Welcome, Whether your a regular follower of mine or you are here to follow the hop today I want to welcome you to my place!! I love that I have a place that you can come and get to know me through my art!!
Today the Scrapping Wonders Design Team is collaborating with Accent Scrapbooking. Accent Scrapbooking has amazing flair badges that come in lots of styles and colors. They are so beautiful. Today we are using these for our project.
I will have the line up at the end of my post if you get lost along the way. Be sure to comment along the hop and you will be entered into the drawing for prizes of a $15.00 gift certificate to Scrapping Wonders and a $25 (Canadian) gift certificate to Accent Scrapboking. You should have come from PinkPie’s site, wasn’t it the Traveler’s Notebook gorgeous!! I love the cover work.
Let’s look at what I created for today:
I used the Mixed media Traveler’s Notebook Insert from the Scrapping Wonders store. I love how this paper really holds up to any of the media I want to add to my pages. Today I added some Crushed Coral Shimmerz mixed with light modeling paste to make it lighter and more of a whipped look. I used a 6X6 Echo Park houndstooth stencil across the page. I didn’t want the edged lines of the stencil to be really harsh so I added torn strips of patterned paper in layers on the top and bottom of the stencil marks.
I layered some exclusive cut files from Clique Kits with splatters of Shimmerz Vibez and Spritz. I also attached a label from Pretty Little Studio with my mini attacher. I added the date multiple times to create that ghosting effect you get by stamping multiple ties without re-inking the date stamp.
I did more layering on the top edge of the stenciling. I made smaller layers and a thinner cut file leaf insert with a flair badge. The thickness of the Mixed media paper of this insert will really hold up well with the flair’s weight too.
For the opposite side I added this grid patterned paper because it mimicked what was on the flair badge. I also wanted to mimic the muted colors that were in the pack of flair badges too. I used a black and white square photo.
I added hints and pops of color among the layers of silver and grey. It really adds to lazy look when I took this image first thing in the morning before my coffee. Before the color of the day breaks free as the warm coffee starts to wake me up and the yummy yogurt flavor bursts life into my day.
I added my title by using this script font words from the Tales and Dreams Collection at Pretty Little Studio. I also made sure to use the same cut file, label and even some of the torn patterned paper as the other side to tie the whole spread together.
I love how this brings your eye across the whole spread.
Thanks for stoping by today and seeing what I have created for the Hop. Make sure you follow the hop and comment on all the blogs along the way for a chance at the gift prizes.
