More Playtime

Just wanted to share a few things that I've done the past few days.

My first attempt to work with beeswax. It wasn't as easy as it looked on Suze Weinberg's tutorial. I'm not entirely happy with the result and I don't know if it is finished, or not. Maybe I have to put more stuff on it. That is one of the nice things of working with wax. It is very forgiving. You can always melt it and add, move, and/or remove stuff. Will keep you posted.

This book/box is altered with with stuff from my stash and some left-overs from the Swirlydoos Butterfly whispers kit. I cut some flowers from lace and tule.
Thanks for stopping by.

Swirly Girls Club Challenges

Did you know we run some fantastic challenges @ Swirlydoos???? Check out their forum and play along!

This is my entry for Manda's challenge for March for the Swirly Girls Club. For this challenge we had to show our dying skillz. For the backgound paper I masked, stamped, inked, misted, painted. I glued metal on two corners and blended that into the paper with molding paste. On all the elements on this LO is paint or ink or both, except for the photo. For the title I used Marion Smith's chipboard technique.

Then for Peggy's challenge we had to use one of Robin's (loves2create) sketches and turn it 90 degrees, use 3 fllowers, 2 butterflies, 1 ribbon, and 50% Swirlydoos stuff. I used Robin's sketch #127.

This is it for today. Thanks to all who left a comment and/or became a follower. I truly appreciate it!

Play Time!

After all the LO's done and with the new stuff hitting the stores it was time for a little play time. I love to make tags or little 5 x 7 panels to try new products or techniques.

A mini canvas with the new distress inks, glimmer mist, perfect pearls, grungeboard and grunge paper, metal, stamps, masks...

Some tags with metal, molding paste, embossing folders, stamps, grunge paper, paint, ink, perfect pearls..... ohhh, the fun I'm having....

And I played with metal and some of the new TSS molds. The right panel is a lift from Linda Brown. I saw it on her blog and I had all this stuff, so I just had to make it. So cool. I was the first time I used the alcohol ink fillable pen. I only have one, but now of course I want more LOL

The mirror is from Ikea

Thanks for looking. I love your comments. So don't be shy and let me know you were here
