Sunday Sentiments


Here is another card I made for my daughter. She went to a bridal shower yesterday and asked me to make a card for her. I feel this one is a mix of the old and new me. I love traditional stamping and my favorite scrapbook paper. However, my new loves are gesso, torn cardboard, and adding elements I would not have before. I had fun creating the dress. I used netting for the skirt and added gesso to the bottom for a "lacy" look and then glued the pearls. I outlined the bodice using a glaze pen and then covered with micro fine glitter. (Fun technique learned at a stamp show). I did stamp a heart and some flowers inside, I just forgot to take a picture. I feel that my creativity is growing and I have learned so much from blog friends and my sister!

Here is my weekly thankful top 5 list:

1. GESSO
2. Learning to appreciate what I have done
3. Accepting that I have to try no matter how much my head tells me that I can't
4.Old scrapbook paper
5.Blog hopping and learning so much

YES! Gesso! What would we do without it?
