Huge thank you's to all who visited my blog during the the Blog Hop. I loved reading every single comment. Before the hop started I had grand intentions of replying to every single post, but as you can imagine, with 645 comments I just couldn't. Thank you to everyone who had such kind things to say about my project. I hope you will visit me here again soon!
Welcome to everyone stopping by for the Pink Paislee Blog Hop! I hope you are enjoying all of the fun and creative things you are seeing on the design team blogs. Don't forget as part of the Blog Hop to leave me a comment to this post anytime between July 9th and 11th to have your name entered for one of 12 fabulous Pink Paislee Prize Packs! Winners will be announced on the Pink Paislee blog on the 12th.
The project I want to share with you is this fun little vintage inspired decor piece. If you know me, you know that I love shabby and vintage so you can just imagine how excited I was over a line called Vintage Moon!
For this piece, I used a mix of Vintage Moon papers, Paislee Press Ons, our clear stamps, glitter, and our new Top Siders chipboard. The tree here is actually the branch on the paper with the owl.
For the quote, I used a rub-on phrase on a piece of pattern paper and trimmed it out. I adhered it with a foam square to the top of a Top Sider. I adhered the Top Side with foam squares to the top of a thin sheet of mica. I added a small rub-on bird to the mica and then adhered it to base piece with a foam square. There are lots of layers going on with this project!
The image I used is this great vintage image. To give her a dimensional look, I printed the photo on plain, smooth cardstock three times. I cut her out of each photo, two with her parasol and one without. I stamped our new butterfly stamp on a piece of shimmery vellum and adhered it to the back of the piece without the parasol. I then adhered the winged girlie to the top of the other two layers. To add color to the girlie, I dug out my craft chalks and applied a bit of subtle color.
So how about a fun freebie? If you love this little girlie as much as I do, head over to Fairy Daivs and Friends (www.fairydavis.com) and download her for free. To make it easy to find her, here is the exact spot to go to in the store: Umbrella Girl.
Okay, so get hoppin' and go visit the rest of the team! Don't forget to leave everyone a comment for a chance at one of those fun give aways!
I never would have thought my name would be on that list, especially after they announced there were 438 entries. I am so excited to move on to the next part of the audition! I can't wait to play with some of Chatterbox's great new products!
Yesterday Emma discovered a ray of sunshine streaming in the window of my scrap room. She held out her hands and exclaimed that she could catch the sunshine and hold it in her hands. As luck would have it, I had my camera right next to me and grabbed this shot. I love that I was able to capture her moment of magic and discovery. Oh to be four years old again and to believe in catching and holding a ray of sunlight.
