Make it Monday and a Girl Scout Camping Trip

Hi all. I blogged about the cub scout camping trip, I should talk about the girl scout camping trip I went on last weekend. We stayed in a lodge at the girl scout camp and the lodge was very nice. It had electricity and a kitchen so we could cook indoors. Best of all we had light at night. I don't like being in the dark . But since the camp has to be cleaned spic and span before we check out, it is a lot of work.

On to Make it Mondays. Lisa Vollrath's challenge this week was to use windows or doors. I made this ATC for the challenge.

ISCC13-Make ATCs featuring resist techniques

This week's ISC challenge was to make 2-4 ATCs using at least 2 different resist techniques. For my first technique I used Krylon metallic pens as a resist. I doodled over the ATC with the metallic ink, then sprayed over them with color wash sprays. The ink resists the water color.

For my 2nd resist technique I used embossing powder for the resist. I painted the ATC with acrylic paint then stamped a background image with embossing ink and embossed with clear powder. Then I added a lighter color of paint over the image. Once it was dry, I ironed off the embossing powder, allowing the first color of paint to show through. Some of the sheets that I used for this project are Elegant Artsy Swirls, Nature Silhouettes I, Majestic Women VI and Summer Elements III.

This week for the ISC challenge we were to make a card using a sketch challenge. The sketch can be seen here I used stardream paper on the cardstock sections and patterned paper from Hot of the Press.

Make it Mondays after a weekend campout

Here I am again with a post for Make it Mondays. The theme is orange and I made a little necklace book from Lisa's Monthly Muse September newsletter. My daughter saw me reading the instructions for these little treasures and wanted me to make one for here. I agreed, but said I had to rest up first after a family camp out with the cub scouts which my son has just joined. There was a lot of work for an overnight stay! But I did get her little book made and here it is.

Make it Mondays

This is my first time to participate in Lisa Volrath's Make it Mondays challenge. Every Monday she posts a theme and you can make anything with that theme--ATC, card, whatever you want. I made an ATC here for the Alice in Wonderland theme. The themes never expire so you can join in at any time.
