Lisa Dickinson inspired by Jenni Bowlin

Sixteen by Jenni Bowlin
There's no doubt Jenni has an elegant, timeless style that's inspired many of us!  I adore the way she can effortlessly combine paint, ink, rub-ons and more in creative and unique ways.  On Jenni's page above, she used the Classic Foam Stamps with Weather Vane Paint Dabber to make little homes for all her page elements. Then she stamped the Cabbage Flower over one, and applied the Receipt Rub-on over another to add lines for her journaling.  And how sweet are the feminine touches of a butterfly and Doily Flower?

Inspired by Jenni, I took her cue and used a foam stamp with Fountain Pen ink to create three frames.  I topped them with a rub-on butterfly before adhering my photos.  On the bottom half of the page, I used a bold stripe paper from the new Red & Black Extension IV, and topped it with a thin strip of ruler paper and a red chevron ribbon (all of which are included in November's Papercrafting kit!)  As a final touch, I added a label for my journaling and one of the new flash cards from the Vintage Number Set.

If you're inspired by Jenni as much as I am, hop on over to the Mercantile Forum and take a look at all the challenges the design team has issued for ScrapFest!  You've still got time to create a page for these prompts (pages are due Sunday, October 30, at 3 p.m. CST) and be entered to win a $10 gift card to JBS Mercantile.
