Guest Designer Spotlight At Colorful Creations

I am excited to announce that I have a Guest Designer spot over at Colorful Creations!! They offer up all kinds of challenges and all the DT are super sweet and friendly. They host a Guest Spotlight where they supply a sketch, mine was a FAB one created by Jenessa France, and the GDT works with the sketch for inspiration and then the members and DT play along. If you love a great sketch and are looking for a fun spot to hang out and play along with some challenges, then I hope you will join me over there! My spot  runs from February 10th to February 24th, so stop by and say hello~

Here is my take on the sketch featurring a photo of my son, Draven when he was around 2 1/2 lounging and sipping on his juice. I used the amazing Scraps Of Darkness January Kit-Waterways  and Add Ons to pull it off.


I used lots of distressed and punched layers to create this look. 


The star was hand drawn and fussy cut out of 3 different layers that were hand painted. All the layers were attached with foram tape for lots of dimension.


I got this textured look by taking corrugated board painting it with some Lumiere paint and then putting it into  a Pink Paislee frame and added on lots of Pink Paislee Ephemera pieces, a metal clock, and some oversized painted and inked up hands.



I loved all the puzzle pieces and ephemera pieces in this month's SOD  package. So perfect  for pulling off masculine layouts without a flower in sight!!



Here you can see the detail work of all the stamping I did, Plus all the stenciling and painting I did on the Pink Paislee Ribbon.

Thank you Colorful Creations for having me as a Guest Designer, and thank you to all the DT and members for making me feel at home~ Renea
