Summer is here and so is our June Make ART Challenge!!  And how about Wendy's beautiful art journal page? I LOVE it...stunning! Can you guess what this month's challenge is going to be from looking at Wendy's project? Well...before we get on to the challenge, let's recap the challenge rules:

This month's sponsor is...eclectic Paperie!  eP will be awarding one winner, chosen from a random drawing, a prize Wendy goodies, including her latest products!
And now on to the challenge!

....This month's challenge is to use EMBOSSING POWDERS on your project....

And be sure to try out some of Wendy's beautiful new embossing powder colors...perfect for summer! Show us how you use embossing powders in a creative way on your project. We can't wait to see what you create!  
Wait until you hear about how Wendy created her project, shown above:

Did you know that you can use whatever you have on hand to create a stamp? The circle frame shown on Wendy's art journal page was created by inking the bottom of a butter container with watering can archival ink. Simply press & twist on the page to transfer the ink.

The hearts were created with red geranium embossing powder. Just ink a manila scrap with red geranium ink, sprinkle on red geranium embossing powder & heat to melt. Next, use dies or punches to  create custom (perfectly coordinated) embellishments. 

Wendy used gold embossing paste thru the old ledger stencil in 3 areas to add a bit of texture & shine to the background. Stencils are awesome to layer in the background!

Genius! Love the way Wendy's creative brain works... **smile**

Inspired? Now it's your turn to Make ART! We want to see what you create with embossing powders this month. To share, simply add your blog post (please link the specific post instead of your blog name) to the link list below. Once your project is listed, you'll be entered into our drawing. Thanks so much for playing along! 


  1. Wendy's Art Journal page is stunning! Love those beautiful 'pops' of red..

  2. Making that circle frame with the plate was such a genius idea. I'm going to have ink on all my household objects now... :D
