I'm Inspired

For all of you who have contacted me wondering if I'm alright, thank you. It's so nice to know that my friends actually miss me when I don't post for awhile. Well, I promised myself that I would only post to this blog when I felt inspired or had something meaningful to share, and frankly the past several weeks, I just haven't.

Today, I woke up and checked out the Inspiration challenge over at SCS and actually felt like creating. Nothing like a good Inspiration Challenge to get ya going. Try it, I know you'll like it!

I came across this pillow, called Brushstroke Square Pillow, I know "duh, kind of obvious!"

This got me thinking about using acrylic paint with stamps, a technique I absolutely love.  I whipped out my white paint and brushed it on a square stamp from a retired SU set called "Little Shapes" and stamped on black CS.  I was a little timid with the paint at first, so my squares had a shadowy effect that I wasn't all too happy about, so I went back and stamped again using more paint.  This made the squares seem to have more dimension, cool!  (Remember to wash paint off your stampsright away after stamping)

I stamped a heart from the CTMH set called "Game Night" in red acrylic paint. Again, this didn't have as much dimension as I wanted, so I stamped again on a separate sheet of CS, cut it out and popped it up.  I added the sentiment "Love" (Anna Griffin), and there you have it.

On another note, I've been trying to get back into scrapbooking recently and am almost done with a travel album that I will share soon.

Til then,
