Happy New Year,  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and wish you all the best in the year to come.  I'm so grateful and happy to be on the team for 2013 and would like to welcome all the new designers!!

Today I have two project to share with you today.  I hope you enjoy!


Imaginarium Designs Chipboard Used:

Clock & Compass IDS0062

Music Symbols with Holly IDFL0006

Remember Forever Together IDW0007

Materials Used:
Prima Printery Paper Collection, Folk Art Paint (Wicker White & Raw Umber), Gesso, and Crackle Medium.  I also used a fan brush to add some darker touchs on the clock face and the Musicaly Holly Swirl.  To alter the pieces I first gessoed and painted them then added the Raw Umber with the fan brush, and then added the crackle medium.  For the green on the holly I used some Tim Holtz Shabby Shutters Ink and for the berries I used some Rangers Stickles (Burgandy).


Imaginarium Designs Chipboard Used:
Vine Flourish IDFL0004

Flourish 1 & Variations IDT 0003

Oval Frame (Tinies) IDT0002

Materials Used:  Little Yellow Bicycle Wonderland Collection, Prima Stencil and Resin Pieces, Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Vintage Photo), Tim Holtz Distress Stain (Vintage Photo), and Tim Holtz Weathered Clock Die Cut, Gesso and Folk Art Wicker White paint.  To alter the chipboard I again first gessoed and painted the pieces and then used some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink and stain.

This is my take on one of Nadia's sketches from "Once Upon A Sketch"
