WOW week with San

Hey all

San here....... this is my week with WOW. 
I am keeping it simple, just going to share an OTP I made to start with and then during the week a few layouts using WOW.

The OTP is a recycle project. I just love the challenge when someone gives me an odd object and says"make this into something"... This challenge is the packaging of the new Prima wooden camera pack. It is a small open box with 9 small square dividers in it and is 13cmx13cm in size.....I have added heaps of bits to it, it will hang in my scraproom on the wall.

It is covered with 7gypsy tissue paper, inks and mists and then I have added some of my favourite pieces of WOW.

The lamp post is  coloured with black sharpie and the lights are then shades with chalk inks


One of my favourite New Releases is the wire with with butterflies on it, this is the small version. I have just used vintage ink and chalk ink on the butterflies to colour them.

...then I have added some random pieces of WOW....there is a small mdf camera.

Also a domino and some of the cute random hearts. 

I then added some random acrylic butterflies from WOW.

.....I do love me some metal, so I added some Tim Holtz goodness to the project.

Simply done and yet I am thinking rather cute with some inspirational words shall be off to the scraproom immediately. lol

Dont forget the awesome WIN SOME WOW CHALLENGE ON THIS MONTH....
scroll down and check it out, might be the lucky one to get a great pack of WOW to play with

Have yourselves an awesome Easter break, be safe and eat lots of chocolates, take lots of photos....
......and dont forget WOW have a fabulous array of easter chipboard. Get into your lss and ask them to get some for you.

See you through the week

Anita's Week - 'Nothing But Class'...

Anita's Week - 'Nothing But Class'...
This is my last share for this week & I think I'm shamefully exposing my wild side!
LOL - everytime I see this photo it's makes me smile! It was taken at my sister hen's party 2 years ago. What a night!!! I think the title 'Nothing But Class' pretty much sums it up. I love having journalling on layouts & it tells the behind the scene the photo can't. It also allows that story to be shared & remebered with others. I've taken a sheet of plain old white cardstock & transformed into a fun & vibrant page using only a few bits & pieces.

The WOW products I used to create this page were:
6x6 Chevron Narrow ALTA023
MP3 player from the Electronic Games Pack WOW893

I used watercolour paint with the chevron altamatz & then traced around with a black pen.
It doesn't need to be super neat, as it gives it more character when it's a
'bit how's your mother'...
With the MP3 Player, I used Copic Markers to colour it in. I have found for paint splatter - watercolours works best :) I have also used washi tape, pearl bling (coloured with Copics too), camera flair button, newsprint chipboard alphas & vinyl letters.

Thanks for letting me share some of my special memories with you this week.
hugs Neet...

Anita's Week -'Treasured Memories'

Anita's Week -'Treasured Memories'
Hi bloggers! I'm back again (don't groan LOL). Hope you enjoyed yesterdays technique video - I'm a terrible translator in explaining how I do things! My brain just kicks in & goes, so when it has to stop & explain, it's like I have a steaker running across my train of thought LOL!!!
This layout I hold pretty close to my heart at the moment, as my grandfather has been quite ill & it is just a waiting game at the moment. So in tribute to my love for both my Nan & Pop, & the some 50 years they have been married for, I created this layout.
I used the title 'Treasured Memories' WOW708 from 'Words Or Whatever'.
I first used Tim Holtz - Vintage Photo distress ink & a sponge to colour the chipboard. You may need to repeat a couple of time, to achieve the depth of colour you want. I then used Glossy Accents, to add an epoxy shine to my title. Remember to always apply this with your chipboard on a completely flat surface!!! Otherwise if you have any sloping, all your gel will run to one side & not set even.
I prefer Glossy Accents to Diamential Magic, as it dries quicker & a but easier to apply :) It will take a couple of hours to dry (depending on where you live).
Here's a close up of the layout...
I'll be back tomorrow for my last post this week for my WOW week.
hugs Neet :)

Anita's Week - More Techniques

Anita's Week - More Techniques
Hi blogsters! Hope your enjoying all the love I'm sharing & that your brain feels like it's going to pop with ideas :) Today I've got another little technique video to share with you, with your AltaMatz! So grab a cuppa & thanks for watching

I find after using gel medium, gesso, impasto etc on my Altamatz - a good wash with an old toothbrush (or your hubby's if he driving you nuts baaahaaaa!!!) gets all the paste out from all the nooks & crankies :)

I've got 2 more days left in my take-over & so be sure to come back to check out the my next couple of posts

hugs, Neet...

