Technique Junkies Blog Hop - Love that Face!

Good Morning and Happy August, Junkies!!  I know we have reached the Dog Days of Summer, but can't you just feel Fall right around the corner?  Well I can and what better way to bring in  August than a blog hop.  The Technique Junkies team is hosting a blog hop to share all the new exciting August Releases with you.  So join us today as we hop into August and showcase all the new goodies.  Don't forget to to visit each team members blog in order not to miss any of the fun.  If you  haven’t started at the beginning, please visit the Technique Junkie Designer Blog ( so you are sure to catch it all!

You've just seen Judy Jackson's project and isn't her work just awesome?!?!  She uses such soft touches of color with her projects and creates some really gorgeous cards.

Here is the hop participants in order:
I wanted to use the new gorgeous release, Let's Face It 5 and it worked perfectly with one of the extra-large tags.

I sprayed the tag with Art Anthology Colorations in Waimea Bay, Heart, and Salted Caramel.  Next I stampd Let's Face It 5 on a piece of cardstock and cut it out.

Her face is painted with a mix of Art Anthology Kona and Portobello Velvet, her turban is Tango and Fiji Velvet, eyes are Sunshine and Mint Julep Sorbet, and her lips are painted with Desire Velvet.  I wrapped a piece of orange cord through a Word Band and tied it off in back and added a few rubons.  Lastly, I strung several pieces of fiber through the hole and called it done.

Love the new August releases?  Well they are currently on sale for 15% off through next week!   Go to click on August 2015 Releases.
