A LONG overdue post!!! I took 3rd place in the "Scrap That Tune" contest!

Well, after 8 weeks of incredible competition of "Scrap That Tune" over at Scrappy Giraffe Kits, I took 3rd place! I was really happy, as the competition was really fierce!!! I learned so much participating in that great contest...the challenges were incredible! I made some really good friends, too!

Here are my Week 7 and Week 8 projects:

Week 7: Song: Poprocks and Coke
Mission: Alter a clipboard and use the title
Requirements: Cardstock and rubons (ampersand and circle) only
Bonus: Distressing (used a file to get to the white core of cardstock)

Features: Drew the Coke bottle freehanded, drew and cut out title letters by hand.
Also used paint, pen, marker, colored pencil, and ink. Inked and painted edges, doodled. Made faux ribbons out of cardstock.

Week 8: Song: Wind Beneath My Wings
Mission: Entitle layout using line of lyrics that is not the title
Scrappy Mission: letter stickers, hand stitching, hidden journaling, eyelets.
Bonus: Stamping and aluminum foil
Other: Paint, brads, chipboard, gems, buttons, ribbon
Other techniques: Heat embossing, doodling, hand journaling, and painting. The aluminum foil wings were made by stamping wings, using Versamark, embossing with clear embossing powder, rubbing with Perfect Pearls, and outlining with pen. Image was then cut out with scissors.
