Today is the Smeared Ink End of Term/New Release Hop...and you should be coming here from the Lovely Black Dragon's blog... I have really been looking forward to this hop especially after I saw all the new images that are being released (pics at the bottom of this post) but the image I got was so perfect for me! I have so many plans...I can't wait to use it on a scrapbook page!!! eek
Its a notebook that I have been keeping all my pregnancy stuff in....like appointments and little bits about how I'm feeling...kinda like a journal just recording things that I think are interesting and that I think baby will like when he/she grows up....and things I'll probably forget...ugh I don't know where my mind is these days!!!!
I used guesso to cover the whole base of my book...I really like that some of the checker still shows threw...I think it gives it a little something more...then I got green, orange, and purple paints and squirted a dab on an old credit card and scraped it across the book to create the background, then I took some shimmery white and painted a spot for my new cute lil dragonfly family to set, then glued that in, then I took the Joy from the Symbology of Angels set and stamped that across the top, and put two little flowers in each corner from the Killer Bo Peep Build a Garden set. and colored them in with some sharpies....
I sure hope you like it and it inspired you a little
