A FEW Color Connections creative tour projects 61

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, May 26, 2011 @ 11:34 PM | , , ,

T.G.I.F.! Hi there! WARNING ~ this post contains A LOT of photos! I FINALLY completed A FEW :) projects as promised from the Color Connections creative tour that I recently attended last weekend hosted by 3 of my favorite papercrafting companies: Pink Paislee, Tattered Angels and Prima.

This was my first time ever attending a "workshop" type event and let me tell you, I was blown away! ALL the instructors were not only friendly but extremely patient and we used nothing but high quality products and plenty of it! I would recommend this event to ANYONE who wants to create, learn and be inspired for days while being accompanied by KIND, TALENTED ladies and using nothing but AWESOME products!

Before I get to the projects, I wanted to share this beautifully decorated table set up inside the room where the creating took place.
mmmmm....... It was not just eye candy but the goodies inside the jars were edible treats in case someone's blood sugar needed a little pick me up! :) LOL
Here we go...First up is a layout sharing a photo of my sweet hubby, Scott and I standing within the walls of the Roman Colosseum:
This layout features various patterned papers, fabric flower, rhinestone chunky bling brad, stamps and pleated trim from the gorgeous Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology Collection, alphabet letters from the fun Pink Paislee Soiree Collection along with a Prima flourish.
Next, is a layout sharing a photo of Scott and I standing near the Rialto Bridge in Venice, Italy:
This layout features various patterned papers, ephemera, and embellishments from the beautiful Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden Collection, patterned paper, stamps and pleated trim from the gorgeous Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology Collection, a wooden shaped banner from the fun Pink Paislee Soiree Collection, canvas letters from Prima and vibrant Key Lime Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels.

The nifty "raw" wooden shaped banner was colored using Key Lime Glimmer Mist then stamped using stamps from the Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology Collection.
I "glittered up"the darling "love" birds die cut from the Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden Collection ephemera:
Next, is a layout sharing a photo of Scott and I in London with the British Parliament Building in the distant background:
This layout features various patterned papers, ephemera and stamps from the awesome Pink Paislee Daily Junque Collection, a wooden shaped teapot and twine from the fun Pink Paislee Soiree Collection, a Prima pearl embellishment and vibrant Key Lime Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels.

The darling wooden teapot embellishment shown on the tag below was created by spraying the "raw" wooden teapot with glimmer mist then finishing it off with a layer of glitter:
Last but not least, is a layout sharing a recent photo that you may recognize of my precious step-daughter Meredith celebrating her 14th birthday on May 19th:
This layout features various patterned papers, rhinestone trim, a mini note card, dimensional stickers, flags and rhinestone brad from the fun Pink Paislee Soiree CollectionPrima cloth flowers and various Glimmer Mists and Glam from Tattered Angels.

To create the flower embellishments we started with fab Prima cloth flowers, sprayed them using various Glimmer Mists and Glam from Tattered Angels then after they were dry, layered then attached them together using a beautiful rhinestone brad from the Pink Paislee Soiree Collection.
Please remember these are only A FEW of the projects I created while at the event! I will share more in the near future but I have to bet busy with a few design projects before I head out of town on vacation. I have a boat load of unused product from ALL of these collections and companies, that I am sure I will put to good use for either making more layouts, cards, tags or altered projects!

Thanks so much for looking ~ I hope you enjoyed your visit! I will be back on Saturday for an all new Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Be Sweet!
