More projects made for ScrapbooksPlus with Little Yellow Bicycle's Twig line!!
Can I tell you how much I love their canvas strips - so thin, easy to cut, easy to use! I layered a cardstock sticker strip over a canvas border in the middle of the page and used the banner across the left-hand side.
And more fun! I love all the embellishment in this line - and I think I managed to use (read "play") with all of them. The corregated shapes, leaf pins, stickers.....
Distress Stains! You've gotta see them. Trust me - you'll love them.
And if you haven't tried Perfect Pearls Mist you're really missing a fantastic product.
Stop by ScrapbooksPlus next Wednesday. I'm going to be doing a free demo from 11 - 1 of the new Distress Stains and Perfect Pearls Mists. In addition to demonstrating how you can use them, I'll show you how they compare to Distress Ink.
And while you're there, check out the new Tim Holtz products that've arrived!
This month at ScrapbooksPlus we're featuring Twig from Little Yellow Bicycle. Very fun paper!
I spent Sunday at CHA walking the show with Karen, my partner-in-crime from the store. I took quite a number of pictures with my iPhone. Some good, some blurry. Well, for the good & the bad I thought I'd do a bit of a summary -
I added a Hero Arts flower stamped on canvas (I did a few flower make-and-takes), bird and cage chipboard cut from a Tim Holtz die, and some green Thickers. Everything else ('cept the kraft paper) is from Twig.
It's challenge 34 of Linda Ledbetter's Compendium of Curiosities challenges. This week we're turning to page 63 for Tim's dimensional collage fragments.
I also decided to break out my very brand new Distress Stains. They really go on fast at first - or maybe I tapped on the bottle a bit too hard to get the ink flowing. The background is broken china distress stain, with some broken china and vintage photo ink added.
I tried out the stains on a script stamp from Hero Arts, using forest moss. It bled, and was a bit heavier & darker than I anticipated, but no worries. I went on to stamp some more, the heart in black archival ink.
A funny thing about this. Immediately after I pulled the stamp off I realized that I didn't like the black against the background colors. I quickly grabbed a brush and copper perfect pearls. I was surprised - the perfect pearls stuck to the ink! Quite a happy accident. I spritzed it quickly with perfect pearls mist to set the powder.
The flower at the bottom was made with a Little Yellow Bicycle doily, a bit of glue, a Bo Bunny button, and an I-rock glam metal accent. I'm breaking out all my new toys tonight!
Above the flower is my fragment - a bit of Tim Holtz paper, black rub-on, tissue tape and Girls Paperie tag.
