Art Anthology Dream Team!

I am proud to announce that I was chosen to join the Art Anthology Design Team! Click here to see the announcement on their blog: Art Anthology Blog. Out of the three companies I've applied to, I am so glad that I got this one because they make the most incredible paints and sprays. I've been using a limited supply of their products for the past few months and they are really cool and different. I throw paint on almost everything I make these days and many scrapbook companies haven't embraced mixed media yet.  I think I fit in really well with the style that Art Anthology is projecting.  My first post on their blog is scheduled for March 9th.  I will be receiving an obscene amount of product soon and can't wait to start playing!

Thanks for visiting!

Gilding Flakes And A Secret

Whenever I create a project for Scrap n' Art magazine, I have to wait two months to share it anywhere else.  So here are some projects I could not share till now.

I used watercolor paper and lots of  Dylusions Crushed Grape spray with the Starry Night Stencil Girl stencil. On the chipboard and wood stars, I used IndigoBlu Mega Flake gilding flakes to add the sparkle.  I layered the photo with some Gelli Arts gelli prints that I already had, then used a star edge punch that didn't much like that thick watercolor paper.  Those punches came out really messy!!  I went with the "mess" and I really love how this one turned out!  Note:  My son HATES his picture taken and I really had to bribe him to get this one!!  So don't tell him about this blog post!!!!

Be Fearless started out as a fun journal page that needed something.  How about some of those IndigoBlu gilding flakes!!  So I applied the gilding glue through a Crafter's Workship circle stencil then applied the flakes.  Check out my IndigoBlu Mega-Flake tutorial this month in Scrap n' Art magazine.

I used the Stencil Girl Uplifting Words stencil to bring out some of the words with a black pen, then added the quote on the left page. The sparkle took this page to the next level!

Hope you enjoyed my projects!  I would love to read your comment below, so don't be shy!!!
