My projects:

First a couple of cards!

I used the black gesso with the damask stencil to create the background on the first card. I sprinkled some art glitter on the wet gesso to give it a touch of sparkle!  When it was done, it looked like a condolence or apology card, so I went with it!

The second is a "hello" card, I used an old Prima mask with some Distress ink on the Bingo card to pop it, then piled on the findings!

Both cards were cut with the Cameo.

On this page, I rolled back the edges of the layers of paper to give it dimension without adding bulky embellies. Then I tucked the picture into the empty space.

I randomly painted the layout with the Wild Honey Silk.

This months sketch is so fabulous!

This is an old picture of myself and my husband, Kelly.

I painted the swirls with the Wild Honey then doodled some "stitching"...busting out the OLD techniques! 

On the title stickers, I covered them with Dusty Attic Crackle Varnish then, while still wet, sprinkled some glitter on them!

I hope you enjoy!
