Designer Spotlight at The Greeting Farm

Hello Farm fans and Happy Monday!!
Today is my day to be Spotlighted at The Greeting Farm Blog. I'm still reeling over the fact that I'm September's Guest Farmer and that I get to spend time with the lovely and talented Farm Ladies and the uber cute Anyas, Chibis and Creepers.

For those of you that do not know how I began my stay here on blogger here is a quick run down: I began my crafting adventure a few years back after a friend convinced me to go to a scrapbooking party. I was thoroughly against it at first but after visiting the craft stores several times, I could no longer resist and I gave in. heheh. I wanted to preserve my pictures and memories in a fun and colorful way and I became a Cricut girl. However after being on blogger, I came across digi and rubber stamps. I quickly became enamored because they reminded me of the days of when I enjoyed coloring and creating my mini pieces of art. Now after a year, I consider myself a true bonafide stamping girl. I do still own my cricut machine and I still love it and create projects with it but it is rare. I now first turn to my Prismacolor Pencils (my medium choice) and my purple envelope (this is where I keep images printed out or stamped ready to be colored).

As I said, when I first came on blogger I was a cricut gal but what lured me over to digis and stamps was The Greeting Farm. I came across their Wonderland Digi Set and I knew there and then that I was in love. In honor of that I decided to showcase a project featuring this set. 

I, like many of you, am a HUGE fan of Wonderland. I just love everything it stands for. Granted, I may never fully understand it and always wonder why a “Raven is like a writing desk”, however I will enjoy using images such as these to create artwork that allows me to spend and relish my time down the rabbit hole.  I also chose to create a project that featured digital stamps because I love the versatility of them and I wanted to show it to you.

The versatility of the digis allowed me to blow up the mushrooms many times over so that I may get the effect of the giant mushrooms. I also shrunk the Alice and the white rabbit to add the scene I created.

Here is my final product. It is an altered picture frame that will be used in a scrapbook.  I first covered the base with DCWV Green Stack Paper and then I glued on top my colored images. Easy Peezy :)

Here’s an extra project I wanted to show you featuring the white rabbit. I created this a while back when I announced my Guest Spot for The Altered Alice (loooooove that team and I'm sad my guest spot is coming to an end) but I thought I would throw it for fun/reminder. At first glance you may think its a card but it is actually a large embellishment I created for a scrapbook page that is about me. Although I'm a bit embarrassed to officially admit it, I can be like the white rabbit (in this case a black bunny) and run a bit a late, late, late from time to time. Lol.

Thanks for letting me share a little bit of me and for stopping by. Please make sure you come back all this week for some fun new previews from Crafty Sprouts featuring Greeting Farm cuties and Simply Betty Stamps. See you soon!

Im joining Kristy's (Some Odd Girl) fun linky party that features our fave project of the week. This was a difficult choice for me, lol, but Im choosing the frame as my favorite project of the week. I dont know if its my best work of the week but I really love the concept of it, so I'm going with it :)

Wow! You are one busy gal. I'm blown away by all of your projects. How do you do it? LOL...I'm tired just peeking around your blog!
I just wanted to stop by and let you know that we'll miss your creative inspiration at the Altered Alice. I'm hoping for a fix though...please play along in each month's challenge. Your projects are so refreshing!
