jbs mercantile may gallery reveal!

i'm not gonna lie.  the friday trn purchases and redbox rentals and donkey kong shenanigans totally derailed my blogging this weekend.  ooops!  i'm going to have to enter ketchup mode this week!

the jbs mercantile may gallery is live!  check it out!  our guest this month is may flaum, fellow trn enthusiast and painty inky misty scrapper extraordinaire!  there are lots of pretties in the design team gallery.  it's a way versatile spring kit and i spied several easter layouts (including one of my own!).  check it out!

speaking of paints and inks and mists (oh my!), i got a bit messy on this one.  and i dipped into several of the kits to do it.  the background is a piece of sheet music from the antiquarian add-on.  the "brick wall" was stamped with cough syrup and the may exclusive stamp from the papercrafting kit.  the title was made from the pink paislee wood shop alphabet, also in the main kit.  i rubbed them in my speckled egg ink pad for this layout.  (i adored this alpha set. i've used them on five layouts already and plan on using them at least three more times!  and i loved them so much i bought another set - in a different font - on my little archiver's expedition saturday).  the pennants are heidi swapp's new alterable borders that were in the artisan add-on.  i misted those with chicken feed/lemon drops (mixing in a 1/3 chicken feed to 2/3 lemon drops ratio makes one of my favorite shades of yellow!) and speckled egg.  oh! and you can see i tried some louise nelson dabber splatting with weather vane.  so much fun!
