Jaxson Ellis Layout by Ginger

I did this for the design team at The Crafty Scrapper.  I was given these papers by Authentique.

I used the back side and it worked very well with the photo.  This little cutie is my new grandson.  He was just 5 days old!

 He melts my heart.  I now have 3 grandsons and two granddaughters and each is so special!

I used several stencils, modeling paste, and die cuts.  

You can find this at The Crafty Scrapper and on the back you will find a list of items that I used.

Thank you for looking and have a wonderful day!

Hugs – Ginger

Altered Egg with Angela

Out of the Past and  Still Moving Forward…..
This was a fun and unique challenge!  I was given an egg and access to some Tim goodies. I thought oh yeah this is going to be fun!  I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to go in a “TRADITIONAL” direction of Easter….because my mind is so far from “traditional” when it comes to much of anything.  I knew I wanted the egg to be open and thought of chicks, bunnies and eggs in the egg..but as you see that is not what happened here.
It’s been a year since I went my own way and this was kind of representative of that and each item in this piece is symbolic in some way of that “new beginning”.  So this was a very deep piece for me.  It represents the freedom to do my own thing, in my own time and my own way, freedom to fly, freedom to leave the past behind, while holding on to my roots and still turning some things on their side and leaving them behind too.
My husband said it looked like something from the Adam’s Family, but this was a very personal piece so it’s ok if you enjoy the visual and don’t get the symbolism…after all that’s what art is all about, right?

Altered Easter Egg with Ginger

Hello friends!  All the design team were given a golden egg to decorate.  So I decided to turn the golden egg white and then added all the beautiful flowers to it.

I used a spool for the base which I added ribbon.  The egg I used Gesso and then embossing powder.  I added pearls to it as well.  Then I started adding lots of flowers and then used a die cut for the leaves.  I punched out the small butterflies and added glitter.

Please see the close-ups!

Thank you for taking a peek for this was a pleasure to create!

Hugs – Ginger

Authentique Egg Hunt with Erica

Hello! It’s Erica, and this month I am sharing an Easter shadowbox I made using Authentique’s Eastertime collection.

I used recycled chipboard to create the box and then covered it with the beautiful paper from this collection.

I fussy cut images from the paper and layered them to create the scene. Everyone looks ready for spring and for the annual Easter egg hunt.

On top, I layered paper flowers that I made using Tim Holtz’s Tiny Tattered Florals dies. The larger leaves are from a Prima die. I covered them all in Stickles and Wink of Stella for sparkle. Vintage trim and a hand-dyed seam binding bow add softness.

Easter is still more than a month away, so you have plenty of time to craft up some goodies!
