Craft Hoarders Anonymous Blog Challenge 4

Challenge #4 Show Some Sparkle, Glitz, or Glam!

This one kind of threw me for a little while. I’m not usually any of those things. The inspiration from the design team helped get me on track. Gloria Stengel has put together an awesome team who always provide me with a ton of inspiration.

I decided I would make a chunky ATC.


This started out as a chunk of  regular old 2×4 my sweet (and patient) husband cut up for me. First thing I did was give the whole thing a good coat of Gesso.  After Gesso I glued down torn pieces from an old dictionary. Then the fun part began!


I used Silk Acrylics to cover the dictionary paper. Primary Elements to paint my handmade flower and the Prima wooden leaves. I die cut two Budding Branches using one of my favorite dies from Die-Namites and colored those with Primary Elements too.

The blingy butterflies were found in my stash of blingy stuff and I have no idea where they came from but they suited this ATC.

I love these challenges and if you would like to play along, here is where to find all the fun and the rules too:

Thank you so much for stopping by to see my project and visiting my brand spanking new blog! Now I need to figure out why my pictures look so good until I put them here?
