Sketchabilities #135/The Studio Challenges/Scrap Our Stash- Word #24
Hey everyone. This is our border collie, Maggie. My daughter calls her Maggie Moo Moo Wiggle Bum. Moo Moo because she is black and white like a holstein cow, and Wiggle Bum because her little tail and bum never stop moving. I used 3 different challenges when creating this layout. The Studio Challenges challenge was to use your old stash. I had some pattern paper from Bobunny's 'Powder Mountain' line that was from 2012. The vellum I used had to be at least 8 years old. Scrap Our Stash's #24 word challenge was to include an item from your stash for each letter in the word 'stencil'. I used the following:
S : stitching, snowflakes
T : tag
E : embossing (The journal piece and some of the snowflakes are embossed)
N : numbers in the date
C : cup (I used a styrofoam cup to stamp the circles)
I : ink
L : letters
The snowflakes were cut using Spellbinder dies. I layered some and popped most of them up with foam squares. For the pleated borders, I used 1/2" strips of cardstock. I placed some adhesive where I wanted the border to be, pleated the cardstock, adhered it, and then stitched it down. After stamping the circles with a styrofoam cup, I flicked some splatters around the layout as well.
I had originally journalled directly onto the layout but had messed it up. It was difficult to write on the textured cardstock, so I cut out a label using a Spellbinders die, wrote on the nontextured side and covered my boo-boo with it. I rather like the look. The sketch I used was Sketchabilities #135. Be sure to check out the different blogs. Hope you liked it and thanks for stopping by.
