Round 2: Scappers Haven's Iron Chef IV

For Round 2 of Scrappers Haven's Iron Chef IV, the contestants were asked to showcase the following menu ingredients: paint, stickers and stitching. We have to come up with one altered item, one LO and one card for every round.

Here are my submissions:

Layout - Late Bloomer

Materials used: Cardstock (brown and yellow), Bo Bunny Tuscany patterned papers, DMC and Anchor thread, acrylic paint, stickers (Provo Craft alpha stickers, 3d stickers), MM journaling pad

How the menu items were used:
Paint: I used a cardboard tube as a stamp. It's rounded end became the design of the brown cardstock; paint was also used in the alpha stickers in the title and on the edge of the photo
Stickers: 3D sticker (tag), sunflower (used to substitute the two letter O's), floral and leaves stickers (used together with stitched vines), alphabet stickers (used as title)
Stitching: back stitch and V stitch were used

Journaling: I have always been a late bloomer. In school, I only excelled and was given my first academic awards when I was in 5th grade. Thereafer, I had shown excellence in both academics and extra-curricular activities, earning ma numerous awards and positions while in high school and college.
When it comes to lovelife, I was also a late bloomer. I had my first boyfriend when I was 18 years old. I only had two boyfriends, the second one became my husband.
It was only two years ago when I tried my hand with the internet. Before that, I didn't have an email account. You won't expect me to stay on the computer for long. Now, I am a certified blogger and internet surfer. I am a late bloomer, yes but I'm glad I bloomed.

Altered Item - Cork Board

I bought this corkboard at 88 Store.

Materials used: MM Acrylic paint, patterned papers, Anchor thread, Provo Craft alpha stickers, flower and insects stickers, Basic Grey alpha chipboard (TIMI'S), ribbons, lace, trimmings, ricrac, bling, buttons

How the menu items were used:

Paint: used to paint the wood and the letters (TIMI'S CORNER)
Stickers: alpha stickers used as part of the title, flower and insect stickers used to decorate the cork board
Stitching: used on the edges of the patterned papers

Card - Mom

Materials used: patterned paper: Sassafrass Lass and Basic Grey, DCWV cardstock, DMC and Anchor thread, 3D stickers (Hibiscus flowers), MM acrylic paint, bling, Fancy pants Bella Brush stamp, Versafine Ink, Scrapworks fabric alpha tabs,bling

Just this morning the results for Round 2 were announced. I was so happy to learn that I topped my group (Group C) and I was the overall third placer. We were 16 in this round.

I am also so proud to be their May Guest Designer. I will be receiving a guest design kit, retail value $30.00 CDN, plus free shipping and 25% off anything I would like to order in the store!

As a Guest Design Team Member, I am expected to complete 3 layouts and an altered item with the kit using different techniques and also to write a small technique article for our newsletter.
