Club Scrap: Team Challenge for September 2016

Hello again.  Feels like a lifetime since I sat down to blog.  I will post an update on the happenings at Little Bits, non creative world, but for now I need to join in on the team challenge.

This month the challenge was to incorporate wood into the project and I have my go to project.  I just love this technique and it can be changed up in so many ways.  But before I start, lets take care of the housekeeping issues.  You should have arrived here from:  Jennifer.  If you got lost, you can start at the beginning: Club Scrap link.  Your next stop is:Deb

Ok for the project:  I used this months kit: Garden Shed and a frame from Pink Paisley.  Any similar frame would work.


 Using this product as a resist, I painted on several areas.

Close up of the resist. 

Using a variety of spray inks: Tattered Angels, Heidi Swapp and ColourArt Sprayed the frame until I had the right color.  I was using the ribbon in the kit and the paper for inspiration.  

Once Dry I cut a piece of paper and adhered to back and attatched a clip board holder.

Last step was to stamp words and images onto the frame using black Archival Ink. 

Now onto the sayings:

I cut a piece of cardstock 3.5 X 4" and then used a square die to make a "Polaroid Like frame.

I was going to play with the new digital files, but in the end fussy cut the sayings that were in the kit, stamped the frames and then cut a second rectangle to completely finish the back.  Nice.  

Once I had this all done, it just looked plain.  So off to Hobby Lobby and purchased some flowers, made an arrangement, tied a bow, added a bird, Finished. 

 The sayings can be changed as the mood strikes, or it can be used as a shadow box to display a photo.   I apologize for the photos, I redid my craft room and messed up my lighting.  I will fix it for the blog hop, i promise. 

Glad to be back crafting again,
See you next week for the blog hop and I will post a complete update on my Daughter's equestrian Journey to the Paralympics.  
Happy Crafting,


Garden Shed.
