Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a fall layout featuring some gorgeous Momenta textured cardstock that has a dreamy water colour look.
The cardstock comes in an 8×8 paper pad with three sheets of each design. The colours will go with almost everything.
I put two of the 8×8 cardstock sheets in opposite corners on a sheet of 12×12 cardstock and then filled in the corners with some shimmery Art-C paint and a self adhesive stencil. Because hey, who doesn’t like to play with shimmery paint? This stuff is gorgeous. And the colour stops my heart.
I filled in what was left of the gap between the stenciled paint and the cardstock with a piece of May Arts gingham ribbon, and then mounted my photograph. (P.S. By the way, especially for Canadians, I had this 8×8 photo enlargement printed at www.blacks.ca for 99 cents on a sale last month. I am super impressed with the quality of their photo printing, and they have frequent sales, especially if you order a quantity of prints).
Believe it or not, this layout was inspired by the October sketch in the Creative Scrapbooker sketchy challenge. Like last month, I used the sketch as a starting point although it significantly evolved from there….. but hey, that’s the creative process. I started out thinking of doilies as circles, but ended up swapping one out for a stamped image. Be sure to pop over to the new Sketchy Gallery and upload your interpretation of the sketch!
I embellished the layout with a variety of other Art-C products – a metal dragonfly sticker, wood letters, doilies, buttons and then added a couple of stamped Impression Obsession images to complete the project. This is the Flourish 3 stamp from Impression Obsession. So pretty.
This is a clear stamp set called ‘Camera Collection’. There are some great images here for embellishing scrapbook pages.
I stamped with Tim Holtz clear embossing ink from Ranger Industries and then heat embossed with Tim Holtz distress embossing powders. I think these embossing powders might be discontinued by Ranger, but any medium green embossing powder will do. Adding embossing just emphasizes the stamped images a little bit over regular ink.
Have a creative week and happy scrapbooking!
