Just Us Girls - Wild Card Week


 


Happy Saturday!  It's time for another Just Us Girls challenge.  Sadly this will be my last with the team.  I've been here for 595 challenges since the very beginning.  I never planned on leaving the team but it's hard to make cards.  While I will not stop stamping and making cards but COVID and everyone home and still home has made it difficult for card making.  My hubby works from the office which is where all my stamping supplies are.  So since the beginning of all this I have resorted to the kitchen table and went back to drawing and art journaling since it's less supplies. I usually try to sneak a card in at night or weekends.  

Anyhow, I picked a good challenge to end on which is Anything But a Card!  This week I picked up a art journal at my local art supply store and it's a 7x7, pretty cool size actually.  I immediately wanted to play in it and here are two pages I was able to create in the last few days from my kitchen table :-)

This first one is using paints from Deco Arts, Posca Pens, Stencil from Recollections and a Dare 2B Artzy stamp set by Tracy Weinzapfel. 



This second one started with Dina Wakley gloss sprays, Posca pens and a shimmer paint by Deco Arts. All the flowers are hand drawn reason why they are so wonky! LOL! But overall in the end I liked how it came out wonky and all!  


Anyhow it's been a fantastic run with Just Us Girls!  All the best to the team in the future!! Hugs to all!

Just Us Girls Trend Week


Happy Saturday!  Sue is up as hostess for Trend Week and she picked Recycle as our trend.

Recycling to reduce waste, think of using packaging, security envelopes (some pretty patterns on the insides),  old book pages or magazines, let your imagination run wild with this.

I recently got a shipment of awesome wines from Dry Farms Wines and used the insert they included in the packaging.  I cut it down and used it as a background for my card.
