Something Wicked - Mini Album

4
Something Wicked is Marion's latest Mini Album Printable themed around Halloween.  You can order the download here.   Although this mini has a gothic feel to it, many of the designs could be used with her other printables.  

 
I created this little mini in just a few hours.  My daughter wants to use it to display her Halloween costumes from the past, and incorporate some of her future costumes for years to come.  She has always loved Halloween, and playing dressup, so it should make for an interesting book when it is filled.

In addition to Marion's downloads, I was able to incorporate a lot of dies, and vintage Prima tube flowers, with scraps of lace, and fibers.

When making the album, I cut some tickets from the scraps to make extra journal spots - so save those scraps!


Here is a video showing each page in detail. 



Did you download this mini?  If so please share your version with us on the Artsy Addicts Facebook Page. 

Thanks for stopping in today,

Friday Night Lights

0
For those who know me - my passion is FOOTBALL. Seriously I even volunteer so that I can stand on the sidelines with my toes in the grass. In my community - I'm known as Psychomom. They dubbed me this years ago. Every child I've ever photographed will tell you the name is well earned. They know if they are playing, I'm on the sidelines for them!  I pace the field with lens in hand, and hold my breath for that perfect SHOT!  I rush home, spend an hour cropping and posting so the kids/parents can see the photos.   It started when my son played his first game as a Pop Warner Mitey-Mite at 7 - he is now 16 and this is his first year at Varsity. 

A few weeks ago,  thanks to a friend who works for a local newspaper, I had a sideline bird's eye view for his first varsity football interception. 

 
That game he had 2 interceptions in the pouring rain.  So I decided to make an 8x10 collage print to hang on his wall.  As you can see I have every single step from before he caught the ball, until he jumped up!  Prints like this are great for sharing a number of pictures with loved ones.  I love making these because at a glance you get the entire story.




This year has been a little different because his stats are not just small talk among family, they are now posted in various newspapers around the state, and broadcast on local news stations.  I'm trying to collect up the stats from the newspapers and Internet highlights to make him a book . I'm so proud of him for giving everything on the field.  He has worked so hard, and it is so rewarding to see him put everything into his passions.  He may not be the largest one on the field, but he plays like he is 10ft tall and bullet proof. 

Thanks for stopping in today,

Tonya Gibbs

All Boy!

0
My nephew Cooper, at 4 years old, was wanting to go hunting with the big boys.  So Brighton, my Son, dressed him in Camo (way too big for him), painted his face, and gave him a BB Gun (with no amo).  He was so stink'n adorable, I had to take pictures of him.


Prima's Sept. BAP contest seemed like the perfect opportunity to scrap this photo.   Here is the final layout that I created.


 
I started with the Prima Script paper as my base, added some molding paste with a Prima Printery mask, then went to town spritzing with copper and bronze shimmering sprays.  I pounced some forest green shimmers in a diagonal across the page to give a hint of green, then finished off with Wheat Fields Glimmer mist.  All these colors remind me of my camo boys in the middle of fall.
 
The Prima Shabby Chic Deer resin was the perfect accent for this layout.  I framed Cooper's picture with corrugated cardboard, a Prima vine, and  Prima large leaves that I cut into palm frown shapes.  I finished off the title with a Nature's Garden Chipboard piece.  
 
Under his picture I tucked in a toy compass that came from a toy machine that Cooper and I had gotten after dinner one night.  I love the addition of one of his toys in the layout. 
 
Here is a look at the Sept. BAP Sketch, designed by Hege Lundquist that was required for the layout design.   For more information on Prima's BAP (Build A Page) Monthly Contests, please visit Prima's blog.
 
 
 
I love how masculine this layout turned out with all Prima products. Prima makes girl layouts a cinch, but I really had to dig into my creative side to achieve this masculine look. I really enjoyed the challenge.
 
Did you participate in the Sept. BAP Challenge?  If so, I would love to see your layout, please tag me in the photo on the Artsy Addicts Facebook page.
