Dreamweaver and Stampendous are playing this week


This is going to be a fun fun week! I get to join my guest design team partnering with my regular design team at Stampendous!!!!!! All week long we are going to bring you the best of stamping and stenciling with some fun and amazing products. There are going to be prizes so you'll want to comment on all the blogs this week to be eligible to win. Details are on the Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils blogs each day for your convenience.


Here's a mixed media journal page from me. In order to be comfortable with all the elements, I created them in layers by doing a Creative Palette monoprint background on deli paper and glued it into my journal binder. There are Dreamweaver embossing paste elements on the background as well, with swirls, flowers and hearts. The Blossom Beauty head is stamped onto white cardstock and cut out around a pencil tracing from the set's coordinating template (really cool). It's then cut out and used to sketch out the hairstyle on more monoprint paper and detailed with black permanent markers. 


This week's Stampendous focus is the Blossom Beauty and the Dreamweaver Stencils team will be bringing us some great projects, too. Now that you've seen my project it's time to move on over to Kristine Reynolds blog for more inspiration! In case you're lost on today's link list you can be rescued by the master list below. Have fun!

  18. Beautiful page, she is really lovely and that background is wonderful. I love the kind of out of focus look from some of the colors/blending contrasted with the stenciled patterns.

    1. Sandi Lou, you can find just about anything on the internet but if you are looking for a way to ease into the style there is a challenge forum on Splitcoaststampers that help someone new step into the techniques of mixed media. We'd love to see you over there! There's no need to have an account on Splitcoaststampers to see the challenges only if you want to post your project for everyone to see.

      Here's the link to the main section of the "Mix-Ability Challenge".
