      (Sorry, guys- I guess my post disappeared, because I did this yesterday)

      For those of you gals who got the tech kit, we challenge you to USE it!!!!! Since we started this challenge, the tech kits have been project-based, but this month, it is technique-based, so I'm changing up the requirements:

      1. Create a project using the gelatos and AT LEAST one of the following- the TA specialty paper(s), and part or all of BFS chipboard window. If you use other things, please use at least 60% of the July kit collection (main, flowers, cs, embellishment, and mediums add-ons).
      2. Upload your project to the gallery and post it here with a brief description of how you completed your project by August 15th. You can enter up to two projects.

      Here's what we came up with:

                      I was intrigued by Andie’s July 13 video and decided to try and make my own Faux Finn paper. I used a 6”x6” section of the TA suede paper that was included in the July Project Kit, along with the Gelatos. When everything was dry, I took out my jar of Embossing Paste and Prima mask and pretty much covered the entire square.
                      Meanwhile, I used a CW stencil from a very long ago kit to trace an artisan shape on a piece of corrugated cardboard. I gave it a thorough coat of Martha Stewart Crackle in Redwood and when it was dry (this took about 24 hours), I painted it with the LSG Mica that we received this month.
                      The BFS chipboard window was primed with Gesso, then all but the punch-out swirl was painted with the gorgeous Gold Ferro; the swirl itself was colored with the Spiced Pumpkin Silks.
                      To form a backdrop, I traced a top and side onto some of the cardboard and tore the other side, then covered it with black Gesso.
                      I spread some of the Tangerine Gelato onto my craft mat and spritzed it with water to color the length of seam binding on top.
                      I used a bit of the gold Darice bling that came with the Main Kit to trim the shutters. The ephemera and button are from the Embellishment Add-On; the large flower is from the Main Kit. The rosette ribbon is from last month’s Brass Shilling Kit. The metal trinket is also from a past kit. The lace and IAR rosebuds that I colored with the Silks are from my er, collection.

                      The image is from a photo taken by my niece last May. She was taking her dog for their moing walk and caught this gorgeous sunrise with her phone.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
