Colors of the Sea

          The challenge over at Oozak is to use the below photo inspiration to design a project based on these colors.
So many beautiful colors to inspire you!  I've made a mixed media project and used one of my newest stencils by Judikins called Nouveu Fern,

....... Golden Gel Medium to fill the stencil along with Golden Glass Bead Gel.

My favorite markers Copics were used to color this Michelle Perkett digi image.....

......... Memory Box Fresh Foliage Die.

.....and several beautiful paints from Golden Fluid Acrylics.  Hope you'll join us for the Challenge!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  :0)

Humor Us

     If you like making fun, humorous projects, we have the perfect challenge for your over at Oozak!  Create a card or any other project that you think is funny, and post it over at Oozak.  There's an additional chance to win a prize if you post about one of the Oozak products the design team has linked.  All you need to do is mention which craft product  linked is your favorite product to use, and you'll be entered to win a $10 Oozak gift certificate, eeeeee fun stuff!  I've always been a fan of Oozak shopping long before I was a member of the dt because of the wide variety of products, great prices and fabulous customer service.  (No one told me to say this, it's my personal experience.)

     For this challenge I made a wall hanging using an old frame I found in my supply of stuff that had been tossed in the basement.  Does anybody else have this type of supply store in their house?
     The wood was a very light natural color so I gave it three coats of Golden fluid acrylic and it came out with a beautiful, semi-gloss finish.  I think it's a little easier to see here:
     My paper is Echo Park ~ So Happy and I added  Ranger Stickles in Star Dust to random stripes on the paper, as well as to the sentiment, just because I like glitter!  I used my very favorite Copic X-Press It tape to adhere all the decorative papers together.  I hope you'll join us and thanks so much for stopping by.  :0)
