Happy Thursday, Chickies!
It's been a crazy busy day, with school and volleyball over an hour away, but I am finally getting around to posting my final reveals using the beautiful August kit.
For my first layout I used more of the green, blue and orange papers that I LOVE from the kit. I used the white background, which really allowed the patterns and colors to pop.
This layout was inspired by my love of Rebecca Sower's books and the changes that she brought into my scrapbooking world. Up until I read her books, I played only by the rules when it came to scrapping, and would only scrap in chronological order and with pictures. After reading her first book, I became inspired and my scrapbooking joy took off.
And a couple of close ups:
For my last project, I used my scraps to create a fun little card. Did I mention, I LOVE that green woodgrain paper? ;)
As you can see, the Scrap…Continue
Good Morning all!! Hope the beginning of your week is treating you good!
Well I'm here today with a little technique playing with distress inks. Now I didn't come up with this by any means but I thought it was a great way to play with distress inks, a kind of mixed media I guess.
I'm not huge into mixed media, I like it, but I think I'm more scared of it than anything lol. I'm kinda intimidated of it, but I'm trying to change that.
So this is what I started with:
I grabbed 3 of my favorite distress inks at the moment, a card and some little sponges. I started with one color and eventually blended them all three together.
When I'm happy with the way it looks I grab a water bottle I keep in my scrap room and get some on the tips of my fingers and flick and splash it over the ink. You can do as much or as little as you'd like.
I let this set for a minute or so and then I take a paper towel and lay it over the top of the card, press down and…Continue
I really had some fun with this month's kit! I created 5 layouts with it and some scrappy embellishments as well as have some goodies left over for more paper crafting to come...love it! I thought these combinations of papers, embellies, tape, etc. really worked for these photos of Zoey kayaking this summer. I added some of the dew drop looking stickies right on to the journaling strips and to the photos to make it look water-like almost.
I used the reverse cut from my cut-out title "Hoggie Doggie's" and love how it turned out! I wasn't originally going to do my title this way. It's always fun when I'm creating with an idea in my head of how it's going to be and having that idea lend itself to something else completely!
Be sure to get your own August kit today! You will love creating with it for sure!…Continue
