Basically Bare and BIG prize!

Av forståelige grunner blir denne posten på engelsk . Men jeg vil fortelle at jeg søkte på en plass hos designteamet til Basically Bare og at jeg var utrolig heldig og kom meg igjennom første nåløyet. Ganske så stolt av det altså. Nå skal jeg bare igjennom eksamen (som bl.a. er denne blogposten).
Et tips vil jeg gi, legg igjen en kommentar under her innen 15 mars og du kan vinne en stor pakke full av Basically Bare produkter, inkludert nyheter fra CHA vinter kolleksjonen. 

I am overexcited because I applied to the design team call at Basically Bare and I made it through the first round. How cool is that?? Now it is the final exam, and here is where I need your help. There is something in it for you as well. After reading this post, please leave a comment by march 15th, noon eastern time and you will have the chance to win a BIG grand prize pack, including all the CHA Winter Basically Bare albums and embellies. 
This is what Basically Bare products are, and for a girl who love altering books and embellishments this is heaven :

Our products are designed with YOU in mind! Ink them, stain them, and paint them pretty colors. Rip them, distress them - they can take whatever you throw at them, and their beauty shines through.Basically Bare is proud to be a part of the Tattered Angels Color Connection team! Tattered Angels' mists and paints are perfect for altering Basically Bare's albums and embellishments.

Out of all the great items Basically Bare have I had to pick three of my favorite products which was not an easy task with so much to choose from, but here goes. 

Number 1
Basically Bare - Basically Embellies - Bare Booklets - Mixed Media Album - Polly's Pockets
First of all I just LOVE this booklet - mix media album.I could use it for so many things like album, sketchbook, AJ book etc. but for this project I would love to use it as a travel book. We are going to Fanø in Denmark this easter which is where we have our holiday home.
I want to cover the book with gesso, mist, paint and maybe some ledge paper, but also leave some of the chipboard and cardstock bare in all its beauty. During the holiday I would love to fill the book and pages with colors inspired from the scenery at the island, do some Art Journaling, write down stories and happenings from our stay. I want to add some pictures from things and places we love at the island. Some of the pockets could contain findings from Fanø.I truly love the pockets and the loose pages inside them. 



Info: This album from Basically Bare is sized to hold your most precious memories. Packed from cover to cover with alluring and alterable materials, not only will you find this booklet versatile, but fabulously fun to work with! This album is bound with metal spiral binding which can be loosened in order for you to disassemble and reassemble your booklet. This album measures approximately 5" x 8.5" and includes the following materials:
Covers: Heavy weight chipboard
Inner Pages: Heavy weight chipboard and heavy cardstock pockets
Made in the USA

Basically Bare - Basically Embellies - Bare Basics - Cardboard and Chipboard Pieces - Happy Little Houses Set

These houses are so versatile. I can use them in the book, maybe with some gesso and stamping or some white and black paint to resemble our house on Fanø. I could mist them and of course do some doodling. I would also love to use these houses on cards, along with washi tape or distress ink. 



Info: These embellishments from Basically Bare are designed with you in mind! Paint them, dye them, mist them, ink them....the possibilities are only as endless as your creativity. Alter and distress until your heart's content, these tough little embellies are made from premium materials and can take the abuse. Each package includes six heavy weight chipboard house pieces and six double sided corrugated board house pieces (12 pieces total). Made in the USA.

Basically Bare - Basically Embellies - Bare Basics - Acrylic Chipboard and Felt Pieces - Celestial Shapes
Last but not the least I have choosen the Celestial shapes. They are beautiful and I love that they are in different materials. I would use them together with the houses on pages in the book and on cards. I like to use embossing powder on chipboard embellies and here there is also embossable acrylic, how cool is that. Golden stars and moon would look good with the colors I have choosen. Pan Pastell work well with the felt clouds.

One sun, one moon and three stars in heavy weight kraft chipboard, three stars in flexible, embossable acrylic and four clouds in premium stiffened white felt. These shapes measure approximately - Sun: 3.5" x 3.5", Moon: 2" x 2.5", Clouds: 4" W x 2" H, 2.5" W x 1.25" H and the Stars: 2" x 2", 1.75" x 1.75", 1.5" x 1.5".

Finally my simple color test  and a moodboard I've made for the color scheme I have choosen.
