Altered Clock

Who would have thought that when I started submitting items to Scrapbook News and Review Magazine that I would have been asked to join the staff? And that I would still be there a year and a half later? Of course, I'm lovin' every minute of it and learning so much along the way.

A few months ago I got my hands on a stack of clearance Prima Paintables watercolor papers. One of the sheets was just begging to be turned into a clock. Who was I to say no? LOL So I grabbed my Prismacolor watercolor pencils and my aqua pen and got busy coloring. Next, I painted the frame a dark blue and added some yummy Prima crystals, flowers, and butterfly. Then I just stamped the clock numbers and added the clock mechanism. The one thing that doesn't show up in the picture is the shimmer all the pieces have thanks to a dose of Perfect Pearls.

When I first started working on the clock, my intention was for it to be a Christmas gift. Now that it's finished though, it might just find a permanent home in my scrap room.

More Layouts To Share

This first layout is from a trip to Stone Mountain last summer. As you can see from the pictures, the view from atop the mountain is absolutely amazing.

Flashback to the 70's

Let's take a magic carpet ride on a trip back to the groovy 70's. Both of these layouts are me, the first in 1976 and the second in 1979. Who could forget the shag carpet, gold linoleum, and fake wood paneling?

Cards, cards, and more cards

Thought I would share a few cards with everyone. As I was uploading these, I noticed a similarity - every card has just a touch of bling. OK, some more than a touch, but if it glimmers and shines it certainly can't be a bad thing.

All of these were in the June issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine. The July issue is up so head on over and take a look!
