I finally got this done!! My friends, Barrie & Carol at www.scrapadabadoo.blogspot.com put out a little challenge with a template to make up a box and this is my creation. Recently I bought some glimmer mist from Tattered Angels and wanted to see if I could use the mist as well as a Tim Holtz mask I had and was glad to see it turned out pretty darned cute. I also misted the lace with GM Old Lace so it would have a sparkle. Bummer it doesn't show in the picture so much... but I'm sure you get the idea. I also used some white Prima flowers and painted them with the glimmer mist.
I originally wanted to make a box in a box... in a box... idea but my printer has been a little stubborn lately and just wouldn't let me print as I wanted. I'm not sure what I'll do with the box... I was thinking I'd send it to my mom for Mother's Day with a gift card to her favorite restaurant so she can go out to eat.
My good friend Leslie also did the box challenge and you HAVE TO go check hers out!! She had a fantastic idea and crackled it! I absolutely love her design!! Here's a link to her blog entry : http://lesliecran.wordpress.com/2010/04/21/time-to-catch-up-and-a-little-rak/ Leslie is a very talented artist and does the most amazing things with mixed medium art!! You'll definitely want to spend some time looking over her other entries at all her amazing projects!!
Ok folks... it's off to dreamland for this gal. I have a few more projects I need to post as well as a page I made with the Tim Holtz die I won. I really should get better at this blogging craze!!
I'm a single mom of two amazing young people. While I love to travel and enjoy nature's playground, I also enjoy letting my creative side flow and Art Journal when the notion strikes. (hm and when time permits!)
