PaperHaus Halloween

Hello there and welcome. Here is a DT project I made for PaperHaus  I used some older papers by Jenni Bowlin for this.

After the first layer I put some Tattered Angels "Pumpkin Spice" in with my gesso and dipped some bubble wrap in it and stamped. The next layer I added some shiny orange organza ribbon just for a little sheen. I then added a chipboard branch I painted black, then a layer of some lighter purplish paper which I added some Tim Holtz rock candy crackle paint to.

The cheese cloth is dyed black The fence is from Martha Stewart. The resin frame is from Handmade Halo. I made the flower using the tattered floral die. The leaves are made form the tattered leaves die which I then added molding paste colored with peeled paint reinker and scribed a leaf pattern into.
Thank you for stopping by. I truly appreciate it!

Handmade Halo DT project

Hello all!!! I have here today a project we made for a DT challenge at Handmade Halo . There are so many unique products Corinne has to choose from! the challenge was be whimsical and  to alter a resin piece so I used my alcohol inks and paint on the rose. Then since I had the inks out I decided to paint the peacock also. I LOVE that peacock charm. You can find that in the store also. We were also suppose to use another handmade item from another so I took one of my handmade lace flowers and cut it in half to accent the rose.
I also inked and did a resist embossing for the background. I used the summer colored Tim Holtz inks. As always thank you for stopping by.

PaperHaus...another project. "Sweet Son" is another DT project for PaperHaus magazine!!! I used Pion papers for this and added some things that took me out of my comfort zone. Hop on over to PaperHaus...we have some wonderful inspiration everyday!!
in this next pic I used a zipper that I dyed and painted gesso on to stuff the title in. I really liked making this piece. The flower I made of lace and used one of my resin pieces you can find in my etsy store along with the cherry blossoms.

For the title I used wooden letters and dyed them and then added liquid pearls and of coarse some gesso!!
Here in this last picture I did some fussy cutting and used the Tim Holtz gears die for the gears. Had to get a little male look!!!
 This is  picture of my son around 26 years ago. I love it and these papers were just perfect for it.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I truly appreciate it!!

Funtoolas October Kit Reveal

Hello and welcome! I have today my DT projects for the new October kit at Funtoolas . This kit has some gorgeous papers and boy there is a ton of this rich paper!!! With embellies to match you can't go wrong. I made a very simple layout and a card! Here are my projects!
I just did a very clean and simple design this time. This is my daughters quadrille team she was on like 5 years ago. She did this for 3 years and we did travel quite a bit to shows. They did really well and had fun doing it. I haven't thought of a title yet. One of my problem areas in scrapping!!
Now this is more like me. Like to get a little messy when I make something! Here is a card I made. I cut up the lace in the kit to make the flower and I just outlined the flower with a black pen. I stenciled the dragon fly in with gesso and the "hi" is from the alphas that came with the kit.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I appreciate you taking the time to do that!!!

First DT project for PaperHaus!!

Hello and welcome!!! Well here is my first DT project for PaperHaus magazine. I am still thrilled and so excited to be on this fabulous Design Team. We had a sketch by Linda to work with. Usually I tend to start off with good intentions to follow and totally go another way so this was more on track with the sketch!
This is my grand daughter #2 On her first birthday party just a month ago. Here she was watching the big kids running around and just taking it all in. She is the sweetest little heart!!! Here are some close ups.
I absolutely LOVE those Prima zippers!!!! Who ever thought that one up was a genius!!!!
And a couple more to go.
Love the wood pieces toooooo! So much to choose from these days!

This is a corner chipboard that I just painted white this time. I have a bigger version in my store which you can find at the top right of my blog.
So thank you for stopping by and ya don't know how much I appreciate it!!! Have a great week!
