Guest Designer Jess in the house!...

Hello Farm fans and Happy Monday!!
Guest Farmer Jess here and I am over the moon ecstatic to be spending some time on the farm with the lovely and talented Farm Ladies and the uber cute Anyas, Chibis and Creepers.

I began my crafting adventure a few years back after a friend convinced me to go to a scrapbooking party. I was thoroughly against it at first but after visiting the craft stores several times, I could no longer resist and I gave in. heheh. I wanted to preserve my pictures and memories in a fun and colorful way and I became a Cricut girl. However after being on blogger, I came across digi and rubber stamps. I quickly became enamored because they reminded me of the days of when I enjoyed coloring and creating my mini pieces of art. Now after a year, I consider myself a true bonafide stamping girl. I do still own my cricut machine and I still love it and create projects with it but it is rare. I now first turn to my prismacolor pencils (my medium choice) and my purple envelope (this is where I keep images printed out or stamped ready to be colored).

As I said, when I first came on blogger I was a cricut gal but what lured me over to digis and stamps was The Greeting Farm. I came across their Wonderland Digi Set and I knew there and then that I was in love. In honor of that I decided to showcase a project featuring this set.

I, like many of you, am a HUGE fan of Wonderland. I just love everything it stands for. Granted, I may never fully understand it and always wonder why a “Raven is like a writing desk”, however I will enjoy using images such as these to create artwork that allows me to spend and relish my time down the rabbit hole. I also chose to create a project that featured digital stamps because I love the versatility of them and I wanted to show it to you.

The versatility of the digis allowed me to blow up the mushrooms many times over so that I may get the effect of the giant mushrooms. I also shrunk the Alice and the white rabbit to add the scene I created.

Here is my final product. It is an altered picture frame that will be used in a scrapbook.

Here’s an extra project I wanted to show you featuring the white rabbit. I created this a while back but I thought I would throw it for fun. It’s actually a large embellishment I created for a scrapbook page that is about me. Although I’m embarrassed to admit this here, I can be like the white rabbit (in this case a black bunny) and run a bit a late, late, late from time to time. Lol.

Thanks for letting me share a little bit of me and I hope you pop over to my blog and peruse My Scrap Diary.

Oh heavens, this is stunning! What a great sample of how versatile Marie's digis can be - the overlapped mushrooms are an amazing scene for Alice! Beautiful job on the clock, I too am late late late often, much to my military husband's horror. ;)

Just darling! I love the change in perspective with the larger-than-life mushrooms. Wonderful stuff!

Love this Jess...from the super sized mushrooms to the mini bright and vibrant! I love having you as our guest this month!

Wow - your work is just STUNNING. I totally LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, your frame and your clock is too cute. I haven't seen the newest Alice in Wonderland movie, but now I want to - just because of seeing how inspired you were with TGF Wonderland stamps. I love your coloring - and your "purple envelope" - too cute. I have been a purple girl since I was a little, little girl (now in my 40's). Thank you so much for sharing.
