiment stamp is from Unity Stamps and says Collect Moments.
 Here are some close-ups. I just love all the texture!
 Some of the words that I highlighted from the book texts.
 I had a hard time finding words or phrases to highlight, but I am please with the technique results.
 This word got covered up with the molding paste, it says 'enjoyable.'
I think this is my favorite part. I love how the strings really grabbed the teal wash and I like the use of the washi tape.
Welp, that's all for now! Thanks a bunch for stoppin' by. I hope to see you here again soon!

Hugs,
Sandy

My iw2.04.15 Journal Pages

Howdy All!
I am here today with my Inspiration Wednesday Week 3. If you want to see how my pages were created, you need to sign up for Donna Downey's class. It's just $35 for 25 lessons!

Here is my finished piece. I am still not 100% in love with it, but the process was intriguing and fun.


It took me over a week to finish the last part of it. I just kept looking at what I had and I was not liking it.
 

 I did not have some of the supplies that Donna used in her piece so I had to use substitutes. I would love to purchase all of the wonderful products that she has, but it is good to be challenged to use what I already have.


I was thinking about what quote I wanted to add to my pages and these two fit perfectly. 


 As other students were posting their beautiful artwork on fb I was feeling inadequate as an artist. Silly, I know. So I got up this morning knowing that I did not have to go to work and determined to finish it!


I watched the lesson again (for about the 10th time) and I just did it! I am all smiles now for sure. I am looking forward to seeing what the next iw 2015 lesson will bring!

Thanks a bunch for stoppin' by. I hope to see you again real soon!

Hugs, 
Sandy
