Inky Goodness

Welcome! Thanks for stopping by and indulging my random thoughts on crafting and all things inky and messy. Nothing makes me happier than inky fingers and paint under my fingernails at the end of the day. A little glitter never hurts either. ;) Happy crafting!

Pinks and Yellows

Maybe it's because it's late fall going into winter and I'm missing the brightness of spring, but I'm really into pinks, reds, and yellows right now.  The Sidewalks line from October Afternoon seemed the perfect fit for a layout of our 2 year anniversary photo shoot - bright, fun, cheerful, and happy.  I love buying supplies within a product line.  It makes putting things together a snap!

Pink, red, and yellow goodness
However, just because I used products from a line didn't mean I couldn't still get painty and inky!  I broke out some pink acrylic paint, and stamped a solid shape for the title.  I dressed up chipboard letters and numbers with black ink and some Glossy Accents for a shiny feel to go with the black and white photos. Some swishes of dry brushed pink paint along the yellow panel on the right helped to tie everything together.

Layered flowers with pink acrylic paint and some Glimmer Glam helped to sparkle up the accents.

It's nice to be back in the creative swing of things.

Happy holidays, and happy crafting!!
