I used the direct-to-paper technique for the colour on the blue cardstock. That is when you take your ink pad and drag it directly onto the cardstock. I like to use the small stampin' spots inkpads from Stampin' Up when I do the direct-to-paper technique because it gives me more control than a bigger ink pad.
I used the direct-to-paper technique for making the distant mountains on the scene as well. I punched a circle from a post-it note to use as a mask for the sun and then sponged colour over it for the sky. When I removed the mask, I lightly sponged some colour on the sun. Ink was sponged on for the water. Then I stamped the images in black ink and used a white gel pen to add higlights to the water and images.
I tried to make it look like a setting sun.
May your smile always be sunny too. :D

I have recently enjoyed getting back into yoga so I wanted to create a page to honour it. Inspiration for your journals can come from everyday life.
Enjoy the creative process! :D

I bought a package of these snowmen images because I thought they were so cute and I liked the glitter on them. For this card I made a snowy background using a snowy evergreen tree stamp that I stamped several times and a snowflake stamp. I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the bottom and sponged ink onto the lacy punched border. I tried to use the same coloured inks on the card that were on the snowman image. Then I attached the snowman image with pop dots.
Doesn't he look like he's saying "Hurray for Winter!"?
Happy New Year to all and I hope we all have a safe, healthy and happy winter season.
