Ribbon Dolls

This month, I hosted a ribbon dolls swap in our Paper Traders group.  These dolls were inspired by a project seen on Ten Two Studios.  For this swap, I only needed to make two but they were so cute, I couldn't stop myself and I had to make a couple of extras.  I'm keeping the orange gypsy for myself and her sister in pale pink will be an RAK for someone special.  =)

From the Heart - a color swap

I recently hosted an ATC swap in our Paper Traders group that included a color challenge - pink, brown, & white.  The theme was "From the Heart" in honor of Valentine's Day.  I've been itching to do something with corrogated cardboard and came up with these cute painted hearts.

Follow Your Heart

In our Paper Traders group, we are doing a word prompt journal challenge this year.

For January, the prompt was "Live Simply" and had to include some kind of rubber stamping... here's my page:

This month, the prompt is "Follow Your Heart" and the challenge is to include some hearts on your page... so here's what I came up with:

The lavender is actually a printed napkin layered over the torn text... one of my favorite techniques!

I know my blog posts lately have been sporadic at best.  I really have been working on several things recently so I will try to get them updated here soon to show you.

This past week, I finished my spread for Cathy's tip-in journal in our Paper Traders group.  Her theme is White-on-White so this is what I came up with... let me just say that it was somewhat challenging to place that tulle on the page using gel medium!
