Creative Scrappers #260

It's Creative Scrappers Reveal Day!  Woo hoo!  Today marks Sketch #260, and it sure is a fun one :)  Check out the cool triangles in this one:

I decided to challenge myself and use a difficult to scrap photo.  The reason I think it's hard to scrap is the color...that green isn't easy for me.  It was St. Patty's Day, so naturally I had to dress my little goosie in green :)  Out of all my paper collections, NONE of them coordinated with this dress.  So I got creative and mixed and match random papers together.  I tried to go with all the colors in the dress and make sort of a rainbow page.

I just used a ruler to draw some triangles and then used watercolors to paint them.  Then I went over them in black pen.  I have a really cool triangle stamp set that I pulled out for this...I love how it turned out!

I had a random set of buttons, too, that just happened to match my colors.  I had to make them work somewhere.  This area needed some pink, so I added some pink floss.  Quick and easy!  Another fun thing I'm into lately is tearing my washi tape.  I like the way it just peeks out from behind paper and gives a little color pop.

I decided to leave the floss "as is" here and just wind it up and layer it underneath the paper.

It seems like forever since I printed off my journaling on the computer!  I love the look of journaling strips.  I've just been on a roll lately of writing directly on my paper.  Sometimes you just have to shake things up :)

I sure hope you play along with us!  Be sure to check out the rest of the team's layouts HERE.  Lots of inspiration to pull from :)

Don't forget who the sponsor is this month!  A kit club I'm very familiar with :)

The deadline to submit your layout is January 31st at midnight EST.

Have a wonderful day!
