Fun with Modge Podge

I have had another busy week with it being the School Holidays but I have still managed to sneak away and get a few things made to ease my crafting bug.  Although with my SIL's birthday in a week or so I had the perfect excuse.  She loves pink and pale green so the new collection from KaiserCraft "Lil Primrose" is just perfect for her.  I have been harping on at her that she needs to start sending me her pictures as she draws adorable little animals and gorgeous flowers and I think they would make fabulous digital stamps, so give her a little motivation I have made her an Art Journal to put them in.  Once she has a few together I will get her organised to get them into files and start her an etsy shop.

Firstly here is her Birthday card......
I have used a selection of papers from the Lil Primrose 6x6 paper pad, cute frilled Gingham ribbon, prima innocence 2 flower, oval spellbinder nesties, distress ink and a KaiserCraft Lil Primrose stamp all available from Artfull Crafts.
The chipboard is some I won from Kellie's Blog when she was doing a 12 Days Of Christmas giveaway, and the other flowers are from my stash.  I coloured the image with prisma pencils.

I am entering this card in the following challenges...
Annabelle Stamps - Anything Goes
Cardmakin Mamas - Happy New Year
Crafty Catz Weekly challenge - Use Something New
Polkadoodles - Vintage/Retro



Now the Art Journal......
Again I used papers from the Lil Primrose 6x6 Pad.  I fussy cut some flowers from one of the sheets on both the art journal and the card. I used Glimmermist  on the lovely Prima resist canvas (teapot and butterfly), I cut out the label and the word "CREATE" on my cricut. there is 1/4 of a container of modge podge on here too, which is why the project took days instead of a few hours as I had to wait for layers to dry before moving onto the next one.

I am entering my art journal in the following challenges.....
Frosted Designs - Paint
Delicious Doodles - All things new
Fairytale Challenge blog - all things new
Simply Create too - Layers

Well that's me for now, hope you found a little inspiration. xox
