Frugal Scrapper Extraordinaire:)

For those of you who have been following my blog, THANK YOU, I'm still here and as FRUGAL as ever. I'm just expanding my blog title to further reflect my "altered" muse. I'm still the same (sometimes goofy) FRUGAL SCRAPPER that I've always been and will continue to focus on FRUGAL papercrafting projects:)

Studio L3 and CCC #15

Can I just start by saying....WHOO HOO!  I just LOVED the challenge this week over at Studio L3.  We turned to page 53 in T!m's Compendium of Curiosities book and WOW, there are some AWESOME projects submitted FULL of all kinds of CRE8IVE GOODNESS!

I had a BLAST makin' my "MONSTER MASH" ATC card...of course, I used some of my "frugal scrappin'" tips while I completed the challenge...see that METALLIC strip across the bottom?  Well 1 soda can got RECYCLED, frugal scrappin' STYLE:)

Used on my Martha Stewart border punches and covered it with EGGPLANT ALCOHOL INK...then I took my handy dandy TH TONIC SCRATCHER and my TH SANDING BLOCK to it...LOVE the way it turned out!

Now, while I can't tell you exactly what the challenge was, I can tell you I used SUNSET, CITRUS, AND EGGPLANT Alcohol Inks on the background...and maybe...just maybe involved a silver paint dabber...but that's all I'm SAYIN'....turn to page 53 in T!m's COMPENDIUM OF CURIOSITIES book for more info:)


P.S.  I have an EXCITING announcement to make...stay tuned:)

Lori, FSE:)

Oh, this is AWESOME, Lori!!! Your little Monster Mash is one of the cutest Halloween pieces I've seen, ever! I love those images! And, your background is utterly spectacular! I love the colors, and the sanding and scratching made it all the more distressed in the most perfect way! Great use of that soda can, too!

I'm so happy you're doing these challenges! Your art just rocks, and it's so much fun to visit your blog!
