Creative Chemistry 102: Day One

 
It's taken all weekend but I have finally finished Day 1 of Creative Chemistry 102.  To be fair, it is Thanksgiving weekend in Canada which has slowed me down.  I just wanted to show you what I made for Day 1.  I LOVE my Distress Paints and I've learned more ways to use them!
 
Day 1: Distress Paints
 
I spent all day running around looking for the plastic numbers Tim used and I couldn't find them.  I know where they are... but Sunday was close day at Scrapbooker's Paradise:(  I ended up using those little Laminate letters from Michaels and the technique still worked.

 
The first tag is an Eroded Technique and lets just say 3x the charm...almost.  This one is going to take some skill!  The Industrial Tag on the end is a first for me.  I have never used the metal foil and I just had to try!  I have done this technique a lot with oven liner...but never like this!  I do love the foil.
 
 
On to Day 2 and it's all about STENCILS!  I can't wait to learn how to use all my new Stencils.  I need 3 more and I have them all.  Well, after I get my Crafty Mail from Simon Says Stamps!
 
HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my Canadian Crafters!

I coloured the Busy Beaver with Oxi…

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Make Over

Please be patient while my team and I (guys pictured below) rebuild my blog.

Due to unforeseen and sudden non communicated policy changes (by a certain online image hosting website) I have had to remove a lot of content I have built for my blog.  At some point my blog had a major system failure causing me to rebuild and start over.  Boo

Please note this change will not be "lipstick on a pig" and all future content will be AWESOME.  In the coming months I will be making adjustments to provide some of the best crafty eye candy out there.  YAY!


Thank you for your continued support, love and all around awesomeness!
And thanks a lot...
