Made with love and Rustic Home Fundamentals

My brother and sister-in-law recently attended a reunion for her family. As you can imagine lots of pictures were taken in a variety of configurations but there was one picture in particular that I felt deserved some extra attention, and just in time for a birthday gift too.


Once I adhered the patterned strips from Rustic Home Fundamentals paper pack, I mixed a touch of yellow with white watercolor paint to create a cream more compatible with the Colonial White cardstock used and then “splattered” to add some additional texture using our medium-flat waterbrush.

After allowing a few minutes for the splatters to dry, I finished embellishing with Thin Cuts and ribbons. Here’s a complete list of materials used:

X5776 Peacock CS (E)
X5775 Sapphire CS (E)
X5778 Saffron CS (E)
X5789 Sea glass CS
1388 Colonial White CS
Z3262 Rustic Home Fundamentals
Z3282 Rustic Home Ribbon pack
Z3260 Thin Cuts – Hearts
Z3257 Thin Cuts – Love
Z3132 Watercolor Paints
Z3226 Waterbrush – Medium Flat
Z2060 Thin 3-D Foam Tape
Z553 Bonding Memories Glue Pen
Tape runner 
        
        (E) indicates this color is also part of the Enchantment Cardstock Combo Pack X5781

To turn it into a birthday gift, I placed it in a memory frame purchased at a local craft store and Voilà “Happy Birthday, Sis”.

Superheroes – Craft Style

image

Recently I attended a weekend scrapbook crop with my friends aka ScrapBunnies.  The theme for the weekend was superheroes so we were Super ScrapBunnies – each with our own special crafting powers/abilities; techniques were deemed to be my strong suit. For our costumes we each created a chest plate to depict our special “powers”.

Above picture is of my finished project – how many of these techniques have you used in your papercrafting?
