Hi guys! I'm back with a layout I did for Craft Hoarders Anonymous' very first challenge! Give a click to the title so you can check out this awesome new challenge site. If you're a scrapbooker or papercrafter then you hoard stuff. We're all the same and this site is just for us. You raid your hoard for each challenge, how awesome is that?!
The challenge prompt was, What's your style? Well, we all know what my groove is, sparkle, glitter, flowers, butterflies and the more the better! I love lots of layers and distressing, inking and tearing.
I used paper from my stash that I've had for quite a while. I can't even remember when I got it. An old school heart punch that I used for the tiny leaves of the flowers by just flipping it so the bottom stuck out :) I pulled some white tulle out that I bought from Joann's eons ago and dragged it through Lindy's Stamp Gang mists sprayed on my craft mat. I did the same with the string around my pic. A butterfly stencil that I made with transparencies I've had and homemade texture paste to make the butterflies in the top and bottom corners. My Silks acrylics to paint them and some Lindy's sprayed over. With a paint brush I dipped it in Lindy's and let it splat in the two corners. The butterfly chippie is from Creative Embellishments, and I painted it with Distress crackle paint in picket fence, sprayed it with Lindy's and then glued seed beads in a pink mix. I saved some bubble wrap that I painted with some white paint and dabbed it around my paper. All in all this was a stash raid for sure.
