When I opened my kps box i got so excited about all the awesome stuff! The only thing that scared me was the bo bunny. I dont usually use theme paper so its way out of my comfort zone. There was a bunch of different paper in the box so i could have bypassed this line all together but i decided to challenge myself to make this paper work for ME. Paint it, sew it, and grunge it up! I like the way it turned out in the end and im happy i stretched myself. Lesson learned: any paper will work if you make it your own!!!! Go use some paper u dont usually use and make it your own....... I just thought I would mention that this is my third post in a row!!!! Im so proud of myself :) CREATE WHAT MAKES U HAPPY
This is the layout I made for the kps Design team. I had some much fun with the paint and gesso!!! When this paper came out i didnt really think I liked it, but come to find out I LOVE IT!!! The picture was edited using actions from Coffee and tea photo shop actions blog. Her actions are awesome and FREE. Check out her tutorials too they helped me a bunch. Sorry for the wonky picture. Some day ill be patient enough to get my layouts to photograph straight :) Have an awesome day guys!!!! 2 days till my birthday!!!!!! CREATE WHAT MAKES U HAPPY
I have been soooooooooo busy. The past 2 weeks have been nonstop working and mayhem. I finally got in the remodeling groove again! I decided to tackle our half bath downstairs. This bathroom has been a mess since day one. For the past 4 months its had a concrete floor. This is the bathroom company uses btw. Yuck. heres before: Heres the during: Heres the almost finished after: The only thing missing is the vanity, mirror and new light hopefully we'll get those in the next few weeks!I am so happy to see it coming together. I had some sort of remodel revelation. I decided to think about the rooms like scrapbook pages. Make the colors work, the layout work, add embellishments and bam its done! I feel good about it all. Im not a carpenter but i can do this crap :)
Enough of that lets get to the scrapping!!!!! I photographed a tutorial for the background. Its super fun and easy to make.....It will be up on monday :) Almost everything is prima. I also used glimmer mist, crackle paint by ranger, a heidi swapp thingy, Basic grey rubons, a paper doily thing, gesso, mm mini letters, and some cardboard. Heres a close up of the glimmer misted flowers.....Dont forget to check back monday for the tutorial!!!
Today on 4 hours of sleep(insomnia is running ramped in this house) I worked forDollarscrapbooking.net here in Arlington. Exhausting but totally worth it. These ladies were so awesome and fun to work for!!! Check them out at Great American scrapbook convention or on their web site. Almost everything's a dollar HELLO????? So......... I got to the convention an hour before my shift started to power shop!!! I found some really awesome stuff that Ill be posting prob on sun. The hands down best find was this hand made paper from India for 35 cents. These deals, im telling u, are beyond wonderful!!! I cant stop touching the paper. It feels like heaven and the texture is to die for. I have about 50 projects envisioned for it so ill prob be forced to get some more :) Hubs and I are going again in the morning so I can spend his money(its my birthday month and I deserve it) I'm sleepy so till next time......... CREATE WHAT MAKES U HAPPY
