Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday 10.26

Good morning all! This week our challenge at Frosted Designs is to use Paints, Mists or Inks on a card, layout or off the page project! How fun it that?! I LOVE using spray inks in everything from scrapbooking to mixed media projects.

In honor of this Halloween season, I created these little 8 x 8 canvases featuring these cute little trick or treaters! I used a lot of acrylic paints, spray inks, stencils, masks, and other bits and pieces of Halloween goodness that were lurking in my stash. This was such a fun project to do. I’ve been taking Christy Tomlinson’s Pumpkins and Cider Workshop, which is full of neat fall projects. She is so inspiring to me!!
Here are my canvases:

I call this one my Frankengirl 🙂



And my Pumpkin Spice Girl 🙂



I also created this cute haunted house scene that I featured on my Art Journaling blog, but figured I would share here as well. I think this may be my favorite thing I’ve created so far! I bought this plaster piece at Goodwill and revamped it into a scene for Halloween. I thought it looked kind of looked like a tombstone.



So have fun creating a project using paint and/or spray inks and be sure to link it up at Frosted Designs for the chance to win a super cute Halloween mini album kit from The Paper Trail!

Frosted Designs Sketch #28 and Sketchy Thursdays 11.17

Please excuse my tardiness in putting these up! We spent all day yesterday car shopping, then went to the twins’ basketball game. Here is my LO for Frosted Designs based on Sketch #28 by Karin:




I used some MME paper I found in my stash, and cute borders and glitter letter stickers I picked up on clearance at Hobby Lobby. This week’s sponsor is Vintage Street Market and they are offering a fabulous prize. In order to win, just create a LO based on the sketch and make sure to link it up to Frosted Designs by November 27 for a chance to win!

And now for my Sketchy Thursdays reveal…this week’s sketch was created by Heidi and I really loved the simplicity of design. I’ve been dying to work in my Art Journal for months now and I thought I would use the sketch as a page in the journal rather than a scrapbook LO. I created the background using Liquitex gesso, Adirondak alcohol inks, Tattered Angels spray mist, and Adirondak paint daubers. I used a couple of stencils and some white paint to create the doily effect. I Finished up by adding text using my beloved $1 stamps from Studio G and my more expensive letter stamps (that I used my 40% off coupon for!) for the title. Have I mentioned that I am in love with letter stamps lately?! 🙂





This week’s sponsor at Sketchy Thursdays is Lindy’s Stamp Gang and they are offering an awesome little mist kit (you should check out their colors, they’re amazing–I think I may need to try them out!) *Please note that since next Thursday is a holiday here in the U.S. this week’s sketch challenge will run for two weeks, through Wednesday November 30. So make sure to create your LO based on the sketch and link it up on Sketchy Thursdays for your chance to win.
Happy Scrapping!! 🙂

Sketchy Thursdays 11.3

Is it Thursday already?! 🙂 Time to reveal another one of Sketchy Thursdays inspirational sketches. This one was created by Diana:

This layout features my daughter, Macie. My husband is a private pilot (as a hobby) and Macie LOVES flying with him! They went last Saturday and flew over Kerrville and Enchanted Rock, then had lunch together while I ran the other kids around. It’s nice that they get that time alone together doing something they both love.

This week’s challenge is sponsored by Paper Issues!
Be sure to link your entry to the Mr. Linky in the sidebar on the Sketchy Thursdays website before 10 p.m. (EST) on Wed., Nov. 9th for your chance to win the prize this week! Can’t wait to see what you create!
