MCT – February Sneak Peek Day #1 – Smash Book

Hello everyone and welcome back to My Creative Time sneak peek week for the 30th release edition!  Today we will be sneak peaking “Bracket Sentiments” & the “Bracket Dies” and the “Chevy Dies”!  For today’s project I created a two page Smash Book about the recent wintry weather in the South.

The Smash Book 365 has tons of different pages to record important events.  This page was dedicated to January 25th that is “The National Opposite Day”.  I thought It was perfect for the weather that we’ve been having because it looks like snow on a wire fence.  On the left page I used MCT old product “Winter Flake Dies” to add some snowflakes in different sizes and color.  To finish it I added some glitter to the snow.

On the right page I covered a phrase that I didn’t like with some mixed-media.  I used a snowflake stencil, gesso and glass bead gel and on top I sprinkled fine glitter to create a snowy icy look.  I used MCT new product “Chevy Dies” on the top and bottom of my page in bold colors to contrast.  I made a mini flip photo album using the MCT old products “Stitched Journal Die” and “Stitched Circle Tab Die” to hold the pages together and to embellish it I used the new products “Bracket Sentiments” & “Bracket Dies”.

Here are some of the pics of how our house looked in the snow storm.  To record this date I used MCT “Stitched 4×6 Journal Die”.

For the title I used MCT “Lowercase Fun Dies”.  You can see the texture of the different media I used and the contrasting types.
