Christmas Journal July 21, 2022



Have you guys seen the brand new Art Impressions 5543 - Journal Template Die Set? Bonnie Krebs, the Owner/Creator of Art impressions did a tutorial on Facebook that you should check out immediately if you haven't seen it yet, click here! I'm planning on making these journals for my granddaughters for Christmas. It's going to be so fun! Think of all of the possibilities. 

Well Brinley's journal is finished now. Just have to get the gift card to put inside this one. Decided to make the Halloween journal for the Aubrey, the other granddaughter. So much fun! Have you guys seen Kim's floral journal class? Have to make one of those, too. So in love with the journal set!

Ai Watercolor Weekend July 15, 2022



I am still playing around with red, white and blue and decided to use the brand new 5575 - Mailbox, Birdhouse set for my Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend card. Twice a month on the first and third Saturdays, you can find inspiration from the Watercolor Design Team on the Ai blog under the Watercolor Weekend tab. Be sure to check it out! 

To make this card, ink up the birdhouse set with both 565 and 969, stamp it off and then stamp it on your watercolor paper so it's not too dark. Pull the color out of the lines. Use a pencil and a ruler to draw the flag. See Bonnie's tutorial here to make the flag. Use Tombow 555 for the blue parts of the flag, birdhouse and planter. Use the Tombow 856 for the red parts. Ink the foliage from the 5476 Foliage Set 5 with 177 and stamp them in the pots. The bottom flowers are from the same set but you ink the flowers with 565 which is more purple than blue like the 555. Ink the grass from the 4051 Foliage set  under those bottom flowers and pull the color up and below the grass. The red flowers are from the 5009 Mini Flower Set. The sky is 555. Use Dr. Ph Martin's bleed proof white to add the stars to the flag and the dots to the pot. I used a small stylus but you could use a small paint brush. Cut it out using the 5063 A2 Double Stitched Die Set. Hope you give it a try!
