inspired by....

jessica of scraptasic club and her beautiful wall art
she creates every sunday for what's scrapping

here are my supplies! i also used my atg, hot gue gun, files and petal roller!
i sprayed the canvas with the glimmer mist. then when
that dried it used the dauber on the edges
i lightly sprayed the word, and aso used the dauber
on the edges
covered with paper and decorated like so...

then attached to the canvas!

salt technique, survivor week 6

thank you marah johnson for the fabulous video!!
she used Creative Imaginations Twinkling H2O's *which i would love to try!

i created this page (and tag) for tally scrappers
week 6 team rob survivor challenge

the challenge was...
3 word title, one had to start with the letter o
pink (because of phillips undies lol)
and 2 brads!
so here is my take on marahs technique...

i used chalkboard glimmer mist (LOVE)
i did not pre-wet the tag because i figured the
mist was wet enough
added kosher salt and let dry
and this is the end result! soooo cool!

i meant to share this before st patty's day! sorry
yummy jello cake!

i used a white cake mix, added what was called for on the box
plus 3/4 cup cake flour
bake off cakes (i made 2 9")
cool on rack
when cooled place back in baking pans
make jello as per box directions
you can use a skewer to make small holes in cake
pour jello onto cakes

refrigerate for 3 hours
then carefully remove from pans
you can place parchement rounds in pans to make this part easier
2c whipping cream
1/2 c sugar
8oz softened cream cheese
1 tsp almond extract
this is called a sturdy whipped cream frosting!

add a generous amount between layers
and isn't that purdy!!!
it was soooo good! i went light on the jello, next time i add more!

today i'm making a chocolate chocolate chip banana cake!

survivor week 4

sarah was killing me with this weeks challenge.
i spent all day wednesday trying to figure out how to
do this one!
we had to distress in 2 ways, by sand and by water.
then we had to make 3 embellishments for the page.
i used my bg file and placed the pp and pics on corrugated cardboard
to get the "ribbed look"
i watered down creme de cocoa glimmer mist and made a
mask from a sass paper with the scalloped boarder.
i also used water on the rolled blue flower (i made with my petal roller).
i sprayed it then pressed it to give it a more
"distressed" look.
we also had to stitch. i used my sew easy to stitch where i journaled
and i stitched on the cardboard butterfly i made.

survivor week 3 @ tally scrapper

at first glance this challenge seems like it was going to be a killer!!!
2 pics (check)
greenday song (check)
a piece of nature (check)
monochromatic (ceck)
i used glimmer mist (frost) and some screens from tattered angels
to create the background.
i made a small hole and cut away to make the
journaling spot.
i ran the punched (thanks for the punch shawn) flakes
through the xyron and glittlered them.
i covered the stick in white glue, added glitter,
then i used the heat gun.
