Creative Chemistry 102- Day Five

Last Day of Creative Chemistry 102 the effects of embossing!
 
OK, defiantly learned some new fun techniques here.  Although, it would have helped to have the right product on a couple of the techniques.  So I will be having a do over.  But hey, such is life.  The chalkboard technique is one I was really excited to try.  Happily, the Antiquities Frosted embossing powder is arriving tomorrow so I will redo my tag.  I do have a "what not to do" tag.
 
First up is the distress embossing powder.  I have never used this and it is really cool.  Just like sand paper.  The snowman you can't tell from the photo, but it's embossed with sticky powder and distress rocky candy glitter.  LOVE!   Oh and lastly... it would help if I could find gold leafing with sticky embossing powder.  When I find some I'll redo it.
 
The Shabby Chic technique is so great!  I loved rubbing the paint off.  The window is done with the tarnished silver technique.  I really love all the embossed layers.  What a cool way to create metal!  And now for the chalkboard technique...FAIL!  You can see here what not to do.  Clear embossing powder does not work...period!
Now that I'm a graduate I can play!

  1. Nicole, I found the gold leafing at Michael's. They had it in both the sheets and the loose flakes like he shows, but the packet of the flakes are double the price of the sheets, so I opted for the sheets of leafing and worked with that instead. In our store, I found it on the side wall over by the jewellry and beads with other leafing products, like the foil pens etc. :)

  2. Great techniques Nicole :)
    I still haven't taken the 101 course.
    As for the embossing foil, I have some from many moons ago..before we even heard of Tim Holtz…was there a time we didn't create with his products, lol.

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...
