Make the Most of It – Art Journal page for SWAT

For my take on the SWAT drill #14 sketch with a twist (stickers NOT Thickers), I decided to create an art journal page. I managed to use 17 different stickers on this single page not including the alphas. Most of them are from Simple Stories, but the one border strip sticker is by My Mind’s Eye. Here’s what I came up with:

Drill #14 sketch:



Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists
Modeling paste
Course pumice gel
TCW stencil
7 Dots Studio paper
My Mind’s Eye journaling cards and border sticker
Simple Stories stickers and alphas
Pitt Artist marker


Scotch ATG

Making Faces – dt layout for SWAT drill #13

SWAT’s drill #13, our first challenge for August, is all about trendy triangles! Use this trendy geometric shape anywhere on your page or project in any way you’d like, in as many ways as you’d like, then link it up on the SWAT sidebar for your chance to win a $20 gc to 3 Scrappy Boys!

For my example, I used a triangle stencil by Prima, handcut paper triangles (I started with squares, then cut them in half diagonally) and burlap cut into triangles for a banner. Here’s what I came up with:


7 Dot Studios papers
burlap from my stash
Krylon webbing
Liquitex white acrylic ink
flexible modeling paste
4 different washi tapes
October Afternoon mini market alpha stickers
Pink Paislee Cushies alphas
Prima flowers
Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pen Big Brush markers
Prima stencils
