Pastel Papers, Silk Flowers and Stamps!

Hello friends and welcome to my very first blog post! At the heart of every scrapbooking page I create is a photo that is important to me. Now that I've acquired a phone with a camera that is superior to my ancient point-and-shoot, I can snap a picture anywhere, anytime. Selfies have become a way of life. This particular photo was taken on my patio where I take many selfies on the days that my makeup turns out nice. (Come on ladies, you know you get excited when your winged eyeliner is on point!) On this particular day my pretty white cat Europa joined me outside and after many attempts, I was able to snap this fun pic of us.

Hello friends and welcome to my very first blog post!

At the heart of every scrapbooking page I create is a photo that is important to me. Now that I've acquired a phone with a camera that is superior to my ancient point-and-shoot, I can snap a picture anywhere, anytime. Selfies have become a way of life.

This particular photo was taken on my patio where I take many selfies on the days that my makeup turns out nice. (Come on ladies, you know you get excited when your winged eyeliner is on point!) On this particular day my pretty white cat Europa joined me outside and after many attempts, I was able to snap this fun pic of us.

I started with basic white card stock and used watered down acrylics to paint the background since I didn't have actual watercolors on hand. The water from the paints will war the paper so I recommend letting the page dry completely and then leaving several heavy books on it over night to flatten it out.

The mason jar detail was created with a rubber stamp and blue vellum. I placed silk flowers below the vellum to make it look like the jar was full. Puttingfew flowers on the top gave me a way to hide the adhesive that is mounting the vellum to the background.

This page was inspired by Color, Story, Inspiration's 215th case file. I love the quirky illustration and pastel color scheme.

Evidence Used:

Testimony Used:

  • Journal in wavy lines (I used a series of circle stencils to give me a template for my journaling)

I used the Studio Challenges' October 9th Sketch.

For the title, I used a sticker from Paper Studio's Cat Sayings sticker sheet and paw print embellishments are Kitty Puffy stickers by Paper House. The paper kite is from the Song of Spring pack by Paper Embellishments.
