Friday Challenge - Metal/Metallics

Friday, August 7, 2015

ANNOUNCEMENT!! Frosted Designs is making a small change! Starting this month, we will move to one challenge a month! That means that you have all month long to play along and join in the fun! 

****************************************************************************

Welcome to this month's challenge.  This is Joni Parker and I hope you are having a wonderful summer (or whatever season it may be in your locale).

 I am challenging you to use Metal or Metallics on your project this month.  You can use metal embellishments or you can use metallic colors like Gold, Silver, Bronze..etc.

I created this layout using mostly "extra" scraps that were laying around my scraproom (instead of trying to put all the pieces away, I figured this was a better way to clean it all up).

I chose a neutral background since I wasn't sure what colors I was going to use.  and I knew I was going to use metals to highlight the topic of the layout being my son's new braces.



I used a metal clip (Hello) from Maya Road and also some of those old Fastenator staples/bars.  Also, the letters I chose are "glittery" which enforce the metallic theme.


I also added a couple silver metal buttons, used a metallic spray ink and some more metal staples/bars.


Enjoy and Happy Scrapping!!  Check out these wonderful samples from our Design Team!!



Connie
I used an Iron work pattern Cupcake wrapper and tiny charms are inserted around frame.
Not sure what the Besties name is.
