Breast Cancer Awareness Journal Page

Hi Everyone!  It's Danie here today and I have a project that I have created with Breast Cancer Awareness Month in mind.

I only got back from my overseas holiday on Sunday so had to think of something relatively quick to do so I decided on a loose 5 x 7 journal page on watercolor paper.

As you are aware we are partnering with Art Anthology this month so I started by spritzing my page with some of the Art Anthology Coloration Spray in the color Patience (Pink)  and then stuck down some torn piece of various pink papers from my Glitz and Kaisercraft Paper Pads which is one of my usual methods of creating backgrounds you have seen before.

Then I sprayed again with the Coloration Spray to tint the white edges of my torn papers.  I then took my Art Anthology Dimensional Crystal Paint- Fairy and Guava and added some stripes of color around my page smearing them in an across my background as I went with a credit card.  Lastly I repeated this same process with a small amount of gesso.

I then cut out some images from various Altered Pages Collage Sheets and stuck these onto my piece. I added some stamping from the Unity October 2011 KOTM which is Breast Cancer Awareness related using Staz On Inks and then finished by adding the word hope using the Red Tag Alphabet Collage Sheet attached to some twine and added a white petaloo flower.

Supplies Used

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle.

Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today.

One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer above used th…

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.

With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 

Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.

Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…
