Challenge 73 - Glow in the Dark!

Halloween is just around the corner and for this challenge we're getting spooky. I've seen lots of fun Halloween embellies, papers and accents, but the thing that really caught my eye this year is the glow-in-the-dark products. Martha Stewart has glow-in-the-dark glitter. So does ModPodge.

So your challenge is to use a glow-in-the-dark product. Any kind, any way you want. And please, let us know what & how you used it.

Post your layout by Sunday night, November 7th to be considered for a RAK.

Yes, it does glow, although it's a bit hard to photograph....

Here's what the team did --

I used Martha Stewart's glitter in two places - the chipboard swirl and a rub-on "stickez" product by Studio G. Here's the chipboard glowing in the dark:

For my project I used Glow in the Dark Paint by DecoArt. I painted all the little stars on the patterned background paper with it, and then the corrugated letter P.

Very hard to photograph, but you get the idea.

Photojojo has a cool tutorial for making your PHOTOS glow in the dark!

I use ModPodge on canvas sticker (Little Yellow Bicycle) and all other steckers in my LO(epoxy stickers: LYB, pop-up stickers: Melange Creative Imaginations)  itself are the glow-in-the-dark products. Those are not newest but I love it stil now. The title is Fancy Pants glitter cut,too.
Also, I use Dimentional fabric paint (bronze metallic color) of the doodle .

Challenge #72 - Chipboard

After a month's hiatus we're back and ready to go!

For this challenge take some of that chipboard in your stash and alter it!
The prize for this challenge will be an assortment of chipboard goodies!


I altered my letters by covering them with Gesso and then sprinkling embossing powder on the wet paint. I didn't heat the embossing powder. For the border piece I glimmer misted, stamped & embossed, and added some clear crackle paint.


I used a piece of grungeboard that had been embossed using a Tim Holtz alterations die, then stamped and heat embossed, then painted over with acrylic paint. Once the paint was tacky I wiped the piece with a slightly damp paper towel to remove paint from the heat embossed image.


I use white chipboard alphabet for this title which was aleterd by my handwriting. Other printed chipboad of Fancy pants is so cute.


I used an assortment of chipboards in this layout. Some chipboards were just simply inked around the edges and some were painted then inked and then applied Glossy Accents.
