Well scrappers...I'm at it again:) I had an epiphany when I received a wine shipment from a local winery in Temecula, CA...
Why not take the packaging that any "normal" person would discard, lol, and make another frugally made mini album:)
Pictured at left are the main "ingredients" and tools used for this album.
I call it "Glitzy and the Grunge" because it kind of reminded me of the classic "Lady and the Tramp"...you know they belong together, but at the same time, they are worlds apart:)
Well I LOVE the look of grunge board, but being the frugal scrapper I am, I rarely allow myself such luxuries...then low and behold, I see a "grungy" material right in front of me that is just longing to be used in one of my projects.
My grunge is the bottle packaging (if anyone knows what this is called, feel free to share it with me) AND the cardboard box that it came in. Whoo hoo for fancy packaging. I just LOVED the olive green and cream colored stripes:)
I have shown below an example of how I put the glitz and grunge together...I cut a piece of the bottle packaging and ran it through my big shot, using various leaf die cuts. I then inked the leaves with various ink pads in my stash. Then I glitzed it up with stickles glitter glue. I put a drop on a piece of paper, dipped my finger in it and "patted it" on the leaves. I also drew around the outside of the leaves with a gold leafing pen.
