Some Klimt inspiration using my Citra Solv backgrounds

Went to an advanced Citra Solv class with Kayann Ausherman of From Victory Road today to see what I could do with my stash of Citra Solv sheets I made a few months back. Kayann was working on a Klimt-inspired canvas, which then inspired me to do this. Still a work in progress...

Grungy, messy, awesome!

This is my latest Inspiration Wednesday journal layout. I love the colors and the grungy, messy, graffiti-like feel to it. In case you're not familiar, Donna Downey hosts an Inspiration Wednesday year-long workshop where every two weeks she demonstrates techniques, supplies and color challenges for the year. It's great fun to watch the videos and try your hand with her. I'm endeavoring to stay caught up this year with my various projects and not get behind! Stay tuned!

P.S. My camera phone washes out the color on these photos. This is much brighter in person.

A homemade smash book, Reader's Digest style

I made a little smash book tonight! Took an old Reader's Digest book, cut out the innards, lined the inside, attached a Tim Holtz two-ring binder and added many pages, tags and other goodies. Will probably fill it out with cool stuff like washi tape, rub-ons and maybe some dry-ish stenciling, quotes and other pretty things.
