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!
