Create Dreams Layout - Donna Salazar Designs

Hi everyone, today I have a little 8x10 layout to share with you!  This one is of a favourite photo from when I was in New York... I was so very happy there, loved that city and loved one very special person I got to meet while there.  


Today I have used Donna's Mix'd Media Inx, not only to stamp, but also to alter the colour of a flower, some ribbon and to make some 'ink' splotches.

It was so easy to do with the reinker, just a few drop with some water in a small mister bottle or dropper bottle and you have your own perfectly matched colour spray.  If you don't have the re-inker, then the ink pads are definitely juicy enough to blot onto a craft sheet and add some water.  The wonderfully pigmented ink creates colour that goes a long way!

Thanks for stopping by today!  See you again soon...

Smile Wall Hanging... Donna Salazar Design

Hi again! Today I have  cute little hanging to share with you all.  This originally started out as a card, but I kept adding layers and somehow it became a little hanging!

I love these little 'hangings', they are fun to make and I like to challenge myself to use only the things left on my desk after finishing a layout.  Mind you, since I drag out enough stuff to complete 20 layouts while working on one, it does leave me lots of choice LOL.  I've cut out some of Donna's little clouds from her Fun and Funky Cutout Sheet, as well as one from the Family Jeans collection. 

The ribbon was originally white and was 'dyed' using Donna's Denim Mix'd Media Inx for a perfect match.  Once it's dried with a heat gun the colour doesn't run, love it!

I also stole Donna's idea of feeding paper strips through my Dymo labeller... handy since I ran out of tape!  I love the soft subtle look of it.

And I know I've done them before... but I've done another Brick Wall Tutorial for you!  This one was created on the mulberry paper from Donna's Mix'd Media Stax and the soft paper gives it a whole different look I feel.  Brick Wall on Mulberry Tutorial HERE. {PDF Download through}

Thanks for visiting today, I hope you find the tutorial useful!
