Using Stamps

Yesterday my grandson, Jude, had his 7th birthday.  We took him out to lunch and shopping.  We wandered around Toys R Us for a while before he picked out two sets of Lego that he has had his eye on.  This year we have started this new tradition of taking the grandkids out to lunch and shopping and we have had so much fun with them.  We get one on one time with them and they get what they really want for a birthday present.

I picked up this set of cute little kids at an Angel Co. party and I colored him with Copic markers.  He is holding a frog in his hands and I added a little Stickles to it to bring it out.  I don't know where I got this frog stamp, I think it was a hand me down, but it fit the page so well.  The frog is also colored with Copic markers and dotted with Stickles.

I want to thank everyone that visited all the blogs from the Scrap Tiffany design team blog hop.  I loved reading all of the kind comments that you left!

ScrapTiffany Recycled Blog Hop

Welcome to Kay's Scrappy Day blog.  Scrap Tiffany is having a blog hop and the theme is Recycling!  If you just arrived at my blog you will want to start at the beginning of the hop at Scrap Tiffany.  I know you will not want to miss any of the great projects presented by the design team.  If you arrived from Katie's blog, Scissors Spatulas and Sneakers, you are in the right place to follow along.

For my recycled project I started by going to our local Goodwill store.  I was lucky enough to find two, plain brown, paper mache bunnies for 99 cents.  I scooped them up and thought what a great Easter project.  I stopped by the LSS and picked out two different patterned light weight paper because I thought it would work best for this project and also another bottle of Mod Podge. 

I tore both pieces of paper into strips and then tore it again into smaller pieces.  I laid down wax paper over my table and then pained the pieces with the Mod Podge and applied it to the paper mache bunnies.  I alternated the paper around to give the bunny some dimention.  After it dryed I used distress ink and the Tim Holtz blending tool and gave everything a little distressed look. 

I wanted to embelish them a little so on one bunny I added a piece of lace and applied it too with Mod Podge.  I used Rhinestones from my stash on both bunnies.  I felt that they needed a little pastel color so found little pastel colored buttons and applied them and black buttons for eyes.

I let them play outside for a while when the sun was out before bringing them indoors for my center piece on my dining room table.  The branches for my Easter egg tree are recycled too.  Last year I noticed my neighbor had trimmed one of his trees and all these branches were piled in a small trailer.  I just had to go over and ask if I could have a few.  Of course, he thought I was crazy for wanting them.  I think for next year they will get white spray paint put on them.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Your next stop is Jennifer.  She is a great artist that will sure to wow you with her creation.  Don't forget to congratulate her on her new baby girl born April 9th!
