Having said that I did just complete my first September challenge! I decided to do the Show Us Your Stuff challenge which was simply:
I decided to run with a hot pink colour for my extra colour and I used a Charms Creations star for my handmade embellishment. This is the page I created:
We had a new little girl join our extended family in June and I decided that some pictures of my eldest (and also eldest cousin) holding the youngest would make a good page, and hot pink worked well this too! I used some gorgeous Amy Tangerine papers, they were in just the right colour and some picked raspberry distress ink (also the perfect pink) in the mix with the black and white.
How cute is the little skull button on the Charms star?! I know you don't automatically associate a skull with a baby page, but it is cute and I think it works! And there peeking out is one of my favourite scrapping items, the D-lish journal spot!
Lately I have been playing with brush script and decided to use my own writing to create the title. I have found that a size 1 round brush with water colour paint has worked well for me. Loving the look and I plan on experimenting a lot more with this.
I recently purchased some cool stencils from Flutterby Designs (along with some other goodies!) and this word stencil is one of those. I have used gesso through the stencil (quite thick) as it is a good resist medium. Can't wait to play some more, and I might just need some more of their stencils!
So, that is it for today, thanks for stopping by,
