Halloween Riddles TP Roll tag album

I am so honored to have been selected to participate in the May Arts/Helmar “Ink It!” Craft Challenge! I was sent 4 different gorgeous May Arts trims to work with and the only rules to the challenge were to ink them up any way I wanted! I was also provided with a small bottle of my favorite adhesive for trims, Helmar 450 Quick Dry.

For my entry, I decided to create a tp roll tag album with Halloween Riddles for my kiddos, using several products from May Arts “Partners in Craft” and Helmar “Preferred Partners” (these partners are noted in the materials section below the pics). Here’s what I came up with:

Every Wall is a Door Art Journal Page for SKWAD September Inspiration Challenge

Each month, Scrapbook Kits with a Difference offers 2 challenges. One is an Inspiration challenge and the other is a lovely sketch. For the challenges, you can choose to create a scrapbook layout, card, mixed media project, altered art, etc. You are welcome to create whatever you’re inspired to make! 😀 For the Sept. Inspiration Challenge, I decided to go with an art journaling page. I saw the door, the pink wall, the bricks, and took it in another direction. I had trouble deciding which quote to use. I had narrowed it down to either “Every wall is a door” by Ralph Waldo Emerson or “Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door” by Coco Chanel. Both had their merits, but they send different messages. Since Tracy Weinzapfel is the artist who first got me interested in starting to art journal, I put it to a vote in her facebook group. The Emerson quote won unanimously and I’m glad. I like the positive wording better than the more negative approach of the other quote. Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Watercolor art journal
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos
F-C Design Memory Craft PITT artist pens
F-C Design Memory Craft Big Brush Stampers pens
Webster’s Pages Storytellers Alphas
Stazon ink
Unity Stamp Co stamps
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist
Prima Mask
