Easter Hop Day 2 - Pink and Lavender

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of our new 5 for 5 Easter Blog Event!  Each day our designers will post an Easter project based on that day’s theme. Today’s theme is PINK AND LAVENDER! Some of us are even offering prizes, so be sure to leave comments on each of links below for details on how to win!


On Saturday I had the super awesome pleasure of taking an art journaling class with my favorite Julie Fei-Fan Balzer! So clearly I was in a painty artsy mood for today's Pink and Lavender theme.

ME AND JULIE! YAY!
I used all the techniques from class, including collage, lettering, messy painting, stamping, stencils, and having a focal point. I also used a couple of Julie's new stencils by The Crafter's Workshop: "Mini Rug" and "Mini Believe Script".


Maybe you haven't noticed the typo yet... I worked on this page for 3 hours, looked at it for a day, and photographed it without realizing my typo. And then... editing the photos I realized a big glaring typo HA! I'm still posting it, unedited, to show my brain lapse. ha.

no matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow



The beautiful stamps I used are from Unity Stamp Co "Wild Geranium" and the bird is from the "Dream a Little Bigger" kit.


I stamped the flower image on tissue paper and transferred it onto my journal page. Then I colored the image with my Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush Pens. I added some sparkle with glitter Mod Podge. I finished the page by adding Whipped Spackle through my scripted TCW stencil.



Time for Prizes!!!! I'm doing something a little different for this giveaway. You have up to 5 chances to enter for each blog post! The winner will be chosen on March 23rd so you'll have plenty of time to leave comments throughout the week!


As you can see, I got a little shop-happy at Target!! I'm giving away this goodie pack shown above. AND if you've ever won before you KNOW that I will throw in a whole lot more stuff. But this is what I can promise ;) Easter mini gel pens, pretty normal pens, Easter chevron page flags, pretty jeweled feathers, watercolored gift tags, fun erasers, and mint sticky notes.

  7. What a gorgeous page! Thanks for leaving the human element in... I wouldn't have noticed had you not pointed it out, but it makes me feel better to see even the pros have those moments. : ) Just put in one of those universal no parking signs (the P with a line through it) to have some giggles : )
