Need for Speed

Moxxie created a RACING line that is full of bold color.

What better pics to use then race car pics. But my son doesn't race....or does he?

Looking through some Amusement park pictures, I found these snaps of my boy and his buddy Elyza in a race car ride. Zroom, zoom. He loves this ride and now I love these pictures now that they are paired with such fun colors, papers and elements.

The stickers from this RACING line are seriously fun and easy to use. They do all the decorating for you!

Lumpy, bumpy Modeling Paste

Mold grows on cheese. I like cheese. I like molding paste.

Check out what I made using MODELING PASTE.
The first time I heard someone call it molding paste, I assumed they meant modeling paste and were just saying it wrong. Until I bought some. 

I use both  & 

All the above were created with plastic templates. I then used a plastic knife to smear on the modeling paste and removed the template and let dry. Two I left white. Several I used color mist sprayed over to alter the color. To create the yellow stars I added yellow ink into the modeling paste before spreading it on. All are rough and lumpy and imperfect- just how I wanted them!

Volleyball? Having fun with MOXXIE

MOXXIE just put out a bunch of new lines. They alway have some great sports lines. I showed off the Football line last week. Well they have this fun, playful Volleyball line. I don't have any Volleyball pictures....but that did not hold me back.

Here's what I started with - Volleyball by Moxxie
And here is what I did with it. The rainbow paper just sings joy so I had to use that all. Then the fun yellow and grays in varying shades add to the page.
Admittedly, I wanted to get funky with techniques before I started so I inked on the arrows from a mask. Then I spread Modeling Paste over a template of circles. Once dry, I misted that with yellow. I think the yellow circles mimic balls to me and are a nod to the line being a sports line even though I used a playground pic of my son. I must admit, I sloshed glue all over the page while trying to glue down the twine, but you know what? I'm okay with that. Scrapping isn't about perfection. For me its about the memories and the process of creating.

I had fun with this line and I think the page reflects that.
