Hello and welcome to the Sarah Hurley 365 blog.
I'm (Clare) back and once again I have a journal page to share, so much fun!
I'm not quite sure where the inspiration came from, it's certainly not a reflection on the weather. You see we had a heavy snow fall the previous day so everything is white lol. Saying that I love snow and playing in it is awesome so perhaps the bright colours are more of a reflection on my mood. Seeing my boys happy makes me happy and they were smiles all round when building snowmen and having a snow ball fight hee hee.
I just adore Sarah's Charm Street Cuties and are just a joy to colour in so out they came to play!
Here's how a created my journal page.
1 - Stamp the girl from the 'Flower Girl' Charm Street Cuties stamp set directly onto the page.
2 - Mask the girl and add colour to your page. I used Tim Holtz distress inks in the following colours, picked raspberry, broken china and mowed lawn.
3 - Stamp the banner from Flower Girl' Charm Street Cuties stamp directly onto the page. Add some stripes and colour in. I used Kuretake Wink of Stella glitter pens.
4 - Using black ink, stamp and colour in the heart stamp from the 'Thinking of You' Charm Street Cuties. Again I used Wink of Stella pens.
5 - Using black ink stamp a scallop border from 'Wish Upon A Star' Doodle Doll stamp set.
6 - Using picked raspberry distress ink stamp the mesh back ground stamp from 'Princess Girl' Doodle Doll stamp set, directly onto the page.
7 - I wanted to overhang the clouds so I stamped a few on white cardstock, fussy cut then stuck them down.
8 - I also realised at this point I wanted my banners to pop out more so I stamped some flags onto smoothe white card, then stuck them down.
9 - Next I needed some journalling so I used the sentiment from the 'Princess Girl' Doodle Doll stamp set. This sums up my four nieces just perfectly.
10 - Finally I coloured the Flower Girl using Promarkers and the flowers using Wink Of Stella.
