My First Challenge!

Hello everyone!!  I’m so excited to share with you a layout I made for my very first challenge!  It is for Jenni Bowlin Studio.

I loved mixing a few of my favorite brights from my stash with Jenni’s vintage inspired products.

I started with some Claudine Hellmuth Studio line gesso on the lovely background paper from Jenni Bowlin Studio’s Wren collection (wheatgrass) and layered the JBS perf. marks clear stamp over it with black ink from Ranger. I also applied Claudine Hellmuth Studio line acrylic paint in a dab of yellow over the JBS alterable micro-dot alphas.

To brighten up the edges of this chipboard frame from Claudine Hellmuth, I used some of the same yellow paint.  I thought this piece worked nicely to bring emphasis to the number seven…the age of my son at the time.  I added real bird feathers, from my own collection, to accentuate the wonderful JBS vellum feathers.

A closer look at one of the beautiful feathers along with some Martha Stewart Crafts baker’s twine and a worded chipboard piece from Claudine Hellmuth.

I really think I like challenges.  They are like  little assignments with the possibilities of prizes!!  Plus, it is a fun opportunity to play with all the wonderful new products out there.   But, really I am just so happy that I figured out how to upload my image to the site ( and make all the correct links…LOL!  Yay…I’m learning!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and keep creating!!!!!
