Week 2 of the PSL

Well, we're deep into week 2 of the PSL over at Club Scrap and I've got the digi bug going this week. Doing some layouts of our hike up the Stuart Fork River last summer.  This one is of a beautiful mossy spring that is about 2 miles into the hike and a great place to stop for a drink and a snack. I used Written Word, Gratitude and Memoirs digi kits from Club Scrap.
 We were inundated with a butterfly hatch at our first campsite (about 5 miles in). This one uses Pure & Simple, Written Word, Papillon and the ribbon cluster was a prize in one of our earlier PSL events.
                                                                              I hiked in a sketch book and some watercolor pencils this time and had a great time capturing some of the wonderful images along the way. This one is of the rock in the middle of the river that Roger is sitting on in the layout below. The layout uses Lodge, Castaway and Fossils papers with a Castaway ribbon.

                                                                         Here is Roger, lounging on the rock and playing ball with Cinder. As you can see Gus, is nowhere to be seen as he is afraid of the water. I used Lodge papers and a Navajo ribbon frame cluster for this one and a quote from the Sonoma kit.

Squirrel Girls Challenge: Pencil Resist

Nancy Young's Squirrely Art blog hosts a group called the Squirrel Girls. She graciously invited me to join the group this month and so I've jumped in with my first Squirrely challenge post. This week's challenge is the Pencil Resist technique from the December 2012 issue of Technique Junkies. Really fun and such cool results.
the first three use the beautiful Lotus stamp from Club Scrap's Lotus Pond kit, with different color schemes. This one uses pink and green pencil with Chipped Sapphire, Tattered Rose and Broken China distress inks.
this one uses a little brighter green pencil and pink for the lotus, plus Dusty Concord, Broken china and Tattered Rose distress inks.

This one is my favorite so far with teal fuschia pencils and Broken China, Tattered Rose and Wild Honey distress inks.
And last, I tried one of my favorite stamps from one of my first kits from Club Scrap, Art Deco. Love the bright colors in this one and the Peeled Paint, Broken China and Victorian Velvet inks.

Thanks for inviting me to join the Squirrel Girls, Nancy, this was fun!!!!
