Never Dull Your Sparkle Art Journal Page

Hello,

This is a page from my Doodle Smash for Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #2: Around the House, where you're supposed to use household items in your project...


Here are the items I used...

And this is how I did it...

1. I stamped the lady in black on my page, then on Colonial White cardstock. Colored her with Copic markers and cut it out. Added Glitz Glitter Gel on her dress and set aside to dry.
2. Tore patterned paper and adhered on page.
3. Place bag (that orange bag from mandarin oranges) on page and spray metallic gold ink.
4. Stamped Reversed Punchinella in purple and Sentiment in black.
5. Adhered the cut out lady on page.


The bag gave me this pattern:


6. Using the toilet paper rolls and bottle, I added circles to the page (I used metallic paints and different ink pads).
7. Using the ruler, I stamped black lines on the top...they're supposed to be "strings" for the "paper lanterns".


8. Added paper flowers.
9. Sprayed more gold ink on page.

Lovely Hearts Card

I found The Card Concept not too long ago...haven't played along, yet...until I saw this color combo! I've used teal, red & white before (see card HERE)...but not with the black.


Here's my really simple CAS card:



I used the stamps from the Artbooking Cricut Collection. And some glitter on the flowers.
Tip: The solid heart was stamped using the back side of the flower heart stamp (in black).

Daisy Beautiful Day Card

I made this card based on Unity Stamp Company's sketch and color inspiration...




I stamped Reversed Punchinella in purple and border in dark green.
For the tag: I heat embossed the daisy in clear, watercolored the piece and cut out the tag shape. Then I added to the card front and added the tie.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment in brown, cut out the banner, inked the edges in green and adhered on the card.
Daisy, border and sentiment are from the Kit of the Month: Happiness has no Limit

Challenges:
1. Unity 18: Wish with your Heart
2. SSS: Let's Be Clear
3. Word Art Wednesday Challenge #140: Anything Goes
4. (a new challenge I found) Tag you're It! #1
