Creative Scrappers #281

Happy November, y'all!  I hope you're having a great weekend.  The weather here in Florida has been gorgeous!  It's cool and crisp and feels fantastic for a change.  No humidity in the air makes for great hair...haha!

Are you ready for another sketch reveal from Creative Scrappers?  This one is awesome (well, they all are), and I had a great time using it as inspiration for my layout.

Check it out:

I used some of the gorgeous new September Skies collection from Heidi Swapp.  The colors and patterns are so beautiful...and I just love the color magic die cuts!  I began with white cardstock, a Crafter's Workshop stencil and some modeling paste.  I used a diamond shape this time around...for no particular reason except that I hadn't used it in forever.  I went back through the stencil with some acrylic paint and my finger to add some messy diamonds in matching colors.

I also added some triangle stamping around the page.  That is from the stamp set in this collection.

I love this "amazing" stamp.  I stamped it a few times until the ink was gone. I love that faded look.  Here you can also see the textures created from the paste.  That orange flower is one of the color magic die cuts.  They're all white until you spray it with mist, rub it with ink, or rub it with paint, which is what I did.

I really love these transparency words!  And there are triangles, too!  Super adorable.  I added some machine stitching, stickers and washi tape to my top section.

I have never loved wood veneer as much as I do these words...oh my gosh.  I painted this one pink.  A very easy way to add color, and so much fun!  I wish I had about a million of these!

One more shot of the painting and paste texture.  I also painted the wooden camera.  Nothing fancy...seriously.  Just dipped my finger into the paint tube and rubbed it on!  Very scientific...haha.

You should definitely hop on over to the Creative Scrappers Blog and check out the rest of the team's designs.  And don't forget to upload your layout by the end of the month for your chance to win a prize pack from Paper Camellia
