Creative Prompts 4 U Feature!!

Guess who was a guest at the Creative Prompts 4 U blog??

Yes.... it was me and I am thrilled about it. Have you checked out the blog yet? It is a wonderful challenge based blog. I was asked to post a challenge and a sample. Here is my challenge:

"My challenge is for you is to take an embellishment and enhance it to make a new one of a kind addition to your page. You can do this by many means... painting, misting, adding glitter... the sky's the limit!"

Here is the page I created:


For this layout I chose to alter a Prima flower by spraying with Glimmer Mist and adding some subtle glitter. I had a metal tag from Tim Holtz that I covered in green paint and wiped off the excess leaving the green paint in the crevice of the word. What can you do to alter an embellishment and create a new look?

Here are a few close ups...
