Love those Radiant Rains!!!

I have been playing with my Radiant Rains by Luminarte and I am having so much fun. They are rich watercolor based dyes that come in the most luscious colors and color is what I am all about. They make an excellent partner with my wonderfully versatile World Win cardstocks so I really got busy. I have made a few different sheets of backgrounds but the three cards I am sharing are all from one sheet of autumn tones. I am really into red lately and I wanted to see how red I could go. I used Indian Copper, Spiced Pumpkin, Jasper Red, Solar Gold, Yellow Rose and Nutmeg on White Quartz Elan Metallic cardstock from World Win. One I left plain with a spray of black Krylon webbing spray and a touch of spray glitter (no scan does these colors justice and they don't begin to show the depth of the layers of color). Just some paper layering and a small leaf charm is all it needed. The other two I used some gold rub on leaves that I had stashed, more layering and lettering added.
Well, I hope you enjoy. Thanks for looking!

I have been lagging!!

It is time to add something! I have been busy with deadlines and have been ignoring this blog. So here goes. I thought I better show some layouts this time. I haven't done one recently and I really need to do that. I have "issues" with my basement right now (that is where my art studio is) and even though my precious stuff is fine, the plumbing is not. It has been raining constantly here, and we are getting a leak from somewhere. So, my enviroment is not pleasent all the time. I do what I have to do to fulfill my commitments to my design teams and come right back up. Boo Hiss. I shouldn't be so ungrateful. I have lots of fun stuff and this is just a little glitch in the picture. I am so thankful for all that I do have. This problem will be resolved eventually. I think all of this gloomy weather is getting me down. I love a little rain, but this is getting ridiculous!
I will add something that always makes me smile, my grandkids! I have TONS of photos of them that need to be scrapped! Wishing you all (and myself) sunny days.
