Good Morning Sunshine...

Happy Monday! We have a new challenge for you up on the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge blog.

From soft buttery yellow to electric neon - this week we challenge you to be inspired by yellow!

When I think of yellow, I think of sunshine. And, when I think of sunshine, I think of morning time. 

As you can see from the photo below... morning person, I am indeed not!
So... let's scrap a page about that!

First up, a bit of yellow ink to smooshy about the page:
likey so...
And now for some stencil and modeling paste action. I chose this stencil because it reminds me of a sunshine...
With that mostly dry, it's time to have fun layering up some bits...
And squishing things into place...
Perhaps some more sunshine is in order?
And with the usual finishing touches of journaling, doodles, and pen lines...
There we have it!
I had more fun pressing all of those little bits into the modeling paste!
And I do think this is a fun thing to include in the album as well!

So... now it's your turn! Go get crafty and link-up with us!

  17. Love your use of the modeling paste with that particular stencil and I think it's fantastic that you celebrated your own non-enthusiasm for mornings! Such great honesty and it really reminded me of the importance of journaling the good, the bad and the ordinary. I adore not only your art, but also the fun and insightful topics you choose to journal about.

  18. Darned good morning if you ask me!
