Artz de Scrap's Chosen Inspirational Scrapper for January 2010 is
Ching Phillips I am happily married to my wonderful husband and I have a son who is a senior in high school. I was first introduced to scrap-booking by my sister in 2004. It became a hobby, and later I joined the challenges in 2008. I got further involved and created more and my hobby evolved to an addiction (that‘s what my husband says!). I love shopping for new styles of pattern papers and embellishments and to share layout creations with my web-blog viewers. It pleases me to accept new challenges and I enjoy learning various techniques and skills from others.
I am delighted to be your Inspirational Scrapper for January 2010. Thank you, Artz de Scrap for inviting me to share my simple craft tutorial.
Materials / Supplies needed: Beverage cans Acrylic paints ( your desired colors) Craft knife Variety of decorative scissors Glue gun Paint brushes Patterned papers (scraps) Cardstocks (scraps) Embellishments ( your choice of Themes) Magnetic sheet (4x6) Ruler Step-by-step instructions: 1. Clean the two empty beverage cans with warm water, rinse and dry. Mark one half of the can with masking tape around the can’s circumference and cut using craft knife. 2. Measure the can’s circumference and then decide how many petals you want. Depending on the size of the beverage can’s circumference, will determine how many petals you may decide on. For instance, the can’s circumference I used was 8 inches. Therefore, I use 1” for each petal, resulting in a total of eight petals. Using scissors cut eight evenly space lines from the top edge to the bottom of the can. 3. Press the center of the can with your two fingers and carefully bend the cut petals. 4. Trim each petal with decorative scissors. 5. Paint both sides of the petals, stamen or center of the flower and the base. Allow to dry. 6. Cut and cover the base with a piece of magnetic sheet board and then, adhere using a glue gun. 7. Using your choice of themes, embellish the stamen or center of the flower and secure same with glue gun. 8. Upon completion, one can decorate the refrigerator with one or more altered beverage can magnetic flowers, use to hold notes, daily schedules, reminders of things to do or use as a gifts. Here are our takes for this tutorial.
I am an emptynester who lives in Florida USA with my DH and cat, and who loves to paint, sew, quilt, bead, knit, and even scrap and alter items. I love to play with boxes, bottles, found objects, paper, paint, ink, type, and embellishments; and I guess you would say that my style is eclectic - a little arty, vintage, whimsical, and even humorous. I love to use color as an element, to paint, to mix patterened papers, to mist, to stamp, to make embellishments - you name it, so I am really looking forward to working, no, playing along with the other DT members and seeing what they and all of you create.
Hi, I'm Cynthia Lloréns from Brazil, a mother of 3 wonderful children aged quite different. Sergio, 23, Isabella, 15, and Marcella, 3, married to Marcelo, a wonderful husband.
I am a lawyer by profession, but I love food, and I'm committed to my company which is a buffet parties for weddings and anniversaries, because I love cooking,and have been scrapping for the past two years and am totally hooked. I love felt, chipboard, ribbon, and patterned paper to name a few.I do volunteer work with children suffering from cancer, teaching scrapbooking for the past year. It is often a thankless job but I really believe that God has put each child in my life and I in theirs for a reason.
I am scrapping, reading about scrapping, shopping for scrap supplies, or talking about scrapping. I love everything about it. And when I am not scrapping I like to read, watch scary movies, reality tv, and spend time with family and friends. I am so excited to be a part of the Artz de Scrap!
