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.
