Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge~Friends 24/7

Hi Everyone,

Today I have tons to do but wanted to play if for just a little while. Sometimes you just gotta play, ya know?

I thought I would start my Monday out with the Mojo Monday Challenge. It looked interesting. Take a peek…

….and here is my attempt at it.

Mojo Monday Freinds 24 7 002

I used some of our new (yet to be released) DSP called Paisley Petals. I’m so in love with this paper. It looks very muted here because of the colors I’ve chosen. I like that you can brighten it up or down…..when paired with Sahara Sand it really does give off those gray/taupe tones. See the little strip at the bottom. I tried to make my own piece of matching dsp by mixing a bit of Always Artichoke re-inker and some water….brused it onto very vanilla and gave it a wash. Then stamped with Sahara Sand and washed again. Still not right I tried a little Pear Pizzazz and it’s better but not quite there…I’ll keep trying. Then I decided to crimp it to age it a bit and straighten it out. So there ya go….my happenings here this morning. Exciting, huh??? Well it was for me…hehe!!!

My bow of course is make using my bow maker and ladies that have written you just wrap the ribbon around one more time before you start the tying procedure on the bow maker….it’s that easy and three times for a triple.  You too can do this.

If you would like to purchase a bow maker just click on this picture and it will take you right there, or just look on my right side bar.
