Myself, Kim Holmes and Erin Bassett are hositng three days of True Love.
We're creating, right?
I am hosting the day of layouts. (Big surprise, right?)
The point? To use any and all Imaginisce product to create "Love" layouts, cards and projects!
Who needs a dedicated love line? Not us!
OK, I'll admit. I have been wanting to get dirty and get more "artsey".
When I ink, it's bright and bold.
I love and appreciate vintage and distressed, but my first love is COLOR!
I've done this before (it's been too long) where I spray ink heavily on the top of the page to get the colors running down...
I didn't have a box layout around, so I made myself a cheap spray station. :)
In an effort to help the drips down, I "flicked" the page. The cool side affect is that it splattered ink randomly on the page. Neat accident.
I saw some stamping recently that looked like it was done with spray ink.
So I decided to give it a try. I have used the Tattered Angels stencils to "stamp" before, but not my clear stamps (or rubber stamps).
So I grabbed a cookie sheet, sprayed on it, put my stamps in it, and stamped on my layout...
Then, as to not waste my ink. (Yeah, that was why) I thought to dip journaling strips in the leftover ink.
Got my 25 cent heart punch out again and then sewed those punches onto the top of the layout (after I stamped two stamps along the top edge of the layout. Grid and distressed journaling lines.)
The Imaginisce die cuts, I had been saving these fun trees and flowers to use together!
So the picture is from when I first moved back to Iowa in 1998. Jerry and I had just bought a house together, and I was with him at a gig.
It seems like so long ago. And it seems like yesterday. :)
I think looking back, my journaling is confusing. I'll have to write more on the back of the layout. :)
We have known each other for 26 years. We dated for 5-6 years, I moved out of the area, but we were still friends. We always stayed in touch. We reconnected after failed relationships on both our parts, and I moved back to Iowa in 1998. I have been gone several years.
