I took today off as soon as the date for PTI SAF was announced. For some reason I just couldn't get started & of course, there were some interruptions. I'll probably accomplish more tomorrow than today & I work tomorrow--LOL! Figure I may as well post the 2 projects I've done so far.
Didn't buy a bag of large sticks, but hubby eats a popsicle every day so I recycled one of the sticks to try out the bangle technique for the Accessories Challenge . What a fun project & now I'd like to make a big one. I used gold Lumiere paint which is absolutely gorgeous in person. Then I heat embossed the little heart from PTI Heart 2 Heart #2 with Zing Grapefruit ep & added tiny black gems.
Love all the sketches for the Patterns Challenge & it really helped me to have the dimensions. I also immediately was drawn to the braided twine flowers for the Threads Challenge, so combined the two using Nicole's sketch.
I used the smallest Snowflake Flurries die for the flower base & leaves from Friendly Flowers stamped in Spring Moss. The sentiment from Take 3 Summer is stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa on a Vintage Cream panel. A strip of Spring Moss cardstock was stamped with a dot from Harvest Berries in matching ink.
Hope you've had a great day & I'll be catching up on blogs soon. Thanks so much for stopping by.
Edited to add: Entering the challenge at SSS Wednesday.
