Good morning....it's Joni Parker here hosting this week's challenge. Since it's the week before we celebrate Thankgiving here in the USA, what's more appropriate than a "Thanks" Challenge? This is perfectly adaptable to anyone not celebrating Thanksgiving....at least I hope everyone has SOMETHING to be thankful for?
I call this one "Thanks with a twist"
Challenge: Use word THANKS (or THANKFUL or THANKSGIVING, THANK YOU...etc)
AND the twist....You must also use one of the following: Ribbon/Trim, Twine or Washi Tape.
I created a 2 pager for a friend's 9x9 book I'm creating about her new baby daughter. I used Studio Calico Printshop papers from the Frosted Designs store...and I used some burlap from my stash (the Chevron is pink and matches the background paper, although it looks darker in my photo). The white trim, white flower and butterfly are from past Frosted Designs kits.

December is almost here, so I thought it was time to make my December Daily... I decided to make it from start to finish: in december, I plan to only add photos and journaling, because I know how busy I probably will be!
If you want to learn more about my homemade structure, you can look here, and you can also look at this previous video, because the idea is the same even if the size is different:
Check out How to Make Your Own December Daily Structure by Solange Jacquet on Snapguide.
For the inside page, I created 5 simple sketches and I repeated them all over the mini album...
To add interest to my backgrounds, I used a mini mask by Heidi Swapp and I sprayed some ink.
I wanted a very subtle color, so I created my own spray ink with my Magicals powders: I diluted very few "Shabby Turbine Teal" powder with lots of water in a mini mister, so that the color would be very light - these powders have very rich colors, so I really used a tiny amount of powder!
Here is a close-up:

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday!! It's Brandi here today with a quick mixed media/altered tag tutorial using this month's fabulous Rustic Beauty Kit!!
First, here's another look at this month's kit:
Isn't it amazing?!?!
And here's a look at the tag I created using goodies from the kit:
Isn't it lovely?!? I just love the colors in this kit and the goodies to play with :-) Here are the steps to create the look!
1. Grab one of the tags, ink, and something to apply the ink.
1. Create a base on the tag using the ink and stencil included in the kit.
2. Using the same ink, go around the edges of the tag.
5. Color directly on the stamp with the marker and mist a small amount of water. Stamp over tag sporadically until you receive your desired look!
6. Add some of the die-cuts from the kit around the tag and distress the edges.
8. Mist a generous amount of water over the trim and crinkle it up.
9. Once dry, unravel the trim and use for bow!
There you have it gang!!! Can't wait to see what you create!!!!!
