Y&FH Challenge reminder - Anything Goes Challenge #26


Uh oh!  Looks like I forgot to schedule this!!  Sorry about that!

Today Team Fumi is sharing their Anything Goes inspirations for your viewing pleasure.  Head on over to the Y&FH blog to see all of the beautiful creations.  I'm so excited to see all of the projects being added to our challenge, unfortunately I did see several of you link up more than once and it's too bad those entries will have to be deleted from the competition.  It's really mind-boggling to me that some people don't read the rules, but you know I've actually come to expect it.  Sad but true, unfortunately.  I do want to say "Thanks" to the ones who actually follow our rules, we greatly appreciate it and know that you are not only in it to share your creation but that you respect what we share as well, so Thank you!!

Now on to my project which I have to tell you I did a little cheating.  No it's not that bad, I actually made this at the Ontario (California) Rubber Scrapbooking Expo as a make n' take.  Now I wish I had taken a photo of it before I stamped my image to "complete" the frame. 

Acrylic frame featuring Fumi with Bear Backpack

So all you have to do is picture the left side without an image and that is what I made.  I couldn't leave it blank, it did not look finished to me, now it does.  This was our make n' take that Renate' and I did at the Clear Scraps booth.  Isn't it gorgeous?!  I don't remember ever making something like this!!   It was really fun and easy to make and I learned a lot about new products and how to make acrylic look like this!  I know if I tried to do it again it would take me longer than the 20 minutes it took at the show.  I seriously need to go to their blog/website to watch some videos.  We got to use some new products that I probably would never have bought, but ended up buying and can't wait to use.  It's all Viva decor and Adirondack inks and stuff and lots of sparkling stuff.  I know a few ladies that would love some of these products if they don't already.  I also purchased some acrylic and chipboard letters to make a photo album.  We'll see how that works out.  I'm the queen of buying stuff and never using it, but for this project I'm thinking this might be a new beginning.  Check back closer to Christmas as that's when I hope to have it finished. :)  How about a couple more pictures?...  Ok you twisted my arm... hahaha...

Fumi with Bear Backpack with a vintage feel

I wish you could see how beautiful and shiney this frame is.  We used alcohol inks, staz-on ink, inka gold metallic rub and a few other things I can't remember and to glue it all together we used 3-in-1 craft glue.

You're special with bird

This is the other side.  The bird is another acrylic piece and the bottom part is made of cork paper.  We also used a dark brown pearl pen to add some nice dimension to the project.  I even added a small dot to give the bird an eye.  :)  This is one shabby chic project that I loved making!  Next up I'm going to try and tackle the word album.  Wish me luck!  :)

What a great acrylic project! I am oh, so scared to work with acrylic because I don't know what to do with it!! Aaaaack! But look at you...stamping and smearing and using inks on this frame......GORGEOUS in every way.

20 minutes? Wow - there is NO way I could finish something this gorgeous in just 20 minutes. I think Fumi was the perfect choice for the image to complete the frame. Looks like a vintage "back to school" shot.
