Miscellaneous News....

I totally forgot to share one of my past Scrapping The Music layouts with you! It was for the song "Just Fine" by Mary J. Blige. It's an awesome, empowering song! Here's the video...



The timing was amazing for this because I was going through a bit of a struggle with someone at the time (not family or loved ones - no worries), and it was great therapy to interpret the song in my art journal. Here's what I created...
It felt great getting it out, and I included a little envelope on the page to put some private journaling. I love those little Maya Road envelopes! I used the Studio Calico "Yearbook" kit for this, plus acrylic paint, Heidi Swapp Alpha masks, Stampin Up Alphabet stamps, and the owl is a fabulous new stamp from Tattered Angels. Isn't he beautiful? I couldn't resist. I shaded him a little with colored pencils.

Speaking of Scrapping The Music, there are still a few days to play along with our "Rainbow Connection" challenge, which has two chances to win prizes!!! Click here to go to directly to the challenge!

I followed a link from Kelly Kilmer's blog and found a super cool masking tape giveaway here.

Oh, and I got my Studio Calico "Granny's Cupboard" kit yesterday and it's fantastic! It's the first time since the Yearbook kit that I felt compelled to buy all three add-ons and even tho I am now BROKE it was worth it! I will share pics tomorrow...

Alrighty, that's about all. I hope your weekend is full of inspiration!

I saw this at the STM blog and it is stunning!!! The colours, the alpha's, the stamp... oh my! I love those "therapeutic" sessions myself while scrapping, it's such a relief to spit it out on paper and on top of that I always end up with a clear mind, open heart and wonderful layout! Have a happy and creative weekend Michelle!

Ooo...yes, I would have loved those Maya Road scalloped-edged envies! Great idea, the private journaling. I still need to do some therapy on my life circa 1998 (ugh). And yes, that owl stamp is aMaZiNg! Hope you had a great weekend!
