August Special Guest - Candy Rosenberg!

Hello and Happy Friday!  We are super excited today as we have a Special Guest, Candy Rosenberg, with us!

Thank you Candy for sharing your amazing talent and creativity with us!  Before we get to Candy's first project, let's get to know her a little better!

Candy Rosenberg has been paper crafting since she was a child and comes from a creative family of artists, cartoonist and painters. She has been in the scrapbooking industry since 2007 and during this time has been in online marketing, design and education team coordination, product development and commission work for a number of manufacturers and magazines. There is no mistaking her style; a blend of vintage, shabby chic and mixed media all inked up, fussy cut and layered. When she first started out her style was not like "others," however, no matter what she never compromised her style and now her style is more mainstream than ever. Candy tells us the only reason why she does what she does is to inspire others, teaching is her passion. I would advise not to say "I do not have a creative bone in my body" in her presence! She is known for pulling her scissors, a bit of paper and adhesive out of her purse and perform an impromptu "mini" class to prove to you that every single person is creative...your style is all that you have to practice.

Candy is blessed to still have one teenager left in the home and the creative bug has spread to her and her older sister. The youngest is a duck tape artist and attends CHA with her mother, the oldest daughter is a student at the Art Institute of Portland for Photography and Design (which makes moms job easier with plenty of photos). Not to leave out her son who is in the Navy, he is creatively navigating the waters.

Here's what Candy has to say about the August Kit!

I squealed when I received this fabulous Frog Dog Studio mixed media ATC (Artist Trading Card) kit in the mail to create with.  I nearly fainted when I discovered the little wood windows and clear newspaper print film.  My mind went crazy and I got started right away.

Paint the ATC board with the Inka Gold, covering it thinly to make it appear like it is painted and swiped on the card.  This will create the background.
I placed a piece of the clear film, cut to size on the back of a wooden window pane.  Cut a square hole in the ATC card so that you can see through the window.  Hand cut the angel from the printed sheet and added with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam dots stacked two high so that it sits even with the window pane.
Add the wings from the same sheet using the same technique of stacking the foam dots.
Add May Arts burlap twine and laser cut anchor to create the final look
I love the vintage nautical feel of the finished Artist Trading Card.
That is such a wonderful project!  Thank you Candy! Be sure and stop back next week for another project from Candy.  We can't wait!  Please stop by Candy's Blog and say hi!

We hope you have a wonderful weekend!
