I had my last free day to scrap today before we take Sierra to college Thursday morning and on Friday I head back to work. I have to work a few hours tomorrow and the rest of the day will be making sure Sierra has everything she needs.
Any how, I played along with the August challenge over at Creative Embellishments. I completed this layout in between house cleaning and canning tomatoes.
I have been working on using some of my stash and used an older Echo Park line along with a Creative Embellishment chipboard, stamp and flair and came up with this fun graduation page:
My intentions was to paint the chipboard at first, but as I got going on my page, it looked awesome as is! I cut my title using a Silhouette cut file and my Cameo. I added a torn piece of my favorite black and white stripe washi tape, a journal spot from Teresa Collins, some tangled thread and a Creative Embellishment Flair:
I fussy cut the hot air balloons, added some fake stitching using a marker to a few of the chipboard piece stars. I also added a heart sticker:
I created my background using the packaging technique along with mist. My colors were a little brighter than I wanted, so I tamed them down using a thin coat of Gesso. Finally I used black ink and a Creative Embellishment stamp. I fussy cut the clouds and popped one set up:
Some more fussy cut air balloons with some tangled thread:
The challenge was to use this photo as inspiration along with using something circular.
I used the colors yellow, pink and teal. I was also inspired by the hot air balloons and used a few on my layout. For circular items, I used flair, circle chipboard star piece and a circle stamp.
This was such a fun layout to create!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!
