Road Trip

Pauline and I are taking a road trip Saturday to Paula's. LOVE going to Paula's, sometimes when I'm there I just sit quietly and try to absorb the inspiration! Crazy! And this roadtrip pairs up perfectly with Stamping Bella's Molly makes a Detour. That's me, sitting on top of all the suitcases that will packed with my paints, inks, sprays and mixed media stuff I'll be bringing along!


You guessed it...gonna be a wild and wonderful artsy craftsy day and I'm pumped. Not sure yet what I'm gonna work on, maybe my AJ Monday page, or maybe play with my new Inktense watercolor pencils that will be waiting for me. Now it's been a LONG time since I used a watercolor pencil...like probably 10 years ago when I first started stamping with Stamping Up. I think I have long given that set away but I'm looking forward to playing around with 72 new colours!

As always I stamped Molly on bella's BESTEST paper and started colouring her with markers, but finished up most, if not all, of it with pencils. I wanted a softer more vintage look and that is why I leaned more toward pencils. If you are curious, I paired her up with Simple Stories Baby Steps paper and that leather belt, well it all started with a piece of paper and was made by me. If you wanna know how I did it, check out Kittie's faux leather post here.

And don't forget about our sketch this Friday. Email your card to Emily at emily@stampingbella.com by next Thursday to see it on her blog, but if you wanna a chance to win some Bella Bucks, upload your card to SCS using the keyword BELLARIFIC0512. All of the challenge details over on SCS can be found in the forum here. Good Luck! I know you all love a sketch so no excuses! Get Busy!
