I am loving the Supplies On Hand Class by May Flaum! 4 days of amazing techniques and ideas for stash busting so far and more to come!! She has a stellar line up of guest design artists, and this will be a class I definitely go back to.
I have so many ideas running around in my head, but I thought I'd start with a Christmas layout. I was so inspired by May's layout using stamps and colouring them in with Dylusions Sprays that I got out my sprays immediately. I had these Christmas Dylusions stamps that I hadn't ever used (gasp!) so that's what I started with.
I loved the look of Ashli Oliver's journalling around the edge of her page. You must check out her blog at http://purplemailbox.blogspot.ca/?m=1 - she is so talented. The green papers were in a 12x12 sheet, which was divided into journalling cards, so I cut them to fit in the photo spots on the Stuck On You Sketches challenge. (See below for sketch)
Everything was already in my stash, and I'm happy to say I discovered new ways to use what I already owned. I flicked the Heidi Swapp silver Color Shine to create droplets and I love the way it looks! I don't know why, but I had never done this before.
I love the way these inks painted on! I just dipped the brush in the bottle and painted directly on the watercolour paper that I had stamped on. I used two green colours to create a bit of shading. I'm thinking it would definitely be a good investment to put these inks in waterbrushes!
I stamped the ornament border and cut each out individually. After threading them with some bakers twine I popped them up to look like they were hanging.
I had so much fun with this layout! I will definitely be using more ideas from this awesome class- so be sure to check back!
