Stampotique Designer's Challenge 31

Here is another project I finished yesterday. I was going to post it last night but my headache got the better of me so I decided to wait till today. The new challenge is up over at the Stampotique Designer’s Challenge blog and this week the theme is ACETATE. You have to use it in some way in your project.
Since I did a tag last week, this time I decided to make a scrapbook page using a piece of packaging for the background. I just cut off the sides and trimmed it to a 12X12 size. This is my first bit of Acetate in my project.

Above is the packaging I used as the base of the page.
Below I place and adhered my pictures as well as stamping in Stazon Black the Stampotique 3 girls image on my acetate.
Next I placed on my letters on the front side of the layout then I stamped in a line again with Stazon black using the feet of the Stampotique crafter stamp then I painted over it in white Dylusions. I also painted on the back of the stamped girls image using Dylusions white paint

While waiting for the paint to dry I added some more stamping using the hand and heart of the Stampotique crafter stamp. (I am limited in Stampotique stamps and try to stretch them where I can by using bits of the images and since this challenge calls for only Stampotique images I had to do that) Also on acetate you do not have to worry about masking because the bits you o not can be easily wiped off by rubbing a Promarker blending pen over the bit and wiping with a dry soft cloth. This is the before bit.
While leaving everything to dry I cut some bits of left over Acetate packaging(My second bit in the project) into some circles and ovals. I then coloured them with promarker(the leaves) and heated until crinkly. For the circles I heated them till they were wavy then I put them together with a brad and painted the center underneath with white and left to dry.

Lastly I cut and distressed my papers and added them to the back of the Acetate under the photos. I also added the tags and charms. the stars at the top are Eyelets and the white ribbon is threat through to create a wall hanging. I also edged the corners of the Acetate with Stazon to make them stand out a bit.

And here again is my completed page.

Now remember the tag I did a bit back using recycled materials for the Stampotique challenge 30? Here it is again.

Well it was picked as a Favourite in the challenge. I was so shocked to see it up there when I went to look at the newly posted challenge! Here is the original link to the post.

Now I am off back to my baking as I still have to make several cakes for the party in the Playground at the School tomorrow. It is a great event but I really(fingers crossed) hope it does not rain as it is outdoors. Hopefully it rained itself out today with all that rain.

Thanks for stopping in and have a great day. Angela

Your scrapbook page is absolutely adorable. I love how you used the 3 little girls stamps with your pictures and the packaging as your background. This would make a fabulous wall hanging as well.

Thanks so much for playing with us again at Stampotique Designer's Challenge and congrats on being chosen as a favorite!
