Adornit and MPC Art Play Blog Hop

Good morning everyone - welcome to my stop on the Mountain Plains Crafters & Adornit blog hop! You should be arriving here from my dear Pam's blog. If you stumbled in here by accident this chilly October morn, you can see what all the fuss is about on the Adornit page.

I have to tell you, these ArtPlay 12x12 pages are so much fun! If you've never held one before, they're made of super thick watercolor paper and work beautifully with every medium I threw at them. Of course, I made the 'mistake' of bringing them to my weekly scrapbooking group and had to keep stealing them back!! LOL

In the end I created four different projects using Spectrum Noirs, Copics, Distress Markers, and Koi Watercolors. Since there are four artists who designed for this release, I couldn't resist using one from each of their sets. I cannot wait to color some more of these bad boys!

I just love how these turned out! As you can see, it's no problem to die cut the pieces or add wet things like watercolors and Glossy Accents to them with no warping. And hey, coloring is therapeutic!

Time for me to send you off to Sheryl's blog, but before you go, what's a hop without prizes, right? Here's your clue from me:

Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Crafting!
