On Monday, Scrapbooking.com Magazine’s newsletter went out and editor Jami Petersen had bestowed the great honor
on my blog! This was obviously beyond exciting to me, lol! Thank you so much, Jami!! And thank you to all the new readers who discovered my blog through the link – I hope you enjoyed it and will come back to visit!
I made this wooden frame a while back and never did post it. I used Prima papers and, of course, flowers. I used a gold glaze paint from Delta/Rubber Stampede to edge the inside and outside edges of the frame (which was painted using a metallic teal paint from Deco Art – same series as my beloved Rich Espresso). I also used the glaze to highlight the tops of the flowers. I did both paint techniques simply with my finger (my index finger was gold for a couple of days, lol). I pulled out some micro beads (Provo) that I have probably had for about 7 years for the flower centers. You really have to click on the picture to see all the blingy details. For some reason even my nifty new camera didn’t pick it up really well – might have to take it outside later and try again.
And last, but not least, I thought I’d get everyone involved again! I have a brand new Crop-A-Dile and case I’d love to give away (I have two for some reason) to a blog reader to say thanks for checking in on my creative endeavors! As I mentioned the other day, I got a new video camera and would love to do up some tutorials for you. Simply leave me a message with what kinds of projects or tutorials YOU would like to see in video form and next Tuesday (yes, I know that’s April Fool’s Day…maybe I’ll fool you and add in some extra goodies!) I will use my handy dandy low tech random number chooser (yea, a phone call to a friend asking for a number between 1 and x) to find a winner!
Oh! And one more thing! If you haven’t already, be sure to click on the link on the right to go check out the Craft Coalition – it’s a great idea and something everyone can get involved in to help strengthen the craft industry!
