Scrap It Girl Friday Favorite!

Hi there crafty peeps!
Rachelle here sharing my weekly Friday Favorite project for





This week's favorite is a fall project I enjoyed creating.
Here is a look:
I really had fun working with these wooden leaves and canvas.
I used gold beads, light acrylic paint, and flocking.


I created the background using my burlap stencil by Tim Holtz Collection
using homemade texture paste.
Here is the receipe courteous of my fave design artist Gabrielle Pollacco.
  It's a really easy recipe, quick to make and super inexpensive! 
IT REALLY WORKS WELL!!!!
Just like the store version.

TEXTURE PASTE/MEDIUM RECIPE
1/2 cup Baking Soda or Talcum Powder
2 Tablespoons white school glue
1-2 Tablespoons White Acrylic Paint
(some water may be necessary)

INSTRUCTIONS:
I took an air tight container and put in my baking soda.  I then added the glue, acrylic paint and started mixing. I just mixed to get a smooth consistency, I added a few drops of water to get it to the consistency I wanted.  There are many types of texture mediums in the store, from light to heavy, so the amount of water you add will depend on the heaviness of the texture you are looking for.  Done!
(The mixture keeps well in the air tight container, I just checked it and it's still perfectly usable....some of the moisture was floating on top, I just gave it a stir and it was good to go!)

Gabi said she now uses talcum powder and it works well. I like using the baking soda.

Well that's it for now gang!

Frosted Design November Kit!

Hi there FD friends! Rachelle here today to share a layout created with the November Kit-Rustic Beauty. This kit is filled with gorgeous paper and elements you will so enjoy creating like I did. Let's take a look.


  "Beautiful Eyes"

I so enjoyed creating this layered layout using the peach and green tones. I applied a textured background using the kit stencil, inks, and spritz. I distressed the edges then ink them.

Here is the kit:

Isn't it a beauty? I complied lots of the embellishments to the layout. There is so much you can create.


Here I applied the peach adhesive pearls which really helps the focal point to stand out.



Here you can see the the cluster of flowers, ribbon, and beautiful butterfly.


I did some fussy cutting of flowers and applied a chipboard title. Then applied distress pumice stone ink to the title and other areas of the layout. The picture is my girlfriend's daughter when she was young. Those bright eyes really gives a great focal point.

Well that's it; a finished project!



Thanks for stopping by today and remember to get this kit and more products from the Frosted Design Store.
