Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Laurie's turn to host our Paper Players Challenge this week and she has a great sketch for us: I decided that I wanted to play with texture on the two background pieces and pulled out some Altenew woodgrain papers that I got quite a while ago. The one at the bottom is a much lighter weight than the vanilla one at the bottom. I know that the set I used is called Spring Daisy, but I thought it would work really well to color it with fall colors and the woodgrain seemed to... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a challenge that should be right up my alley!

Hi Everyone. So, I did warn you that I was obsessed with this stamp! I have had such fun playing with it this weeked. I have colored it with Copics; colored it with pencils; watercolored it and overall, just had tremendous fun with it! I saw this great color challenge across at the Altenew challenge for August. It's a rich collection of emerald and bronze - gorgeous! I decided I wasn't going to go with florals for this.... I mean... who could compete with Erum's stunning floral card! So, I took a decidedly different direction and thought these colors would... Read more →
