I'll tell you what's up at my house - it's a new little puppy named Walter! And he is the star of my What's Up Wednesday project I'm sharing with you today. I know you will get a kick out of this.
When I went to the CKC convention in Houston, I was able to attend a class on Smashbook (you tube video here). Have you caught on to this latest craze? It is fun fun fun! I like to scrapbook, but don't always have time to do a full layout and a Smashbook is scrapbooking but it can be anything you want it to be. I like it because I can still use it to record memories in a quick / less formal way, and yet, I can do so much more. People are using them for recording daily life, ideas, thoughts, quotes, magazine finds, you name it. So, without any further ado, I introduce Walter!
Something else that made this process so fast was, of course, the stamping. I pulled out my Art Textures stamps, and several colors of Jenni Bowlin ink, and started layering the stamps. Also, in this image, you can see the use of one of the Scriptures stamps in the top left hand corner created by Liz Allen, and the Solid Whimsical Alphabet used to spell out Walter's name.
I wanted to show pictures of the TV characters Walter is named after, so I used the Window set to stamp the window frame on patterned paper, and added the images to the frame for a perfect mat. I grabbed a good writing pen, and started writing and "lickity split", I was done!
If you don't have a Smashbook, no problem. Think about creating a mini book on any theme you like. They are small, fun, fast, and like a Smashbook, can be anything you want them to be.
That's What's Up this Wednesday. I hope you find time to put on your paper wings and get creative!
