A Little Donna

More projects I created for the CHA Summer 2010 Trade Show at the end of the month using Donna Salazar's new releases!!

I made the title “Believe” using Donna's Artistic Papers with the new word and letters on them. I colored the letters with a couple different green shades of Copic. Then I dripped Colorless Blender on the letters to make them bleed. And then I inked it like CRAZY! And crumpled it while it was wet with the Blender Solution. I'll show how to make the craxy flourishes with Donna's Crafty Chronicle in a later post :) And I sprayed white roses with Smooch Spritz to make them a nice, deep, Christmas green.

“Christmas Ornaments”

For this page I used a lot of machine stitching. I wanted it to look worn and vintagey so the strings would be hanging out all over the place. To get this look, just play with the tension on your top thread and the bobbin until loops start to form when stitching. I used the Crafty Chronicle to make flowers I diecut with a Sizzix die. Then I spritzed the entire page with Smooch Spritz in Vanilla Shimmer.

This is my favorite layout for Donna so far, probably because it is really simple :) I'll be showing this spray paint effect using Smooch Spritz to you all soon. Maybe on here, maybe in a class.

That's all for today. Tomorrow I'll be starting an Etsy Christmas in July Blog Hop with my fellow etsy friends so please be sure to check back and get in on the fun. There are prizes!

Happy Scrapping!
