The challenge this week has two parts. The first part is to use some plastic packaging from some of your scrapbook supplies and use it somehow to create an embellishment. I created a see-through shaker pocket full of chunky glitter. The packaging contained a set of brads. I cut both ends off and machine stitched through one end. I poured some glitter inside and then stitched the other end closed. It was really fun to make! I have never done this before, so it was neat to give a whirl.
The second part of the challenge is to draw or paint at least one word of your title. I used watercolors and a paint brush to paint the word "LOVE" onto white cardstock. Then I cut it out and combined with alpha stickers.
I used the gorgeous Simple Stories So Fancy collection, and let me tell you....it's stunning! I love the colors...just beautiful. Get yourself some of it HERE.
I jazzed up the background a bit with a few blue shades of Distress Ink and a Crafter's Workshop stencil. I also added in a few splatters with my brush and some splatters of gold Color Shine.
I found a sketch circle die cut in the Silhouette Store and used as a layering piece behind my photo along with a few patterned papers and some tissue paper. I also added in some tangled thread, a few heart die cuts, a brad an some enamel dots.
Check out this shaker pocket! I love it....it turned out so much better than I thought it would! I added in blue, purple and gold chunky glitter I found at Michael's. I also fell in love with that gorgeous dream catcher die cut from the collection.
And here's a shot of the hand-painted title. I love how it turned out, too! My small alphas are from the Basic Grey Prism sticker sheet.
Here's a look at how I put this all together if you'd like to take a look.....hope you enjoy!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful weekend!
