'Timeless Memories' Off-the-Page Picture - Scrapmatts {Lindy's Stamp Gang/Prima}

Hi everyone!  I hope you all had an AWESOME Christmas!!  

Mine was fab, although it's always weird once it is all over
 & time to clean everything up, get the house back into order
 & get back into the right mind set to get back to work again!

I'm here today to share with you my very last blogpost for
  Scrapmatts.  The DT spec was 'Free Choice' so I made an OTP
for my husband's mother, featuring her son & 4 grandchildren, 
starting with a wooden blank that I painted using Golden mediums.

I coloured them with Lindy's Stamp Gang magicals (mica powders)
that come in very small circular containers but are VERY
 concentrated so you just have to add a tiny, tip-of-a-teaspoon
 amount to your medium. {Tip - first spray to activate with water}.

This way you can dye your gesso/modeling paste/etc to whatever 
colour you like - AWESOME - and these tiny treasures take up 
SO LITTLE storage space, which is a major plus for me as I work
 from a tiny studio.

To read more about my project please visit my blog post at
Scrapmatts HERE. (where all chipboard products are linked
back to the Scrapmatts online store) & I state the Lindy's
Stamp Gang colours & products used.

I have had an amazing year with Scrapmatts!

My term is over now & as you know I am
moving over to 2Crafty, where I hope I will
have just as much fun!!

& HERE to sign up to my You Tube channel.  I am posting a new
video at least once a month now & I keep them all under 10 minutes :)

 See you all soon!!!
