A Cold Stare!

 
Hello there friends and Welcome!
It's my turn ~Geraldine~ here today to share with you a layout of my daughter Mackenna featuring some fabulous UmWowStudio chipboard pieces and Flair that I wanted to make the sole focus elements of the page. I chose the Branches and Bats to give the page a spooky vibe to go with that icy stare!
 
'A Cold Stare'

Dream a little dream flair
 
 The Chipboard has been coated in Tim Holtz Crackle paint and then inked with various distress inks,  Black Stazon and sanded to peel away for a weathered look.
Paper - 7DotsStudio.
Thanks for dropping by the blog and I hope I have given you some inspiration! Geraldine.

Believe Tag with Rhonda

Happy Tuesday crafty friends!  It's Rhonda here today to host the blog for you.

For my project today I created a feminine inspirational tag featuring the relief of the "Believe" sentiment from our Christmas Speech Bubbles chipboard.

"Be You-nique and Believe"

Believe. One of my good friends always says this to me. It's funny how this one little word can have such a profound and calming impact. When I saw this in the Christmas Speech Bubbles, I knew I wanted to use in as part of the inspirational message on the tag.


Both of my chipboard elements were colored with some Smooch in Lettuce and a touch of Frosted Acadia. To accent the delicate features of the Leaf Stems I added some crystals from Prima in a variety of styles.

UmWowStudio Products:

The 2 of Us Flair

Other: Tag Base, Papers, Stamp and Crystals by Prima. Smooch in Lettuce and Frosted Acadia. Be You-Nique sentiment from Primrose 3x4 Misc Me card by BoBunny, Copics and Ribbon. Ribbon Bow on Dress by Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper. Bell Doily Die by Cheery Lynn Designs.

Thanks so much for stopping on over to visit us here on the blog. Have a fabulous day!

A Little Bit O' Steampunk

cover full, uws, allassiter
 Hello UmWowStudio fans! It's Amy here today, to share a mini book cover. I was wanting a little book to house photos of our move from Kansas to Iowa, and I saw in my stash, I had a couple of 7 Gypsies book covers. I set straight to work with my paint, stamps, and UmWowStudio chipboard bits.
chip close, UWS allassiter
This was the first project I made right after moving, and I was needing to let go of some creative energy that had been building up....so I was not thinking much about the design, just keeping things in an L shape, and adding freely. Adding the Floral Flourish, my first UmWowStudio love (really, I am pretty sure I've used this piece about 10 times at least) gave a nice moving focus to the small 6x6 cover.
I hope to share future pages in the interior of this book, a little "moving journal."
Thanks so much for having a look today!
Loves,
Amy
