Hello friends and welcome! At JUST US GIRLS, Ina is your hostess this time around for Color Week! She's picked TEAL, PURPLE, and GOLD as your go to colors. Here's what I made:
here is the inside:
I'm using some new craft goodies I recently purchased: that beautiful frame die and Magenta Nuance dye powders. I cut a square of mixed media paper with vellum, brushed it with water, sprinkled a bit of the purple and turquoise powders, then spritzed it with more water and watched the magic happen! I dried it with my heat gun when I liked the pattern, then repeated the process one more time. The die was cut from bristol paper, then I painted over it with gold acrylic paint. Because I'm crazy like that. And besides, it looks really cool! (IMHO)
Love this new die, it debosses as it cuts! So pretty!
I hope you get some time this week to play along at Just Us Girls! We'd love to see what you make with these colors! For more inspiration, please visit the blogs of the design team and our Guest Designer, Cecile, and leave them some bloggy love.
Remember, that if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our November challenges, you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of January! Good luck and happy crafting!
