CHA projects for idea-ology...

hello!

I thought that today I'd share 3 of the projects that I made for tim's idea-ology booth and show a few of my MOST FAV things from his new release...


I LOVE the new correspondence papers which were the inspiration for this piece...
you'll see them on 
also the base it's sitting on...

I LOVE the heart hanging from 

I also LOVE the new ephemera package (emporium) that coordinates perfectly with the papers...

under that collage is a piece of the 

 the cute girl is from the new 
that is one lovely box full of goodies...
I'm addicted...
as you'll see...
I used them on all 3 of today's projects...

the new heirloom rose she's wearing was altered with one drop of alcohol ink...

the alpha parts framed (everyday & adventure) were lightly covered with gold embossing paste to change them from black to a textured vintage gold...


 my art parts film strip frame is the base for this piece...
I'll be sharing the faux gilded technique that I used to alter it soon...
make sure you have 

or...if you're impatient like me...
you'll find the how-to scoop on 
there's still 7 days to enter!
I hope you can join us...
psst...there will be PRIZES!


here's a side shot to show the dimension...

they are both stamped on newsprint, that I added to my clearly for art (CFA), with glue n seal...
the CFA allows for dimensional layered stamped images that are very strong & sturdy...
so fun...

this photo shows that little red heart charm, embossed with red geranium and a little remnant rub inside...



next up...
this project started on a vintage tray that we found at an antique store...
I'd say it's about 6 x 8 inches...

it starts with a small black book, layered with a vintage doily and then the fun stuff was collaged on top...

once again...I chose a Photo Booth girl...
when I like something... 
I REALLY like something
can't quit using it...

LOVE LOVE LOVE 
I toned down the shiny silver with a tiny bit of silver & gold embossing pastes...
I  just finger painted a very thin layer on & let it dry...

I used lots of stuff from 

the little sprigs are the AWESOME deco sheets applied to CFA, then die cut...


there's a new flash card (elementary) stuck into the pages of the book...

a pair of vintage glasses were the finishing touch...
this was a blast to create!


here's another fun piece...
this uses the new foundry frames...
I WILL be ordering 100 just for me...
I will never run out of them...
they are AWESOME!

and inside the frame?
she's tinted with archival inks...

the base paper is the new correspondence, added to a 6 x 6 canvas with...
you got it...

the paper was stenciled with tree branch archival & the polka dots stencil...
you'll see the new ruffles stamp along the bottom...


I hope the next photo shows how cool 
it's the perfect vintage shimmer that is NOT glitter, so it won't be popping off...
no mess...I like that!

I like that the deco sheets work with punches...
that's how I added the bling to 
 that make the flower centers...


I didn't take a photo of the finished piece after I put it into an 8 inch square  
black shadowbox frame...
I forgot...

shhh...
what happens on the blog, stays on the blog...
I stole this from Paula's blog...
hmmm..
I guess the watermark is a clue...

and the new sentiment was a good fit...




ahhh...that was fun...
you should be able to click the photos to enlarge them...

now I'm off to work on a tutorial for a brand new F U N & E A S Y
technique...

stay tuned...

I hope these pieces inspire YOU to...

make art!

ps...
FYI...
I just found a SALE PAGE...
it has stamps, SiSi's, and one of my most favorite tiny text stamps...
the sale ends tonight...
HURRY!
