My Entry for Lindy's Stamp Gang's April Color Challenge

Hey Crafty Friends have you checked out Lindy's Stamp Gang April Challenge?  Such Gorgeous colors!  

Here is my layout!  When I first glanced at the color scheme colors I had no idea what or how I was going to create what I had in my head.  I actually started recording a YouTube process video but after the background work I wasn't sure if it was going in the direction I hoped so I stopped the video.  At the end of this post I will have the quick process video.  

This Color combination is amazing!  I used Lindy's Stamp Gang's April Limited Edition color set.  Lots of ink spraying and using embossing powders!

I did use some embossing powders on the fairy resin pieces,  I didn't want them to stand out too much so I used light colors.

I also love to use ReneaBouquets Frosty Pink Dragonflies,  they were perfect for these colors!

Love me some microbeads,  glitter,  beads,  art stones and sequins for more texture and sparkle!

I wish I could capture the embossing I created on this chipboard piece,  Lindy's Stamp Gang Limited Edition April Embossing Powders were so Gorgeous to create with!  I love adding lots of layers with their embossing powders,  it really adds so much texture and interest to any project!

I also created a small shaker element to my layout surrounded by a chipboard circle that was embossed with powders.

I hope you get a chance to join the color challenge at Lindy's Stamp Gang April Color Challenge,  the colors are Amazing!

My Entry for More Than Words April Challenge Dream/Black & White + One Color

What a great challenge from More Than Words April Dream/Black & White +1!  My instinct wanted to go with blue but because I love to challenge myself I went with a rust color!
Here is my layout!  This picture of my kids is one of my favorites!  Each one of them have such different personalities and have different strengths,  I say Dare to Dream Big!  Don't settle for just your Dream but go after it with all of who you are!
I used the checkered stencil to represent each block is a building block on who they are becoming!

I used an embossing powder that looked like it was going to be that rust color but once I heated it on the black paper it looked more burnt!
Thanks for stopping by!

My Entry for Lindy's Stamp Gang's March Color Challenge ~Forever in My Heart~

Hey Crafty Friends!  Have you seen the new Color Challenge over at Lindy's Stamp Gang for March?  Super Gorgeous,  reminds me of wedding colors!
These colors are some of my Favorite colors!  Anything that reminds me of colors at the beach is my favorite!
Below is my layout I created!  I used lots of Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing Powders and some Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays.

I started with my background using texture paste and then sprinkled embossing powder using different shades then I sprayed some inks drying in between colors. 

I used embossing powders on my chipboard pieces with different shades and my goodness I just love Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing Powders,  they are so fun and unique.  You can achieve so many different effects using their embossing powders!

I love lots of texture,  more is better for me!  

I also love to use microbeads,  seedbeads,  sequins,  art stones and glitter glass for more texture and bling!

On this chipboard piece I used a couple different shades of embossing powders,  love this look!

That's it for my layout!  Hope you get a chance to play along at Lindy's Stamp Gang March Color Challenge!  

Thanks for stopping by! 
Happy Creating!!!
