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:)

She who listens sees...

So....I've FINALLY had a chance to view some of the She Art videos for the on-line class I signed up for...well...almost 3 months ago, lol! Christy from Scarlet Lime teaches these classes.  Make sure you visit her site.  And prepare to be AMAZED!

AND....I have to SAY...I'm a HUGE fan!

Take a look at my first SHE ART creation...I'm AMAZED...and THRILLED...and HUMBLED...and all around, over the top in LOVE with this new venture in ALTERED ART...WAHOO!

I started out using a 6 x 8 canvas for my first attempt.  I also decided to use my current TNT kit from the TNT club at Ever After Scrapbooks.  Our monthly meeting is this Tuesday and I can't wait to share my new creation!

As I was creating, this piece "SPOKE" to me and the quote just came to me...

I just LOVE this color combination that was inspired by this month's TNT kit.  I was also thrilled to be able to use some of what my dear friend, Teresa gave me...pages from an old GERMAN...Thanks, Teresa!

I used some "found items" in this project...specifically:
  • bubble wrap
  • rubber shelf liner
  • paper filling from who knows where (see hair)
I also used the following from my TNT kit:
  • burgandy flower
  • letter stickers
  • two pieces of the patterned paper (one of which is mostly covered)
From my stash:
  • rub-ons
  • acrylic paint
  • filmstrip stamp (stamped on to flimsy packaging)
  • bling from Prima
  • Mod Podge
  • canvas from Blick Arts
  • Studio 490 stamp
  • sharpie (black)
