Blogger's Challenge Alter It with Basic Grey Kioshi

Click on Photo for a Larger Resolution


Hello fellow bloggers, I have been MIA for a few weeks and really missing my online friends.
This weeks challenge, is, "Alter It"...I am behind, as some of my project is missing for this challenge. The Shadow Box is still drying with a third application of Ranger Crackle Paint. I thought I would post the layout anyway. This adorable little gal is my new grandaughter, she is such a darling and ever so tiny; we call her 'Sweet Pea'.
Take a boo over to the Bloggers Challenge Player's list and see what creative works these gals have posted.
I am excited to announce that I am a Designer for an online Canadian Scrapbook Store called ScrapbookingFanatics. There is also a Scrapbookingfanatics blog. Designers will be posting their creations and wonderful talents.....Please stop by and we would love to hear from you.
For this layout, I used the new Basic Grey Line - called "Kioshi"...lovely paper for soft elegant pictures...The diecut lace doilie (Fancy), chipstickers, and Alpha's are all from Basic Grey. The E-Line Rhinestones and Flowers are made by Prima Marketing ( Cherry Blossom- Branches Jublilee)..
The cute little Bird on the side is a die cut from my Cricut Cartridge "Home Decor". The Bird was altered using the "Dabber Shimmers" technique from Technique Junkies.
Stamping Technique
I painted the Basic Grey Kioshi paper with Ranger Inkessentials Crackle Accents, and added a few strokes of Ranger Distress Crackle (Clear Rock Candy). I dried the pieces with my heat gun and then very gingerly crumbled the three pieces. I then distressed each piece with Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Worn Lipstick, Shabby Shutters, Dusty Concord and added Ranger lavender Stickles for some glitter. The picture does not do this technique justice, I found this very impressive when you want to add a torn and grungy look to your patterned paper.
thanks for stopping by
