IF I COULD SAVE TIME




OK, Here is mine for the challenge "March SGC Deux" that Manda (Manda_K) started at Swirlydoos..You had to use your misting dying skills any way you could...I Glimmer Misted in Watermelon. the cardboard, the flowers ,and my journaling card. I started with a piece of cardboard which I painted with Gesso, then while it was still slightly damp, I misted with GM. It bled slightly but beautifully. Then when it was completely dry, I GM'd some more. Then I used TH crackle paint in a few spots in Green. I used the butterflies I shared with you in the new butterfly thread at Swirlydoos, I used the Prima flowers that I enhanced with Rock Candy Stickles and Marth Stewart Microbeads, I made the big Faux Prima Romani Rose flower in the corner twisting strips of white gauze rolling them and glue it to circles of cardstock, then just formed a rose shape in the center, glued on some pearls and sprayed with Glimmer Mist!! I didn't know what direction this LO was taking, but as always it seemed to come together...Now I can start on my Swirlydoos April DT LO's!!!!

I already commented on Scrapbook.com, but I keep noticing other things I love. The frame around the journal block and the corrugated cardboard. Also loved the song from the early 70s!
