Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #16

Hi!
I am excited to share with you from Craft Hoarders Anonymous today.
 
Most paper crafters also love school and office supplies. We love crayons, markers, shaped paperclips, notepads, folders, and more! If you hoard school and office products, get them out! Use them up! Use at least one item that is really a school or office supply on your project. 
Our Sponsors: Heartfelt Creations, Crafty Secrets, Lindy's Stamp Gang
 
This challenge came at the perfect moment -I just started college classes.
I couldn't just carry a plain ole notebook-could I??
 
I altered a composition book using Heartfelt Creations Designer Paper.
I love fussy cutting their paper.  I really didn't want a lot of bulk on top since I will be using it a lot, I fussy cut flowers.  To add some WOW-I distressed the edges with vintage photo distress ink and added Bisque liquid pearls
to the centers.  When adding them to your project, put some flat and add dimensionals to some to overlap and add depth.
The pearls are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.
 

Now-you've got to head over the Craft Hoarders Anonymous blog and enter Challenge #16 yourself!!  You could win some fabulous prizes!!

Thanks to Gloria for allowing me to guest design with her and her fabulous Design Team!!

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
