Scrap Whispers Blog Hop!

Hi everyone! It's the 15th again, which means the monthly Scrap Whispers Blog Hop. This month we have a tutorial from Helen, our Scrapbooker of the Year Winner. She's showing us one way of becoming a designer by creating your own, completely individual Designer Paper. There's no prize this month, but it's such a fun and easy project that you'll want to join in anyway. If you didn't come here from the link on Scrap Whispers, go there first and check it out.

So here's what you have to do:
- follow the tutorial, and link to your creation on the Scrap Whispers blog site
- hop through all the DT blogs and leave a comment on each

It's that simple!

I used my new Craft Fair wineberry Smooch Spritz ink on this one. I couldn't wait to try it out, but once I'd got all my newspaper laid out on the floor, I couldn't get the spray head to spray. I pressed and pressed it, without noticing that the nozzle was turning round. When it finally squirted, it went straight into my face and down my neck! Purple glitter ink doesn't come off easily either, so my finger nails looked a bit gory for a few days, but hey, it was all worth it.

I used Banana Frog stamps with acrylic paint, the Smooch Spritz ink and some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Snow Angel to make it really shimmery. That was all.

Here's my finished result. It was made with a special LO in mind, showcasing my precious girlie-girl niece, but you'll have to wait till Friday to see that :-) Until then, hop on to Kelly's blog and see what she has created, and have lots of fun making your own!
