Hello Dear Blogland friends….
I got new glasses recently, and that sparked a bit of a Selfie frenzy for me….lol! Not one who loves having my photo taken and neither a Selfie guru means that from about 50 I have maybe 3 decent photos that might be used in future pages as well…
For my Design Team page for Dusty Attic in April, I teamed up with papers and flowers from 49 and Market again…
I used the Baubles Chipboards for this page as I thought they will add a little playfulness to this page. As you can see, on this page I did not use ANY paint, Mist or usual Mixed Media medium. Once I started distressing and layering the papers, I felt like keeping the emphasis on the elements.
I coloured the Baubles with the latest Buzz in Inks, namely Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks. I simply swiped Cracked Pistachio, Peeled Paint and Worn Lipstick onto the Chippies, wet them a little and Heat set. I repeated that a few times until I was Happy with the look. I embossed them with a clear embossing powder.
The Title from the Wordpack # 18 and the ATC Frame #3 were both inked with Cracked Pistachio Ink and clear embossed. I used a few Hearts from the Heart Attack Border #1 and embossed them with Rasberry Lemonade Embossing Powder from Lindy’s Stampgang.
I used 49 and Market paper; Faded Bloom, Passage and Serenity from the Heirloom Botanicals Collection together with several flowers.
From the Dusty Attic store I used the following Chipboard pieces….
Like the sky opens after a rainy day
we must open to ourselves….
Learn to love yourself
for who you are
and open so the world
can see you shine.
Thank you for your visit and take good care of yourselves….
