Project life page and card designs

Creating texture on my layout this month was a real highlight.  Have you tried out the Art Anthology Dimensional Gel Paints yet? If you haven't, I strongly recommend giving them a go.  Now that I've tried them, I'm drumming up all kinds of new ideas for ways to use all that yummy texture and color.  I do hope that if you have some projects, you'll share them in the Blue Moon Scrapbooking gallery.

Project Life May designs

I had a LOT going on this month and so Project Life had to take a back burner. However, the Picks made that easy to do. I ended using a lot of the product pretty much 'as is' within the pages. The look is very simplified but I find I really like the look. I'm actually hoping I can teach myself to continue paring down my projects in this way a bit. I have to really resist the urge to pile on the pretties! Wish me luck! Ursula Schneider
