Sizzix ScoreBoard Blog Hop & Creative Imagination Real wood Paper

These two items arrived in the same week and I had an AH HA moment.  It was a total moment of genius. ( I do not have these often)  My finished project actually looks very similar to what I had in my head.  If your creative process is anything like mine it starts out with an idea and a visual and ends up looking like something completely different.  Usually COMPLETELY different.  I started with this great little Rectangular Box by Eileen Hull.  Then I cut strips of the REAL WOOD Paper and inked it with Clearsnap Chalk Ink to give it an aged mossy effect.  The little flowers are from another Eileen Hull die.  I coated them with Smooch and Smooch Spritz for added sparkle.  I made wire stems and spiral centers using Toner Wire and accented them with  Sakura Hobby Craft 3-D gel.  I used Toner Jute too.

Thanks for stopping by and checking things out.  Be sure to leave a comment here and on Eileen’s Blog.  Comments on Eileen’s blog are entered into a drawing to win an actual die cut.  So happy hopping!

PS.  I still have a few spots in my class this weekend at Charleston Scrapbooking and at the Donna Downey Inspired event.
