Creative Scrappers #278

Hey there, friends!  It's time for another awesome reveal over at Creative Scrappers!  I had a lot of fun with this sketch...check it out:

I love layering, white space and triangles.  There is a lot you can do with this sketch.  I hope you play along with us!

I used some of the new American Craft's Shimelle collection for this.  To begin, I created a messy background on white cardstock.  I took several mists, sprayed them onto plastic packaging, and used that to smudge the color around.  I used grey, orange, teal and reddish-pink to bring out all the colors in my papers and embellishments.

The washi tape strips were all from my stash...the striped one came from Walmart!  Yep...they have a little selection of tapes now.  The red & white star one I found at the Dollar Tree last year!  Random!  It doesn't stick very well, but I still like it...and there's always glue...haha :D

I love all the fun travel embellishments in this collection.  I decided to fill up some of that white space on the sketch.  Since the photo was taken on a road trip to Georgia, I wanted to use the red bus, the suitcase and the "Go Somewhere Lovely" sticker.  I also pulled out a bicycle rub on from an older collection.  It was kind of scratched up and didn't rub on very well, but I like the sketchy way it looks.
I also layered in some Tim Holtz rubons I have in my stash as well as some triangle stamps.

Here you can see my photo layers a bit better, the stamping and the rub ons.  I also found a cute bicycle flair pin from Studio Calico in my stash.  We had just finished an RPM class, which is a stationary bike workout...similar to Spinning, which is what I teach.

See those black dots?  That's from the stamp in the Shimelle line...I LOVE IT!  You can add little texture dots onto any project with that...I really love how that looks.  I also used some Studio Calico alphas for my vertical title on the right.

I hope you join us with the sketch :)  The prize up for grabs is from My Creative Scrapbook!  Awesome kits with awesome goodies!  Don't miss out on that!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
