My Summer Vacation ~ Inspiration Emporium

[Ahhhh…I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth! LOL Since getting back from CHA, life has been busy. I spent quite a bit of time with family, focusing on the wonderful things that I often forget to do. Yep…I stopped and smelled the roses…in doing so I inadvertently unplugged myself from everything, evaluated a few things in life, including lifestyle and re-energized. (I’ll tell you more about that later.) In doing so, I’m behind on a few things but am catching up with a renewed outlook and energy.]

Remember the first day of school back where one of your first assignments was to write an essay about your Summer Vacation? Over at the Inspiration Emporium, there are no essays just wonderful crafty goodness projects! There’s still time to get your Summer Vacation/Travel related project in to be included in August’s monthly challenge for a chance to win $50 in Emporium Dollars.

Here’s my travel inspired project!


I just LOVE travel Anya from the Greeting Farm and since I hadn’t coloured in a little while, she and Copics were calling to me. She makes me smile!

For the background, after I had embossed, I brayered on embossing ink and liberally applied Heat & Stick powder then tapped some off. Heat until just melted and then sprinkled on the glitter. As I had tapped off the heat & stick powder the glitter stuck on only in the areas left and turned out nicely grungy looking. I sponged on antique linen and vintage photo to give it that glam yet old Europe kind of feel.

Be sure to head on down to Inspiration Emporium to pick up your supplies, enter in “Spikealicious” at checkout and receive 10% off!

As always, thank you for dropping in! Have a fantastic weekend!
