RANGER'S DESIGNER CHALLENGE
I struggled with this challenge as to what to do. My dear husband, bless his heart, asked me what I started in, and what was my "thing." (I never really knew he thought this deeply.)
I said "oh, I suppose my Row Houses, like in my blog header." "Well then, do them ," he said. I LOVE that man!
The peak here is Grungeboard with Rusty Hinge and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks then the gold is PP as a paint in the diamond pattern.
We were sent PP, Mists and a frame. The rest was up to us. I always like to build the houses from chipboard, add papers, stamps, mists, and photos with frames of some sort. Some are painted with PP and water in a paste. Some are sprayed them stamped with acrylic paint.
Two frames have rub on adhesive designs with the dry PP brushed on. This was very cool, I thought. Three children are from Tim's Lost and Found paper stash. The other 2 are from Collections. The large blue Grungeboard flourishes were painted with PP and water by brush and Misted with a spray.
The little gal in the Memory Frame is so cute with the bow. The metal pieces were painted with black acrylic paint and sprayed with Perfect Pearls Mists as was the frame. I also used Tim's Shabby Chic paper stash throughout.
Many of the layers of trims were different edges from Tim's Alterations On- the-Edge dies. Too many to name.
The metal star is from Vintaj. You must go see Jess at BeadSmith's and Sizzix's booths at CHA for cool new tools for embossing metal!!! She is brilliant!!!
Be Good to Each Other......
