A Slice of Life!

Happy Mother's Day weekend Everyone! - To all of the beautiful women who WANT to be a Mom, but for some reason or another can't - you are a Mom at heart... To All those who are Mother's, but may be going through a challenging time with your children...To all those who are blessed to be a Mother - I pray a special blessing to all of you - may the LORD grant you peace, love, comfort and strength to get through today. May you find joy in today and this weekend as you celebrate. May the JOY of the LORD be yours today...

Today is Sweet Stop Sketch Day! Welcome! Today, I am sharing a project using lots of FUN toys! I started my project by using the Technique Junkie Newsletter and the technique Zen Stamping.

To paint this SWEET little Slice of Life Peeker from the Sweet Summer's Peekers Collection available at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, I used the SHIMMERY Inspiration Paints. Have you ever used these? They are so creamy, smooth and have just the right amount of shimmer in them! To create the Zen Stamping technique from the Technique Junkie Newsletter, I used the Copic Multi Glitter Pen Set .

Here is this weeks sketch! Come join in on the fun!

Here is how I created some of the fun details on this! I love that with the Silicone Molds (they are so cool!) I can create my own embellishments to coordinate with my projects.
Using the Martha Stewart Garden Silicone Mold and my Crafting Tools, I gently patted the Viva Crystal Gel (Hologram) in the mold. Starting with a small amount and making sure I gently pat down to get inside each of the grooves to catch all of the fabulous details. Marti created a fabulous video HERE on SCACD with great details on how to use the Viva Crystal Gel and Silicone Molds. There are also a variety of colors of the Crystal Gel and other Silicone Molds available HERE.

Allow time to dry - over night or 24 hours. I often make a bunch of these ahead of time and set them aside to color for projects when needed.

Carefully peel out of the mold and there will be some gel that has dried and is stuck to the edges. This easily peels away.

Using a Stipple Brush and the LuminArte Silks in Vaboom Red, I stippled the color on the Silicone Molded flowers and allowed them to dry while I stamped and painted the Slice of Life Peeker .

I then layered all of the card stock using assorted Circle Punches and ran them through the Big Shot with an embossing folder. Susana has such a COOL variety of embossing folders! I adhered the Silicone Molded flowers with Mini Glue Dots.
