It’s time for another Oddball Art Co. blog challenge! This time we were asked to create an altered project with one of the adorable Oddball Art Co. digis. I decided to make an altered tag with Big Eyed Zombie Chibi Girl No. 53. You can purchase her here at the Etsy shop. I created the tag by starting off with one of the Heidi Swapp Color Shine tags as a base. I then used a pink Perfect Pearls paint in a bright fuschia color. I added tissue paper, did some stenciling, used some Inka Gold in purple. I layered up the tag with a doily, washi, and some bling. I really like how the tag came out with all the bright purple and pinks. You can participate too in our challenge by joining us on the Oddball Art Co blog. The challenge runs from the 15th of this month until July 15th. Winner will be able to pick 3 digital stamps from the Etsy shop of their choice. Please go by the blog and check out all the other DT member’s projects and submit your altered project for a chance to win. Below I’ve included photos of my tag. Enjoy!
I stared making a mini album of our newest addition to the family, our cat Moxxi a month or so ago and never got back to it …until a couple days ago. I decided that I wanted to make this album using mainly paper from the Dear Lizzy line, Lucky Charm. I just loved the collection and had recently watched a video on YT made just from the Lucky Charm collection and fell in love with it. I really like the paper even though its not a super new line…just love how the colors coordinate together. I got back into making this album and this time I worked through it pretty fast. I had a ton of fun making it and love how it came out. I stuck with mainly using Lucky Charm and a few sheets from an AC 6×6 paper pad that matched the Lucky Charm collection dead on! The embellishments are things from my stash, Lucky Charm embellishments …and generally just things that coordinated well.
The album itself is a Heidi Swapp album made from wood. The pages were all blank and white and so I decorated them up with sprays, stencils and stamping. Hope you guys like it. I’ll leave you with shots of the album!
The cover was sprayed with the Heidi Swapp navy Color Shine spray. I just added some gold Thickers and this cute felt bow that I got in a pack from Michaels. I added a bit of seam binding to the binder rings …it was sprayed with a green and yellow spray.
The inside back cover and outer back are just sprayed this mint green from the Heidi Swapp sprays.
Thanks for checking out my album. It was made with a lot of love! You can now officially call me a cat lady…and this comes from the girl that was always a dog person. 😉
Here’s a page that I worked on last month for Ashley Laura’s challenge on YT. She wanted you to work with a favorite technique of yours and of course I chose gelatos. I love any time I can add a different medium to layouts to give them an artsy-feel. For this layout I started by coloring different shades of blue around the page. I then added water so the page would have a watercolor-like effect. I used a Prima stamp set for the designs in black to create my own background. I then took 2 photos of myself and decided to create a quadrant where I layered behind each piece. I really like how this monochromatic page came out. It’s probably one of my favorite recent 12×12 layouts. Hope you guys like it too!
Time for another Anything Goes Oddball Art Challenge. This one runs from June 1st until July 1st on the Facebook Group. All you have to do is use one of the awesome Oddball Art Co. digi images to create your project. We’d love for you to join us! Check out Lizzy Love’s Etsy shop to snag a digi.
For this challenge I created another art journal page with the digi. I used the zombie bunny image which I love. I don’t know why but when I saw him I kept thinking of the movie, “Donnie Darko” so I had to use a quote from the movie. I guess he just reminded me so much of Frank the Bunny. To create the page, I used Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Teal and Bronze. Used a few stencils and some awesome lime green acrylic paint. I added modeling paste and decided to alter some tissue paper. I made a wash with my acrylic paint and painted some black and white polka dot tissue paper and then cut it out in a star shape before adhering it down to the background. I used my Jelly Roll pen to write the quote on the center of the page and then outlined this in black. I really how all the colors I use look together.
Come join us on Facebook and play along! The winner of the challenge will get 3 awesome digital images from Lizzy Love’s shop to create with!
