You're A Wild One Layout and Other Crafty Stuff!

Hi! I hope you're having a wonderful week! It's back to being quite chilly here and we've gotten more snow, so a good reason to stay inside and get crafty ;) Saturday I went to a friend's house with my sis and friend and lots of other crafty gals and we took a class from Sherry Telle, who is a talented artist who taught an alcohol ink painting class using Pinata Inks, Yupo paper and tiles. It was so fun to watch her create and then to get to try out our own styles using her supplies. With just a few supplies we were able to create beautiful mini works of art!

The Yupo paper is such a great surface to play on, but you do never know what you'll get as it dries! That's half the fun of it I think!

I didn't even get too inky! A couple green fingers, but that's ok ;)

My sister, Jann is a natural and created gorgeous samples! She framed three of hers in a frame, one above the other, and they looked amazing.

One of my crafty besties, Laura, is so creative as well - it was inspiring just sitting beside these girls. And you can see Sherry working hard at the end of the table. This studio space is in my friend, Mary's basement! Can you imagine having your whole basement as a craft room - it's incredible 💗

The Pinata Inks are so vivid - I even brought the plastic plate home!

I also wanted to share this cute layout I created for the SpiegelMom Scraps Instagram Feed last week! Our theme this month is Love and Cutfiles, so I played around with some Cricut cuts in Design Space that I used with my Cricut Explore as well as some FREE cutfiles from the SMS shop! I used the January Sketch from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Sketchy Challenge. Each month they have a new sketch to inspire you to create, as well as a gallery full of amazing layouts from other scrapbookers. Be sure to check out all the details on this fun layout over on IG!
