Dreamer --- Frosted Designs

Here is my post that is over at the Frosted Designs Blog today!!

Greetings from sunny Arizona...where it still feels like mid-summer....seriously!!!
I'm so thankful for Air Conditioning although my wallet isn't so happy about the size of our electric bill this time of year...LOL!!  So what's a better excuse than the heat to stay indoors and scrap til I'm silly?!!!

Sometimes I like to get a little grungy with my is one where I was just playing and had no real plan for my layout and what came together makes me smile!

I started with some corrugated cardboard, ripped some holes into it and backed those with patterned paper.
I stitched around the border and my photo to keep that all attached to the cardstock base.

I added Ink Spray - green spritzed through a 12x12 stencil and then I mixed the same green with beaded glass gel medium to get that dark texture effect in the ripped areas.
I also spritzed some of the white in a few spots.

I added some additional texture using molding paste and a stencil.  And I LOVED adding the larger UmWow Chipboard arrows to this project.

So don't forget that you can use your mists/sprays for more than just spritzing on your pages.  I loved the effect I got by mixing mine with a different textured medium.
And I gotta tell you...these Ranger Dylusions sprays are gorgeous!!

Some projects for challenges....

Challenges I've been playing along with...
Posting here so I can link to those challenges...

First a couple for My Scraps and More - Sketch Blog

Sketch #45

The background is modeling paste mixed with paint through a mask for the bricks.
Then the "gross gum" is melted crayons...some just dripped by themselves and some dripped over a pile of modeling paste to simulate the "gum"....  GROSS!!  But...a memory, so I guess it's scrap worthy!

and..Sketch #46

And for Sketch n Scrap, I did this card sketch:
