MME Sketch #32, Art Piasknownica

Been busy scrapping this week, very late at night when creativeness is buzzing.  Do you find you have a best part of the day/night to scrap? 
I love to put my project plan in place late at night - gather, make decisions, lay it out - and then in the morning look at it with fresh eyes, rearrange maybe - then stick down and photograph in the daylight.
Weeeeeell thats how it happens here (smile)

I've fallen in love with My Mind's Eye ever since the very first Lost and Found came out and pretty much everything  released since then - I've loved.  And the new CHA ranges are no exception..
Anyway I went for a looksee at their blog and decided to jump in and do Challenge#32-Layout which you will find HERE


Here's how to create the little dresses:
Cut out a figure from a photo 

 Seperate by cutting the skirt away

Cut a skirt the same length but wider so it can be pleated
(Spray with water to soften the paper as MME paper is quite thick)

And then repace with the paper skirt all ready to go on the project.
Isnt this floral just super pretty!!  (Product list below)

Here are both the skirts close-up which are from the one double sided paper.

Products used  (from Scrap Therapy)
Lost and Found Two:
 Blush 'Princess Special Paper (background)
Blush 'Favorite' Dance Paper ( cut out sparkly pink damask behind Hannah)
Blush 'Sweet' Bouquet Paper (used both sides for skirt)
Lost and Found Madison Ave 'Cherish' Trims (twine for buttons)
Lost and Found Christmas Trims
Kraft Fun Day Happy Days (buttons and two banner pieces)
Stella Rose Label Stickers (splendid)
Stella Rose Decorative Brads.


I've just started taking part, and boy is it challenging - in a good way.  It's pushing me to do things I never thought I would!

Graj w kolory #28

I made so many mistakes doing this piece.. everytime I got a shock with 'oh no', it just seemed to fix okay!  I must have done that (the oh no!) about a dozen times!

I loved the colour palette!
Though the mustard colour is a bit brighter 'yellow' on my computer than it is real life- grrrr

Recykling -glass
 Its about the use of any glass containers that lay around in your houses.
A jar, bottle or an old chipped drinking glass - all that can be refreshened and changed for further use. In a nutshell - the challenge is to upcycle some glass
 This was a reject vase and I love the shape of it

So with some glass paint - it was going to get a new lease of life!

The outline is now finished (this is the first time I've ever done glass painting!)

 And all coloured and finished.  I think it has a kind of  Japanese feel to it?
Every angle of the vase shows a new perspective


Carol from Tattered Inspirations sent some
using Butterfly Tiles to work with and I've created this for Global Scrappers
I love the tiles for my banner work :

Totally gorgeous work! Since I work afternoons, I scrap in the morning. Feels good to be creative before noon! Of course, the best days are when I don't work and can scrap from daylight until well after dark...
