Hello everyone! I am sharing this layout I created for The Crafty Maven Getaway. Today is Art Party Friday. I decided to use a mix of the Halloween Mood board and this weeks mood for my layout.

I began with American Crafts White Textured Cardstock. I did not prime my page with Gesso, I usually never do. My inspiration for the layout also came from an older Basic Grey Halloween/Fall chipboard set. I began began by getting a little messy and creating my background. I grabbed a piece of packaging and stared by creating the green color that was in the chipboard set. I mixed two Lyndy’s stamp Gang mists, Ponderosa Pines Olive and My Mojito Green. I then added in some yellow from my inexpensive watercolor set. I also used the Lindy’s Stamp Gang in Red Hot Poker Orange and one of my Shimmerz Vibez in Plum Tuckered Out. I added some splatters in the orange and purple as well as some splatters with black India Ink. I felt like my background was not complete. I took my Ranger Water Color Brush and added some shading with Grey from my inexpensive Michaels Artist Loft Pan set.

 

I layered a black piece of cardstock behind my photo and I added a few patterned papers from an older Studio Calico 6×6 paper pad. I then used a few of the Basic Grey chipboard pieces including a spooky tree that I just love and an oval frame. I didn’t want to over do it. I wanted the photo and the background to be the main focus. I also added a few bats from the Crate Paper After Dark Glitter Foam Word Thickers.

For my tittle I used Black circle Basic Grey Letter Stickers which are from the B-side Collection. then I used some Glitter Thickers numbers to write out 2016. I used my black India Ink and a brush to color them black. I then scattered around a few Tim Holtz Tiny word stickers and one from a Teresa Collins letter sticker sheet.

As a finishing touch I trimmed off a half inch all around and matted my photo on a Crate Paper black and white patterned paper. I love how my background and layout turned out.

Sketch N Scrap Throwback Thursday

IMG_3658

Hello friends! This week I am hosting the Throwback Thursday Sketch Challenge over on the Sketch N Scrap Blog as we continue to celebrate our 100th Sketch with weekly challenges . I chose this sketch #63 by Kelly Holifield. It’s from August 2014.

Sketch

This is a great sketch! This sketch is from way before I joined the team so it was a lot of fun to be able to use it. I decided to scrap 3 pictures of me and my boys from a Disney Cruise we went on a few years ago, this was our very first cruise so it was an important one. I am almost done scrapping this trip so it was great to get a few more pictures on a page.

I decided to use papers from the Crate Paper DIY Shop and embellishments from the Simple Stories Say Cheese Collection. I did mat my photos and the majority of the patterned papers on black cardstock. The two collections went together beautifully.

Hello friends. This months Card Sketch is Sketch #69 by Kelly Holifield.

I love the this card sketch. I love how there’s room for a longer Sentiment. I decided to use paper from the Crate Paper Hello Love paper pad to create my layers. I backed all my layers with dark grey Recollections cardstock from Michaels. I also used a white doily from my stash.

For my sentiment I used a Hero Arts Stamp set # CL810 called Chalkboard Style Messages.

I stamped one part of the sentiment directly on the patterned paper and the other part on a piece of velum paper. I then finished it of with some black Basic Grey Enamel Dots in various sizes. This card was a lot of fun to put together.
