Pretty Much Never CoolPosted: January 10, 2013
I bet by now, you’ve figured out that while I may be adventurous and “different,” I am not necessarily what you would call “cool.” I’m plenty of quirky, lotsa dorky, and a bunch of weird. When my daughter took this photo of me in Minnesota, however…I looked kinda cool.
I decided to use the really really rad Punky Scraps challenge this month (check it out…that picture is amazeballs), and grab colors from the photo itself, like the purple of my sunglasses, and the blue of the sky.
I started by collaging the background with vintage papers, and then layering on some pink paint mixed with gel medium. The next layer was stenciling and stamping.
Several of the embellishments on this page (the book page heart, sequin heart) came from a Paper Issues embellishment kit that has sold out…but there are a few of the elements you can find here, I see.
We’re almost to Friday, hooray!! I’m busily planning a family birthday celebration for my Brynne, who turns 13 today. I have another teenager in my home!! Brynne is a big fan of Downton Abbey and all thinks British, so we are having a Anglophile party…full of union jack banners, tea, cakes, and Downton references. Of course there will be photos….and they will be scrapped.
