Gonna Let Loose, A Page to Peep, and the Rest of the Goodies

Well, how's that for a title?! Hey Friends.

Life took a REAL crazy turn around here and while my mind has been wanting to blog - it was preoccupied with some unforeseen nonsense (I'd have stronger words, but I've used up my allotment for years in the past days!!! I'm not proud).  So, things are a bit behind - but that's good news for you because I'm going to be having some splendid things going on here - giveaways, a tutorial or two, some eye candy, and one more supa' exciting thing to share!  Starting tomorrow it shall be all about me letting loose, taking time to craft, and enjoying what makes me smile - my family of course.

Ready for a page to peep??  

I ran out of time to do Brit's sketch at Skissedilla - before I knew it my first DT reveal was up and the rest is a blur - for the most part its been a good blur - but I had this page now taunting me - I know myself - I won't finish if it sits too long - I finished.  Check it:
  Here's Brit's sketch:
I rotated the sketch 90 degrees for my page and of course I scrap 8.5x11 so I adjusted a bit for that.

I did a ton of stamping on this LO - discovered I adore stamping on cork - its seriously cool people! Papers are back in the day Sassafras and a few bits of Echo Park.  Don't you just love that lil' bicycle stamp? - Maya Road -  Doily bit is from The Chip Chop Shop, my fav Etsy to pick these up - there's a sale going on right now too - just sayin'. Stenciled the background with ink - Studio Calico stencil - used negative of heart punch for a stencil.
Close up of the title.  I wish you could see the dimensional glaze I put on some of the hearts, but alas it doesn't shine through.
Sigh...I love clouds - been wonderfully blessed to lazily lay and look at them some this week - created the background clouds with a The Crafter's Workshop cloud stencil - outlined with NeoColor II and added some water to blend a bit - fussy cut popped up clouds, added dimensional glaze and outlined - stamped the sun on cork with paint and ink - added colored gel medium to center - sprinkled with glass beads
Are you still with me??  I hope you've made it because now you get to see the goods I'll be shipping out, along with a canvas creation, to one lucky winner.  You can go here to see the canvases.  Be sure to leave a comment (and share which canvas is a fav) on any recent post to be entered - all comments received before midnight on the 22nd will be counted.  I'll have a winner on Friday with more loot to vie for coming this weekend!!!  YAY!   International peeps welcome!

Liquitex Coarse Gel - some mesh (looks so cool on LOs) - a mini journal - 3 fabric roses rolled with love by moi - a Smash journal tablet - 2 wooden spools wrapped in baker's twine - Smash sticky notes and envelopes - How's that??
Have relaxing nights my friends, see you tomorrow.

  4. I really like the rainbow one but all three are great! THANK YOU for the FANTASTIC ti to spray the back of the paper!! It worked!! SO happyyyyy! :)

    1. Ah, you have good taste my friend, the rainbow canvas is my fav as well. I'm so happy the spray tip worked for you!!!
