Frosted Designs DT announcement!


It's official!!     I am a new Design Team member for FROSTED DESIGNS!


  I am super excited and so very honored.  This is my first layout for the weekly challenges, "What Direction".

 Show easy as using arrows, or more challenging to use words or anything else that indicates direction.     Word ideas: East, South, Under, Over, Up, Down.

I took this picture of my daughter at the Royal Mews in London during our recent trip there.  Despite the fact that she is allergic to horses they have always been considered her friends.  No matter where she travels whether it be north, east, south or west she will always be able to find a four hooves friend.  

 I dove into my stash and found this 8x8 Graphic 45 Typography pad with only two sheets of paper remaining and bits and pieces from other sheets. After layering the the bits I used a 12x12 clock stencil and using texture paste I added partial clocks along the strips.  Then I came back and outlined the numbers.
The chipboard pieces were give a large dose of black embossing powder.  Finally I spritzed color all around and adding mica chips.  The black thread shows direction and movement. 

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have been inspired!
