April Showers layout. This is a page I created as an example for my Steampunk Challenge. The topic this month is April Showers. The flowers in the claw foot tub are photos of the roses I have in my front garden. I used basic textured green cardstock for the base and distressed the edges and stained them with Distress Stain in Vintage Photo. The floral paper is from Tim Holtz's Lost and Found paper pack. The pipes, tub, and shower head are all images from Internet. The title is made up of two styles of Thickers.
April Showers Close Up 1. I used some rhinestones and Glossy Accents on the flowers and out of the shower to simulate water. I also used various stamps with Vintage Photo and Forest Moss Distress Inks.

Sketch #093 from Twisted Sketches from 3-24-2011. The twist was "swirl," any way.
Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas 2008. Tag #10.
Maria layout. I completed this page using the Twisted Sketches Sketch #093 and for the Grungey Monday Challenge at Studio L3. This page was inspired by Tim Holtz's 2008 #10 Tag. I used a Tattered Angels Glimmer Screen as a mask, Fired Brick, Vintage Photo, and Aged Mahogany Distress Inks, Grungeboard flourishes, Prima Symphony Flowers, Lindy's Stamp Gang Gold Embossing Power, Forever Red Perfect Pearl Mist, Thickers, and a page from my DCWV Immortal Love stack (music paper).
The Color Room Palette #51.
Color Riot layout. This is not my typical style but I thought all the paint splatters were fitting. These are all photos of the colors of our house when we first bought it. All but a few were painted over. I used the sketch from The Color Room that went with the palette and used plenty of paint and Distress Inks in Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Broken China, and Fired Brick. I wet distressed all the paper squares and circle.
Pages in Time Blog Thursday Sketch 3-24- 2011.
Playground layout. This was based on the Pages in Time Blog Thursday Sketch for 3-24-2011. I used Echo Park papers and stickers for this. The photos are of my son playing at the park's playground. I am loving Echo Park papers more and more! I inked the edges of the papers with Distress Inks in Peeled Paint, Faded Jeans, and Spiced Marmalade.
