Do you like working with Embossing Paste?  Well break it out people because that is what our challenge is this week!  I really enjoyed this challenge because, to be honest, I always forget to use this great medium.  My initial thought was to make my obligatory card but then I decided to add an extra challenge to myself instead - make a scrapbook page!

I am a card maker.  I don't make scrapbook pages very often as I find them a struggle.  Much to my surprise, this page took me no longer than it would have if it had been a card!  I guess, I was just in the zone that day!

This photo was taken this past Christmas.  My daughter and I were riding the Christchurch Tram sight seeing the very altered city I know after the earthquakes nine years ago.  There are a lot of empty lots and a lot of construction going on too.  I wanted to reflect that with the elements I used on the page.  The stitched lines and grunge look as the city is sewn back together, the sparkly embossing paste and clean open spaces for the new buildings and parks that have gone up.

I love the addition of the shimmer on the page but it was really hard to photograph.  I would love to see how you like to use Embossing Paste on your projects.  Click on the challenge photo to head on over to the challenge site and share your work with us!

If you want the supplies to recreate my project, I would be delighted to be your demonstrator.  Click on the pictures below to shop my New Zealand store 24/7!
