Flip Book Swap

Well Hello friends,
I suppose you thought I took a Sabbatical, but actually I've been doing so many requested projects!  From shadow boxes, graduation albums and altered gift bags, I didn't take the time to take photos for my blog.  So without further delay, let me share this Friendship Flip Book I made for Mary Wooding over at Scraps Of Color.  Sweet Shirley was our hostess that got it all together.  SOC is closing this month.  My heart is heavy just thinking about it.  They are sisters I've actually not only connecting via on-line, but have arranged to meet in person.  Oh what wonderful fellowships we've had together.  And you know if we met, we visited a craft store in the city right?!!  Well back to my flip book, Mary requested pink and black combo.  Let me share the pages of which I used a Recollections 6 x 6 paper stack.  (Warning Photo overload)  Enjoy!!!

It's Finally Friday and I got a lot on my schedule.  I got an early start this morning in the craft room and thought I would create a card for a customer using this adorable Phoebe digital by Robert Jackson.  The sentiment is one of my favorite Verve's stamp.

Junior's canvas

This canvas was painted for my nephews room.  I can't wait until he visits us so he can play in the craft studio.  I'm going to try and teach him some techniques. He's only four, but he's smart.  Can't wait to see what he creates.  Check out the close ups below.  My next project will be printing his photos so I can catch up with  his scrapbook album.

My mother thought the canvas was wood.  I had to show her the technique.  Acrylic paint was used on some of the chipboard letters to bring in the colors of the paper by DCWV paper stack All About Boys/Sports. 

I'm loving the embellishments I used.  Some are VERY old.  I used stickers, metals and paper stack.

This photo was taken when he was two years old.  He loved to travel with his basketball.
The photo is attached to the two clothes pins so we can up date it with new photos.  

He's learning this scripture.  The OCD in me was upset that the scripture wasn't centered so I had to include some star stickers to balance it off.  I might work on it again just to balance it off.  Anytime I can, I love to use my handwriting.

Check out these old embellishments!  I purchased them years ago.  The sentiment was from a scrapbook convention back in the day.  The metal was at  Michaels back in the day.  I love the textures from the cheesecloth and templates.
