I'm Paula, an avid scrapbooker with 2 nearly grown sons. I have been scrapping for about 17 years & decided that I would like to share my love & talents for it with others. I created 'Precious Pages by Paula' to do exactly that. There is a line of pre-designed scrapbooks & frames, as well as doing custom one-of-a-kind albums with your photos. Cards are prayerfully made in the hopes of carrying special blessings to their recipients.

WELCOME TO WEEK 1 OF SUMMER OF COLOR 2013
Today started another session of Summer of Color challenges. I had done it last year and really enjoyed it. You can create absolutely anything as long as you use the color palette provided for the week. Our first prompt for 2013 is the color combo of Citron Green and Turquoise. I opted to work on an art journal page as well as 2 small canvases. I will first show you the art journal work: Step 1 was done using reinkers that I added to spray bottles of water and misted my page.
Step 2 I gathered some of my Crafters Workshop Templates and the inkpads and blending tools and went to town moving them all over the page randomly.
For Step 3 I searched for a quote I liked and added that to the page using my favorite black Pitt pen and an assortment of letter stickers.
and now to add some finishing touches and texture and embellishing!
Step 4 I added dimensional pearls and stickles and drizzled reinkers. Next I took the Donna Salazar crackle stamp with black archival ink and stamped randomly all over the page. Finally I added some Sassafrass chipboard button flowers and some fabic flowers that I inked to match with coordinating button centers.
