I am floating on cloud nine

I have some amazing news. I am a finalist in the Rusty Pickle Amazing Race competition to win a place on the design team.

When i saw the call i was initially thinking its not for me, as there was no way i was Rusty Pickle material. But then i realised i had lots of their product in my stash collection, so why not go for it. You gotta be in it to win it, lol.

So the initial application had to include a double LO, minibook and a altered project. So the LO was not a problem as i had the funky candyland papers which just cried out for a funky boy LO.

Next was the mini book. I had all the popstar range in B & W that i wanted to use alongside another colourful range to add colour. The album was a real labour of love as it took me about a month with just doing little bits each night in between getting ready for my brother's wedding, college essays and revision but i was very happy with the finished item.

But the altered item was tricky. I had so many ideas sketched on paper but nothing felt right. I made a shadow box LO with one collection of papers but still no joy. So we went away to my bro's wedding and whilst there we travelled the fab charity shops in Frodsham (slighter richer donations there, lol) and i found the perfect item for changing, a mangy pine clock.

So after sanding and distressing with blonde Moments crackle glaze, i came up with this below.

I just loved how it turned out and it now sits in my bedroom as these are my colours.

So i am now off to finf past amazing race details to get an idea of what it is all about.
