I had a blast doing this one! I took the background I'd already made and used on all the previous pages, and inked it with some green (Peeled Paint distress ink, to be exact), using a foam blending sponge. Then I adhered the green swirls, cut from a Sizzix die. Over top all this, I glued a sheet of acetate that I had run through the Big Kick with a floral Cuttlebug embossing folder, and colored with alcohol inks (gold, pesto, and lettuce). The beautiful images are PID, of course, and this particular sheet comes with the script already printed. They are glued onto the acetate. The gothic arch is also from PID, printed on a transparency. Lots and lots of layers and texture, and even more interesting in person, but you'll have to take my word on that!

This weeks challenge at Paper Imagery Designs is "doodle." I did an ATC:
For my miscellaneous piece, I took a chipboard shape I had (with a pattern I didn't much like, but a shape I loved), covered it with two different patterned papers and doodled with the same pens. I then punched a hole in the top and added some ribbon scraps:
Of course, each piece has a lovely PID image.

Of course, I found it impossible to figure out how to put it here in this blog post.
So click on the link to Teri's blog and enjoy this video.
Happy Mother's Day to everyone....because at one time or another we've all mothered someone!

I love the irregularity of the edges, and the use of sheet music. They are kind of grungy and edgy, and I really wanted to buy them. But....after tax they would be about $2 per flower, and I just thought that was nuts.
So, I went home, pulled out some scraps of sheet music, some inks, glimmer mist and patterned paper, a few brads, and created these:What do you think? I'm liking my knock-offs a lot! And I didn't spend a dime.
