Hello Lovelies, today is the Hump day hop and this month Ms. Alison set this theme for us this month!!!

"Paint the Town." I am super excited about this one! Let's break out some paint! Splatter it, brush it on, drip it...just use paint somewhere on your project. And don't forget about all of those fabulous sprays that so many of us own! They count too!

Now I have been doing a lot of art journaling and spraying and spritzing and painting a LOT!!  I always have a roll of paper towels on my table when I am journaling because I use them to wipe up the excess sprays and paints.  Well me being me, I don't like to waste cause honestly that stuff is expensive!!!  So once the paper towels on the roll are saturated I take them off the roll and set them aside to dry then when they are dry I use them on backgrounds like this one:

I used the Till Death stamp set from Bombshell stamps!  

So now head on over to Kathi's blog to see her creation and remember to leave everyone some LOVE!!!

Bombshell Doodles a tutorial

Hello everyone, today I have a tutorial for you!  Way back in march when we were moving and I was down with a bad back I did a lot of these little ATCs that just had one bombshell image and lots of doodling on them because that's all I could do at the time.  So I thought I would give a quick little how to for them...

Here's what you need:  
A Bombshell Stamp of choice (i used All My Heart)
An ATC blank or cardstock cut to 2.5 by 3.5
a doodle pen (i used a sharpie pen and a micron pen)
an imagination

First you need to stamp your image in the center of your ATC.

Now you take your pen and start drawing lines from your image to the outside of your ATC.

Once you have all your lines drawn, and the number you use is up to you, then you start doodling.  Now before I show you the rest please know that doodling is a totally personal thing.  It's what comes from you, you don't need to follow patterns just put the pen in your hand and whatever comes out of it is your doodle!!!
SO start doodling!

and doodle some more

and some more

Until you have filled up each and every space you made when drawing your lines.  You want to try and not use the same pattern on one ATC unless that's what you want!

Have fun and make some wonderful creations!!!
