Catch the bug / Anything But a Card Monday... Stay clam and get your craft on

Monday May 18, 2015
 
 

Well this was a no brainer ABC.. I have been thinking about this for some time and today is the day.. I have a day planner that I keep track of all my design team cards to post.. If I didn't I would be pulling my hair out. It keeps me so on track. Well since I only use it for my blog I thought this was perfect place for the divider page.  I used the image Girlz - get your craft on ..  I took a piece of chip board and cut it down to my journal page size. (I should of used gesso on it but didn't .. next time I will) and I used different ranger paints all over it, and some sprays. I then dropped liquid pearls dots all over and let it dry.. Needless to say I did not care for it after it dried, so I watered down some white paint  and brushed it over the page.. the paint and sprays bled through and kind a gave a nice look. It needed some punch so I took black paint and the cap to a spritz bottle and dipped it in the black paint and did the circles all over. I added the washi tape at the top that gives the week days.. I cut apart the sentiment that goes with the image and added it. I colored the image with copics and adhered it down. I am pleased with the look, but I sure learned a few things in the process for the next one.  I did spritz the back side of the page so it looked more than just chip board.
