It is my turn to do an inspiration post for January on the Cute as a Button showcase blog
I have made pages in the journal I am making for one of my grand daughters.
I painted pages with Metallique Light Patina acrylic paint.
Sprayed parts with Dylusions Ink Spray.
Painted star stencil with a mixture of white paint and moulding paste.
Painted dots and border with left over mixture.
Added punched hearts.
Printed Cute as a Button stamps Faith, Hope and Love from the Faith Fairies Bundle
(There are 4 fairies in the bundle the other one is Believe.)
Coloured with markers, cut out and layered on top.
Printed sentiment from the bible, drew around with gel pen, cut out and layered on top.
Painted over the top with Distress Collage Medium.

Welcome to my blog
I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
