I am a Guest Designer over at Crafty Boots Challenges where the challenge is Anything But A Card..
I was excited to be asked to be a guest designer and of course I loved that it's Anything But A Card.. I like those types of challenges. Thank you Crafty Boots for having me.
I hope you head over to Crafty Boots and enter your card. You could be the next Guest Designer / winner
This is my Anything But A Card project. I needed another journal page for October so this was my chance to make one. When I have my journal I have the month tabs and then the calendar and more pages.. Well right on top of the month tab is where this goes. So when I go to my journal I see the inspiration - fun pages.
I finally used those Tim Holtz crazy birds. I have had them for awhile but seem to never have time to use them. I took my chance this time. I used water color paper and laid down some inks and spritzed with water then I laid the water color paper in the inks. I dried the paper then laid it gently down in spots till I got the bright colorful background I wanted. I love doing this.. (I also love there are two sides of the paper.. the first one was a muddy mess) After I got what I wanted I dried it. I then die cut the stamped birds and colored them in copics. I was then thinking what sentiment do I want. I looked in my inspirational book (one I write in) and didn't see anything. So went to my stamps and found this sentiment from Verve Stamps. Well it was too small so I went to the computer and printed it out and then cut each word out. I then added My Favorite Things music notes. I layered it on some black card stock (to hide the muddy mess on the other side) and laminated the page with my Zyron. I have a hole punch that fits the binders I have so punched it and added to a journal. I am loving this page and the way it came out.
I hope I have inspired you to make a journal page or some project that is Anything But A Card and head over to Crafty Boots Challenge and play along.
Thank you Crafty Boots
