Back to Paper...

OLW and some *LOVE*

First, here is my entry for this week's "One Little Word" Challenge.  The word is "Find."


The black border is for viewing purposes only.  To create the colored squares and rectangles, I drew them with a pencil, used a waterproof pen to outline the words  and hearts and then painted them with watercolor paints.  I stitched around each of the photos and words on my machine using a variegated thread.  The title and central photo were added to the layout by using an inkjet transfer method - basically you print on the shiny side of a transparency (reverse printed, of course) and then rub it on your paper. (Could it be any easier?)

Next up, I've been tagged and gifted by several fellow bloggers lately, so my thanks go out to:

1. Lisa, who is such a fun person and a scrapping maniac!  She recently took my Scrapalicious class at My Creative Classroom and was kind enough to bestow upon me the  "Spread the Love" award.


2. Christiane, who I know from SIStv.  She is so sweet and her work is so cool and arty!  Christiane was gracious enough to gift me with the  "You Make My Day" Award.


3. Gina, who is on both the Scrapbook Dimensions Dream Team and the Tara Sroka Creative Team with me (and does the best digi tutorials), tagged me!

4.  And way over due, is a huge thanks to Maria at Kitchen Sink Stamps, who sent me the "You Make My Day" award back in January!  (I am such a bad blogger!)  Her stamps are the *best* and so incredibly versatile!  Please go and buy some!  You won't regret it!


In return, I would like to recommend each of these fabulous ladies mentioned above.  They're all awesome!  Plus, here are a few other ladies who I think are great and are nice enough to leave comments on my blog all the time.  Thanks for the love!  Here's right back at you!
