SELF!! and new tutorial and design call

Just put another new tutorial up on my website - it demonstrates the pearl mist using perfect pearls powder - go check it out!

There is a designer of the week call every week over at Paper Patch Crafts (AND a new batch of Primas just in too!!!!). Want a chance to be in the SPOTLIGHT - hurry on over there and submit an entry - it is an easy design contest because you can submit anything you want - so get your creative juices going and head over to Paper Patch Crafts. While you are there stop by the message board - a VERY friendly and creative place that i enjoy very much. Anne over there has great service, super shipping and some unique items (like binder rings i just ordered for some coaster albums for the two granmas....)

and now on to my next item - i LOVE the sketches over on Valerie's Got Sketch blog - here is the last one:

and here is my LO - Pezzy is really wanting to feed herself - it's a little scary as you can see from the pics!

Paper is pizzazzill, letters are cut with the alphalicious cricut cart. after being inspired by this post i rubbed them with Milled Lavendar distress ink, misted them with water and crumpled them up. then flattened them out and rubbed lightly with Dusty Concord distress ink to accentuate the wrinkles and then dry brushed perfect pearls powder over them in Forever Violet and Interference Violet. Side is stamped with tooled leather from starving artist stamps and then embossed with clear embossing powder. the two little stamps were colored with prismas and gamsol. there is a grungeboard hinge on the corner of the pic - colored with dusty concord. i highlighted it with heirloom gold perfect pearls after this pic was taken to make it stand out a bit.

i am adding new ranger products to the website so i hope you have a look!!
