Frosted Designs...

Hello Everyone!!  I can't believe its been two weeks since I posted anything!  That tells me summer holiday break is in full swing.  :)  The boys are home 24/7....or more correctly...I'm out at a park or beach with them and friends for most of those waking hours.  I'm finding myself scrapping at night to stay caught up.  Like tonight..... :)

Frosted Designs has another great Fabulous Friday challenge.  This time around it is "something new".  A new product or a new technique.  I thought this was quite appropriate for the new year that is just about to begin.  I'm looking forward to more new challenges in 2012.

My sister-in-law Michelle sent me some paper clay that I had been wanting to try and thought this would be the perfect challenge.  I found a button in my stash with good texture and pressed the clay into it.  I tried to make them fairly flat but they curled up some when they dried, making them challenging but still fun to work with.  I painted them with acrylic paints and then glued them on my layout.  You could put a clear coat of sealer or mod podge on them to make them shiny and more finshed looking.  

Make sure you check out the other designer's projects on the Frosted Designs blog.  They are amazing!  I hope you'll try something new for this challenge.  Make sure you link it up on the blog for the chance to win a great prize and so I can check them out!

Happy Crafting!!  :)
