Hope you are all good!
A very special post to share with you today...
As you may know last weekend saw the Creativation (formally CHA craft trade show) took place over the pond in Arizona, wow it looked AMAZING
(I so want to go even more now!!)
Last November, Tim and Ranger invited me to take part in the Ranger Designer challenge that takes place in the Ranger booth, this year the theme was "The Evolution of Distress"
I was assigned with one of my favourite products....Distress Crayons!
It was such an honour to be asked.... it was a pinch me moment!
I'm so thankful to share the experience with some amazing designers and friends
(Huge thanks to Tim, Emma, Paula, Kath, Zoe, Vicky, Anita, Kassa,
Dyan, Dina, Shari, and the fabulous other designers)
I was so exciting seeing everyones take on the distress line.
We were sent one of the new Stampers Anonymous large tag Thickboards
as our base. I stencilled using Tims stencils and Rangers texture paste and gesso.
I then got busy with lots of the Tim holtz distress crayons
I added lots of layers to an Idea-ology clipboard and added a pocket watch (Idea-ology) filled with a heart and key
The numbers are Remnant rub-ons and the tape is also Idea-ology.
Those that follow my blog regular will know that I love to add my own vintage finds, so I added these cool scissors, keys, washers and an old ruler....
And here it is next to Tims in the Ranger booth!
(and yes I did let out a squeal when I saw it!)
Heres a video filmed at the show by scrap time so you can see the other designers inspirational work.
I will be back soon with some more of the samples that I created for the Idea-ology booth which I can't wait to share with you!
Feel free to leave a comment, I really appreciate you popping by xx
Hope you have a fabulous week
