How was your weekend? Hopefully it was excellent! Welcome to another week of crafting! This week, I’m feeling a little nostalgic – the theme for the Challenge is Paste! Even though it’s been a while, I can’t help but smile and think about the kids in preschool and kindergarden who couldn’t stop themselves from wanting to eat paste! Personally, I love paste – no, not as a snack!!! Paste is a great way to add dimension to projects, give surfaces extra “tooth,” and yes, you can glue with paste!
Here are projects by three members of the Monday Challenge Design Team that showcase this week’s theme: Paste! If you’d like to see more, stop by the challenge blog and click the person’s name or card to see all of the details and leave these wonderful people some comments! :)

Embossing paste is such a fun medium and you can do so much with it. Here I covered a little canvas in a thick layer of paste and carved a window and bricks into it. When dry, it was painted with Distress Paints and I added a sentiment with a Wendy Vecchi stamp. The branch die cut was also covered in paste for a great wood texture. Little flowers were die cut from text paper to finish the canvas.

This card is all about the texture. Shimmer and shine was added by using Wendy Vecchi Gold Embossing Paste. The Antique Linen glitter not only added extra sparkle, it gave the paste a wonderful texture as well. The beautiful Paper Artsy fern is framed with the Avery Elle Pinked dies and the Simon Exclusive banner and sentiment tops it all off.

I love playing with the embossing pastes and exploring new ideas. The Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste is the foundation that took the shape of the Poppy Anna Griffin Embossing Folder. The canvas is a reflection of us having one bird leave the nest and another getting ready to spread her wings. The Simon Says Stamp Feather Die seemed an appropriate way to reflect our kids starting to fly on their own.
