Hello all!!! It has been a bit crazy around here the past few weeks but I am hoping to get back in the swing of things soon!
It's officially mid-month which means another sketch over at Colorful Creations!!
Here's a look at the sketch:
I decided to combine this week with this month's mood board at Scrap Around The World!
Isn't it fabulous?!? I've been wanting to do a page with these colors for some time so this was the perfect opportunity to do so!!!
I was inspired not only by the colors, but by the flowers, the texture of the paved road, and also those round, yellow bicycle wheels!!! I just had to add my circular chipboard piece from Creative Embellishments to represent the wheels on the bike!
Any who... Here's my page:
I really like these colors together... They are perfect for a masculine page!
As you can see, I used papers from the "Capture the Moment" June kit from Frosted Designs! This kit features papers and embellies from Prima's "Time Traveler" collection as well as goodies from Ranger, Maya Road, and other major manufacturers!!! I've said it a hundred times before but these kits are so wonderful and versatile... You can make girly pages, masculine pages, off the page projects and so much more!!!
So any who... Back to the layout!! Hahaha!!! I started the page with one of the Time Travelers papers as my background, then added white Bazzil cardstock on top so that I could "build the page" myself! I used various Tim Holtz layering stencils, along with inks, mists, gelatos, and molding paste to add some texture and depth to my background.
I grabbed a couple of stamps and my Faber Castell big brush pen to create more depth and add designs to the paper!
I've been wanting to use this circular chipboard piece for some time and knew I just had to add it on this page!!! I coated it with gesso, then added yellow and black gelatos randomly to achieve my desired color. I sprayed some Lindy's Glitz Spritz for some shine, then topped it off with liquid pearls and enamel accents!
I added various embellishments, most coated with some form of inks or sprays to match my layout, including wood veneers and chipboard arrows by Heidi Swapp.
I finished my page with a title from Creative Embellishments that was given the same treatment as the other main piece!
I'm glad I gave this color combo a whirl, I am truly happy with the end result!!!
Well gang... Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
