Fun with Scraplets
Hi there, Sam here with a LO to share with you tonight.
What I love most about this LO is the Corner Word Scraplet that I have used on it. I love the versatility of the Scraplets. This piece of chipboard in particular had a lot of things happening
I started off by applying a coat of white Gesso all over the chipboard. I then added some texture paste using a tattered angels mask. After the texture paste was dry I went over a few sections with some crackle paint - being sure to keep away from the glasses and the smaller words. Once the crackle paint was dry I gave it a quick once over with some watered down white paint........... just to dull it a little bit. The glasses are heat embossed with silver then I added a diamonte to each corner or the glasses. The word "tan" and "bikini" were done with Smooch Ink, which I then used some water and a paint brush to give it a faded effect in the middle. The word "sand" was covered in kindy glitz (not that it shows up overly well here), and the "sun" was covered with some tacky glue and then I used foil over the top of it.
The thing that I love about this particular piece of chipboard is that it proves that you do not need to stick to one "Technique" when using chipboard, the possibilities are endless and I love playing with Scraplets to work out new things to do.
I also have a flower obsession, and I just love this mermaid. This paper was perfect for a LO of my daughter at the beach because she is like a little mermaid and would stay in the water forever if I let her.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you have a wonderful evening................. and don't forget to get your entries in for this months colour challenge for your chance to win some great Scraplets :)
