I am an avid viewer and visitor of Scrap-it-Lah. I find their challenges quite interesting and thought stimulating.
This August, I am so happy to see the Philippines' very own Iris Uy, guest designing for the site. Well, the challenge is to create a layout with the following:
(4) dressing up a raw chipboard
Luckily, I had a layout (which I started in July but only finished today, haha!) that suits the requirement of this month's challenge. Here it is:
Stamping: See the words in the picture? Yes, it's Technique Tuesday's Favorite Memories by Ali Edwards.
Misting: I used Whipped Cream from Memories Mists.
Embossing and dressing up a raw chipboard: I got a wire dress form from Dusty Attic. Unfortunately, it didn't look good after heat embossing (I think I made it excessively and undesirably hot 'coz the paint and tinsel melted. For the record, it is my first time to heat emboss and I busted it up, LOL) so I just coated some portions with a Diamond Stickles. And whala! The crooked dress became a gorgeous frosted embellishment.
The papers, whimsies, fabric tickets and ribbons are all from Webster's Pages. Other materials: transparency - Teresa Collins; yellow flower, pearls and crystals - Prima; embossing tinsel and stickles - Ranger; pink ribbon - All About Scrapbooking; and punchers - Martha Stewart.
This is one of the best and my favorite among the LOs I've ever made. Why? Because,
> I've got to use my favorite brands
> I did not use any sketch
> I did not scraplift the design; and
> the subject is my everdearest daughter, Tien.
