Back to School

Time for a new challenge at
Glitter 'N Sparkle!

The theme is 
"Back to School".

Using Library Fairy from our sponsors this week

I created an altered notebook cover.
The background was done with torn card stock 
that was pieced together mosaic style.
I brushed ink in 2 colors over the background
just to tone the colors down a little.
The teal colored card stock the fairy is attached to
was embossed and the clipboards were cut from
printed card stock.  A chipboard key was added.
I colored the image with pencils.

We hope to see your 
Back to School
Projects at
Glitter in Sparkle!

Cute As A Button August Inspiration

Hi all!

Today I'm on the 
sharing an altered notebook I created using

I gathered my materials.
A Composition Notebook
Solid card stock
Autumn themed DP
The image which I colored with pencils

Next, I covered the notebook cover with the card stock & DP.

I fussy cut the image and gathered some embellishments.,
3 leaf shaped buttons from my stash
Lawn Fawn wood word (Story)
A strip of card stock

I adhered the embellishments above and ended up adding
some washi tape on the top on bottom of the card stock strip
and thought a little something else was needed, so added sequins.
Finished product

Aug/Sept Challenge at MHKDesigns

It's time for a new challenge at

Just like every month, we have a prompt
for you to use as inspiration
unless you use something from
MHKDesigns. In that case you can go with
Anything Goes.

Here's the prompt.

My project is a mixed media canvas

I started by adhering crumpled tissue paper with gel medium
to the 10" x 10" canvas to give texture.
I used acrylic paints and metallic screen print ink
to cover the tissue paper.  I used gold metalIic ink on the edges. 
The image was colored with pencils and fussy cut

I added lace, chip board scrolls and paper flowers.
