collecting inspiration

I'm loving the newest goods from Jenni Bowlin Studio this season. I've put together something really simple today featuring a bunch of the lovely wood veneer pieces, flatbacks, rubons, and triangle sequins! One of the biggest projects for a class I'm currently taking is learning to see and collect inspiration from the world all around you. It's been a very eye opening, and lovely experience. I have to say, it really makes you think a bit more about the world all around you that you pass by all the time - sometimes without even seeing.

"I love the spring time feel of this paper collection and thought it paired wonderfully with this picture of my son on his favorite tree swing. I added some complementary watercolors ot my page with soft blues and just a hint of yellow.  Then I decided to add a little contrast and painted the chipboard letters with India ink for my title."

Thank you ladies for your wonderful pieces of inspiration!

New Product Focus: Wood Veneer & Sequins

I am loving all the new wood veneer designs and sparkly sequins in the newest JBS release! I knew they'd be the perfect embellishments for a page about our recent trip to Mexico, so I gathered up my favorites and got to work!

To create a beachy feel on the background, I lightly brushed it with Speckled Egg ink that I watered down.  Once it was dry, I used the Plus One Stencil with aqua acrylic paint and added some of the cross-hatch texture over the top.  I then cleaned out the stencil and used it again with a teal fine-tip marker to trace additional plus-signs around the painted areas.

I layered a few paper scraps down the center of the page and then arranged my wood frames vertically as well. I sized my four photos to fit inside the Insta-Frames, which will perfectly hold 2x2-inch prints. Adhering them with foam dots helps to pop them up off the wood a bit.

I used the Speech Bubbles stencil to trace shapes onto white cardstock. Then I cut them out with small scissors and used them to hold my journaling strips (also brushed with water down Speckled Egg ink.)

Finally, I sprinkled several of the wood veneer clouds, clear sequins, and flower sequins around the page. They add the ideal finishing touch to this vacation page!

The wood veneers, stencils, and sequins are now available online and in scrapbook stores. We'd love to see what your create with them!

Happy Scrapping!

New Product Focus: Say What?

When my son was little, he would say that something was " three wishes" instead of saying it was delicious. When I saw the new Jenni Bowlin Studio gold rub-ons, I knew I wanted to use them to tell the tale.

I wasn't sure where I wanted to use the rub-ons at first. I applied them to some vellum so I could easily move them around the page. Using the vellum also made it easy to add the Pennant Rub-On to a toothpick. I used some paper tape to make some smaller pennants Though I love the gold rub-ons, my favorite new release item are the Wood Veneer Buttons. I love the gentle touch of warmth they add to my layouts.
