The challenge this week is to use PEARLS AND LACE on your card. Be sure to visit all the DT's blogs as there are prizes at stake if you do, and we all love comments!

For my Challenge project I made a little wall or door hanging...

Painted it with gesso, and then pink acrylic paint
Used a lacey stencil and dabbed white over it
Paper pieced my Tea Time image with some Tim Holtz paper
Used copics and stickles and glossy accents
Trim and ribbon from my stash
Thickers glitter alpha stickers


and my new release creation is this totally fabulous Brewing Spells Gillian! Is this adorable or what?
I want to start a little book of spells for crafty recipes and techniques, color combos, etc and this was just perfect!
Details:
Copics and prismacolor pencils
Printed words on computer and distressed/inked
Grungeboard base with peeled paint, spiced marmalade and Concord grape inks
Paper is from the Eerie collection by Basic Grey
Misc dew drops
Crackle accents
the skeleton trim I found at Fabricland in the clearance bin

I will be sharing more "parts" of this book as it comes together.


The candy I am offering for my blog hop candy is some Tim Holtz goodies- some mini paper clips, mini safety pins, 6 pieces of 6x6 grungepaper, book of adage tickets, a few clear fragments, and I will add some die cuts on cardstock or grungepaper for you and/or some embossed cardstock using Tim Holtz embossing folders. If you would rather not have this added you can let me know.. you may have the dies and folders yourself!


To be eligible for my candy, simply leave a comment here - easy peasy! If you want to become a follower you are most welcome, but it is not required. I will draw for a winner on September 3 in the evening and announce on September 4.
