A little PageMaps Fun!


Hello everyone! It's been a while since I've done a PageMaps Monday to kick off some creativity in your week and -- well -- my feet are back under me now and I am going to start this back up again. How does it work? Easy! I just head on over to the PageMaps.com site, click on CardMaps and then -- have at it! There are HUNDREDS of sketches there to inspire!

So, I picked one from the April CardMaps selection this time and here's a peek at the sketch!


And here's a peek at my card! I have been playing around lately with using decorative papers as a base for my main image. I thought if I stamped this beautiful floral from Power Poppy's Azalea set on pink decorative paper, I could accent with some splashes of white. Originally, I was going to have it all shades of white. Well, after I pulled down the Prismacolor Pencils, I couldn't just stop with white! I added a splash of rose and lime too. And, why stop there? Grab the Molotow White Paint Pen and dot on some accents too! Underneath my image I used R81, R83 and RV00 Copic Markers to add some shading. The sentiment is also from the set and I just added it thanks to a 1-1/4" circle punch and some foam tape. I also accented the word "Always" thanks to the R81 marker. Add some bling and a fun Spellbinders border die called A2 Scalloped Borders Two.  The paper is Alphabet Junction by Carta Bella.

And that, my friends, is it! Want a source of inspiration when you hit your craft room? Grab a cuppa joe and head on over to PageMaps! Within minutes, you'll have sketch ideas and your brain will be swirling with ways to bring them to life! Have a fabulous Monday!
