I had recently gotten some happy mail from Unity Stamp Company with the Suzi Blu stamps that I had ordered. I have been wanting some of her stamps for awhile and I was so excited to finally get them. So, I picked out on of her stamps and kept in mind that Paula (a.k.a. Journal Artista) has a stencil challenge going on at her blog right now. I have to tell you that I really struggled with this one for quite a while. It just wasn't going how I wanted it to, I was so tired but so desperately wanted and needed to work in my journal. But, a new day and some much needed sunshine (my mudroom is really dark at night when I work in there!) and I was able to finish this page up and I am really pleased with how it turned out. This is another fine example of how you just have to "work through the uglies" as Paula likes to say. It is so true! You just have to keep plugging away and most important for me, listen to your muse and don't second guess it!
Suzi Blu stamp - Spring Flower Chic colored in w/ chalk pastels and a colorless blender pen
I used two different stencils on this page. A flower one from Prima and "Harlequin" from Crafter's Workshop with some of my Ranger Color Washes. ;-)
I hope you all have a wonderful day!
