April showers are here! It sounded like a fun challenge-so
I grabbed my gelli plate and had some fun layering paint and stencils.
The mixed Media April challenge #11 is about April showers & May flowers.

Mother's Day is coming up and I have been making cards like crazy.
I love challenges too, so combining both seems like a no-brainer!
Really Reasonable Ribbon's challenge is Wings-see my Adorable Angels
Mojo Monday #392 has awesome sketches.
This is the result:
Below is a closeup showing more details. I made my font in Photoshop.

Unity Stamps are some of my favorites.
I wanted to play along with their challenge this month.
They give you 3 options-a color challenge, a sketch, or a layout.
I started with the color challenge-that's where the turquoise/aqua colors came from.
I couldn't seem to get the coral colors incorporated-so I switched over to the sketch.
I turned it up-can you tell?
I stamped and heat embossed down the center of white cardstock with one of their background stamps.
I stamped the flowers on a piece of specialty card stock and colored in with distress inks and a paint brush. I love the water color effect.
Add a sentiment, some ribbon and pearls to finish it off.

Journaling has become a great way for me to document my bible study time.
The pictures you can get from Altered Pages Collage sheets really tie in with what I'm trying to design.
I've used 1456D Angel Voices and 524D Holy Cards.

I'm still loving my gelli plate!
I've used Papercrafting Challenge #93 as my inspiration point.
The colors in the magazine cover just screamed SPRING!
I grabbed my gelli plate! See my video for the tutorial.

Really Reasonable Reason's challenge #114 is bright-spring colors.
You can't help but use those colors when doing an Easter card.
I've colored my images with colored pencils.
Added dark purple ribbon from RRR.
Flowers from Wild Orchid flowers.
I love this card! It was a special order for a mother of an 11 yr old girl.
She loved it!
I hope you and your family have a great Easter. Celebrating Christ's birth and resurrection is what it's all about.

Are you wondering how I got this cool marbling effect on this 5x7 canvas board???
Wonder no more!!
You can purchase DecoArt products -www.decoart.com
I put it right back into my mixture and kept pulling papers thru until it was pretty grungy looking.
I stenciled the letters on with DecoArt Whimsical Delight letters and Americana black acrylic paint.
Give it a go yourself! Experiment with different colors. You can also use inks.

I'm still decorating the numerous gelli plate pages I designed!
I combined a muse stamp set-Dragonfly dreams and Kunze German scrap.
I think it turned out pretty sweet!
I embossed the dragonfly in black and then rubbed DecoArt Metallic Wax in blue over top and around the edges. Then rubbed green wax around the rest of the white part.
Attached the German Scrap with glue.

I've already posted today, but I also had to participate in Unity Stamps
I love my Unity Stamps.
I'm attending a craft show tomorrow. Finishing up the several gelli prints I've created in the last week. The smoothness of the Americana Paint that I used on my prints allowed me to stamp right over it. Turned out beautiful!
This stamp set is called A Friend Loveth.
Didn't need to add much of anything else-looks FAB even if I say myself!!
