I have some super exciting news! I have been chosen to be on the new Design Team for Paper Secrets, along with Amy and Doris, and our team co-ordinator Rochelle. We have heaps of fab challenges for May, as well as a super scrapping challenge called "Scrap Your Ass Off" with new challenges posted each Friday and a fantastic prize to the winner. Head on over to Paper Secrets and sign up by May 12th.
Here's some sneak peaks of my challenge examples...
Don't forget the challenge at Scrappassion Challenge Blog International this month is a mini-album. I made my album by die-cutting the edges using Tim Holtz dies, and Zuttering it all together. I then painted, and Glimmer Misted, then added Glimmer Glam and heat embossing. Then I embellished and added photos. It was a major mission, but I absolutely love how it turned out.
Sorry about the blue tinge , we've had a lot of cloudy days lately!
Here's a few layouts I've done for Artfull Crafts....
Tim Holtz Alcohol inks and added some Metallic Mixatives.
If you've never used Alcohol inks before, they are an amazing product. They work well on all glossy/non-porous surfaces, but can also be used to colour seam binding, fabric and ribbons. They come in small bottles which last forever, because you only need to use a few drops. I use them to colour flowers & rhinestones, on acetate and metal foil, you can "age" metal embellishments, & re-colour buttons.....as well as a heap of other things! I love the amazing effects you get with them, especially on metal and acetate. There's a nice tutorial here, otherwise if you Google 'Tim Holtz alcohol ink tutorial' you'll get lots of You-tube links to watch Tim do his magic.
Have a great weekend