Anita's Week - 'UP UP & AWAY'

So here's layout no.3 for my week, as I take over the WOW blog...
I am absolutely in love with this layout! It has a quirky & fun feel to it. My little man looks so damn cute sitting in that little Wiggles plane :) Such a poser LOL! I love how the plane appears to be flying across the page & the clouds are suspended by string.
I love how versatile chipboard is & what you can achieve with it.
The WOW products I've used for this layout out are:
Plane WOW333
Small banner borders WOW878
I've used copic markers to colour in the little plane & the banners. I then took some teal smooch & added a speed strip up the side of the plane. Then with my trusty black pen, I added outlines to emphasise the details of the plane & the create a border on the banners.
Other bits I've used are:
Fancy Pants paper
Flutterby Designs (me) photo cutouts & page tabs
Kaisercraft mini alphas
Kaisercraft Miss Match polaroid
washi tape
bakers twine
flair badge
Pearl bling (coloured with copics)
Handmade shipping tag
Scrap cardstock
watercolour paint
Handmade shipping tag (made from wrapping paper)
Black pen for doodling
Here's a few close ups...
I'll be sharing another project tomorrow or maybe something a little different :)

Anita's Week - 'It's My Party'

Anita's Week - 'It's My Party'

Hope you enjoyed yesterday's video - always hard to follow on from Sue (who did a great job!!) If you missed her vids from the other week, here are the links :)
So here's another share from me... my 1yr olds 1st birthday party was a whole new learning curve I must say (he's not having another party until he's at school LOL). So with lack of sleep, the overwhelming amount of people & the sugar rush - most of the day looked like the pictures below...
I'm loving simplistic layouts atm!! It doesn't cost an arm & a leg to do a page. All you need is your WOW chippy, paper scraps, photo/s, black pen for doodling, paint, a couple of stamps & some other bibs & bobs (if you have them)...
For this layout I used: It's My Party chipboard title RWL362
To jazz up the title, I used acrylic paint, white & black pen.
I painted the 'It's My Party' with white acrylic paint, & then went round with a fine black pen. I painted the 3 balloons also & added some detail with a white gel pen.
Here's a close up of the chipboard title
 Be sure to come back tomorrow to see what I've got installed..

Anita's Week - More Altamatz Techniques

Anita's Week - More Altamatz Techniques

In my take-over of the WOW blog, I done a short video on how I use my altamatz. Following on from Sue's great videos, here is a different technique. I also show you how to use watercolour paints & Copic Markers to colour & snazzy up your chipboard pieces.

Be sure to come back tomorrow to see what I've put up :)

Anita's Week - for my Best Friend 'Five Years & Counting'

'Five Years & Counting'

So this is my week to dazzle & amaze you all (LOL) with my scrapbooking creations. How 'Stach-Tastic' was Tess' week!! Loved the washit tape idea (I'm a self confessed addict too!)
will definately be trying that one out...
I'm very much into layering & mixed media with my layouts. A big change from my previous scrapin' style, which was using LOTS of bling & flowers. It's like from one extreme to the next!
This layout features a photo of my wedding day, where I married my best friend. As new parents, we've quickly realised how much kids turn your world upside down! I did this layout to reflect on what we were then & who we are now. As a reminder of what we have been through in the past 5 yrs & what lies ahead for the next 50 yrs (or there abouts LOL).
 Products I used were: 6x6 Spiral Altamatz ALTA042
Classic Alphabet Uppercase WOW1384
& the Ampersand WOW112

I first took some gel medium, a palette knife (painting spatula) & the 6x6 Spiral AltaMATZ
& roughly smeared it through the template - making sure I got at least a little bit of medium in each segment to keep the image. Then carefully remove the AltaMATZ (make sure you give it a good wash before the medium dries!)
Once it had dried on my page, I then randomly splattered some black & teal Golden paint onto my page. The colours on this layout are fairly neutral, so I kept my chipboard fairly understated. I used Tim Holtz 'Vintage Photo' distress ink on both pieces. I used a white gel pen & went around the word 'FIVE'.
I then began layering my paper elements, washi tape, photo cut outs etc. I love doodling - so my black pen is a must in my tool bag. The Smash pen is great because it will draw on photos & other glossy surafces - Love it!!!

Here's a close up of the layout...
So, keep an eye out everyday this week for posts by me this week, as I take over the WOW blog BAHAHAHAHHA!!!! (*insert evil laugh* he he)
hugs Neet :)
