Creative Warriors Inspiration # 13

Time for my next project to inspire you, which is using the Fashionista Wallpaper pack by Michelle Grant.
 

I wiped off the paint from my alpha stencils from a project a few days ago onto the next page in my journal and then thought it would be a great background for this one of Michelle's girls.

I added some contrast by stamping the numbers using stormy sky with my Scrap FX stamp and then adding paint flicks to grunge it up more.

I added a saying by Art by Marlene.

I decided to not overthink it and I think it turned out great.

Don't forget to share with us any of your projects over on the Michelle's Creative Warriors Facebook group, we'd love to see them.

Until next time, keep chasing white unicorns!

Through the Looking Glass

Have you entered this month's Customer Challenge over at Gecko Galz yet?
The theme is Through the Looking Glass.

This month I decorated my Monthly Planner for my project to inspire you using the  by Gecko Galz. LOL, I am trying to be more organised this year.....wish me luck!



I may have gotten carried away with my stenciling......down the rabbit hole I went!

My gorgeous Alice & Mad Hatter image is from the Alice's Travels to Wonderland pdf.
My washi strips are from a background by Gecko Galz in a DT kit I got.

Super fun to jazz up a dull boring page! 

I hope I have inspired you, and now it's your turn to show me what you can do this month - you have until the 29th to get your entry blogged and onto the blog page. Why not try an image from the Newsletter freebies as well.
It really is worth the try to have some fun and maybe win $25 to spend in the store along your way!

Until next time, keep chasing white unicorns!

Creative Warriors Inspiration # 12

Time for my next project to inspire you, which is a Mash Up of  Michelle Grant's Seeker and Peace packs along with Elisa Ablett's Embrace Change pack.

 

I loved using the black and white background piece from Elisa's pack with the girl from Michelle's as well as the saying from the other one of Michelle's packs. I decided to keep the left page completely black and white and painted the black border to do this. I also had the black border spill over to the right page.

Using Elisa's Butterfly girl, I went with the rainbow colours and used a FX Scrap stencil to create the first part of my background. Then I used the extra acyclic paint to continue the rainbow, even though you don't see much of it. 

Once dry, I adhered my girl and used paint pens to colour her dress, hair and butterflies. 
I used pencils to colour her neck and face. Lastly going over some areas with my black paint pen and adding white paint pen in her eyes and on my butterfly.

Clarity is my word for 2023 and I think the girl on the left, once she has that clarity, brings colour and meaning back into her life. Here's to 2023 being a much better and brighter year for all of us!

Don't forget to share with us any of your projects over on the Michelle's Creative Warriors Facebook group, we'd love to see them.

Just Journal January 2023 - Day 7

Day 7 prompt for Just Journal : Layers.


I  got my Your Creative Studio subscription boxes out and used some post it notes to create my main background. 
Then I created my first ever Snippet Strip! I layered up some scraps off my table and added some beautiful mixed media circles that were gifted to me in a ATC Swap. I got the sewing machine out and stitched down the centre, and then adhered to my page.

I think it fits the prompt perfectly!

Until next time, keep chasing white unicorns!

Just Journal January 2023 - Day 6

Day 6 prompt for Just Journal : Envelope.



I made my envelope using a page in my Stamperia Alice paper pack.
LOL, I haven't used my envelope punch board in a few years, so naturally buggered it, but as luck would have it, it was too big anyway, so a bit of trimming and second time perfect.
I used one of the offcuts to make my bellyband for the envelope to stay on the page. 
And again, lucky that the punched tag piece actually acts as a clasp for the envelope when sitting in the band.
I also cut out some of the cards from the same Alice Paper pack and popped in my envelope.

Until next time, keep chasing white unicorns!

Just Journal January 2023 - Day 5

Day 5 prompt for Just Journal : Loaded.


I had fun creating my loaded page!
First I adhered a napkin on my page for my main background. This is from one of my Your Creative Studio Subscription boxes. Also from there, I added some paper, a tag and ticket.
My Latte spot tuck and Coffee pocket are using a digital paper by Lilli Rain Designs called Vintage Coffee Papers Set 1. 
I got the sewing machine out and stitched the sides of my Coffee pocket and then added a ticket and a clip with a lovely flower from Ephemoire to bring it all together.

Love it, and using up more of my stash which is my aim this year!

Until next time, keep chasing white unicorns!
