September Fab 4 Flamingo Scraps Project

Wow ! Was all I could say when I saw this month's Flamingo 4 products. Yes, I started out in one direction, but ended up going another.That's what I love about doing F4 projects. You end up creating things with items you would never think about putting together. I am into altering things and junkin' it up a bit, so I made a tag. I'm really happy about how it turned out.

I used my Cameo to make the quote, cut my pumpkin in half so it would fit the length of the truck, and yes, I did jack the truck up a bit. LOL! I used Cream Seam Binding , Vintage Photo Distress Stain, and Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Spiced Marmalade for the bow on the tag.

Here is the products that we were given to use:

Here is my project:

Old vintage layout using the Flamingo Scraps Warehouse Box Papers

This layout was made with papers from the Warehouse Sale Box — Paper Box. These boxes are packed full of goodies and you may or may not get the papers used on this layout. It is the Toy Box Collection by Crate Paper. Be sure to check out the other Warehouse Sale Box — Combination Box and the Warehouse Sale Box — Embellishment Box these boxes are filled with all kinds of goodies. And be sure to check out Flamingo Scraps new products from CHA Summer.

I used several different medias on this layout. I actually added some Heidi Swapp Color Shine Tinsel and mixed it with Heavy Gel Medium and then used a stencil from Prima-Crackle.

Next, I fussy cut out one of the black and white graphics from the paper and used my Prisma colored pencils and Gamsol to blend the colors.

I used burlap and cut it in strips to add to the top and bottom of the layout and used Tim Holtz buckles to add some metal.

I also used some Fancy Pants Cork Shapes Arrows inking them up with Prima Chalk Ink Edgers Rusty Bucket. I also used a Tim Holtz Adornments Charms and some Prima Tiny Junkyard Findings Vintage Trinkets — Sampler.

After finishing this layout I thought I have these Melissa Frances 3 Flower Hanger — 4″ and Melissa Frances Double Flower Clip. I love the way they look on the wall and you can interchange your layouts with different ones.

Products Used:
Heidi Swapp Color Shine Gold
Tim Holtz Distress Paint Salty Ocean, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn and Picket Fence

Golden Heavy Gel Matte

Remembering Loved ones Journal Pages

I used the Echo Park Beautiful Life collection and just to show you that you do not have to only use your paper on Scrapbook pages and cards: you can also use it in your journaling. I also used one of the Prima Julie Nutting Mixed Media Doll stamps. I so love these doll stamps and you can use them for many different medias. I have done many canvas using the doll stamps and each one takes on her own personality. I also used on this Journal pages Claudine Hellmuth Studio Kit: Mediums. I love the multi-medium matte, gesso, and black gesso. Make sure you stop by Flamingo Scraps to pick up these awesome sets.

Here are both pages together. I used the Multi-Medium Matte to adhere all papers to the journal page, including the poem that I cut out from the Cameo, that way, when using the Medium, it will secure them down really well. I have tried others but always go back to Claudine's.

I used a Camera Clip from Prima and used a black sharpie marker to color it the color that would show up. The silver would not show up.

Here are some of the flower stickers from the kit that I used popped them up and glittered them. Then, I tucked a clock from the Prima Wood Icons in a Box – Typewriters & Clocksand and some Prima Vintage finds metals.

Here is the Prima Girl that I stamped the dress and hair 3 times and added layers to make her hair fuller and dress longer. I just love playing with these stamps...there are so many things that you can do to make them look different.

This last month was a difficult month for me to go through every year. I lost my father and my brother 26 years apart but they were the same age in August. I have not written what I want to on it yet, because I think that should be personal. But, feelings this last year on the Death dates has kinda made me remember all the positive influences that these two men instilled in me forever.
