Baby Boy Lunch Bag Mini Album

This weekend was rather productive.  Not only did I get a challenge done, I also created a Lunch Bag Mini Album for a co-worker.  His wife is also a scrapbooker, so I thought she may appreciate it.  I am totally in love with making these mini albums now.
I even ventured out this weekend and made my first YouTube video for this album.  I see some things I may have to do for the next video. (Getting ahead of myself already! LOL!) But not bad for the first one.

Ok, this is going to be a short one...just to promote my video! LOL!!!
But I will get more blogging done in the future, now that I am getting the hang of all of this.
Thanks for indulging me.

My Alcohol Ink Tile

I have been totally addicted to YouTube videos and UStream videos of various tutorials and techniques for all kinds of Paper Crafts. As I have been searching and trying each tutorial, I have been making so many different pieces of art, but am still missing the 'human effect'. I mean, I have been loving all the crafts I have been creating, but I am from a different generation I guess, and the technological side of watching a video and creating by myself is leaving a lot missing. So I have decided to at least try some of the challenges that I can.
One girl that I have been following - LifeIsScrapTastic - has challenged everyone to an Alcohol Altered Tile. I used her technique to do the tile, along with another technique that she showed me which was the Tim Holtz technique of splattering alcohol inks. So that's how I did the background of the tile and then stamped with Staz-on two different stamped images...then topped it all off with Modge Podge. It was a lot of fun...and I want to thank Trina for making me move myself to do this.
I am also including some tiles I did a while back with Brilliance inks...more muted colors than the alcohol inks. Next weekend I think I will try doing some more.

Here's my alcohol ink tile - DREAM

Artsy Women


Well, here they are...I have also been able to do a baby album that I did for a fellow co-worker. I made my first video of it, and may even post it on YouTube...but not so sure. I am such a dweeb at times...I know. Anyway, thanks for the technique and the challenge.
