Welcome to TAKEOVER THURSDAY! This is where I will invite fellow crafters to 'takeover' my blog and post a project they have done or share some wonderful tip/trick from their vault of creativity. For this weeks inaugural post, I handed my blog to one of my closest friends and 'partner in crime' against the norm.
Please give a warm welcome to Anita B!
Everyone can agree that there is nothing more exciting that getting a haul of new supplies. It’s inspirational and super fun to dive into something new, but after using it for a while we get bored and put it aside with the intent to revisit that product again soon (which we all know never seems to happen).
Recently I was looking through one of my storage bins and came across some older Jenni Bowlin and decided why not take it out and put a 2014 spin on my older papers.
I liked the look of the Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions (Red) which I sanded as well. It’s red on red so the variance in color hard to see in the picture, but in person it’s beautifully subtle. I had a scrap sheet from Prima’s School Memories Collection that I used to accent the red.
For embellishments I used my Tim Holtz Film Strip Ribbon, Prima Flowers, a Junkyard Findings Jean Plate (to which I added Tim Holtz Distress Paint Brushed Pewter), Wood Icons in a box-Cameras (I spritzed these with Perfect Pearls for a bit of glimmer), Studio Calicao Cork Hearts, a 'captured' cut out I had and some camera Washi Tape.
I added a final few accents with Silver Photo Corners, and American Craft's Amy Tan Plus One Twin Phrase stickers. I outlined these with my Signo White pen, then used my Ranger Black Fude Ball pen to add random accents.
I absolutely love it. I still have some sheets left in the Core Impressions paper pack, but I’ll keep working on using it. Why not?
