Inspiration board 202

29 July 2011
I am having so much fun at Colorcombosgalore. I just love working with the palette and the designer challenge. It really makes me think outside of the box and try out new things. Look at this yummy board! 
J'aime beaucoup travailler pour COLOR COMBOS GALORE. J'adore utiliser les combos et le challenge me fait sortir de ma zone de confort.  Voici celui de cette semaine!
AND this is what I made.
The designer challenge this week was wood grain. I could have used patterned paper but decided to try a wood-grain effect using gesso. I then layered my paper that I cut out as frames. To addsome dimension I stuck them on thick cardboard. I'm going to frame it and hang it up somewhere! I also made a tutorial for the wood-grain gesso effect, so hop over to colorcombosgalore and check it out.
Le challenge cette semaine c'était le bois. J'aurai pu prendre un papier imprimé avec un effet bois mais j'ai voulu essayer autre chose. Ici j'ai décidé utiliser le gesso et faire un effet bois. J'ai fait un pas-à-pas qui se trouve ici. Puis j'ai coupé mes papiers pour faire un cadre qui est collé en 3D. 

I also decided to make a card. The wood-grain here is made using an Craft concepts embossing folder. Love all the effects you can make with those folders! I finally got to use those spools from the Nook June kit. 
J'ai aussi fait une carte. J'ai enfin pu utiliser les bobines reçues dans mon kit de juin de chez the SCRAPBOOKNOOK!

I still have so much to show you. I'll probably be doing a post a day as I have a lot of catching up to do. Tomorrow I'll show you some sneak peeks of a project I've made for a crop. I used loads of AC products. You won't get to see the entire project as the crop is in October. Have a great day!
