Frosted Designs Challenge–Grids

Hi everyone,

The Fabulous Friday Challenge is up again over on the Frosted Designs Challenge Site.

This week, the challenge is to use Grids – anyway you want, really.  The Design Team have come up with some fantastic ways to use grids on projects, cards and layouts.

This is what I did:

Grid-Project

It was my turn to do a project this week – so I decided to do a mixed media canvas for Connor’s room.  I used the colours and theme of the room for inspiration, and of course – don’t you just love the Dr Seuss quote?  I love Dr Seuss, and this quote is perfect for my rather individual little man!!  LOL!

The grid elements are in the stamping (Tim Holtz Ultimate Grunge), the Washi Tape and the Thickers.

I have used a WOW Altamatz  ALTA022 to add Texture Paste Chevrons. 

Here is a close up!

The Altamatz are just so amazing for adding texture paste – they are such good quality, and much thicker than other templates.  I just used my finger to smear some texture paste onto my canvas – and I didn’t have to worry about the plastic moving or buckling in any way, because it is so thick!

I highly recommend these – you have to get onto your Scrapbooking Retailer to get some in, you will love them!

Cheers!
