Techniques challenge

I saw a card or layout like this somewhere & can not remember where so I can't give full credit for the inspiration of this design! But I did this for a techniques challenge, use as many techniques as you can without overdoing it. So... I used dry emboss, inking, chalking, layering, paint, sewing, ribbon , pearls, stickers, rub-ons, mulberry paper, paper tearing. whew. And I like how it turned out.

Finished some more...

Wow! I am on a roll, I have never done so many layouts in such a short amount of time! I am really loving these challenges.

This Carousel one is for a bling challenge. Think there is enough? The large 8x10 photo was printed on a transperancy. You can't really tell on here as much as you can in real life. I used the Cricut Accent Essentials to make the little thingys on the side & I wove gold rope ribbon through it & added rhinestones. All the pictures are bordered with rhinestones. I also used them on the horses that had real rhinestones like on the reins. I cut the title out of Cricut Alphalicious & added stones to it.

This one is for a multi pic one page challenge. I actaully started this page & my 6 yr. old saw me getting it out & just begged me to let her help with it so she actually finished the page for me. She cut out all those flowers on her own! So I have to say this is a mother daughter effort.

This was for a scraplift the person before you challenge ( ) This is an old picture that my aunt emailed me so it was printed off my computer & it's not a great picture anyway but it turned out great with these papers! I just love this pic. It is my dad holding my baby brother & my grandaddy holding me.

This is for a sketch challenge. It was a hard sketch, took me a while to figure something out. These are 'my boys' They are inseperable very hard to get individual pictures. They were actually sitting side by side when I took these & I just cut each other seperate.:)
