DT projects I completed this month

This month I had the privilege of being a Guest Designer over at Scrapperie. Thanks so much Sandi!! Sandi puts together incredible kits. I made 3 LOs and 2 cards so far and have oodles of paper and supplies to still play with in this kit. The June kit called Salon de The featured Basic Grey Marrakech and My Mind's Eye Grow & Bloom papers.

Peacock on the Loose
I decided on this page when I saw the peacock paper in the kit. I remembered these photos of the Peacocks from the zoo. To make the tail feathers I inked the chipboard first with the dark blue ink included with the kit and then inked it again with a brillance inkpad color Jade.

Hello Card
I used the cuttlebug to emboss this card added some Basic Grey and some chipboard which was an addon to the kit and a very quick card is ready to go.

Reach for the top card
I found the pattern for this kit in a past issue of Scrapbooks etc magazine. I traced out the pieces and for the tail I used the small stamp that was included in the kit. That stamp was perfect!!! Added some Making Memories alpha stickers and a cloud and its one of my fav cards.

Flower & Garden
I cut out the vine in the My Mind's Eye paper. It took FOREVER!!!! The chatterbox journaling tag was not included in the kit. These photos were from Disney World.

Hula Time
I did a lot of cut work on this LO also. Even cutting the background paper to slip the journaling spot under neath to not cover the flowers in the paper.

Finally this month's sketch over at My Sketch World

You Make me Smile
I just loved this dynamic sketch that Lucy created this month with the paper strips coming from under the photo.

I have been really bad lately

Its been a month since I have blogged!! OOPS!! I was think about doing it and have been horrible at actually doing it.

Let me start with my layout based on the May 15th sketch at My Sketch World! I choose to do a layout about Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. The icon for the park is a Lg Manmade tree that has a zillion animals carved into it.

Here is a detail shot of the chipboard tree.

The chipboard tree is from Maya Rd - which I sprayed the trunk with Brown Maya mist and then added an orangy brown paint on top of that to add some dimension to the trunk. For the leaves I inked them and then added some Green Glimmer mist. The bird is from We R Memory Keepers. The other animals are from recollections -Michael's brand. Green paper -Cosmo cricket, Brown paper -Scenic Route, Ribbon & buttons -MM, journaling tag -Heidi Grace.

June is exciting - its my month as a Guest Designer over at Scrapperie. The reveal is on the 14th so I will give you a little peek. Want to see the rest of the reveal go over to Scrapperie and check it out!!
