Connie - July 30th Post

Here is my first solo post for Frosted Designs.  

Here is my Heritage page. 
Did I mention I also love layers? Well I do and here is an example.  I used the 7 Dots Illumination Kit. It was very fitting for this salvaged photo. This is my Father's Family. They were having a family picnic and my Dad is the one taking the picture.  

Here is a close up of the banner created with the paper collection.

Here is a close up of the mask and molding paste and some mist work.

Close up of the flower cluster. The flowers are from the July Kit and Kaisercraft blooms.

Close up of Title and more mask and paste work.

Thanks for looking and have a Scrappy Day!

Ann Butler Designs and Cool 2 Cast Designer Blog hop

Welcome to Ann Butler Designs and Cool2Cast Designer blog hop. You should be arriving here from Carmen's Blog.

For the Hop I created a Canvas.

I used a 12 x 12 Picture Canvas I painted it with Gesso
I added paper doilies,paper cupcake wrappers, paper pieces and lace.
I glued down some gauze and used some stencils and Texture magic.
I white washed the canvas with another coat of gesso.
While it was drying I prepared my Cool2Cast pieces. The purple flowers are inked with Lilac Colorbox crafters ink.  The leaves are inked with Limelight crafters ink. The pink and the Blue flowers are painted with Ann Butler Iridescent paints in Aquamarine and Lipgloss.
Once the piece was dry I used the EZ D's 1'Rail Fence Stamp set with limelight ink.
I also added a little water to aquamarine and splattered the ink on the canvas.
I placed the picture of my Daughter's on a chevon paper and layered it on the canvas.
I placed the flower cluster on the 2 corners.

Red Carpet Studio " Grown Ups"

Now showing at Red Carpet Studio. "Grown Ups" The challenge is to create a project that features "A Kid At Heart " Theme.

I chose a pic from Magic Kingdom. We took the kids to Mickey's not so Scary Halloween Party. They dressed up and trick or treated around the park. I was also able to get several non edible prizes from the customer service area for Karrah.  The hosts would give her the items I handed to them for her.

I have been experimenting with my masks, mists and molding paste.  I used my New Lindy's Stamp Gang colors on the  page. I left my mask on with the molding paste then sprayed before I moved the mask. I love the effect and will be using it again. I also added Ann Butler Designs faux quilt stamp images to the stars.

Thanks for looking and I can't wait to see what you create.
