disclaimer: family this is not an SOS call for our lovely and fabulous sister Rhonda, if so I would spell correctly
I believe that everyone in our life is there for some reason or purpose and I know the ‘Big Girl in the Sky‘ put the lovely Ronda Palazzari in mine for pure inspiration and encouragement. Slowly but surely, after each scrappy time together a little of Ronda rubs off on me and my pages get better. Here are a couple that definitely have that Ronda feel.
I was lucky enough to have Ronda right next to me as I was working on the one above, it was almost done just a little something — more bling and some loopies.
and this one I just finished yesterday, Ronda is the queen of paint and mixed media. Her’s always turns out looking perfect, mine not so much…but luckily for me along comes a tutorial on the SC Blog by Jenn O on turning splotches into digital brushes. Jenn posted her samples on her blog to the share with the world and I am ever so grateful.
the purple block, the darker blue splotches and the grey circles are all digital art. I sprayed a little glimmer mist on top for some contrast and a little something else. I think I’ve mentioned before that Ronda is responsible for my obsession with this wonderful product. Before meeting Ronda I think I had 3 bottles (and one was a sample from CHA) and now, well thank goodness for Tattered Angel’s fairies and Archiver’s coupons because the bottle count is probably close to 20.
Another fun note about this layout even though you can’t really tell from the photo, the purple strips at the top and bottom as well as the tape holding pick and ticket are actually the same PP tape. You can sand the pink paislee tape and a little of the design will show through — so fun
