Another Design Team I tried out for....

I was really busy in November trying out for various Design Teams so my posts were few and far between. This one for Dreamweaver's Stencils. We were challenged to make 2 cards, a layout and dimensional item. Here is the first layout it's a picture of my nephew Zachary who is approximately 14 months old wearing a Westie Sweater that my mom had brought back from England for my son unfortunately I never took a picture of my son wearing the sweater. How dumb is that! I use an Ornament stencil with embossing paste called 'Pearlescent' by Dreamweaver Stencils and used Rose Glitter Ritz by In The Making Enterprises. I used a lot of Spellbinders dies as well as some silk poinsettia from Michael's. Paper was from Penny Black background collection that I found in a store which I thought went perfectly with the photo. Anyways I giving this layout to Zachary in a shadowbox for Christmas!

This is the dimensional item that I did. I had this frame on hand. So I took some Tim Holtz tissue paper and some Donna Salazar Christmas Chronicles using Modge Podge to apply glue to the  ripped up pieces of paper until I covered the frame. Then I colored the frame using metallic paint in silver and blue. I added some Golden medium called 'Glass Beads' in some of the areas to give some dimension. I used a Stencil called Bare Trees and Joy by Dreamweavers and embossing paste white.Applied Blue Lagoon Glitter Ritz by In The Making Enterprises. I took some black paint so the stencilling would show up.Again added some Spellbinders dies and blue silk poinsettias.
 Here were the 2 cards that I did. For blue ornament card I used the ornament stencil along with pine cone branch stencil by Dreamweavers. I also used embossing paste called 'Pearlescent' by Dreamweaver Stencils.
Anyways I didn't make the final cut for their team I was a Honorable Mention. But they at least took the time to email me and told me they would send me a little goodie bag.

Here is the last card that I did. I used different colors of glitter after apply the Dreamweaver stencil to acetate covered with 2 sided adhesive. After coloring my white cardstock using different colors of Fluid Chalk I laid the stencil down on top of colored paper and applied Top Boss using a pouncing motion. Then applied clear embossing powder and heat set. The I ironed the embossing powder off which left me a batik. Then using the stencil again I applied a white pigment ink which left me a ghost image.Pin It Now!
Thanks for stopping by!
