~~~ Home is were you are ~~~ Enmarc Card Challenge




Using this month's card sketch I made this sweet card.I colored the chippie by spraying Dazzles Summer Fields and Wild Grape onto my craft sheet together with some Picket Fence distress Stain.After wetting the chippie with some water,I dragged it through the paints until I was satisfied with the colors.Once dry I embossed with clear embossing powder and finished it of with another light spritz of Wild Grape Dazzle.The leaves were just chalked and curled with my awl.It makes the layers split a little giving it some dimension...Thanks for the tip Alma ;-)


I used Enmarc's
Swirl and Flourishes: Flourish 9




Here one can see the effect the extra spritz of Dazzle has on the chippie!    




















Thank you to any one visiting me here...:-)

~~~ My Ten/Eleven... Favorite LO's of the Year...2011 ~~~

I am going to take a huge leap and send in an application for a Design Team call that Imaginarium Designs has going...I will make it in the nick of time...for I didn't really have the courage to try...But what the heck,why not! I think it is time that I start believing in myself and my art. What started out as a "I will just do a page or two" in 2006 has developed into a love affair with paper and as of this year with chipboard elements!  Here is a collage of ten of my favorite LO's of the year... Unfortunately not done with Imaginarium chippies but with Dusty Attic and our local Enmarc Craft chippies....I love what Imaginarium has to offer though and think I should try and get me some of their chippies as well to play with. I LOVE distressing and feel my page is not complete without some tearing or rolling or just generally messing up a plain piece of paper. The same can be said about the chippies. I treat them as blank canvasses and try to see to what extent I can mess with them! They are usually painted and crackled and layered and... well see for yourself....I am going to add an eleventh project for you have to see how beautiful this card is with a bejeweled Christmas tree...

I was asked to be on Enmarc Crafts DT For 3 months, being May to July... fortunately for me I am still on their team!!! And I will be on Crafti Treasures Panel Team for 3 month, January to March with February being my month to host a challenge.

Here are some of my LO's of the year...
