Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge

Hi there!
Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow. This week we want you to make a vintage or shabby chic project ...with the theme...


Thrilled...because I came across the wonderful Dyan Reaveley (now a senior designer with Ranger) while watching videos from CHA...took my layering to whole different level for me! she is sooooo fast! but her style really appealed to me (especially her "ghosting technique").
Have been wanting to try something new - so jumped right in LOL. My local scrapbooking store had a few of the Dylusion Sprays (and I've ordered more online heeee heee heeee) here is my first attempt....

All of the background paper was done with the Dylusions Sprays. Worked with long sheet of white cardstock. After applying my sprays, then on one side stenciled over my dye colored cardstock using the Crafters Workshop stencil and a water mist to get that ghost look. Then on the opposite side of the cardstock, I stenciled using same stencil but with Memento Black ink. On one side of the card stock I then embossed with Paper Studio embossing folder (tossed out wrapper ages ago so don't remember the name of it), layered another round of Dylusions Spray. I then cut my cardstock,one for the background and the other one for the top layer with the sentiment.

Lost track of the layers of ink I did, but the cardstock layers you can see...layered light green onto darker green cardstock, matted the smaller clock onto light green cardstock. Layered sprockets cut using the Spellbinder set under the main image as well as smaller sprockets on top of image....added my buttons and pearls....This was really a LOT of fun! If you have the time, watch one of her videos on You Tube...wish I could create that quickly!!! you can click here to see one of them...enjoy!

I am going to do one of these journals so you will see my pages from time to time as I use mine on my cards....something new for 2013!

hugs and blessings,

How fun, love trying a new technique and what a grand job you did with it! These colors are gorgeous, I can't wait to see the new ones you ordered. I love watches and think that I have that same folder. Love the touches of pearls on the gears. I will try and look at one of her videos ( so many fun things out there on the internet) and would love to try those sprays.
Hope you are keeping safe, we had light snow and sleet yesterday but hoping for a quick warm up.
