The challenges were flowing fast and furious during this weekend's online crops at the Fiskateers and Dare 2 Dream! And guess what Chickie's? The Fiskateers crop continues until Wednesday, January 27! Can we do it? Yes, we can! Well, maybe. I have to find my craft table first! Cleaning chores are my first priority when I finish this post. Then I'm going to put together a layout for a Fiskateers challenge--create a layout with the consecutive letters, CHA, in the title. Maybe I will share that one tomorrow!
Today's layout is from one of Saturday's Fiskateer Challenges, Embellish your Embellishments. The required item was embellished chipboard. I chose to embellish my naked chipboard title (Best Occasions), Full Moon, by painting it with Perfect Pearls (Ranger). I thought I had an oops moment because I forgot to paint or paper the chipboard first--but, the Pearls covered just fine without taking the extra step.
All papers are from DCWV except for the silver portions of the triple mat which is Wausau Papers. I used the Fiskars Pearls of Wisdom corner squeeze punch on the mat. The silver ribbon is from ki Memories and I picked up the gem clip stars at Office Depot. A bit of adhesive and some dark blue embroidery floss and I was done.
The photo was taken in December, 2008 while vacationing in Aruba. There is a companion to this page but it is nothing special--just more moon photos and very basic journaling.
Thanks for dropping in. What did you do crafty this weekend? I love hearing from you so leave a comment and let me know!
