A work in progress.......

Here's another peek into my sketch book. I found this paper lantern in a magazine and loved the pattern and colors in it. Into the sketch book for future inspiration...! I have this stamp from My Heart Stamps for You - it's from their "Early American" collection, and there are a couple more flowers that go with it that are a bit more paisley looking (they're coming!). I thought it matched the motif in the lantern pretty well. You can see my scribbles there as I matched the colors as best I could with my Prismacolor pencils and a couple Derwent watercolor pencils.

My stamped piece is there on the desk, with some cardstock to match...that's as far as I got last night and this morning (I have 4 kids and homeschool the oldest, we are in full time ministry, and my parents are coming from the States - today!...needless to say sometimes a card may take several days to get together...).......anyway, stay tuned to see how things turn out...not sure when that will be, but I soooooooooo want to use one of Inge's layouts!

Time for breakfast!


  1. This is such a good idea - I can see lots of inspiration coming from this! Glad your folks are on the way, I hope my package for you arrived in time to be included. I can imagine you'll have lots of fun opening all those boxes when you have some quiet time to yourself. God's blessings on your day!

  2. Thanks for the post on my blog! I'm so happy it brought me here to your blog! I love what you are doing with your journal and all the color references. And, so nice to see the post with info about Biblical Impressions. I honestly thought they had gone under. It's nice to see that they are still around.

  3. Look forward to seeing the end product - it's gonna be gorgeous, I know!

  4. Beautiful Colors - what great inspiration!!!
