I am in a busy daze now... but I am happy. I find great fulfillment and joy in my work and all I do. So I tell other "I am happily busy"........ but my body needs a rest now. It is a good thing to pause and just let my old body recharge a little. I have not been scrapping much this week because of Easter Week. But I do have some projects to share.... now... my memory is failing me. did i show this before. haha.. This Mini Album was done in our Made With LOVE DT crop.

Here's a layout based on Bo Bunny Challenge using a sketch they did. Fun.... but I push the arrangement of photos to the corner. Just something different but yet true to my style. I did lots of layering....... I splatter and paint with Teal Glimmer Mist And this new fun product I tried - Golden Mica Flakes --- totally gorgeous!
Hope you have a great Easter Weekend. This has a busy yet fulfilling week. See ya!

Here are some fun ways to use cardstock from Coredinations.
First up is this layout I created using a piece of cardstock. I 'moulded' it to shape like a frame. Yes......... WATER + paper is so much fun! I soaked the entire cardstock in water and then dry it a bit. While it is damp, I put a acrylic block 5x7' and mould it around this block, to form the frame. Next I ink it, distress the edges, splatter some paints and glitter. This is a FUNNNNNN........ FUN technique. Try it!
A fun way to play with it is sanding. But I want to share another way: the breaking down of the layers of fibers of the cardstock. First, wet the tip of the paper. Slowly separate the layers of fibers. I called this "paper wetting techniques" I taught this in my classes many times and people are always amazed!!! You will be able to peel off a bit.... leave it there to show the contrast of shades (pink in this card) Have fun! Paper + water may not be a disaster after all
A layout using the beautiful butterfly embossed cardstock. Sanding it is so much fun!Ok, I hope you had fun with these fun tips.

Happy News!!! I have been invited to be Guest Designer over at Pencil Lines this week. Check out >>> HERE. Go over and leave me some love!!! I am so thrilled when Anna sent me the invitation. I love their sketches. You can join in and use their sketches, which are so versatile. Some techniques: I cut the large butterfly at the left corner and apply a coat of Rock Candy to give it a clear and crackle effect Some misting here and there on the cream cardstock ohhh..... the box pleating.... taught by Susan Stringfellow.... underneath the row of photos.... can you spot it? I apply some white crackle paint too. Hope you like my layout this week. Thanks for dropping by. Have a great week ahead
