Greetings, bloggy friends! It’s the last Wednesday in May, so that means it’s time for the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! This month, I chose “Banners” for the theme. I thought this was a pretty simple one, as so many of the Bombshell sets come with really rad banners. The participants could also make their own banners…or if they really felt like being creative, to make a banner as their project. I decided to try something kind of new. Instead of making a card, or a scrapbook page…I made a mini 6×6 layout, with no photos. I think that I will make a whole book of these mini pages. It’s not really art journaling, and not exactly scrapbooking…but it’s fun, and I like it…so there ya go!
Let me start iff by saying that the yellows look rather garish in my photos, but I promise, they look much better in real life. And the tones of my background paper are a bit brighter in real life too. For my mini page, I used Mermaid Treasure, Homeward Bound, and Ahoy Sailor (the little ship wheel).
I colored all of my elements with Spectrum Noir and Copic markers. I just love putting the ship with that mermaid. They go so well together. I have 2 banners on my mini page. The “Homeward Bound” banner, and one that I made with a Spellbinders die. I spelled out “sail” with a clear stamp set I have.
I used one of my favorite Dreamweaver Stencils, the Houndstooth background. I am entering this mini page into their current challenge, which is “Tiny Treats.” You can get all of the deets about that challenge HERE. I also used a fabulous bead/sequins mixture that Kathi gave me, for added texture…along with some corrugated cardstock. That’s it for me! Below is the full hop list. Happy hopping!
