Dream Big with Eileen Hull and Stampotique

Hello and welcome!  This month the Eileen Hull Inspiration Team had the chance to play with some stamps from Stampotique.  I decided to create a mixed media mini album using Eileen's Passport Die Book as the base.  The theme:  Dreams!

I started by die cutting mat board and coating both sides with gesso. I used Archival Ink to stamp the Stitched Houses on one of the signature covers. and then started to play with watercolors.

Did you know that Eileen Hull has a line of ink pads with ColorBox?  I used Bay for the aqua color on this house.  I just mixed it on my craft mat with a little bit of water and painted away! I used the same color as a unifying element throughout the mini album.

When all the painting was done I add a sentiment by stamping with Dream Text.

I cut some pages, assembled the signature and started putting the mini album together.

I created 2 more signature covers. In the picture below the right page features the stamps Courting and Grow Your Dreams.  On the left page I created some texture by stamping with the Oodles of Doodles stamp and heat embossing before playing with watercolor.

I used the Dream Catcher stamp on the cover of the mini album and on the front of this signature.

I used a natural twine to tie the signatures into the album and finished it off with a piece of flair!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie
