Hello everyone. Shanna here with my very first post for Marion Smith. I am even more excited that we are doing a special blog hop this week joined with Petaloo. Make sure you come every day this week for some special inspiration and be sure to visit the Petaloo Blog.
So with graduations happening everywhere, I thought I would create a card and a gift.
I found this cute little Scrabble notebook at Michaels and thought it would be perfect to alter and fix up!
For the card, I had some graduation chippie pieces which I first cover with gesso then with a black gelato. I layered some Posh papers and inked the edges black for a distressed look. I finished the card off with some gorgeous flowers from Petaloo. Don't they go so well?
For the notebook, I glued some paper down and trimmed the edges off as the corners were rounded.
Again the chipboard pieces got a coat of gesso and I used the black gelato on the graduation cap. I wanted to add more pink to the project and decided to have fun with some of the powders from the color lab kit. I added the powder with some gloss gel and a paintbrush to the "unlock you future" piece.
Aren't these petaloo flowers just gorgeous and a wonderful addition to the Marion Smith papers I picked to work with. They went so well with this creation and I love how it turned out.
So don't forget to check things out over at the Petaloo Blog.
