Jan 09 Inspirational Scrapper

Artz de Scrap's Chosen Inspirational Scrapper for January 09 is


Hello all! Jasmin here from Brunei! But scrapping friends usually call me Jazz. Firstly, my big big thanks to Artz de Scrap for inviting me to be January's featured Inspirational Scrapper. It truly is an honour for me to be featured in such a great inspirational challenge blog such as Artz.

I am a full time working mom to 4 kids - 3 princesses and 1 prince who naturally are my main subjects in my scrapbook layouts. With 3 girls, creating with reds & pinks work best for me.

I have been scrapping since 2005 when I was first introduced to scrapbooking by my cousin during the time when I could only get my scrapbook supplies online. I don't alter items as much as I scrap, so when I was asked to be featured in Artz, it had me racking my brains on what I should feature. But nevertheless, it provided me the challenge to think of what I can share with you all.

As we greet the New Year, nevertheless we are ready to throw away our older calendars. This provided the ideal alterations to be featured in Artz where I've made use of a 2008 desk calendar.

Here's hoping you get inspired and it would be absolutely wonderful to see what you all come up with.

Once again, thank you to the Artz de Scrap crew for having me!

Sign' O Tutorial

Materials Needed: Old standing calender, glimmer mist, doiley lace, crackle paint, glimmer mist and embellishments of your choice

Step 1 - Tear off the pages of a desk calendar. We shall we be working our
alteration on the standing unit that is left of the calendar (as shown).


Step 2 - Cut a piece of cardstock that measures one side of the calendar and
glue it on to that side. You can choose to omit using cardstock if you


Step 3 - Spray a coat of glimmer mist onto the cardstock and let it dry. Then
paint the sides with crackle paint and then let this dry too.


Step 4 - Use a small paper doiley and place it on the cardstock surface and
spray another colour of glimmer mist (a darker colour than the base
would show better) over the doiley.


Step 5 - Spray over the sides of the doiley so that you can see the pattern of
the doiley (where the doiley acts as a mask). Repeat this same step on
different parts of the cardstock. Let this dry.


Step 6 - Use chipboard letters,
Thickers, die-cut alphas or any letters to decorate your altered sign.
Then embellish away.


Have fun with this AWESOME tutorial!
