A few of us are having so much fun with them that we’ve decided to put together a 4 Part HOP and the rules are very simple. Each Tuesday throughout the month of August we will be sharing creations made with a variety of these fabulous stamps to inspire you.
All you will need to do is HOP to each of our blogs each Tuesday in August and leave us a comment.
Be sure to include your email address because on August 30th we will EACH BE GIVING AWAY A PRIZE. We will be sharing what our individual prize packages are on our blogs. REMEMBER … you will need to comment EACH TUESDAY to qualify for the prize! AND … if you share our hop info on your blog, your name will go in twice towards the prize. WAIT THERE’S MORE! If you become a follower/subscriber you get a THIRD CHANCE!!
So what do you say?

Are you ready for WEEK 3 of our hop??
This week we girls are creating our Prima Doll Projects with FALL in mind and what a fun time I had creating this shadowbox using the mixed media doll with a pocket dress. I've used a Halloween theme but her dress is actually sunflower design paper and we all know how gorgeous those sunflowers are in the fall! And, I took the liberty of hand cutting a Halloween mask for her! See ... you can do SO MUCH with these fun dolls ... aaahhh takes me back to my youth!!
Instead of actually altering a canvas, I decided to flip it over and use it as a shadowbox.
My background scene is from an OLD DCWV 12x12 pack as is the paper for around the border. I dipped into my scrapbooking stickers, etc. for some of my embellishments. I actually cut the bottom part off my butterfly to create tentacles for her to wear with her winged costume. All items used will be listed at the end of this post. Here are a couple of close-ups for you and of course you can click on the image to make it larger (I think).
There are slots on either side (top & bottom) of the canvas to insert stretchers ... but I used them to insert the end posts of my fencing so it has a bit of a curve in it. The bottom posts of the center section were cut off. Looks really cool IRL!
Be sure to hop over to EACH of the girls blogs and leave some love!!
REMEMBER: By leaving a comment at EACH blog EACH week in August, YOU will qualify for the prizes being offered!
AND, it would be VERY HELPFUL if you
- add your email address
- let us know you've become a follower
- let us know you've shared this hop on your blog.
Those last two items will get your name put in the hat additional times so we don't want to miss anyone!
