Another HYCCT Project Trio!

Hi all!  WOW!  Yesterday was a blur for me!  I had to make a trip to Costco, which was a zoo, as you can imagine.  I did manage to get a few Christmas presents from there.  A few phone calls, putting things away finding hiding spots, swim lessons for the kids and it was a whirlwind.  Tis the season!

Today I have another 3 of my final HYCCT projects for you.  First up is an altered composition notebook.  The challenge was to alter a note pad/book.  I know how much info is thrown at you during treatment, so having a place to jot things down is definitely useful.

My kids use a ton of composition notebooks for school, so we always have extra around the house.  I used a pretty heart paper from the MAMBI Breast Cancer pad and kept it fairly simple.  To add a bit more, I put a pretty white bow with a trio of roses and a sentiment on a Fishtail Flag.

Next up is my first attempt at mixed media.  This was kind of a train wreck for  me! LOL!

 Here was my thought process — First I crumpled up a piece of white tissue paper and glued it to white card stock.  I used a LOT of glue and was impatient in waiting for it to dry.  LOL!  I went over the tissue paper with watercolor pencils, thinking this would show a night sky.  Then I added red sticky tape stars with glitter — of course, since I failed to wait long enough for my tissue paper/glue to dry, the glitter kind of blobbed together.  {Insert foot tapping, rolling eyes smiley!}  I still went with it and stamped a sentiment from the Irish Blessings set from Paper Pretties.  Unfortunately, due to my overuse of glue, once it dried, it curled up far too much and the card didn’t make the trip to UT MD Anderson.

Finally, my card for the subway art challenge.

For my card, I decided to create  my own subway graffiti wall.  I sponged my brick wall using the MFT Brick Wall stencil with Toile Pink Palette ink.  Then I stamped sentiments from the MFT Clearly Sentimental about Audrey set in varying shades of pink.  Finally, I added in a few splotches of paint from the Abstract Art set.

  1. Your 'subway art' card is great! And I also love your altered notebook. the paper is so pretty and the sentiment is just right! I'm sure it would cheer someone undergoing treatment for breast cancer, at a time like that little things do mean a lot!

    Thanks for joining in at Dream Valley with your 'subway art' card!

    love Mags B x
