Lindy's Stamp Gang 'Mad Hatter' Blog Hop {introducing the new design team!} 'Paris - Cool Adventure' Layout





Well as my regular readers know that includes ME!  Weeeeee!! 

 I am so happy to have made the design team at Lindy's. 
 It's a dream come true for me & doesn't seem like work at all.  
In fact I have to stop myself from spending all my spare time 
working on my projects so as not to forget about my other
 design team commitments & my own challenge blog LOL!

To celebrate the addition of 5 new designers to the 
Lindy's Stamp Gang team we are having a blog hop! 

 The 'Mad Hatter' Colour Collection is also new & it is amazing!!  

I already have a full set of Starbursts {mists}, 
EP's {embossing powders} AND Magicals 
{concentrated pigment powders} & they are really cool!  

So colourful & vibrant, they look really great with 
a white base that is so popular at the moment!

----------------------------------------

The blog hop runs from now 
{midnight Pacific Standard Time in the US}
 on the eve of Thursday 5th September - to midnight at the end 
of Monday 9th September 2013} & the prizes up for grabs are:- 

THREE $50 VOUCHERS TO THE LINDY'S STAMP GANG 
ONLINE STORE where you can choose whatever you like!

Here is the blog hop order - starting with me!

Helen: http://helentilbury.blogspot.com {that's me!!}

***RULES - in order to be in the running for one of the vouchers 
you need to leave a comment on EVERY BLOG {ten in total}. 
 Prize winners to be announced SOON after the hop!***

I have put the new designer's blog addresses IN BOLD so you
 can see who they are.  The other four ladies, Cindy, Jessica, 
Limor & Nolwenn are the Elite Design Team of original members.

--------------------------------------


I used the 3 brightly coloured Starbursts & the 3 Flat Fabios 
from the Mad Hatter Collection for my layout above.


To control the mists I sprayed them onto some watercolour
 paper first, blending the colours, then cut & tore up the 
paper I had created & used it as my photo matting.


I used the Queen of Hearts Red as my statement colour so 
sprayed that directly onto my base as you can see above.


In the photo above I have used the embossing powder 
sprinkled straight onto wet gesso {very technical I tell you 
LOL!} but it gives a nice, random sparkly effect!


I've also used embossing powder above, sprinkled straight onto 
the negative section of my Ranger Pop Dot Sticker sheet.  This 
is ultra easy as it is already sticky so no need for more adhesive!


I used some super cool new flowers from Flourish with a Bling! (available HEREthat took the mists really well as they all started out white originally.  

I will be creating a layout similar to this for my Lindy's Stamp Gang later this month.  If you are interested in seeing how you can make something really similar yourself please subscribe to my You Tube channel HERE.   

Thanks & Happy Hopping!!
