Best Buds

My 2 favourite girls ... this makes me happy!

They are constantly like that - under the dining table, rolling on the floor ... mainly J terrorizing Bubbles. Sigh!

Potpourri Bottle

Did a little tutorial for a feature over at Artz de Scrap and loved the ladies' takes on it!

Transformation from empty used bottle to this ...
... then finally this!

ATC ~ Bloom & Grow

This ATC is made from repurposed corrugated cardboard and splotched with a bunch of Mica Magic Inkpads. Parts of the edges are inked and embossed. The layered flower is distressed and stickled, while the leaf is stamped, distressed-embossed and cut-out. Got a few more stuffs I'm working on (at snail's pace) involving corrugated cardboard ...

A close-up of the textures from the various embossing effects and the metallic sheen of the Mica Magic Inkpads.

The 'Blossom' Shaker

This is what J and I get into when we have spare time at home. This 'shaker' was made in Aug'08 actually but I never got around to taking any photos until now. It looks a little beaten now from J carting it around whenever it pleases her.

The pink thing in the middle is actually J's drawing of Blossom of Power Puff Girls, her favourite cartoon character for some time now. That black smudge near the midsection is supposed to be the black band around Blossom's waist.J has decorated the shaker frame with drawings of swirls and smudges of Stickles. Also a close-up of the plastic see-through area with various sequins and beads which we sealed in to make the shaker sound. A relatively easy and fun piece to work with when it involves kids, plus all materials are repurposed from items lying around the house.
