Scor-Pal & The Play Date Cafe...what a FAB combo!

Hey what an exciting post I have for you today : ) Scor-Pal is teaming up with The Play Date Cafe this week and I am beyond excited to "play along" this week. A few of us on the Scor-Pal DT created some projects using Scor-Pal products that went along with the color pallette at PDCC.

First let me show you what I came up with then I'll share the color story for the challenge.......

Love these colors....I was inspired right away when I saw them.

Next up are some photos of the completed project and then I'll have some photos at the end that show you how I created this mixed media wall art.

Cute flower made from some yummy 3 Girl Jam Crinkle Ribbon

I made this sparkly beauty with Scor-Tape...I'll show you how in just a moment.

Now for some photos of the creative process for this project : )

I started by painting over this metal wall art piece I picked up at a craft store.

Once the paint was dry I adhered some burlap strips using some Studio Matte Medium & Scor-Tape.

While the burlap & Matte Medium was drying I went to work on my sparkly chipboard embelishment. I used the TH Ornamental die for this. After I ran it through my Vagabond I covered the entire piece Scor-Tape...

Once you peel the backing off the Scor-Tape your left with some sticky goodness...

Next I sprinkled some chunky pink vintage glitter all over the chipboard...

I pressed it into the Scor-Tape just to make sure it was a nice even layer...


The next few photos show how I made a floral embelishment with more chipboard, Scor-Tape & some yarn...

Such a fun & easy way to create your own embelishments!!  For the rest of the project I used a variety of chipboard letters, paint, die-cuts, twine & various papers.

I totally had a ball creating this mixed media wall art and I am really excited to give this to my friend...who doesn't know she's getting it..hee hee. She reads my blog so I had to bring it to work today so I could give it to her before she saw this post : )
