Page 2 Altered Record Album-Album Mixed Media

We are on page two my Altered Record Album-Album Mixed Media.  I think it starts getting more interesting as the challenge did not have detailed tutorials but rather instructions with a challenge at this point.  The challenge is about misting.

Background...four different mist colors from Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.  I created a mask from Fiskars Jenni Bowlin's Jester border punch and mist some more.  For good measure I spatter mist by spritzing it into a small lid and dipping a toothbrush into the mist and then flicking it over the page.

I created my banner with Jenni's Scalloped Banner Squeeze Punch...but I did it differently.  You can see it on my YouTube Tutorial HERE.
I also used Fiskars "Bird is the Word" Squeeze Punch but cut it up to get different looks.  This is a Limited Edition punch and I could not easily find it on the net.  It's worth it because of it's versatility to find this one and pick it up for your stash.  

My journaling/title are stamped words with clear embossing ink, then embossed the words, and sprayed mist and wiped them off for a great look.
The clouds are stamped and misted on Lutradur Mixed Media Sheet and then heated to get a great texture.

My water lily is clip art printed on Claudine Hellmuth's Sticky Back Canvas and painted with mist I had sprayed in a lid.

Other:  Fiskars Stamps For the Birds and Lasting Love Quotes AND Fiskars USX nature cloud; Tim Holtz grungboard elements (wings painted with mist); Bo Bunny Serenity. 

Of the whole page I love my photo best!  She is a real beauty and a joy to have as my grandgirl.  She is only 8 or so in this photo and now she is a senior in High School. 

Update on Giveaway
D's Paper Studio Sponsored Challenge is all about comments this month.  Leave a comment and you are entered into the drawing at the end of the month.  I'll add another entry for following by email.

Note on the Google Friends Connect...aka Join this site:  I can no longer see it on the blog and I expect I now understand what some of you have been saying.  When my Firefox updated it will no longer allow me to see the Google Gadget.  I image it is the same for some of you.  Google is helping me to either set it up as a Google+ account or something.  But it will be fixed.  If you see and can join so you can add D's Paper Studio to your Google Reading list and leave me a comment that you did it I'll add another entry for Jenni Bowlin's Studio $20.00 product surprise package drawing. 

Remember that I have a BIG secret number that when the someone comments and it equals that number of previsous comments (aka.  comment number 91) then I will send that person a Jenni Bowlin punch!

Loads of ways to win this month.

Have a Crafty Day!
