This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Lots of layers and bits! ;-)

General Tags - BoBunny Aryia's Collection

Hello Everyone

I'm back again today, with some more tags! ;-)
I used the same paint resist techniques on these tags and also used the gorgeous Aryia's Collection from BoBunny.

I used Pentart Cream Acrylic paint and stencil on the first tag to resist a distress stain and Pentart White Acrylic paint and stencil to resist on the second tag.

Here's close-ups of the tags.

and here's the second one.

These little pretties can be used for any occasion and are really great to have on hand! ;-)

Thanks so ,much for stopping by today!
I really appreciate the visits!
Have a super day!

General Tag - Tim Holtz and Penelope Dee

Hello Everyone

I have been on a tag frenzy lately and I have had so much fun, playing and experimenting.

So here's my latest one.

I used the Penelope Dee poppy stamp, along with lots of Tim Holtz goodies and stamps.

The background was made with distress paint, which I dabbed over the wood stencil. Then I rubbed over with distress stains and inks.
The paint resists the stains and inks and makes for a gorgeous layer.
Lastly I used my flower/swirl stamp and created another layer on the background.

The poppies were stamped and coloured with acrylic paint and a sponge.
Then I fussy cut them all.
They really pop off the background.

Anyways...thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a fabulous day!

Art Journal Page - BoBunny Stamps

Hello Everyone

I hope that you are having a super day!
My day is almost finished and I am feeling quite tired this evening!
Anyways...I hope to have an early one.

I really had fun with an art journal page, using some gorgeous paints and also some fabulous stamps from BoBunny.

Here's the page.

I really loved the vibrant colours.  The new BoBunny stamps are amazing too.

I heat embossed the butterflies and then coloured then with the same paints and then fussy cut them.

I found this "word" sentiment on Pinterest and I really did want to use it and something that I want to aspire to.  It's so fabulous.

a woman who emphasizes a life of passion, expressed through personal style, leisurely pastimes, charm, and cultivation of life's pleasures ...

Here are the gorgeous BoBunny stamps.

I really had fun with this page and I really like the vibrant colours.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I really appreciate the visit.
Have a super day!
