i puffy heart hannah lynn stamps at Crafts and Me!

Ok, so when I saw found out there were going to be FOUR new Hannah Lynn digital stamps released at Crafts and Me I literally refreshed my page over and over until I knew they weren't going to be released before my eyes absolutely shut on me from exhaustion (darn time difference)! LOL That is how excited I was! I absolutely LOVE the hannah lynn stamp line at Crafts and Me. She designs what I love, Fairies, Mermaids, all those mythical beautiful creatures that are just so much fun to color. I scoped her out on google and found out that she also has a VAMPIRE line of art that I'm secretly hoping becomes stamps some day!

So, there are FOUR new images and I had the hardest time choosing just one for today. I acutally stated coloring 3 of them, but only 1 made it to the final result.

Introducing: Strawberry Surf. I love how her hair covers half her face - so Jessica Rabbit-ish, yes? I used to LOVE that movie when I was a kid! LOL

I made myself a journal for an online class I'm taking called Soul Restoration by Brave Girls. It's been pretty interesting and I knew I wanted to make my journal pretty so what better way to decorate than with my favorite papers - Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime, lace, pearl flourishes, glitter and a beautiful Hannah Lynn stamp! It's fun to step out of the card making zone every once in awhile! During this class I'll probably be doing a lot of mixed media art and learning more about that so I hope to be able to share that here with you as well! I've been having a ton of fun with it already! A lot of it will be personal but I know I will be using the techniques to share other works with you as I learn & grow.

Here is a close up of all the pretty embellishments. I used Helmar Acid Free glue to adhere the paper to the composition notebook before useing mod podge over top. I used Helmar 450 Quick dry on the Prima Sculpture flowers (oh my gosh, these flowers are SOOO yummy_ and the crochet flower & button.

I hope I have inspired you and you can find all Crafts and Me newly released digital stamps HERE - we've got some new backgrounds, new Sara Burrier and of course the new Hannah Lynn's! Happy Shopping! :D
