Awesome Ladies Project: What Does Your Ideal Day Look Like?

Hey Guys!  I have another page to share with you today from my Awesome Ladies Project album!  I have been having so much fun being on the Creative Team!  I'm so excited to share my pages here with you guys.  I think it will be a fun way for you guys to learn more about me :)

If you would like to sign up for the class you can Click Here to learn more!  The class has weekly questions and creative prompts to help you document your awesome lady self! This week our question was "What Does Your Ideal Day Look Like?" and our creative prompt was "ombre."

This is my completed page.  I did a lot of messy playing to create the background for this page because that is what my ideal day would be!  A whole day locked up in my craft room playing with different techniques and getting my hands all inky!  I used a photo of my desk while I was playing with March's Paper Pumpkin Kit, watching YouTube videos and drinking coffee :)  
Mmmm.... heaven!

I started with a 6x8 sheet of watercolor paper and I created an ombre watercolor wash using Bermuda Bay ink.  Then, I used a stencil from the Happy Patterns Decorative Mask set (which is retiring and is now 50% off!)  First, I stenciled using a sponge dauber and White Craft pigment ink.  Then, I moved the stencil sightly and stenciled again using another sponge dauber and Bermuda Bay ink.  I tried to keep the ink heavier on the top and lighter on the bottom to give it an ombre effect.  I also didn't bother to stencil the center area because that is where my photo was going.

Here is a closer look at my journaling.  It is so hard to carve out "me time," but so important!  We all try to do so much and care for the needs of so many and so often we forget to care for ourselves.  Even when I was writing the words on my page, I felt selfish.  I have to remind myself that it is ok to want something just for me.  Sometimes some crafty time alone can be just what I need to recharge and be a better me.  For myself and everyone I care for.

This is my completed page in my 6x8 Kraft Album.  I'm loving my choice to do a mini album for my Awesome Ladies Project Pages.  I thought about keeping it in our Family Project Life album, but I'm glad I decided to keep it separate and really love how it is kind of turning into a personal journal.

If you would like to purchase any of the products that I used for my page today, I listed them below with links to my online store.

As a Creative Team Member I am able to share my love for Memory Keeping with others.  I love to encourage others to document their lives and this class is a great place to start!
