UmWowStudio and Bloglovin'

Hi everyone!

It's been a whirlwind of busy-ness here with the school year coming to a rapid close (OMG second grade here we come!), family in town, and some trips coming up! So life has kept me too busy to get too much scrapping done but I did want to share with you my layout that I've got up at UmWowStudio!!

I really loved working with the UWS chippies to create a layout with a girlie/grungy feel. The butterflies and the triangles helped me to do just that!

Here's some close ups of the butterflies:

I covered them with gesso followed by Kroma crackle medium. Next I used mists and powders to emphasize the crackle.

I left the triangles raw (plus some black sprinkles) the natural brown color of this chipboard!

When I snapped this photo, I laughed because my daughter looked so paparazzi ready ;) hence the title of the page.....

And one more important thing....I'm sure most of you know by now that Google Reader will no longer be available after July 1st. I've decided move my RSS feed to Bloglovin'. You can continue to follow my blog (and I hope you do!) by clicking on this symbol in my sidebar:

Actually to "one step" move your Google Reader subscriptions you can click on this link:

Hope that helps!

Of Feathers and Friends

Hi everyone!

This month at XOXO Scrapbooking, the challenge is to use chipboard! You all know you've got some so pull out your chippies, show us what you like to do with them and link you project to XOXO Scrapbooking for a chance to win more chippies from Words or Whatever (WOW)!

WOW has been gracious enough to sponsor this month! Here's what I made with the beautifully shaped chipboard they gave me.....

Hence the title of my post.....:) These two little ones are as different as can be in appearance and temperament but they are such close friends :)

I painted the chippies with metallic acrylic paint, covered them with glue and micro beads, then painted over the micro beads with more paint. 

A mix of different media layers here...

So for your chance to win some WOW chipboard, coming along and've got all month!
