Lots to share
Posted by swewi on June 14, 2010
First of all – a new Allt om Scrap ezine came out yesterday, and I have two LO’s in it. Go over there and have a look, there’s some amazing talent over there!
I’m only gonna share one of the two LO’s, since the other one is going to be a gift. I don’t think that person checks out my blog, but you never know…
This LO is about how Elsa LOVES playing with the stones in our garden. She “counts them” over and over again. Hence the title “millions of stones”:
Products used: BG basics that have been sprayed with pink chalkboard mist, October Afternoon pp, sprayed with “regular” glimmermist, BG basics border sticker, corrugated cardboard, Prima pebbles, baker’s twine from Etsy, misc tag, AC thickers, misc leftover numbers & the journaling is done on an old rusty typewriter.
Then, a LO featuring my husband, he’s a very passionate musician. It’s for a “boyzone” challenge over at Scrappin’ Patch – go check it out!
I just LOVE the new starlight papers from Pink Paislee! And I think they go well with BG basics too, don’t you? Add some Webster’s buttons, a glimmermisted Magistical Memories chipboard star that also have been wildly attacked with Tim Holtz Distress Crackle paint, a Martha Stewart star punch, BG basics journaling spots and Pink Paislee alphas to the mix, and you have a very masculine LO. Not a flower in sight!
I also played with the crackle paint on the paper, and it came out pretty cool. The background paper was sprayed with glimmermist chalkboard, hard to see, but very sparkly IRL!
And look – my hubby is in the next LO too, together with Elsa. The title says “sweet summer”. Man, I miss it…
This LO is up on the Swe Scrapbook blog today, it’s for a sketch.
Products used: GCD blue paper, LilyBee patterned pp & chipboard, Prima flower, AC thickers & alphas, misc doilie. Have also played with my black Pearlmaker. Don’t you just loooooooove the bright colours in this LO?
OK, that’ll be enough for tonight’s post! I’m off to bed for an early night for a change. I decided I had had enough of being a couch potato, and went for a 75 min power walk today, so I feel a bit tired!
Thanks for stopping by, see ya!
