Welcome to The Play Date Cafe's Challenge #72!
Our sponsor, for this week, is Wilson Designs....
with an Everything's Owlright stamp set prize for one, talented winner.  How fun!
Oh, my gracious!  I cannot tell you all how much the above graphic, completely, inspired me!  I, even, went out and purchased a few, new paints just for this project.  Check it out!
I started, this layout, by painting the Whisper White, cardstock, layout base with Peach Foam, acrylic paint.  I, then, mixed Red Apple and Ballet Pink, acrylic paints together to get the deep, coraly-pink color and painted it, over the Peach Foam, right down the center of the layout.  A little Winter White, acrylic paint, was, also, mixed in, just to soften the whole look a bit.  The entire layout was, then, spritzed with Jack Frost Glimmer Mist, before I cut the center of my fabric, circle sun; layed it in the center of the layout, over all my painty, spritzy goodness; gave it a few, randomly-lengthed, fabric rays; and machine stitched it all down with blue-threaded, zig-zag stitches.
After adhering pictures, I created my title work from a stamped, in Basic Black ink, "you are my sunshine", partial title...
and blue, black, white, and, even, polka dot, alpha, sticker, "even When UR FEELING blue" completed title.
A hand-written, in Basic Black ink, November 29, 2007 date; "People seem to get nostalgic about a lot of things they weren't so crazy about the first time around", cardstock, sticker subtitle; and a stamped, in Rose Red ink, on Whisper White cardstock, bird, which was, also, embellished with a black, crystal eye; hand cut out; and adhered, with dimensionals, perched atop the subtitle sticker, complete the look.
That's all, from here, for today, but I'm sure that my design team mates have lots of scrumptious, papercrafty creations in store for you all.  So, please, be sure to stop by their blogs.  Then, you have until Tuesday, March 15, at 11:59 pm EST, to link up your entries.  Have fun, and until next time, have a blessed week!

Jinny; You are a professional! I can not express how happy I am to have found your blog and how grateful I am to soak up some of your gorgeous inspiring artwork! I have never used paint or fabric before on a layout ... but I'm feelin' pretty inspired! I love that you share layouts too as I have gotten really caught up in card making lately and am trying to focus on scrapbooking this year. It's great to see your fabulous ideas and pages. Thank YOU! Your new biggest fan, Michele :)
