LIM , US challenge..and a bunch of stuff...


Less is More: Header Inspiration


Today is the last day of the month  Stampotique will be sponsoring the Less is More challenge and they have challenged us to use their header as inspiration.  Make sure you check out their blog for guidelines to the Less is More challenge. Stampotique is  giving away at $30 gift certificate for Stamps ! This will also go for the "anything goes challenge blog" = polka dots, birthday.  Here is my take on the LIM blog header as inspiration:


So, yea...pretty easy and love it!  I used this gorgeous butterfly (large butterfly 3047) and stamped it once in crushed curry (SU) and once in black. The dots are a stencil same ink with a sponge.   Then I used Wish (word 3048 ) both by Jo Capper-Sandon , on the left bottom.  These are a few images that I use ALOT .  Next is my creation for the Unscripted Sketches' challenge this week.  I used "thinking of you" .  
I colored with copics and did a little sewing and layering.  The words are from a TH sticker sheet . I would also like to enter this into the challenge at : "daring card makers " challenge blog= Patterned paper mania! Use SIX different pattern papers on your card!  lol  LOVE IT!  Count em up baby!  Dont forget to count the little itty bitty tag to the top of the image ....he he he!


Last I am popping in my pages below for "art journal everyday"., and "just journal linky party"..went with an Independence day thought...did I mention  I L O V E  to art journal??.. :)
Using some Julie Balzer stencils with sprays , gesso and acrylics...magazine scraps..."sun design" and "daisy daisy" stamps from Stampotique.  I doodled the leaves and the white circles done with my fav white signo uniball pen.  Hope you all have a great 4th to celebrate..I hope it cools off here just a little.  TFL

I'm loving all your creations today!. Very smart with the yellow & black butterfly stamping :). It's gorgeous.
Your art journal pages are screaming 'Lets Party!!' I LOVE the boots! Somehow all the colors remind me of Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA Hard Rock Cafe t-shirt!. Super cool.
