CHA Sneak Peeks Day 3

The Impression Obsession team is showcasing some new images being introduced this week at CHA! You can visit the I.O. Blog each day this week for links to the previews. Be sure to leave a comment on our designers' posts throughout the week for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate daily from Impression Obsession!


 Today's project goes along with my tutorial over at Splitcoast today - it's a mini ATC book made from a single sheet of cardstock.


To decorate the pages, I used my new clear set called Maya, which was inspired by the words of Maya Angelou.


 Each page features a different artist trading card, watercolored with Distress markers and accented with a little silver paint.


 The base was made with a full-sheet gel print from my stash.

  78. Amazing! Dina, your art amazes Me. I have some large foral images and I don't use them because they are massive and for me, would have to be filled in. LOL I know, it's just me, the one who completes. I love how you filled this large flower loosly and let it speak for itself. I know the brain only needs the impression of being complete to feel complete. I know this. But my nature is to fill in, be full, be complete. I love this sentiment, You are Enough, it's so comforting. I won my first amazing IO products this past Summer and my wish list is soooo long. LOL Love their beautiful stamp images!

  79. I just love this gorgeous project! Not only the ATC bok, but the gorgeous blue flowers!
