On this page, I wanted to pay tribute to Bryce Canyon National Park, which has a special place in my heart. I started with a background of blue paint. Then built up layers of brown, peach, metallic copper, and white to build the hoodoos of the park. I used acrylic ink to write the title and for the ink drops. I stamped a text border along the edge. Then stamped some tissue paper with a text stamp and used semi-gloss gel medium to apply it to the page.

This a page I actually made in November. The base of this page is “Sharpie ghosting” which I learned about on this video:
The inspiration for this page came from the product label/cover from Corn Pops cereal bowls that are used in the lunch program where I work. I really liked the way the label looked. I also used the dull silver from the back of the label to make hearts. My MIL stamped the tissue paper I used on the page. It was gift wrap from a present she gave me. I like the cartoon-y feel of the page.
Each year I set up a sweat shop in my kitchen and utilize some child labor to get my Christmas cards made. In other words, I make my cards with my children. I am still working on this year’s version (I’m feeling a bit behind), but I’ll share one from a few year’s past. This was one of my two favorites.
The idea is from this website, Bethany Actually. You need some tin foil, glue, tissue paper, glitter, and sequins. I stripped the kids down and set them to work glueing tissue paper to the tin foil. When that was done, I brushed glue over the top and sprinkled on silver glitter.
When dry, I cut the tree shapes with pinking sheers and glued them onto card bases. We added sequin ornament and a star shaped sequin for the tree topper.
