Prompt: Wacky

This past weekend at our smashing Smash* crop
Holly gave us a prompt for the evening... it was Wacky...
I had literally smashed the background of this page prior, using my new 
Acrylic Dabbers using this technique and had added the Starburst wrappers 
thinking I would do a candy page!

But the colors just screamed WACKY
and so I went to work... Hoping that my toils would win me a small smash* book prize

The pics I happened to have taken with my Ipad on our recent Grand Canyon
trip with mom and dad... they are in "infrared"

I had stamped and painted the kites earlier in the day

using of course my ranger distress inks after stamping and embossing the outline I 
used my paintbrush with a little water and the ink I filled 
in the kites... it gives a cool water color effect

Next I added some of my smash* pad top 10 notecards

I added the washi, made some "Wacky" "Color" tags

Voila! While I don't think it won me a new smash* book (I left before the drawing,) 
it was very satisfying to finish a page
and to use the funky pictures that I thought would never make it into any

Do you have that funky picture that you don't think will fit anywhere??  Are you bold enough
to just go for it??

  1. Diana I love this "wacky" page! It's perfect. And I so enjoy reading your posts. You are one cool gal. I forgot to tell you, although your pages are award winning in my book, Kasey won the prize mini smash book. Bummer for us both huh? I finally got mine all done, I made it a goals page with the words, Dream big, "wacky" ideas, leaps of faith, JUMP! Hugs to you! H


Thank you for all your comments! They are the cherry on top of my sundae!
