Art Journaling

The old blog has been kind of quiet.  I thought I'd post what I made for the April Dylusions Facebook Challenge.  The rules were to use red, blue and stars.  I went big in bold in the art journal, using Dylusions paints.  Thanks for having a look.

How Quickly Time Goes By

I am always amazed at how quickly time goes by.  Take today for example, it's time to post the new challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.  I thought we just did that last week!

Here is Challenge 32: Q is for Quick.  Your challenge is make a card (or tag or ATC) in 10 minutes.

I did put this card together in 10 minutes.  Now I know that you are going to look at this card and think, "But of course you did!"  

 My method:  I had everything selected and ready on my desk.  I cannot decide, locate, and prepare a project in less than 30 minutes.  I will find an item, set it down, and then cannot remember where I put it so I have to find it again.  

After setting the timer on my phone, I used coordinating BoBunny papers, selecting the fairy image.  Cutting papers, inking edges, and sticking them down is quite time consuming.  I used the grids on the light paper to help place the focal point on my card.  I intentionally placed it more to the left, as I thought I would separate "create magic" and place the words by the fairy.  The card looks straight in person, but the photo makes it look crooked.  The ribbon was added with the tiny attacher because I knew I couldn't tie a tiny bow in less than a minute. I finished this with 6 seconds to spare.  

Please check out what my Snarky Sisters and our current Queen of Snark guest designer, Manuela, can do in 10 minutes or less.  

You have until 11:55 pm (EDT) on Friday May 1 to upload your project on the Sisterhood page.

Just Kidding!...mostly

The Snarky Sisters are sad to announce that the challenge site is closing.

Just kidding!

Welcome to Challenge 31 at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, where the letter J is for Just Kidding.

Can you make Edna laugh?  Here is my try:

I punched out the bullet holes for fun.  Then I decided to turn this into an anniversary card.  My husband missed our anniversary last month because he was away for work.  ;)

If I haven't given you a smile, then please visit my Snarky Sisters and our guest designers,  Jane and Michelle for a laugh.  I'm sure one of them can make you laugh.  Thanks for stopping by!
