More Inspirational Quote Projects

 Hello all!
My last post was about some inspirational quote projects
that I made for our scrapping/crafting studio.
Today I have a few more to show you.
This is one of the walls at My Happy Place.
The banner at the top says CREATE,
I made that banner quite a while ago and it was 
hanging in a different spot, so we moved that over on
this wall.
The background of this piece was created
 with watercolor crayons.  I colored a few colors onto
my craft mat, added water and 'smooched' the 
watercolor paper into the color to pick it up.
After it was dried I used my light box to 
trace the words and painted them with 
I adhered the project to a piece of matting and strung
the ribbon through holes around the sides and to make
the hanger.
This one was done by stamping the flowers onto
I love the smooth surface of this paper for coloring.
I used VersaFine Onyx Black ink for the stamping,
did the coloring with my Fantasia Colored Pencils.
The words were painted with pearlescent watercolors.
This last piece was the start of my whole
"journey" into making these projects.
It started with this inspiration
from Kristina Werner.
As I said in my last blog post,
It's all about 
Inspiration not Re-creation.
I'm not as talented as she is,
so I used my light box to trace 
the words that I had printed onto a 
piece of computer paper using
pearlescent watercolors.
(Can you tell that I love them?)
The background was made 
with the 'smooching' technique I 
mentioned above using Distress Inks.

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I've
been up to.
I hope you'll come again soon.
I have one more project to show you in this
"series" ..... well, until I get some more done that is.
I hope you are enjoying them and have gotten some 
inspiration from them.
Until next time:
Make Pretty Things!
