    Controlled Mayhem; New Circus & Steampunk; Flowers & Leaves Sale!

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Coins Coasters & Holders Kit, Kristin Batsel, Pierrot/Harlequin/Carnival

    Wow! Lots of new items, a 35% off sale (!) and the most adorable, vintage-y circus project you ever will see!

    Controlled Mayhem by Design Team Member Kristin Batsel

    Aw… so cute! Scroll down just a smidge for a wide photo showing Kristin’s Controlled Mayhem project, using the scrapbook papers, coins & pockets that are also in the May Coins, Coasters & Holders Kit! Here’s a bit of the intro from Kristin’s blog post:

    Here’s some Controlled Mayhem to brighten your day: five coins and five pockets decorated in a circus theme. I used some metallic paint to brighten up the edge of each coin in shiny gold. Grommets were added to the upper left corner of each pocket, and they were all bound with a binder ring. A tassel made with fun and fuzzy fibers (and a sweet silver elephant) was added to the ring for maximum circus fun.

    Plus Kristin includes a mini tutorial! See the photo at left as a teaser.

    Here’s a link to all the supplies Kristin used. Be sure to visit her blog post for lots more info & photos! AND see below in the Giveaway section for another photo and a chance to win lots of the supplies!
