Entry for Unity Challenge

This month's Unity Stamp Co challenge is to be inspired by the poem, Autumn Harvest, which talks about the leaves falling to the ground.  That is my favourite part of Fall, the leaves changing colour and covering the ground with a multitude of warm inviting colours.  The set I used is a Stamping Store Kit, which I had been admiring for awhile.

HCCC Challenge September - a little late

So the September challenge for the Hazzard County Card Challenge was to create a gate fold card inspired by autumn.  I actually created this card right away, however, it's taken me forever to take a picture and post it.  The stamp is from Lizzie Anne Designs and the paper is some retired Stampin 'Up patterned paper.
Hope you have a good week!

TGIF - FWF Friday!!!

Yay!  It's Friday, yippeee!!! Today I'm posting something slightly different.  I have been following Donna Downey's blog, and been really inspired by her art journals.  I bought this book awhile ago, intending to use it as a mini album for a friend, but realized it had way too many pages for a mini album, and with it's thick, water-colour like paper, thought it would be perfect for an art journal.  I finally got my hands on some Faber Castell gelatos, and have been wanting to play with them, so I used those, and some Unity/Donna Downey co-brand stamps to create my first page.  I hope to play in this journal often, especially trying out new techniques and mediums.
