My biggest highlight of the week is the set we chose to play with - the Blossom Beauty stamps and the matching Cutting Die set. I absolutely love this new collection and the matching dies, they make crafting so much quicker and so much more enjoyable! We also have some fun free hair templates for your Blossom Beauty that you can download here. Both teams have really rocked this set so do check out all the amazing projects shared this week.
Oh and of course - there are prizes, too! There will be three bundles for grabs - and the teaser picture is below. All you have to do is to comment on the posts shared this week as part of the Dream-pendous play. The more you comment, the bigger chance you have of winning!
For my inspiration today I am sharing a calendar journal page. Now, before you ask why it's an August one...
At the beginning of the year I made a resolution (one of many!) to finish all projects I started in the past and never completed. Many moons ago I began creating a calendar where I could keep track of all the birthdays and anniversaries I need to remember about. The inspiration behind it was the 'challenge' started by Kate Crane from The Kathryn Wheel. So far I've done April, June, July and October so I only have a few months left to do...LOL. I chose to make the August page - I suppose I already have summer on my mind!
The background for my page was created with the DecoArt Americana acrylic paints smooshed around on the Creative Palette Monoprinting Plate. To add depth I layered lots of stamping with Mish Mesh, Grunge and Wired stamp plates - these are perfect for mixed media backgrounds.
I also fussy cut some lovely images from a napkin and added them to the page. To add texture the images were covered with Translucent Embossing Paste through sequin waste and sprinkled with a touch of Crystal Micro Glitter.
For the August banner I used some old paint swatch cards stamped with the Vintage Lowercase stamps and pins from the Smash Notes clear set.
The days were punched from Crafty Individual papers.
Additional supplies I used:
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L - Mounting Squares, MyStik® Permanent Strips, Adhesive Sheets
Tsukineko (Imagine Crafts) - Jet Black and Blue Hawaii StazOn Minis, Memento Grape Jelly, Radiant Neons - Electric Blue, Purple and Pink
Staedtler - ergosoft aquarell pencils
Faber- Castell - India Ink PITT Artist Pens
I hope you enjoyed my offering today. There is still more inspiration today for your viewing pleasure so make sure to check out the following:
