Happy Friday everyone! It is finally warming up here, the snow is melting and we are looking at getting to the mid 40s today! But my absolute favorite sign that Spring might be sprung is the return of the robins. We have a lovely mother who has nested under our deck for the last few years and it is just amazing watching her chicks grow.
In celebration of the return of Spring and the robins I have a new mini album to share with you! I've been planning this one for several months now, ever since I had the chance to work with the wonderful Lisa Pace for Maya Road at ScrapFest last year. The cards they created in class were exquisite and I went away so very inspired. So armed with a pile of new Maya Road goodies I gave it a go and this was the result!

It is that time of the year again, Graphic 45 is looking for their new design team and I couldn't be more excited to give it a go! For the last three weeks I have been working my tail feathers off creating all new projects to share for my audition; I am extremely pleased with the results and cannot wait to share them with you!

It has been oh so long my lovelies, but several obligations have cleared up in life leaving me with more free time and the ability to fill up that free time with all sorts of crafty fun! And I thought my first day post back I would share with you the mini album I made for a friend for Christmas. I wanted to showcase our time together at Scrapfest 2011 using Graphic 45's wonderful Magic of Oz line.
I used the Bo Bunny edgy album from the Et Cetera line-which I absolutely loved the variety of shapes that the album provided to work with. Some were covered in patterned papers while other pages were left bare. All of them though were inked with black soot.
I filled the album with tags and pockets, using a lot of alcohol ink and acetate, along with a lot of fussy cutting.
|That little tin man was a real pain to cut out, but he turned out so cute it was worth it!|
Behind the tag on this page I have a cut out of the wizard in his balloon, to try and create a stylized look of clouds I alcohol inked the edges of the acetate pocket.
I just had to use the feet of the wicked witch of the east so this was one of my favorite pages to work on. I used grunge paper on the tree and cut it out with the Tim Holtz Branch Tree die cut.
Katie wore her own pair of ruby slippers to the Graphic 45 class so I thought it would be the perfect page to break out one of the stamp sets for the last two pages using the yellow brick road in scattered straw.
Thanks for stopping by and bearing with me as life falls back into place!
