I'm back, and just too late to enter my letter T at the Craft Barn.

Hi ladies, I'm back from my holiday in France! Had a fabby time, hot weather and a little whirlwind which came up in about a minutes time and was really scary. Spent the evening without electricity and our band couldn't perform. However, singing on an out of tune piano in the dark with only candles did add to the atmospere the evening and it was very memorable.
So, I made my letter T for the Craft Barn Challenge, but unfortunately the collection already closed and I am too late. Bummer, but I still want to show you my page. I picked the word: TANTRUM, because I have this lovely LOTV stamp of a little girl throwing one LOL! It so reminds me of my daughter Kyra when she was small.
I made the background with Twinkling H2O's en Creative paints which gave it this lovely shimmer which unfortunately doesn't really show on the picture. 
I coloured the stamp with Copics; the ribbon of her present, also the bit on the floor, were painted with creative paints. I painted her crown with golden Perfect Pearls diluted with water. I then gave it some purple pearls with a Via Perlen Pen. I stamped some swirls in the background and added a shadow around the diecut shape with a black Faber Castell Pitt Pen.
In Germany I bought this golden dimensional paste and it works wonderful. Great effect. I made this lovely corner with a new Andry Skinner stencil and some chicken wire. Of course I took out too much and to I added some more chicken wire on the other page, just because...LOL!
And I still owe you the word I picked, so here it is, and doesn't she depict it perfectly?!
Hope you enjoyed this page, I certainly enjoyed making it. This coming week will be a busy one, even though it's my last holiday week. Putting all the tables back into my classroom en preparing for the new schoolyear, so there will be little blogging time. Oh well, it's for a good cause right?! Hugs Frea

Hallo dames, terug van mijn vakantie in Frankrijk; heerlijk was het! Ik heb dus mijn pagina met de letter T gemaakt, maar was net te laat om nog mee te doen. Balen. Maar ik wil 'm jullie niet onthouden. Ik koos het woord Tantrum, wat zoveel betekent als boze bui of driftbui, en ik heb deze prachtige LOTV stempel die het woord perfect weergeeft.
Ik heb de achtergrond gemaakt met Twinkling H2O's en Creative paints waardoor deze een prachtige glans heeft wat jammer genoeg niet te zien is op de achtergrond.
Het stempeltje heb ik ingekleurd met Copics; het lint van het cadeautje, ook dat op de grond en de rok van haar jurkje hebben wat glans gekregen door Creative Paints. Haar kroontje heb ik met goudkleurige Perfect Pearls, aangelengd met water geschilderd en met een paarse Viva perlen pen pareltjes gegeven. Op de achtergrond heb ik nog wat swirls gestempeld. Rondom de uitgestanste vorm heb ik met een zwarte Faber Castell Pitt pen een schaduw aangebracht.
In Duitsland had ik een tube met goudkleurige textuurpasta gekocht, en ik heb deze hoek met een gloednieuw Andy Skinner stencil aangebracht. Mooi he?! Verder nog wat kippengaas hier en daar en omdat ik wat pasta over had heb ik ook nog kippengaas op de andere bladzijde aangebracht, gewoon omdat ik het leuk vond hihi.
Ik hoop dat jullie het een leuke pagina vonden. Komende week wordt weer regelijk druk. Moet de klas herinrichten en voorbereidingen doen, dus veel bloggen zal er weer wel niet van komen.
Maar vooruit, alles voor 't jong nietwaar? Groetjes Frea
