Brayered Paint Halloween Cards

Hello My Creative Peeps!

This week I was crazy busy. I have so much to get done before the Happily We Go store launches and October is my busiest month as I have four of my five children’s birthdays to celebrate! Buuuuut, I am hoping to still find a wee bit of crafting time each week, mainly for my own sanity! (LOL)

For this week’s Inspiby, we were inspired by the gorgeous layout from Wilna. I didn’t feel like I had as much time this week to devote to a journaling layout but knew I could use the same techniques that she showed us in her video to create some Halloween cards. Hey, If there is a way for me to kill two birds with one stone, I’m going to do it! *wink

Here’s how I created the card:

Being Inspired, The Weekly Challenge.

As you know, we’ve embarked on the #inspiby challenge. You saw Karen’s amazing layout creation yesterday (Don’t forget to check her out on Instagram @deeillustra) and today I’ll show you mine! Now, the first thing you will notice is that it looks NOTHING like the challenge layout and that’s ok! If you find yourself inspired to create, whatever the outcome may be, then you’ve succeeded as that was the original goal!

Doodling and the power of the mind..

On this self growth journey I’m forcing myself to try new things (Creativity wise I mean). Some days, as a mother, seem more difficult than others and I find myself struggling to make it into the craft room, aka: the Office. So today I tried something new, I brought my supplies into the living room and doodled while watching an anime. It was a new one, slightly dark and creepy, but I loved the premise and the visual aspects of it so I doodled.  I listened to the show while I worked and just let go creatively.

Unmount the mounted..

I love stamping. I always have.  Unfortunately I wasn’t ever very good at it. Sometimes you would push too hard, or not hard enough and end up with a barely visible design. It was maddening. Fast forward to years later and they’ve come out with clear stamps! PRAISE!  You were actually able to see where you were stamping.  Alas, I still wasn’t very good at it (queue the mini violins).  Again, the retail world came up with the Misti’s and the stamp perfects and all the other stamp press devices and Hot diggity, I am now the stamp queen! (ok, maybe not the queen- but I’m somewhere lurking in the castle!)
