Saying Farewell

I am officially in a funk... Serendipity closes today, and I am quite sad. I have loved the DT and te way Kristen ran the show around there and will miss it. The challenges and ideas the members and DT offered were top notch and they will be greatly missed! Ladies, you streched my creativity and were the perfect cure when I was in a rut! Thanks for it all, it has been a blast and I hope to find you again out there in scrap world.

These are just some of my favorite creations based on their challenges and crop themes...some brand new from my creating this week!

Scared of Misting?

Are you are scared of Glimmer Mist....Don't be! I was once you, and reluctantly spritzed layouts and hesitantly bought colors of mist that I thought I might use a squirt of. I have since begun using more and more Glimmer Mist and my absolute favorite color is the Haunted Shadow! It's a great shade of almost maroon, almost purple with a gold sparkle. I use it to mist on layouts randomly, but I also like the idea of controlling the area that is misted.

Here I used it for a random spritz or two AFTER I had the whole thing together... I like the un-misted space below the flowers that can be seen, I think it gives it some depth.


For this LO, I was playing with my new butterfly embossing folder/cutting die set, and decided to use the negative to bring in the design on the corner of the page and allow for a grouping of butterflies without them all being 3D. I added a half pearl to the misted butterfly for the head, just as I did on the die cut/embossed butterflies.
