I AM PassionART...

I am passionate about ART.  Always have been.  Before I found scrapbooking, I was writing music, playing guitar, painting canvas, creating wall art, baking and packaging presents, crafting with wood, sewing, etc... I even made my own PROM dress!  I was terrible on hemming, and it just kept getting shorter and shorter.  OOPS!  My Mother is directly responsible for my craftiness, she was always visiting White Rose and taking me along, inspiring me to create art at a young age.

I created this layout for a contest Beauty Pagent at Scrap-Tastic.com.  The challenge was to use fabric on your layout and the topic was to be themed "what you are passionate about".  I hope it comes across that I am passionate about all things ARTSY.  I do have a picture on there, it's a recent layout close-up that I muted in colour so that it would match my layout.

I love challenges that allow me to use up old stash and just go crazy with embellishments.  I used up some old rub-ons and letters, used some stamps and my glossy accents to make the scissors glossy.  I also added a recent ATC card that I made for a swap.

I hope you can see the fabric above for the pennants, it was white fabric, sprayed with several colours of Glimmer Mist and then stamped with CHF's Vintage Text stamp.  The numbers are PRIMA chipboard.

I picked up these new reinforcers by 7 Gypsies, which I added to the tag - it has a sticky backing, so very easy to apply.  I used the Maya Road SEW CUTE MINI CHIPBOARD SET that I picked up from Scrapbook Star (spool, sewing machine, scissors).  I coloured the chipboard pieces with COPIC markers, then applied Glossy Accents.

Here you can see the glossy scissors, and some beautiful PRIMA trim, Queen & Co. pearls, Evalicious felt/left embellishment, Melissa Frances keyhole, Prima flower and leaves, and a UNITY paper pad journal stamp.

Happy Monday!
