September Theme Challenge!

Hello Scrappers!

As summer winds down and I suddenly found myself in September, the main thing on my mind has been SCHOOL!! Between getting my daughter ready, working out new schedules and trying to remember how to get up early (uggghhh), back to school has been a major theme so far this month.

My challenge to you for this month is simple: scrap those school photos! Photos of your child, photos of you, photos of a niece, nephew, cousin, friend's child...everyone has school photos lying around SOMEWHERE! Here are a couple of school photo layouts I've made:

As always, you have until the end of the month to submit your NEW layouts (please, only new layouts created for this challenge). Happy scrapping!

September Product Challenge!

My challenge to you this month: make a project with Glimmer Mist. (you can use one of those other brands if you want, but I find Tattered Angels gives the best results!) If you haven't tried this product  before go get yourself a bottle. You won't be sorry, we'll your back account may be after you develop an addiction to it and have to have it in every color! But seriously, try it, I bet you'll like it! 

Some ways to use this product....
  • Spray it on and create a background!
  • Use a mask and spray over it to create a background or element!
  • Mix it with dimensional glaze to make shiny paint! 
  • Paint with it!
  • Spray Pearl, Gold, or Silver Mist on your whole project to make it shine!
  • Spray it on Prima flowers (or other flowers) to create sparkly accents!
  • Make all your elements match by spraying them with mist!
  • Use a piece of felt, spray it with mist and rub it over the part of the LO you want to sparkle!
  • Spray plain chipboard for an instant splash of color!
  • Use it on a stamp!
  • Roll it onto your layout or card with a brayer.(looks like a paint roller except it's smaller/made of rubber)
  • Spray neutral colored paper/cardstock for a fun effect.
  • Mix your colors! Spray more than one color on at a time! 
  • Create a coordinating mini album from pieces of glimmer misted cardboard!
There are some demo videos on the Tattered Angels'  Website, and even more ideas on how to use Glimmer Mist there!
Some examplesCollapse )

Post your Project featuring Glimmer Mist by the end of the month for your chance at the random prize draw! : )
Have fun, and don't become too addicted to the stuff! 


I hope its not too late to post...

I hope that its not too late to post, but here is my canvas piece...


I took the picture and changed the coloring in my computer. The ribbon is glued onto the back. The heart is wood, that was inked, and painted in variations of browns and pinks. The ribbon edges were inked to make them standout. I ran the ribbon through my sticker maker to make it stick...and brads were jammed in cause I didn't really take into account that there was wood on the back of the canvas, so that was the hardest part. I'm really quite pleased with the way it turned out. I want to make another one to match, but with a different picture, just haven't decided what picture. I'm going to hang it in my room.


Don't forget to post post post your canvas pieces! :) Can't wait to see them.

Some more Canvas...

Here's a punch of inspiration from Senior Designer, jgkimmy...isn't it gorgeous??

Challenge 22A: Canvas

It's time to step up the challenges a bit. My challenge to you this month is to use one of my very favorite crafty goodness --CANVAS!

You can do all sorts of things with canvas and with so many different sizes and widths, there's no telling what you'll come up with. You don't have to go out and buy an expensive piece of canvas. I was able to get 3 6x8 pieces for about four dollars. You can find some for under a dollar each as well.

"But Sonia, I've never worked with canvas. What could I possibly make??" Here's a clue...just imagine your scrapbook paper on a piece of canvas. Easy enough right? Pretend that your canvas is a piece of scrapbook paper that you are going to layer your pictures and embellishments on.

So be artistic and step outside of your comfort zone! Accept my challenge and show me what you've got.

You will find some examples of several canvas pieces I've made behind this cut. Go on...you know you wanna look!Collapse )

This was from last summer. A bunch of my friends went to Destin, and this is the evidence of two of my guy friends' bromance.
