A little out of the box!

Hi guys, I have a couple projects to share with you today that are both a little out of the box. First up, I have a mixed media altered room sign I made using My Little Shoebox "Garden Party" pp. If you would like more info on how I made it, check out my YouTube video!!

And guess what...all the new My Little Shoebox CHA Summer 2011 releases are already available at 2Peas In a Bucket! All 6 new lines, as well as the Unity stamps that go with them.

And more...if you go to the MLS Blog, you can see so many projects that the MLS DT made using the I-Rock (Imaginisce sent them to the DT), as well as instructions on how to be entered to win one for yourself! Make sure to leave a comment there too and let them know I sent you :)

Ok, back to my altered art piece! The metal studs I added using the I-Rock and the chipboard birds and hanging sign are of course Scrapmatts laser-cut chipboard.

And one more project to share - a layout, but slightly out of the box. The background for this is a sheet of "Punky Playground" from Punky Sports - a 12x12 corrugated cardboard. The pp is Ruby Rock-It - they sponsored our DT and sent us some pp and die-cut tags and dimensional stickers - thanks! And the sketch is by Becky Fleck of Page Maps - the Punky Sprouts DT were guest designers for PageMaps for July - check out the rest of the DT's work and the awesome sketches HERE! This one is called "Who Knew That Mickey Tastes Good Too"....another lighthearted and fun LO from your truly :) Almost done with our Disney album!

Cherish Life - Scrapmatts Mini Album

Today I'm posting my Scrapmatts mini album that altered - this one was really fun to make and it's a nice size too. The front was made up of little puzzle pieces that I altered separately and inked and then put back together. And to go along with the fairy and butterfly garden theme (the pp and die cuts and metal charms and rub ons are all from the Pink Paislee "Butterfly Garden" line) I decided to make the photos a little "otherworldly" as well - I made them black and white and made the contrast of the black and white really sharp, and then printed them on white self-adhesive mulberry paper. Then I adhered them to pp from the collection. Since the mulberry paper was somewhat see through, the images from the pp show through a bit - I think the kids ended up looking like fairies...but not sweet fun fairies - more like fairies from a darker, slightly more sinister world. Tim Burton fairies versus Disney fairies. But that's right up my alley :) If you want to hear more about the other techniques and stuff, check out my video that I made about it.
