All gone...

Spark Some Kreativity Saturday @ The Kraaft Shaak

The theme for this month's Kraaft Shaak Design Team is "Kill The Box". We have been tasked with using as much of the Mixed-Media Kit contents Heather sent each of the Design Teams Members. I was sent the "Desk Set" Mixed-Media Kit.

For Project one, which was to "Alter something contained in the Kit", I altered the Note Holder into a cute little Bunny Hole. The Second month we were challenged to make something wearable from items in your Kit. I made a Bracelet from the Finnabair Mechanicals and a t-shirt bag decorated with items in the Kit. You would think this Kit would be pretty depleted by now after all those items, but NOOOOOOOO - all her Mixed-Media Kits are just chocked full of stuff - papers, embellies, paint, mediums, book pages, play pages, map pages, mechanicals, micas, bling, die-cuts, and just so much more!!

It was fitting I create an organizer box for projects as my last project, using the very box this wonderful Mixed-Media Kit was sent in and also, in keeping with the theme of my Kit - Desk Set, I had to, right??

So this is the beauty I created, using as much of the items in the Kit as possible.

Here is a video showing all, well most of, the steps involved in making this Desk Top Organizer.

The Last Spark...

Wasn't that fun!!!

Here are some of the pictures I took along the way, as well as lots of pics of the finished product. It is just so gorgeous with all the micas, and glitters and glass beads, and that chalkboard paint - WOWZER!!!

The making of:  Adhered all the papers contained in the Mixed-Media Kit (except one very special page). Adding the Clipboard as a backstop AND actual chalkboard...

Note the descriptive sheet on the bottom? Not tore up as the other were, cuz I wanted to see this itemization Heather includes in each kit, every time I use my Project Organizer!!! That's mine - it has MY name on it!! WooHoo!!!

Closeups of all the micro beads, glass beads, sequins, art sugar, mechanicals, doilies, paper/pages, chalkboard paint, micas and mica flakes, crackle paste, stencil pattern, et al ... just such an amazing Kit!!!

 See all the amazing cracks in the Platinum Crackle Textured Paste!!! Just look at all those cracks and fine lines!!!

Love the sparkles here!!

Those Splash Micro Beads are just so yummy!!

See how that Charcoal Art Sugar Glitter glistens in the sunlight. It's soooo ultra sparkly!!

Oh, those toilet tissue holders just make wonder storage holders for scissors, tweezers, pens, brushes, pencils, rulers, glue, ribbon/twine... all the things I use when making projects!!

Isn't this Sea Breeze Chalkboard Paint the best seaside color ever!!! And it's super smooth texture feels like suede!!!

Sitting on my desk!!!

Thank you for playing along, and I hope this inspired you to make a desk organizer for your projects. The original Design Team Members current project for the Kraaft Shaak can be found on their blogs:
