Prima- September- BAP

Hi Guys! 
Trying to back into the groove of participating in the Prima BAP. I have great intentions of playing along each month but extra time to create is limited so I always miss the opportunity.

This month I pushed myself and squeezed a layout in based on the sketch. Have you seen it and are you playing along?

I used a past Scraps of Darkness for this page. This was from the April kit "His and Hers". As I have probably mentioned before red is my favorite color so this was a joy to create! 

I suppose you can tell I am now into this messy grungy look. Sometimes I am not sure if it looks great or is just a hot mess. :)

I've used a variety of mediums, mists, modeling paste, alcohol inks and ink for stamping.

A little washi tape to pick up the blue. I pretty much left it "clean" because my page is so busy and grungy I wanted a little freshness to rest my eye on.

Lot's of random stamping and fibers thrown in for good measure.

Just one more close up.

The photo is a copyright free one. I believe it's from Magical Moonlight. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Scraps of Darkness Third Design Team Project

Hey Everyone! Today I have another layout to share featuring the beautiful August kit from Scraps of Darkness "Weathered and Worn"
In case you missed it scoot on over to the site and you will find it here.

I love the combination of Marion Smith Garment District and Fabscraps papers together. Pink and brown make a lovely combo here with pops of blue and purple. 

I love this photo of my daughter and wanted to sort of nest it within floral clusters and torn paper layers. I snuck in some Dusty Attic chipboard, inked, dabbed with Shimmerz Texturez then added drops of alcohol ink.
I've used the beautiful blue florals included in the kit from Magnolia. Love these!

I achieved all the effects on this page with ink and stamps. I do have a huge arsenal of stamps. Got to use them right?

These purple blooms I have had in my stash forever and the gray and black roses too!

A couple of close ups for you!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate your visit!

Sneak Peek- Artists Trading Blocks

Hello Friends! 

I'm just stopping in quickly to share a sneak peek of a fun project I have posted on the BoBunny Blog today.  You can see it all here.

I created a set of 3 Artists Trading Blocks using BoBunny's new "Souvenir" collection papers and embellishments. BoBunny also has lots of new mixed media products: stencils, pastes, inks and sprays!

Under Construction

Hey All! I'm having a blog makeover! Rita from Coffeshop Designs has been working hard on my blog getting me up in running with all social media links and drop down boxes and all that good stuff! I highly recommend her! She did a beautiful job on everything! Yay!  

Please bear with me while I tweak things. I'm working on my labels and will be adding drop downs for tutorials so you will easily be able to find it all in one location. Also working on filling up my galleries and cleaning up my sidebar.

Thanks for your patience!

Video Tutorial Accordion Fold Tag Pocket Mini Album

Hello Friends! 
Today I want to share my video with you in case you missed it on the BoBunny Blog last week!

Here a few photo shots of this project.

This is a cute mini album that was a ton of fun to create. Lots of little pockets to hold tags, photos, tickets, etc.

 I used some mixed media techniques as well as punching to make this album my own. 
Check out the video and let me know if you make one for yourself. I would love to see it!
