BIYW Binder Part Two!

 Happy Hump Day friends, I am back again with the pages inside this fun album. 

 Clear Scraps & Imagine Crafts has paired up this week and I have 
a cool technique I created while I was playing. 
I used irRESISTible sprays and a blow dryer to create a cracked wood grain effect

I used the same technique inside on the pages except I tried different colors too!
 Then I decorated all the pages :) 

I am so excited with the end product!
FUN FUN project.

Clear Scraps + Imagine Crafts- Wood Grain Technique

 Hey again friends, Happy Monday!
So Clear Scraps & Imagine Crafts has paired up this week and I have 
a cool technique I created while I was playing. 
I used irRESISTible sprays and a blow dryer to create a cracked wood grain effect. 
I created this Build It Your Way Binder (wait until I share the pages inside)
and wanted to cover the fence in texture, then I began playing with the 
irRESISTible spray in COPPER and BRONZE and I coated the binder spine
with them mixing the colors, I thought it kind of reminded me of wood
 So I saturated it- I should meant ion I taped off the acrylic first. 
After saturating it, I left it 20 minutes to get a little bit of a crust on it, 
then I took a blow dryer and heated it for about 10 minutes which gave it 
a cool crackled wood affect. 
It looks like aged wood really well in person too. 
For the Clear Scraps Fence Mixers I used the Wedding Dress irRESISTible spray but I didn't
get to it with the blow dryer quick enough to make it wooden (I wish I had),
so I dried it then I inked it using StazOn inks in Emerald City and Cactus Green. 
 I wrapped flowers and stems around the fence adhering it onto the 
album cover, after adding the laces. 
 These Imagine Crafts products are so amazing even if you are not a mixed media
guru (I am definitely NOT) it's for the every day crafter too just for amazing
ideas and new techniques!
TRY the blow dryer!!!!! :)

You Can Make It....

Hello friends and hello Monday...

I know that Avocado Arts has really fun adorable stamps, but they
also have amazing messages in some of the sets, like this month's set
You Can Do It is definitely inspiring to me.

I created this bubble frame- believe it or not it is chipboard LOL and I 
added the stamped sentiment onto cork paper. 
I just wanted something to hang in my room and remind me to keep
on trying every single day.

BE SURE to hit up Avocado Arts and comment on my post- they are giving away
prizes this month for commenting!!

NEW Stamps! Back To School Crafts...

Hey friends, it's the 15th that means it's my day to post for 
Avocado Arts with their new stamp set, this one is called 
"You Can Do It" how fun is that?

I decided to create some lunch box notes from mom using the stamp,
I used Clear Scraps acrylic pieces and added the patterned paper to the
top of them, then added cork paper for the cookies. 
This is the stamp right??! :) 
Then I decided to make little pencil tags just for fun, 
why not jazz them up and pass the out in the treasure box. 
You can find all my projects on the AA blog sometimes today!

Hello Summer...Goodbye Summer...

Hey there friends, can you believe it? I blogged
TWO day in a row with a project!

 I used a clear acetate frame from Simple Stories and cut it down to
fit the bottom flap, then added Liquid Pearls to the half scallop. 
 I love the beachy theme and feel.
 I was going to use alcohol inks but I loved it the way it was...
the only thing I wish I had was some Mudd Puddles sand to add! 
That would have been perfect!
That's it for me, don't forget the SW blog hop tomorrow!
Happy Tuesday friends.....
