Weekend Junket #08

Here we go...April's next set of prompts:


Colors/feelings that Inspire...SPRING

What do you feel like or what colors do you think of when you think of spring?  Use that as yet another inspiration for you for your project(s) this time around.


curve ball - include a quote, words of wisdom or saying
product focus - scrapbook paper (stash buster)
texture - chipboard

At times I may find it interesting to put a twist on the prompts is to use the term....
Use something NEW, something OLD something BORROWED and something BOLD!
Now understand that I may not use the above on every challenge, but  I sure am gonna try!  

Here is my take...

Thought is was time I pulled out some pictures (okay one) and did a's only been a few years!  So I started with the product focus prompt and went to my stash (and yes, it is a somewhat large one) and pulled out the first one my hands touched! No going back now!  From there, I would pull the next prompts to suit what I was going to try and pull off....a simple ol' scrapbook page!

I will apologize right off the top - there are not a lot of photos and not a lot of inspiration.  My main focus with this one was to use product from my stash.  Some very old, some a tad newer.

The papers I used was an very old paper from Glitz Designs called Basics (circa 2008)!  Individual papers were Signs, Basic Table and Stripes. This was a favorite line of mine and used it a lot and hoarded it just as much!

The addition of the chipboard is a mix of Blue Fern Studios Molecules and Seeing Stars.  I sprayed, painted and/or inked them all.  I used Stencil1 Spray Ink in Day Glow Orange, Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Barn Door Red and inked them all using Ranger Ink Archival Ink Jet Black.

One of the things I liked so much about the 'Table' sheet, was that I could cut out extra bits of the table using words I wanted on the page (that I thought were appropriate). The chipboard was adhered down using Glossy Accents and the photos....with my trusty ATG Gun.

The final touch was the saying I used, which I thought was kinda appropriate. I used American Crafts Thickers - Adorn (#683692) from the Maggie Holmes Confetti Collection.

Hope you enjoyed this walk down memory lane with me! It has been a long time since I scrapbooked and I actually quite enjoyed it!  But now I really want to go play in my art journal!
