SDC143-April Showers

Perfect time for this challenge over at Stampotique as everyday that I have worked on this, including blogging it today it has been raining. I had a lot of fun with this art journal page playing with their awesome stamps. 
I started with a background of Heidi Swapp Colorshine then built my page from there. You can't see from the photo but the clouds are glittery shimmery as I used Glimmer Glam on them.

One of the things I love to do is to figure out new ways to use the stamps. For example I used part of the Octopet stamp as background grasses, and the skirt of Glimmering Hope to make clouds. Heehee cracks me up-love it! Of course no rain page is complete without Relaxin- one of my all time favs- I took her off her chair & had her sitting on my stencil image. 

Which is a great segway to talk about the stencils I used. My friend Patti Tolley Parrish has a brand new stencil line with istencils -YAYAY PATTI!!!! 
One of the nicest people you will ever meet she sent me some to play with. Over the next few blogs I will be using her stencils so check back to see how cool they are! This stencil is called "Outback" PTP007-her stencils come in 6x6 & 8x10 sizes and she has tons of cool geometric shapes-love them. I used Viva pearl modeling creme with the stencil-love how quickly this stuff drys and it has lovely pearl finish. You can check out Patti's blog for tons of great instructional videos here. Now go get inky!


  1. Love the different ways you used the stamps clever girl! Very cool stencil, too! Love this page!
