Recent Loot

While I intended to go to Lasting Impression just to get a puncher and few stuff to get my mojo flowing, I left Lasting with Unity Stamps, Tattered Angels Garden Blossom Trees, rub-ons from October Afternoon, Hambly stickers, Martha Steward chick family punch, and stickles.  The bill was a disaster.  There goes my Christmas bonus . . .  

On hindsight, it is nice to take a picture of what you have acquired so you wont forget what you have accumulated so far.   The picture will provide easy reference so you dont have to ravage your stash to look for something to use in your LO.

DIY Paper Flower

I was searching for online tutorial on how to make paper flowers since the ones available in the LSS are quite expensive for a one LO use.  I chanced upon one tutorial which was quite easy to follow.  I made some using a double sided cs.

I put stickles and pearls.  For some closer look:

Thanks for looking.

My Take on Creative Scrappers Sketch # 127

I saw a perfect paper for Creative Scrappers Sketch no. 127 from among my stash.  I just added some flowers, rub-ons, Fancy Pants felt, and stickles for some drama.  Other than those, I felt the paper and the picture provided for all the adornments I needed to come up with this entry.

Thanks for looking.

The Color Room Palette # 29

I've been loving the inspiration which The Color Room provides.  It introduces me to color combinations which I never thought would blend well together.  This is the Palette # 29:

And here is my take:


I used some misting here in this LO.  I painted on and glittered the diecut bird from Sizzix by Tim Holtz.  I sprayed on some glimmermist to the alphas to match the color requirement.  The flowers are from Prima and the doilies are from Gourdo's.

And When I was Up for It . . .

. . . an unfortunate event happened. For the past years that I have been engaged in the craft, very seldom do I join challenges for lack of confidence. After brazing enough courage, I finally decided to join one sponsored by The Color Room. After taking pictures of my LO, alas, I couldnt find my camera cable(?). Being an untechy person that I am, the most treasured possessions I have, as an accessory to my art, are my hubby's Nikon camera pre-set for my competence (or lack of it) and the cable where I could transfer pictures to the computer without much intellectual exercise. Lo and behold, the cable is missing and no amount of effort to locate it proved successful. I heard of a card reader that reads the memory card from my camera. Got to find one of those. In the meantime, my iphone afforded me some remedy, but of course, the product is not of competitive quality. I just have to make do of it now for this post.

Here is the Color Palette # 28 from The Color Room

And here is my take:

I didnt realize the colors would go well together.

Thanks for looking.
