I know it's been a while, since I last posted. Situation normal.......you know the rest!! Aside from my daughter & grand-son being here, and computer issues a while back, my camera went nuts!! Long story! Suffice it to say, that whenever I would try to upload the umpteen million (exagerating!) pics to my computer, I would be told that there were NO pics on my camera!! Ugh!!!!!! This has happened at least 3 times!! On the last go round, I had about 150 pics, that just disappeared right into thin air. Needless to say, I really got upset about it, and vowed that I was done with it!! So I went and bought me a new toy!!! Although I would love to get a really fancy pro or semi-pro camera....I decided to stick with a point & shoot.......a Nikon Coolpix S4100. 14 Megapixels, 3.0 LCD Screen, Wide 5X Zoom, Touch Screen, HD Movie capability & the MOST important feature......Vibration Reduction!! LOLOLOL
And of course, with all of the fun I've been having...if that's what you want to call 'fun'...I haven't been playing along with Linda at Studio L3, for Grungy Monday!! Wow I can't believe how time flies. It just feels like it was yesterday when I made the first tag. Hopefully, I am done with fixing &/or replacing equipment and tools!
The technique we're using this week is from Tim's Blog, January 2008. Check it out!!
I think it turned out pretty cool, and it matches perfectly with a mini album I'm working on!! More on that in another post!
And I also decided that I need to get back into doing more challenges, especially of the layout kind. And what's the best place to do that at? The Color Room!! So I gave it a go, and made this LO of my DGS for their Palette #62.
Papers are from Glitz Design....GORGEOUS!!!! Main frame is punched with Martha Stewart's Large Punch Set - Wild Flowers. Sooooo glad I got this one at Mike's, with a 40% off coupon!!
Here's a few closeups....
I used Wild Honey DI on the Tim pre cut grungeboard and added some Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals in Cocoa Bean Copper over top. Some Ranger Crackle Accents and heat set right away to get that aged bubble effect. Some hemp cord around a Tim pin, glued over a spinner, and a large flat back pearl for the head.
Love these leaves!! Cardstock is Bazzill, cut with Tattered Flowers die, misted with LSG Opal Sea Oats. Then embossed with Starry Night from Sizzix. A little DI over top and voila.....gorgeous leaves!
The alpha 'U' is from Tattered Angels....more misting and distressing. I had a leftover chipboard flower that I had used some flocking on...orange...how cool is that!! (yep, still using up my older stash!!) And a chipboard piece I diecut with Tim/Sizzix's Hardware Findings. There's sooooo many layers on that piece, that I can't remember all of the products I used. Def Tim's DI and LSG's Starburst Sprays & Magicals. Some crackle medium, and then more of everything on top!!
Well, that's it for today!! So glad I finally got to play along with both of these challenges!! Now I'm off to upload them!! Oh I alsmost forgot to tell you......I got those gorgeous papers in my Swirlydoos kit!! Gotta check them out too!!
