Framed! Part Deux
Here's some more frames from this weekend's Ranger U Group. First in this line-up is Carol Clements who owns the stamp company Stampattack in the UK. She did an awesome job with Tim's Wrinkle Free Distress, using brighter Distress Ink(tm) colors such as Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick, Shabby Shutters and I think I even see some Fade Jeans! She then stamped over with images "inked" with Pitch Black Adirondack(r) Acrylic Paint Dabber. She glued them onto the Bazzill Chips and then onto the frame which was also painted with the dabbers. I love it!
Next is Pat Miller, who also, with her husband, owns Rubbernecker and will be training her son and husband on how to even more effectively demo with Ranger products when they go to the shows without her...she's a school principal! Way to go, Pat! She created a fun montage of images incorporating many of the techniques learned, including Shabby Chic, use of Adirondack(r) Dimensional Pearls(tm)...if you look carefully, the top right hand corner? That's the actual Cut n' Dry Foam square she used for one of the techniques. We all said how cool the colors looked, she included it on her frame!
Here is another Miller's, but Eileen, not Pat! Eileen is from Ireland and I've known for quite a few years from my trips to the UK and doing education for the company that she reps for in Ireland, Personal Impressions. She's quite a wonderful decorative painter. She did a great job using the Distress Inks on the raw wood background and then did some dry brushing with the Distress Crackle Paint. You'll notice the coppery flourish in the upper-left hand corner? Grungeboard(tm)....mmmmmmmmm! Oh, yeah...they got to play with some, but sorry, it's not available until mid/end November! Eileen was also such a sport. With her rich Irish brogue, Tim wanted her to say, "It's magically delicious!" I, being the devil incarnate at times, wrote a note to Eileen and asked if she'd whisper that in his ear. She did and they both blushed. Needless to say, when she saw the "magical" embellishment, it HAD to be part of her frame!
Well, I'm going to take a shot at attacking my work area. It's quite the disaster. The final episode of Damages is on tonight...can't wait!
