Inka gooodness!!

I had the amazing opportunity to work with Creative Imagination at their Pre CHA Party! What a time it was. I had a wonderful time of demoing/teaching about Inka Gold, one of the products in the Viva Colour line being carried by CI!!

Now I am going to tell on myself.....I had used Inka Gold once before but NEVER in the fashion I was demoing it in....with a dab of water!!!

I snagged a few of the tags I created during the demo and took the opportunity today to play with it!!

Cause, I had a few ideas I wanted to try!!

Of course.....who would I be if I didn't want to try it on a few Color Me Crazy flowers....and I have to say....I LOVE THE LOOK!!!

It even worked coloring the seam binding....ohhhh lala!!!

Then I had another though.....

How about if I stamped with it!! 


I just love it when I have an idea and it works. I can't wait to get my hot little hands on a few more of these colors.....oh the fun I will have!!!

CHA with Petaloo

I am still trying to regroup after my amazing trip to CHA~S!!
I had the opportunity to spend 3 mornings in the Petaloo booth demoing
with the Color Me Crazy flowers and
Luminarte ~ Radiant Rain Shimmering Mists!
And helping others to create the FABBY Make and Take!!

The CHA goers had the opportunity to make various Floral Brooches.....
One of my favorites was using the CMC Canvas Flowers.

On the first morning the team from Scrapbook.com stopped by the booth
and taped me creating the Make and Take.....

Thought I would share it with you!!!
and can I tell on myself......
I have never been so nervous in my entire!!

Here is another video they created regarding the Color Me Crazy line!!
(I made the card she is holding!!! hehehehe)

Just thought I'd share with you a bit of my CHA~S trip!!!

Had to try it!!!

With all the CHA doings going on.....I needed to take a creative break for me and just make something......cause I wanted to play.

While at work yesterday....I picked up a jar of Modelling Creme and Precious Metal Colour (both by Viva).....cause I just wanted to play with them to see how they worked.

I began my journey with a piece of Paint It! with Luminarte paper by Art Warehouse/Danelle Johnson. Using my Tag and Bookplate die.....I cut out a tag.

I pulled out one of my favorite stencils by Dyan Reavely and with my palette knife....smeared on some of the Modeling Creme ~ Mother of Pearl. With the stencil still in place I sprinked on some Vintage Glitter Glass.

Now to tell on myself....I'm not a very patient person when it come to waiting for things to dry.....sooo, I pulled out my heat tool to see what would happen and it caused the product to set up quickly. YEAHHHHH!!

I then pulled out the bottle of Precious Metal Color and randomly painted over the leaves!! Once again....I used my handy dandy heat tool to dry the layer and it worked just fine!!

I then let the spritzing begin...gotta love those Radiant Rain ~ Shimmering Mists!!.....A little Sunburst...some Ginger Peach...a bit of Sweet Whisper.....then a splash of Bashful Blue and Periwinkle. soooo YUMMALISH!!

That's when I noticed how it looked like I had outlined the leaves....not sure how/why that happened but I like the effect!

I did a little fine painting of the images on the tag....by dipping my paint brush in the open bottles of Shimmering Mist.

NOW...what Lynne creation wouldn't be complete with out some FLOWERS!!! hehehe....I chose a few Color Me Crazy beauties....I spritzed..I painted....and they are beautiful....I even used one at the bottom of the tag....which by the way is backed with a piece of Canvas Corp Denim!!

And there you have it....I feel better and I hope you enjoyed you creative journey!!!
