some Exciting News and Show & Tell

Lets start with my exciting news.... That would be that I was picked for the 2011 Design Team for the awesome chipboard company Words or Whatever (WOW). When I saw the email and the subject was Design team Application, I though "oh yeah, a thanks but no thanks".... But it was a YES. It will be a bi-monthly thing which I am very happy with. Not as much pressure to get things done on time etc... I received an awesome selection of goodies in the mail from Suzanne and I have been playing with some of them already. Here is a couple I have completed.

Professional "Dance" Poser:



The word DANCE is from WOW. I am usually one for leaving my chipboard raw or simply spraying it with Glimmer Mist, but this time I decided to get all messy and jazz it up a bit.

* First I inked with pink all over
* Then grabbed a deeper pink and inked just the top half trying the get a smooth transition between the colour change
* Then using purple did the same but from the bottom.
* I added purple "frinkles" just to the bottom edge of the word
* Sprayed the whole word with Pearl Glimmer Mist
* And last but not least, the messiest part - used Dimensional Magic all over to give it....you guessed it....some dimension!



I loved how the LO has turned out, and better still, the photos so suited this months (sold out) She's Savvy Kit. I have added a few things, but the majority is from the kit...

M164 - Car Desk Tidy

Very cute little "Chev" which I am sure my little man will love when he is a little bit older. For this I have covered it all in Cardina Ink, followed by Kindy Glitz for the lights and bumper bars. The black outline I have simply used my zig pen and coloured it in.



I again used Pearl Glimmer mist, then once dry gave it a light coat of dimensional magic (my new best friend)



Included is a pen tidy, but I havent used it this time. I actually didnt put these items in the Chev, my daughter Charlotte did. I am wondering if she might just claim this for her own :)



So there you have it...My first DT reveal for WOW. I have used these chipboard products previous to joining the DT which were purchased from my LSS Scrapbooking Delights. This is what I have done recently.

A Mothers Love: This gorgeous scroll/swirl...... simply sprayed with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist





St George Dragons - Inked with Red & Black, outlined with faux stitching around the word DRAGON and then sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist.




All Clean - These beautiful journal blocks - I removed the centre piece, inked the outer and then returned the inner before journalling on.



Lotsa Bubbles at New Year - Again I have inked and used glimmer mist on this stunning butterfly. This LO is actually this months STUCK?! 1st February Sketch, using one of the amazing kits from Peta at Scrapbooking from Scratch.





So there you have a huge post full of Wonderful WOW products. I love how these pieces are original, well thought of and best of all, very reasonably priced. Cant wait to show you some more soon....

Until then, take care
