ScrapFIT Weekend Warm-Up #25

Howdy there, scrappers! I apologize for not getting this up on my blog on Monday, but I was dealing with my blogger photo limit situation. I appreciate all the help. I wound up buying 20 GB of space for only $5, so it worked out. Now I can upload a gazillion pictures and not have to worry!

I want to share with you the latest Weekend Warm-Up over at ScrapFIT. It's #25, and all you have to do is be willing to GET MESSY! Create a project that involves splattering or dripping...you can use watercolors, paints, mists...as long as you "color outside the lines," it will work :)

Here is the sample I created. I used some homemade mists & watercolors, and sprayed & painted inside the end of a cup. (I cut the bottom end out and made my own little circle template). I sprayed a lot, and then just let it run. It's a great way to create your own unique background!

I was in the mood to keep the messy theme going, so I ripped up several papers of different colors and just started inking, distressing & gluing.

After everything dried, I took my chalks in matching colors and adding some darker spots and shading.

If you win the Warm-Up, you will be our featured FITGirl in our Spotlight later in the month. It's your chance to shine and show off your scrappy skills :)


  1. This is gorgeous Missy! You did the "messy" fabulously! I'm glad you got some space. $5..is a really good deal!

  2. Very fun Missy!! Love the painted circles...they remind me of balloons! The torn/distressed paper strips are really awesome and I love how you layered them!!

  3. What an awesome technique you used to make that fun background, Missy!!! I also love all the distressed paper layers under the photo, amazing work!!
