Who Are You? with the UnstampaBelles

Our theme this month at the UnstampaBelles challenge is Something Positive that Reflects Who You Are, with the optional twist of Bright Colors and/or explain a bit about yourself and why you created this piece in your journalling. You need to follow the twist to be considered as the DT Favorite, but you only have to follow main theme to win our prize. And remember, no stamps!

I created this silly card using paper "painted" by my 14-month-old son! The monkey is on an Action Wobble.

Here's my little artist at work!



Be sure to check out the fabulous projects by my teammates the UnstampaBelles this month!

Shakey Scissors -- Sketch at International Art & Soul

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge we have a Sketch. I love sketch challenges, and had so much fun with it!
I decided to go with a Crafting theme, to show off some of my stash (instead of hoarding it as I tend to do!): the papers are from PhotoPlay, and the Sequin mix is from Spiegelmom Scraps. The sentiment inside the shaker came with the sequins; the silly crafting sentiment is a rubber stamp from Viva Las VegaStamps.



Inspiration/Challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: (Wed) 2 or More Patterned Papers

Moony Unicorns -- Recycling at International Art and Soul

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge our challenge is Recycle. My recycled item is the blue mesh bag that our Christmas pearl onions came in. They took forever to peel, but Mom cooks them with molasses & orange juice and are a delicious holiday tradition.


Mom also gifted me these beautiful Graphic 45 papers and moon-themed & sentiment die sets. Of course I couldn't wait to use them all!

I made a double shaker: The moon & stars die-cut is over acetate, and is also underneath a layer of acetate. There are gold stars under the moon, and blue sequins (and 2 unicorns!) above it. This wasn't as time-consuming as it sounds; I used die-cuttable adhesive foam & acetate. I adhered the blue mesh, which I cut into a frame, with glitter glue. The words are die-cut from a very shimmery gold paper; this photo doesn't do it justice! 

I finished the card with a Birthday sentiment and some decoration to the inside:
