3 Simmilar but different Headbands

Featuring Satin Roses, feathers, rhinestones, and Tinsel Ribbon I sat down last night and was sorting through some of my craft stuff. I had not opened my hair accessories box in some time.

So as I was watching the J K Rowling story I started to play and experiment.

So here is what I created:

A little bit of History Mini Albums Part 2

This next mini album was made at the start of 2010 and was a huge leap out of my comfort zone in terms of colour and style. I Believe I made this for the Kaiser DT call that year. I can certainly see how my photography has also improved a lot since then.

A Kaiser MDF Album with Kaiser Paper, and other assorted things and one of my all time most used set of stamps MSE Friendship quotes.

and last but not least a chipboard Mini Album I created last year after a break up. I am really proud of how this turned out even if it wasn’t the happiest of endings. Sometimes scrapping can be a form of therapy. There is a lot of pockets and such to add print outs of messages and such. Funny though I have yet to add them to the album. I may one day but then again maybe I wont shrugs.

Butteflies, Butterflies, Butterflies

Now I know butterflies are always on trend. For me they are also a sign of transformation. I have always been a lover of butterflies and as you know by now I truly love to create something a little different.

Recently I got my first brayer and honestly I have not really played with it much at all.

After a bit of experimenting with adding the ink to my embossing folders and them embossing cs honestly I was not that enchanted with the results.

So instead I embossed first then used my inked up brayer over the embossed images and loved how the butterflies turned out.

I also (and I know other people may well have before me) discovered that when using my giant tattered angels butterfly on one of my Cuttlebug Plates that if I add a smidge of thin express it tape at the corners, ink up the butterfly, place your card stock (CS) over the image an press down to attach to the corners of the plate, then use a clean brayer over the top of the stamp. You get a perfect image every time! This makes me happy for a number of reasons but most importantly no more wasted butterflies or cardstock.

So you may be wondering why I am talking about butterflies we ell this week I made a Headband resplendent with butterflies both the large Tattered Angels stamp and the Cuttlebug cut and emboss butterflies. A little wire, a few feathers (well the very fluffy end bits) some paper roses, some hand coloured tulle (coloured the same way as I did for the 12 tags of Christmas), and some Bling.

Here are the results both on my head and taken of just the butterfly spray.

I used triple thick in a thin layer over both sides of the butterflies it had the added benefit of strengthening the colours of the ink and I am hoping offering a little protection from the elements. The headband is a very thin silver metal one hence why you really cant see it in the pics.
