I am hosting the new challenge at Just Some Lines, which starts today. The theme is
I decided to make several projects - this first one is an ATC using Amber April Showers:
Next is a bookmark I made using Amber Reads:
And last is my FAVORITE - it's a desk-top calendar:
I sprayed a couple of chipboard coasters with Smooch Spritz in Log Cabin & Gold Foil. I then colored Bonsai Bear and Bonsai Bear Sleeps with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits, fussy-cut them and adhered them with Mod Podge. I printed out the calendar pages and used brads to attach them to a piece of dark brown cardstock. I used a light coat of Mod Podge to attach to the coaster. I then punched holes in the coasters with my Crop-a-Dile and tied pieces of dark brown ribbon through the holes to hold it together. I want to make a bunch of these calendars to give as Christmas gifts this year.
Next up is my very last ever Saturday Spotlight card for Michelle Perkett Studio. :( Michelle is closing her Paper Craft Planet group and challenge blog, and I will miss it very much but I wish her the best of luck in all of her endeavors, and I'm sure she's got a lot of them planned! Here's "Fire" from the Elements series:
I colored my image with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and SU! markers and I used SU! cardstock, DP, markers, brads, and glitter.
Well, we're expecting Hurricane Irene to hit us late tonight, early tomorrow morning - so I have to get to the store and get some food and stuff. Yeah, I know - it's going to be a freaking ZOO. *sigh* Tomorrow also happens to be mine & Jeremy's 18th anniversary, but I don't think we'll be going out with winds whipping around at 60-80 mph, so I'm thinking we'll go out to dinner to celebrate later tonight instead and then batten down the hatches tomorrow! :)
