MFT Blog Hop and Shop!


Yeah.....It is release day at My Favorite Things! SOOOO many sweet things this month and I am really pleased with the little journal I get to show you today!
First off, blog hop info...
If you have come here from Lisa's you are hopping along just fine...If you are a regular visitor of my blog you might want to start at the beginning of the hop which is Kim's blog.
I get to show you a darling new Die-namic Die called "Sheltering Tree and Leaf Trio"! This is the same tree from the fabulous Stephanie Fizer set "Sheltering Tree". So now I have the stamp and a wonderful die to match! I used them both on my project below....plus the newest Fred Bear as well!
We are going to be going camping and I thought this tree was perfect for the little journal I was making.....we are going to camp in the wonderful redwood forest in Oregon, those trees are no short of spectacular!
I stamped a little scene, first by stamping my new Fred Bear and then masking him off to stamp the trees from the "sheltering tree" set. My last tree was the tree die and leaves which I cut from MFT's felt.....like buttah!
Here is a close up of my scene, colored with my copics. I also used my airbrush system to give my background trees just a hint of color.
Now that you have seen my project...the next stop is Michele's Blog! She always has something fabulous to show off....I totally admire her sense of pattern and color....yup, she rocks! Enjoy!
