Webster's Pages May Challenge: Stickers~!!

Good morning, my friends! Thanks to all of you who took part in the C'est Magnifique Blog Hop this past weekend- what fun! Stay tuned over the next couple of days for the winner of my RAK ;)

Today I'm giving you a little insight to and head-start on the May Challenge over at the Webster's Pages InspireME site: Stickers!! I think we all- at least in the beginning of our scrappy careers- have been associated with stickers at one point or another. I must admit- stickers terrify me a bit, haha! They're permanent little buggers- and hard to move! So I've learned that if I use them, I first mount the on cardstock or other paper first, cut around- and use them that way :).

I have some inspiration for you to get your ideas going for this challenge, featuring the happy & fresh Sweet Notes collection! 

"This Wonderful Life Makes Me Happy"
This is the first time I've had the pleasure of working with this collection and I just LOVE it~!! Yet another photo of my daughter on Easter- I was again worried about being able to get it scrapped in color as I don't generally scrap such bright colors. But Sweet Notes was a perfect match! Gotta love that :)

The Sweet Notes Collection Pack comes with a 12"x12" alpha & sticker tag sheet just filled with lots of little goodies like this adorable "love notes" tag and heart sticker. I've fussy cut the other designs and layered them all for a custom embellishment :).

I've applied the same idea here, but this time I've used the green sticker as my base. You can also see that I've torn some strips of washi tape to add some bits of color to the background. And isn't that resin blue bird just the prettiest?!

This project was created on canvas. I tore apart some dictionary pages and glued them in layers over the entire canvas. Then I covered the whole thing with gesso before adding bits of masking, embossing, stamping, and mists. Fun!

I've used the adorable Bubbly Background stamp in a few different colors throughout the canvas. The "this wonderful life" part of my title was cut from the Modern Romance Sentiment Stickers, and the "makes me happy" part is another from the Sweet Notes sticker sheet.
