August 2015 Challenge


Hello everyone!!!  Welcome to the month of August!!  I can’t believe we are back to school in a little while.  Didn’t school just end? Time isn’t waiting on anyone.  Don’t blink to long, you might miss the month!

Our new challenge will be so much fun and it might get messy!!  Our challenge this month is all about Texture!!  Adding texture to your cards gives them such great dimension.  The feel of the card is amazing too.

So what can you used to added texture?   You can use texture paste or embossing paste on your project, or using a technique such as embossing (either embossing powder or embossing folders). Textured card, papers or stitching could be used. Basically, anything that gives your project a ‘touchy- feely’ style!

Please be sure that your project contains at least ONE main HERO ART Product!  This will be fun and interesting.

The Design Team has created some great inspiration pieces for you.  Take a look:

Hello, I’m Kymona Tracey. Who am I, you ask? I am a women who never slows down and loves it. Yes... I am the energizer bunny's sister! I just keep going and going (which is something that I am working on, if you follow my weekly wishes on my blog). I am a single mother of two wonderful children who are 8 years apart. My 16 year old son is a true self-made jock who plays every sport you can think of ! My 7 year old daughter is a real life princess who loves anything crafty and girly and absolutely hates anything related to sports. Talk about yin and yang! ...but I love it!! Besides running from one activity to another with them, I work full time at a hospital (public health background), facilitate a reading group at work, teach high school students on the weekends and have a huge love of learning new things. I’ve taken classes in photography, web design, knitting, scrapbooking and card-making. I love them all, however, my true passion is card-making. I was introduced to card making back in 2004 and haven’t turned back since. I started out as a hobbyist just making cards for family and friends. People were always ecstatic when they received a card from me. What they did not know was that it made me feel just as special to make a card for them. This passion pushed me into teaching card-making classes at work with a couple of coworkers who wanted to learn how to make projects for their families. In September 2013, I made a big leap and created my blog, Kreative Kymona. Besides being a mom, I think that this has been one of my most rewarding accomplishments. Just being able to share with my world community makes life so rewarding!
