What If You Fly?

Oohhh, I've made my first Monday Muse post for ArtStacks! I wanted to share how easy it is to re-size our DigiStacks. On the ArtStacks blog you can find three simple steps how to do this. You can find the post HERE.

I re-sized a butterfly to create the large wings behind Courtney in this photo. It's so cool and so easy!

I used the red poppies, black and white anemones, tissue flowers and butterflies all from ArtStacks' Anemones & Friends DigiStack.

Happy scrappin'!

Fall Down 7 Times


Don't you hate it when you go to all the effort to make something then forget to post it? That's what I did this month - lol.

The new Mini Challenge at More Than Words is to use the word FALL on a mini project. I made a postcard.

All my features are from ArtStacks. I used the girl with a swagger from the Faces & Figures stack, the butterfly is from the Anemones & Friends stack and the quote is from the Inspirational Words MiniStack.

I hope you can join us this month. You can find the challenge here.

Happy scrappin'!

A Bug's Life

Hello and welcome back!

November is all about bugs over at Kraft +! Yep - you need to add bugs to your project made on kraft. Bugs can be anything - ants, beetles, moths or butterflies. 

My daughter and I have just launched our new business - ArtStacks - so I was so excited to be able to use the products for this project. You can check out our brand new website here. 

I made an art journal page for the challenge:

Everything on this page, except the paint and the scrap paper around the quote, is from ArtStacks. I love this figure - she's so expressive. She's from our Faces & Figures stack.

I wanted to use our beautiful butterflies from our Anemones & Friends stacks and I feel I created the impression of the figure opening her mind which worked perfectly with the quote.

The tissue paper flowers under the figure and in the corners are also from the Anemones & Friends stack and the quote is from the Inspirational Words stack.

I hope you can join us at Kraft Plus this month! You can find the challenge here.

Happy scrappin'!

'Tis the Season for Leaves!


Whoops - I got so sidetracked by the launch of our new business, ArtStacks, that I forgot to put up this post! It's been an incredibly busy, but rewarding, time.

The challenge this month at More Than Words is to be inspired by the word SEASON and to use LEAVES on your project. 

We were in Cres, in Croatia, when we turned a corner and saw the most amazing sunset! Cres is a beautiful old town where the buildings have shuttered windows so I went with lots of shutters from ArtStacks on my page. I painted them blue/grey to match the clouds in the photo.

The chipboard flourish is from The Dusty Attic.

I hope you can join us this month! You can find the challenge details here.

Happy creating!
