I'm Paula, an avid scrapbooker with 2 nearly grown sons. I have been scrapping for about 17 years & decided that I would like to share my love & talents for it with others. I created 'Precious Pages by Paula' to do exactly that. There is a line of pre-designed scrapbooks & frames, as well as doing custom one-of-a-kind albums with your photos. Cards are prayerfully made in the hopes of carrying special blessings to their recipients.
Not much time for creating today. I had great plans to get a lot of creating done but things don't always work out as they should. I had to take my son to the post office to get his passport this afternoon and tonite I had a meeting at church. Next thing I know it's nearly bedtime! I have two more layouts from my day at Nemours last summer. (one from last night and one from tonight!) First I have a page inspired by challenge #92 over at Feeling Sketchy.
I know this is a really short post for me but I've been staying up far too late recently and tomorrow I have a work day so I have to call it a night already! I promise to have something more for you tomorrow - at least THAT is the plan! Have a great night!
It has been a rough week. Lots of lack of mojo combined with lack of a car left me just totally lacking... But today I was finally able to get a few layouts done... The first was for a recipe challenge at Soul Scrappers. Here is the recipe:
I included all 5 colors of the Scheme. My Evidence were flowers, scallops, floral pattern (background paper), textured paper (yellow cardstock was embossed), and for Testimony I used some lyrics from the hymn 'It is well with my Soul'.
I've been working on a mixed media canvas for the past week or so. I started it in the usual way - with a coat of gesso. Then I took my favorite texture medium - DryDex spackling and some of my Crafters Workshop templates.
On top of this I added strips of dry wall tape. This is the first time I've used that and I'm sure I will be playing with it again soon.
Next I took some Gelatos and a wet brush and added color.
The colors were a bit more vibrant than what I had envisioned so I took some watered down gesso and covered it.
Ok...now I'm ready... There was a quote challenge on Soul Scrappers and I knew exactly how I wanted to use it. Here is the quote:
"Be a girl with a mind,
A woman with an attitude
And a lady with class."
I had recently purchased 3 of the Julie Nutting/Prima Doll stamps and they were just perfect! I took some StazOn Jet Black ink and stamped them on an off white cardstock and then fussy cut them out. I stamped them again on various patterned papers and fussy cut their clothes, shoes and hair. I took a flesh colored Spectrum Noir pen and added a bit of color to the skin. I printed the quote on a peachy-pink patterned paper in separate lines and I cut them out with a ragged edged tearing ruler.
I laid the dolls and the quote out and moved them around until I got them where I wanted them and then I glued them down. I covered it all with a coat of ModPodge Matte Medium.
