Here is this week's journal page:
I am getting into my fall crafting groove, and got busy with a few projects this weekend.
I made these boxes to hold the key chains and some candy:
Silver Bullet cutter , and added color with Distress Inks. The background is Kraft Glassine that I crumpled and heated with my heat gun. The box file is also from SVG Cuts, from the One Piece Box kit.
Finally, I played with more embossing powder to alter this thrift store frame. I used the same paper leaves from the project above, this time with Recollections chunky embossing powder in antique silver. I was inspired by Wendy Vecchi (who just released a new set of Ranger embossing powders to match her Archival inks) to dig around in my embossing supplies to see what I had on hand. If I use some of what's in my stash, I can justify buying some new stuff, right? Right!
I am debating whether to add some color to this project. I think I will be able to decide once I put in the adorable vintage baby photo that I found in my "attic collection". This piece will be living in my vintage box installation, so it doesn't need to be too bright. I like having just a few pops of color amongst the authentic rustic grunge.
After such a productive weekend, I'm kind of sad to be going back to work on Monday. I really do like my job, but I LOVE time in my craft room!
Thanks for visiting with me today!
