Our Own Celebrity

Sandy was asked to be a guest designer over at Practical Scrappers this week. They have a great challenge on their blog every week and this week's was to use acrylic paint on your project.
Sandy made this beautiful page for her guest designer spot:
Sandy created that gorgeous flower with a leaf cut on her Cricut from the A Child's Year cartridge that she altered in DS and then painted with the acrylic paints. She attached them each with pop dots to make the flower and added a Prima to the center. There are other Primas scattered about her page and she changed the color of them to match her page with more acrylic paint! Sandy truly is a practical scrapper, using her supplies so creatively. If you want to learn more about Sandy's layout and techniques please visit her blog.
I wanted to share with you a little project I did for the challenge too. I altered a cookie sheet with acrylic paint and some patterned paper. I made magnets for it by gluing a Prima flower and Prima leaf to a large brad and then adhered it to a craft magnet. I altered the little Chatterbox wood frames with some acrylic paint to match and plan on putting some photos of my girls inside them. The little silver containers are magnetic backed tins that come with the Prima Mini Cans and are great for holding all sorts of embellies. The complete details of this project can be found on my blog.
