I did share some short videos on my facebook pages , now I am going to be selling them. I always have a hard time letting go of my projects, Idk why I get so attached! But I really do have to sell my creations. I have bad health issues that prevent me from working.

"Part II of my Wedding Ensemble" DT Project for Shabby Is Chic Boutique

Hi again! I'm here to share my most current project that I made for the facebook shop Shabby Is Chic Boutique, which will be making a change to Zibbet! As soon as that link becomes available I will update this post and share that store link with you! 
For now I would like to share Part II of the Wedding Ensemble  , I had started Part I in July, I did a few projects in between that time. If you would like to see the 1st part, you can click on the link above to view that. So here it is, Part II! xoxo

I took the bamboo handheld fan, painted it, applied crackle paint , then another light coat of white paint, it made it look a little more worn out look.

I let it dry overnight, the next day I began by gluing on front and back , a beautiful, wide trim from my stash, I then glued along the bottom part of the fan, the beautiful ivory collar with dangles and Pearl centers from the shop. Above that trim, I glued some of the Ivory flat back Pearl trim . On the top part of the fan I adhered some vintage looking Pearl/rhinestone bling trim from my stash. I turned it over to the back and glued the same vintage trim I first used on the front, then just added some beautiful Ivory braided trim for a clean, neat look. Lastly I added the beautiful fabric flowers and one of the heart bling pieces  from Shabby Is Chic Boutique

 I then began altering the journal by painting the edges with white along the edges, painted 1/2 in. Border around the journal. Let that dry then measured and cut the pattern paper. I I used the same paper, The Archivist from Prima , that I had used on the easel card I had previously made to match this set. I used all the same trims on this journal as I did on the fan. On the back I only adhered some of the Prima paper. Then just added , the Ivory fabric flower and bling piece to the journal. I lastly added some of the canvas , script writing trim that is sold at the shop as well. 

I hope that you will make a purchase of those beautiful bamboo fans and all of the beautiful products that are sold over at Shabby Is Chic Boutique . 
Thanks for taking time to check out my blog post and I hope to see what you all do with your altered bamboo fans! Xoxo
See you soon! 

FrankGarcia/Prima Marketing Mini Album Summer Series 2016 (May-August) Part II

Welcome to Part II of my Mini Album Summer Series, the following will be for the month of July/August. I'll get right to it, if you would like more info on these mini albums, you can take a look at the previous blog post where you can also find a link to purchase these albums. Hope you enjoy!!

                                               July Mini Album

In this mini album, it came once again with Frank Garcia's newest collections "French Riviera" , its beautifully beach themed with of course a little of vintage. Just like Frank is known for his collections! I also used some of tags, ephemera, etc from the Prima collection " Seashore" . Although these colors are not something I would usually use, but I really did enjoy making this!! xoxo

August mini album

This final mini is actually one of my favorites, its hard to say that only because I love all of them, but this one I was really anxious to finish it asap. I was never one for the color Pink, I would use it here and there but this one was fun to make. It came with some Prima Fairly Belle & Princess papers, beautiful flowers, I used some tags of both sizes on my album, along with embellishments from my stash. Of course beautiful laces from my stash and from Shabby Is Chic Boutique.

I hope that you enjoyed my mini album series. I really got so much inspiration from Franks original creations but thought I would make it my own. See you in my next posting! xoxo
