Snazzy Design Team Project #1 By Gillian ....

Good morning everyone, Gillian here with my first project of the week. Yet another month has sprung from nowhere and it is time for the Design Team to create with some more goodies. This month we will be featuring the Chalk Studio/MME - Enjoy Everyone Paper Kit along with these Kaisercraft Clear Stamps ... I'm working with Smile (CS130), Confidence (CS124) & Life (CS125).

The base of my project is using a Studio 490 Art Parts Fancy Oval Frames which I covered using the 12x12 Lettered Paper from the Paper Kit, adhering with Cosmic Shimmer Glue then sanding around the edges, this saves any cutting.

These papers have a beautiful white shading/chalk effect throughout the designs, so bearing this in mind I sponged Distress Paint (Picket Fence) around the edges to pull everything together. I then painted the Gears from the Art Parts Set Steampunk Gears & More using Distress Paint (Pitch Black), before stamping with Kaisercraft Clear Stamp - Arty, again using Distress Paint (Picket Fence).

I've sprayed the flowers {which were Gold/Bronze in colour prior to spraying} from the Prima Sunrise/Sunset Collection with Dylusions Black Marble & White Linen then thouroughly heat drying before adhering using Cosmic Shimmer Glue. I then added some Ideaology Light Bulbs and a Philosophy Tag.

Next using a left over rectangle Art Part shape, I painted this using Snowflake fresco Paint as I wanted  full coverage before stamping with Archival Ink (Jet Black). At this point I did not fully load the Kaisercraft Clear Stamp {Life} with ink as I didn't want a "crisp image" this would then match the whole overall effect of the project.

To tie in the top right hand side, I painted a Kaisercraft Wooden embellishment using Distress Paint (Pitch Black) then spritzed some Dylusions White Linen over the top before adding some more flowers as above.

So that's project #1 ..... I will be back on Thursday with my final project for Snazzy's. I have had the privilege of assisting Val & Don over the last few years in sharing the business that is Snazzy's with you all, setting up the Design Team blog and working with the best teamie's. As the old saying goes "all good things come to an end" .... with another year of studies ahead as well as working full time, something has to give. I would like to say a huge thanks to everyone at Snazzy's for letting me share the journey with you guys, and I wish you all the very best in the future. x

Without further ado the winner of last months Random Comment is ..... Helen (StampingByH)
