The Color Room

The first time I played at the 'COLOR ROOM'.....and I am featured! A big WOW for me!

A big thank you to all the wonderful and talented scrappies over there that made the time to comment on this LO. I sure will want to play again. The only hold back is..... 'TIME'

'CUTE CHARMUER"......enjoy the moments that make you smile....... This is my second and youngest son Damiaan. Made and born in Holland. Photo taken in New Zealand. He sure was a charmer..still is. Like all children, they steal your hearts.
Paper and flowers used here are from Primamarketing.

Letters for the alphabet, -Quickutz-Fiesta and CK Typist. Cut x6 stacked, glued then clear stickles applied.

Close up of the Dusty Attic chip used....DA0491- Fancy labels. Decked with gesso then, crackle paint from Tim Holtz-Ranger. Ink and clear stickles used to make it pop, but still keeping it soft to blend in to the color palette.I used a prima stamp, then embossed, added prima bling to pop it. Cut it in half, then placed behind the Dusty Attic chip. Which brings the attention to this product.....and of course the journaling. Photo's are distressed then hand stitched.....I always hand stitch..never with the sewing machine... I am too lazy to get it all up and going. Also I do this mostly while watching a movie in the evening etc, It gets me out of my studio. I used my new toy...Sew Easy....for the stitching.
DO WE NEED THIS?.....YES.....WHY? we do not wast time measuring. A must have for all the extra fancy patterns.

Tip: Easy Stitching are bringing out new patterns..Bigger and Just as much fun! Can't wait!

Look closely and you will see I used two mirror birds from Heidi Swapp. One under the bird cage-from Tim Holtz- The other smaller on top. I used ink and stickles on the edges to pop it.I have used two Martha Stewart boarder punches in this LO. The small flower boarder and the Train. The Train is made from core card stock.......a great asset for LO's with baby's or children. The flower is punched from scrap design paper inked then a prima pearl s placed on the last flower.The Prima bling is also used on the top of the cage.

Once again thanks for stopping by........may be we will see each other at the color room....
Catch you later....oxoxxo
