My name is Ana, I am a stay at home mom to two little girls. I live a few miles outside of Washington DC. I have been a member at SC for over a year now. I just love the community, the sketches and the challenges. This is my second term on the team over there. And I think that this term is just going to rock. So if you haven't joined in over there, now is seriously the time to do it.
Now on to the sketch, my creation, and the RAKs involved in the hop.
And now a word about my layout. Every year I do a word of the year. You know, a word that is supposed to help guide you in the upcoming year. Last year my word was "Acceptance." This year my word is "faith." Lately, I have been questioning a lot of things and have found myself on a journey trying to find my place in the universe. I have been reading a lot and even attending church and exploring my faith. So it seemed like a good fit for faith to be my word.
(this layout uses no paper. the base is actually thin cardboard, the back of a 12 x 12 stack of paper. I used crackle paint on it and then misted it and used brushes of distress paint. the wavy line is thick chipboard from technique tuesday. the top piece is white embossed chipboard (I think it is chipboard, it is not grunge board, I don't think) that I purchased from the Ranger/Tim Holtz booth at GASC in June. I inked it with distress ink and glimmer mist. I wanted this page to be very earthy. and I do love how it turned out. then I printed the journaling on a transparency)
So that is my page, now on to the RAKs-there are some that make me drool.
1. For one person who leaves a comment on all the blogs in the hop, they will get the new Spring Market collection from Webster's Pages, including chipboard buttons and twine.
2. For one person who does a layout based on the sketch and posts in the HOP ON section, they will get the Be Mine collection from Echo Park Paper Company.
4. For one new member over the weekend, they will get some new stamps from Unity and Webster's Pages. (image to come soon, we hope)
Now thank you for visiting my page. If you answer the following question in your comment I will enter you to win a party chipboard album from Bo Bunny, with coordinating papers. The question:
What is your word of the year?
So now hop on over to the very talented Holli.
Have a great weekend.
