Welcome to our "Moustache" (or "Mustache" of you prefer) themed SMASH* Blog Hop. Why dont you make yourself a coffee/cuppa or pour yourself a drink and sit back and enjoy!
If you've come from the amazingly creative Angie then you are right on track! If not then you might like to go to the start with the beautiful Lizzie.
I have never used Moustaches in my SMASH* books before so of course this meant I had to go online shopping ... a number of times. I ended up with quite a bit of stuff (as you do hehe) so I've made a few pages for this hop!
My first pages, called "All about the mo", use the super cool "Manlie Moustache" images from Angie Delarie. My family reluctantly went along with my crazy idea for the photos - I thought it was funny!
Lately I've been having fun experimenting with using paints and mists on my pages. On this page I've used a bright pink Chalkboard spray and I love the effect of the random blotches as well as the fine mist!
I've also used a heap of October Afternoon "Midway" products (washi, stickers, alphas, papers), Amy Tangerine camera embellishment and alphas, SMASH* date stamp, Martha Stewart doilie, Typo heart, Studio Calico wood veneer star & word bubble, Greatest View flat backed button, and a doilie, button & tag from my stash!
All of these pages are in my blue Retro SMASH* book. I just love this book - many of the pages are too funny to cover up, including this one with the horse! I have 2 horses myself (I have always been horse mad - but of a childhood romance thing I think!). As soon as I saw this page I knew I had to use my horses photos - in disguise of course! My family just looked at me and laughed (again) when they saw these pages - soo my sense of humor! These pages are titled "In Disguise".
I've splattered white paint on this page. I just loaded up a paintbrush with water and watercolour paint (those solid paint blocks in a set that kids love to use, see below) and then tapped it (with my fingers or a pair of scissors) to splatter across the page.
On these pages I've also used The Beary Scrap Mustachio stamps, WOW Chipboard mini mo's, October Afternoon Midway chipboard shapes & alphas, Amy Tangerine stamps, alphas & stickers, Typo measuring tape ribbon, Studio Calico wood veneer apple, Stampin' Up! lace trim, Greatest View flat backed button, and a doilie, fabric yo-yo, washi, word bubble sticker, chevron bag & tag from my stash!
After finishing these pages I still had lots of "mo" stuff left so I wanted to make a page all about famous "Mo's". Funnily enough these pages are in a row in my SMASH* book - can you believe it! These are titled "Motel Moustache".
Here is a photo straight after spraying.
For these pages I've used Angie Delarie "Manlie Moustache" images, The Beary Scrap Mustachio stamps, KaiserCraft wooden moustaches, October Afternoon Midway stickers, papers & alphas, Martha Stewart doilie, Typo tag, and washi, flat backed button & chevron bag from my stash!
Phew, you've nearly made it to the end of my post ... but wait there is more ...
I have some fun digi's to giveaway thanks to the generous Angie Delarie. One lucky person will win one of these sets of images (either coloured or b/w). Arent they fabulous!
