Outlawz Progressive

Happy Friday! I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Today I have my entry for the Outlawz Progressive Challenge to show you. This month's image is from the sponsor, All Dressed Up. I decided to keep the image uncolored as I wanted to use one of my plaid papers.

Using a yellow cardbase, I adhered a piece of blue and yellow plaid paper. I printed the image onto white paper and then cut it out in a strip as wide as the image and 5.5 inches tall. I adhered the strip to the left of the card and completed the card with a "hugs" die cut that was cut out three times and glued together for a bit of dimension.

The Outlawz Progressive Challenge is fun to play in. There is a different sponsor each month.

A fun fold card

Hello, I am back today with a new card. I have had some interesting happenings since my last post. We have moved again, this time with a bit more permanency. We have purchased a RV lot in Benson, AZ. So while we still live on wheels, this gives us a little space to be able to make personal. Our backyard view is incredible, I will post a pic below. Now back to my card.

Gesso resist

Hello my dear friends, today I have a card to show you that I made following my challenge buddy's instructions. Yes, it was BożenA's turn to choose the topic of our challenge and she chose a gesso resist technique to make a background. She gave me this video as the example. I decided to go with a slimline card for this project as I wanted to include all three fairies on my card.

Touch of Winter

Well the snow is gone and it has warmed up again nicely - so we can live again lol. I recently came across the Altenew Inspiration challenge and I was intrigued by the color palette and the inspiration project done by Nathalie DeSousa. While hers used alcohol inks and I don't have alcohol inks, I used her inspiration to create my watercolor background.

Pears in a vase

Today I am here playing in the Outlawz Progessive Challenge. It is fun to play again from the challenge side. This month the sponsor is Jan's Digistamps and the image is Fall Pears. I had completed my project a few days ago, but my normal stony backdrop for taking the pictures was nowhere to be seen! Yes, we had a decent layer of snow - I had to make a snowman (see pic below). We got quite a lot more snow before my stones returned.

Foiling with a laminator

Today I have a project to show you that has a first attempt for me on it again - the foiled background. I received a laminator as a gift some months back and so I have, as time allows, been trying various designs. Since I don't have a laser printer, I am using the local copy shop to get the laser prints I need. This one the machine's toner seemed to not spread very evenly, but I opted to try it anyway and I really liked the almost distressed look that came out the back of the laminator.


It is time for another challenge between myself and BożenA and our theme is "Travel". It could be any form of travel, both physical or metaphorical. Although I chose the theme this time and I did know what route I wanted to take with it, it took me a while to find some inspiration for how I was going to show what I had in my mind. But it was year end and such times come with many other distractions and so in general, my crafting table was not busy.

Anyway, back to our project. I decided to create another page in my art journal for this one.

Panda with a difference

Hello Blogland! Yes, here I am after quite a long absence. The year-end was quite busy including a change of location for our RV. We decided to do small town for a while. The peace is almost palpable and the silence loud, but we are enjoying it a lot.

Recently I saw that Kris at Imagine That Digistamps had started a progressive challenge. I love her stamps and when I saw this cute panda, I had to join. So here is my make.
