It is time once again for me to play along with the Creative Inspirations DT. The challenge I gave the girls for this week was to find inspiration from a favorite desert.
As it is summer I thought about marshmallows. I love a golden brown marshmallow that has been roasted over a campfire or a BBQ. My nephew happens to agree with me. =)
This year, my mom found some big marshmallows to bring to the family BBQ. *when I say big, I mean HUGE!*
In case you are wondering, the smallish looking marshmallow is actually the normal LARGE marshmallow. The big one is something called a CAMPFIRE marshmallow.... We couldn't resist having a contest to see who could stuff the most marshmallows in their mouth with these... Non of us got more than one.... They are HUGE!
the funny thing is, he really did manage to get this sucker in his mouth... don't have a clue how, but he did.

Close up of left page. This is the s'more he made with a campfire marshmallow... he had to have grandma help hold the thing it was so big and messy!
This is the edge of the journal tag *that I will fill in later..*. I stamped the swirls in Tanzanite CI. I love how shimmery and colorful these paints are, and they work so well with stamps! I also edged the tag with Chocolate and Coal CI paint to match the look of toasted marshmallows.
The main frame was also edged with Chocolate and Coal. To do this, I simply loaded a little paint onto a finger dauber and rubbed it along the edge of the paper.
I painted in the swirls with Winter Frost. This is a white paint, and I love it! I also brushed in a little bit of watered down Tanzanite along the edges to bring in the blue and give it a little more interest.
Another fun thing I did on this LO with my CI paints is to stamp on a photograph. I used Mocha Latte and Autumn Wheat. They dry quickly and stay great on the slick surface.
These are the swirls tilted slightly to really show of the intense bling factor!
Isn't it beautiful? LOVE IT!
