Guest Designing at Scrap Africa

Happy Wednesday!  I'm excited to share that I'm a Guest Designer at Scrap Africa...woo hoo!  I got to play along with the new sketch that was revealed yesterday.  You can see the blog post HERE.  The sketch is awesome, and I had so much fun using it for inspiration.  A huge thank you to Denise and Evgenia for inviting me :)

I pulled out lots of the Styleboard line from Crate Paper as well as some Plus One from Amy Tangerine for this one.  I wanted to pull the blues and pinks from the photo and go from there.  I also added in lots of gold.

My background began as white cardstock.  I got out some plastic and sprayed some blue and green mist all over it.  I sprayed water over it and sort of blended it a bit with a brush.  Then I laid my cardstock on top of it an smoothed my hands over it.  The result was a fun and watercolor look.  Then I took a 6x6 circle stencil and sprayed mist over it, and then used the stencil like a stamp.  I wanted a messy, random and watery look, and I like how it turned out.

I was so excited about these wooden frames!  They're from Michael's (the Recollections brand). I embossed them with gold embossing powder...aren't they adorable!  I'm loving shiny gold these days :)  LOVE the vellum hearts from CP!

So many layers here...paper, wooden frame, more paper, vellum, washi tape, a vellum film strip from CP, and some thread.  I'm loving the depth here.

More glitter and vellum hearts...I wish I had more of those!

I love this transparent Hello circle.  It matched my color scheme perfectly.  I added "cutie" and then added more tid bits for layering.

Here's the sketch:
