GPP Street Team #37 Love Letters

Its GPP Street Team time again. This time Michelle has us working with letters, mainly X and O.  I thought it would be appropriate to post this on Valentines Day so here I am with my pages using the Letters O X. 

This first one I had spray painted the background, its on very thin paper bag that had been sewed into my paper bag journal. I stenciled the letters and then outlined them in white gel pen.

This second one I really had fun with.  I tried using the Ranger Color Wash inks that I have had for some time.  I never really liked them before but this time I had so much fun using them.  I headed to my local craft store for more colors but they no longer carry them.  I hate when that happens.  Now I will have to go online to get some more. I also stenciled stars on this page too and then outlined some of the letters with gel pen.

On this page I also used the Color Wash inks and several layers of stamping and then I added letters using both stencils and stamps. The image is a greeting card and the words  are 'We are the night ocean filled with glints of light' by Rumi.  

I really enjoyed this challenge, it gave me the opportunity to try some new things that I might not have otherwise.  You still have a couple weeks perhaps this is the month you join in with the rest of the GPP Street Team. You can see other entry's here.


  1. Kate, I really like all of these. I've never used the Color Wash inks but I like the results you got with them. I haven't done anything for this GPP Crusade yet but I have some ideas for it.

  2. Kate - great pages. I like how you interpreted the challenge, and tried many different things. Beautiful, subtle colors. I'm with you - can't stand when you get excited by a product and then can't find more. Rrgghh!

  3. Very cool pages. I really like the range of colors you have used. I don't know the color wash inks but seeing your results I wan to try them out now...

  4. Love your backgrounds with stencilling. I never used inks, perhaps now I will.

  5. Beautiful pages! I love the colors and the stenciling.

  6. Lovely pages, Kate...I think the one at the bottom is my fave.

    OH, how I hate when stores stop stocking an item whether it be art or make-up. I hate also when manufacturers discontinue an item, such as a particular shade of lipstick, that I absolutely love. :(

  7. I love these. The animals are beautiful and so are your pages.

    Stopped by from Michelle's Street Team

  8. These are all great. I love your stenciling on the top page. The silver just really makes it. But then I'm a glitter queen.


I love and appreciate receiving your comments.
