Enchanting: CE daily

Hi fellow scrappers..
I'm here today to share a layout I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments and the layout is of my daughter using some of the fantasy themed chipboard elements from the Creative Embellishment store and using Faber Castell Gelatos..

I found this stack of papers at my local craft store and absolutely fell in love with the blues and green tones, so used my Faber Castell Gelatos to color the chippies to match my color scheme..  Gelatos are so super easy to use, you can just rub them onto your chippies using your fingers :)

I used some of the berries and tucked them behind my photo mat and flowers..
added a few drops of liquid pearl in light blue to add some detail.

I adore these cute tiny fairies and have this one holding a little love tag which I fussy cut from the paper collection..  I also used the gelato's to color the title to my layout, Enchanting. Adding some of blues and greens to match the layout..

thank you for stopping by today and checking out my layout.
till next time

Here are the chippies I used for my layout:

It's Our Time-altered art-CE daily

Hi fellow scrappers..
I'm  here to share an altered clock I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments using an cheap alarm clock I had purchased from IKEA several months ago, with the intention of altering it at some point..
Here is my project:
I used Gesso to first cover the clock, then used several shades of acrylic paint to create the patina look..
how about a few close ups:
side view, where you can see all of the layers I created using some of the CE chippies.
I also covered the front with some of the flowers I had in my stash.

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my altered art project..
till next time

Here are the chippies I used to create my project:

Now for my project! 
I have been wanting a small pin board for the longest time..just something small enough to pin notes that show case things coming up, due dates etc..   I finally found some Adhesive cork sheets at a local craft store here in Finland and they were perfect for the 8x11 frame I had purchased a few weeks earlier..  Now, I added a little touch of mixed media, flowers and some chipboard elements and I have myself a pretty cool looking pin board.
This is sitting on my desk  and I can't wait to use it.. Need to go buy some push pins first..LOL
How about a few close ups and some details:
I absolutely love these wood veneer scrabble letters, the set comes with so many that I have lots of other projects in mind that I'll be using the rest on..

I used the Oh Say Can You Sea Shimmerz Paint spray ink on my white flowers, my cheese cloth and on my frame, which I had added some texture to with stencils and texture paste.. I decorated my frame using some of the gear embellishments (Gear Corner set) from the Creative Embellishments store.

We all get these little light bulb moments do we?..LOL  I thought this was a perfect embellishment for my pin board frame.. added a few cork butterflies, to match my background of course :) 
and there you have my mixed media pin board.. It's going to get a lot of use..

I loved the colors used in the photo, so I used that as the inspiration to my layout.
Here is my layout:
I used my favorite Bo Bunny papers and Creative Elements chipboard elements to create my layout

How about a few close ups and some details:
I love to use these rings for frames for smaller photos..

I clustered some of my flowers around the main frame, this leafy vine frame is sooo pretty.. I used some watercolors to paint my chipboard elements.

I also added some art stones by Prima Art Extravagance.. they are so much fun to use and add such a fun element to your page.

I found some purple flat back gems in my stash, so added some to the center of the snow flakes ..
