Dollie Daydream Goes East: card 1

I finally made time to print some digistamps from the Dollie Daydream goes East Cd from Polkadoodles. I die cut the colored image and put in on a 10x10cn square card so that the complete card still fits into a plain envelope. Added some flowers and ribbon to finish it off.

Cards from scraps

Sometimes I have so much scraps lying around its time to use those bits and pieces and turn them into cards. I made 4 from pre-colored images and leftovers.

Art journal page: you are stronger

Art journal page from an old book page, masked off with a magazine clipping, added gelatos, watercolor paint and gesso. Stamped background images. Hand written outlined text: " you are stronger than you think you are"

Art journal page: la primavera

Learning Spanish and wanting to create a colorful art journal page resulted in this page. Watercolor on gesso'ed page. Outlined with fineliners and Posca markers. Hand written text.

Art journal page: too old to play?

Using scraps: a pre colored image, a 'silicon' background and a doily.
Hand written text: "you stop playing because you get old, you get old because you stop playing", outlined with metallic fineliners. Background colored with pastel pencils. 

DY-prompt60 #23: circles

Used a Spirograph to create circular shapes with colored fineliners. 
Used a dot mask with distress ink and metallic fineliners to outline the dots. Added some texture paste circles and colored those with acrylic paint.

DY-prompt60: #24: greetings

Background created with my sis' gelli plate. Letters cut and colored with stamping ink. Added stickers with birds and nature because that's what I love most about the place.
