There is a Round Robin Challenge going on for the month of March at Swirlydoos. I was first up and 3 others will lift this LO. You had to do a twist..To scrap something on the LO that you have never done before.
I loved the polished stone technique that Gabriellep did in a tutorial she created...I on the other hand don't always have time to devote to the fine details of a LO. (My 40 hour work week gets in the way) So, I Googled images of Gems , saved some photo's of a few I really liked, extracted the image in Photoshop CS3, tweaked the color and details and printed them up on glossy photo paper and detailed highlights with a white gel pen. Walla!!! Faux Gems!!! I then outlined them with bronze puffy paint. So that is my twist of something I have never done before...Faux Gems. The photo is my nephews daughter Nikki, on a visit to my home with her Grandma (my little sissy)...She loves to dance, and this was her adorable pajama tutu..
