I was asked to be the guest designer this month for two Gutter Girlz Challenges! Here is my first one: Looking Back.
I used some reclaimed chipboard backing from a note pad for the door, and a inked it all over with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and then painted it with Antique Linen Crackle Paint. I sanded it lightly in areas and added the keyhole from my stash.... I cut out a window and used a bit of fabric to mimic a curtain and some ball fringe. misc sticker. The paper is SEI from a wonderful giveway I won sponsored by Unity and Wendy Chang. I used cardstock from that goodie box as well.
On the inside of the door is a picture of me and some lyrics from the song Wasted by Carrie Underwood. Journaling on the other side. The title is chipboard letters and hanging from the "g" which I seemed to have hidden is a key. The quote is from Unity as are the butterflies I cut out from random paper. I love butterflies! I used Stickles in cinnamon and champagne here and there and glimmer mist on the title. Gotta have some sparkle in there!
All in all I really like this. It seems to have been perfect for what's going on in my life lately.
Check out the Gutter Girlz for inspiration and join us! It's a great way to let it all out and have fun, ignore any "rules" and have fun!
