Celebrating all seasons with So Suzy Stamps

Hi everyone, don’t you love when you can just play? Crafting is my stress relief and my favorite part about crafting is when I can just let loose and let my imagination take over. No thinking about how to align things or which supply to use… just grabbing things randomly and playing with it πŸ™‚ This is how these cards came together. I just started playing with these water color powders and created several backgrounds.

Let's address the elephant in the room - an art journal page with StencilGirl

Yay for a new art journal page. I recently ordered a couple of StencilGirl stencils and had to try a few of them. For this art journal page I used two of Nathalie Kalbach’s stencil.
