I spent a little time in my craft room this week and I found some inspiration from a few places so I have a few pages to share today. Here is the first.
So Scrapbook Paradise started a weekly challenge. They are a Canadian scrapbooking company that I like to shop at from time to time. I love the challenge this week... Challenge 3 Distressing. One of my all time favourite things to do to a page For this page I used some water distressing techniques on... well... just about everything. The base paper is from Gramma's attic I think... I used Walnut stain distress ink on the Dusty Attic frame around the photo I also added a few gems to it because I love bling on everything! The flowers were cut from my Tattered floral die, I wet them again with water and bunched them up in tightly so that the flowers would have some dimension Once they were dried I layered the flowers glued them and shaped them as I wanted, sprayed them with smooch and glimmer mist and dried them with my heat gun to make them nice and sturdy (this step makes a big difference in how well your homemade flowers hold up in your album); then I added punched snowflakes from a MS punch I have to great the middles and topped them off with some more gems. I love making my own flowers! The flourish has a sort of white polished finish to it. Not sure what the brand is, I sprayed with walnut stain which is a product that I bought when I first started scrapping but hardly ever used so I spayed it and left it over night in the morning to my surprise it was not dry so I hit it with the heat gun again it was cooking on top but was still tacky so I took a rag and started sponging it off and what I found was a great leathery piece of chipboard that I absolutly love! A happy accident!!! I love those!! that is how this LO was created. Here is a close up of the flowers and flourish
The second LO that I am sharing is the another page that I was going to submit for last weeks challenge at scrapbook Paradise but unfortunately it took me to much time to get it photographed and posted and I missed the deadline but I will share it anyways. There was a cute little owl that we were suppose to use as inspiration and it just so happened that I had just received the cutest little chippy owl for another challenge at Scrapbook.com so I created this page with it
the owl has 3 layers I glimmer misted the top and bottom layers and covered the middle section in paper. The journaling has some advise to my daughter about working hard and being able to achieve anything!
Well thanks for looking hope you had a whoot!
LOL sorry could not help it!
