First official Scrapmatts LO's!

I know I've been missing for a little while, but I've been busy scrapping. I have lots of LO's made, but today I will share 5, that I made for Scrapmatts.

The first one is "By The Pool", using G45 pp and some adorable trees and shells by Scrapmatts. The shells I sprayed with glimmer mist and the trees I covered with an ink chalk pad in 2 colors - a bronze and a sea blue.

Next up is "You Go Girl!". I painted the balloon white with acrylic paint - if you do this, try to keep the paint layer thin so the laser-cut design still shows through. The butterflies, I covered with ink chalk and finished off with crackle medium...isn't it a cool effect? The pp is Sassafras.

Next is "Imagination", again using G45 pp. Here' I left the chipboard raw, which is sometimes a nice effect too, adding some stickles to the butterflies. The lamp already came in black, and I added pp for the yellow light.

Another Sassafras LO - "How Much"...How much is too much? My DH took this pic to prove he was doing the sunblock right...LOL. I colored the kite with chalk ink and then with crackle medium again - the medium really brings out the brighter colors.

And last, another G45 LO about me! LOL At the bottom right, I used the frame as a mask and sprayed over it with blak Maya Road mist, and then I used it on the LO - these chipboard shapes make the perfect masks, and that way you can get eve more use out of them.

I'll be back soon to share a few more projects!
