My first project is using this fantastic set and the matching dies, cause life's too short for fussy cutting ;)
I created a 12x12 layout, using the stamps, dies and the gorgeous watercolor markers. Here it is-


This was so fun and easy to make, just watch my video tutorial and see how this came together-








Next project is another 12x12 layout, and this time I used this beautiful and elegant flower stamp set. I've been a long time fan of Altenew's flowers stamps, this one is a great addition to my collection.


My favorite way of using these type of stamps is with white embossing powder, and then watercolor them, and that's exactly what I did here-


So simple, so pretty!






Last but not least is a really special set, I have nothing like this in my collection, and I think it is fantastic!
This is the Book Club set and it's perfect for your library of books or journals. Use it on your kids books as well! Here's how I used mine-


I embossed it with gold sparkly powder. So simple and so pretty!



Those are my projects for today, but visit the other hop stops for tons of inspiration! Here's the list-

Journal With Me- Making Faces- Jane Davenport & Spellbinders Collection

Hey everyone! I'm so excited to share with you what I've created with the Jane Davenport & Spellbinders Making Faces collection. Let's dive right in!


To see how everything came together, simply watch the video tutorials I created!




The base for everything I created were the Not-Quite-A-Blank-Slate Set, especially the printed pages with Jane's artwork. They were so fun to play with!





I also had fun painting my own images on the blank sheets. I used all the lovely products I have from this collection. It's hard to pick favorites, but the Quill pen and the pastels are amazing!




After all the painting and coloring fun, I added my creations to my art journals. That part was so enjoyables! Finding the perfect page to add my new faces to. 




  

I hope you enjoyed and feel inspired to play and create something pretty! Check out all these goodies and more on Jane's website, or at Micheal's!
