Hey everyone. Here's my take on Creative Embellishments' January challenge and Scrap Our Stash's January sketch and 3 challenge. The photo is of my daughter fooling around with two of her horses. She is definitely at her happiest when she can spend time with them. For Creative Embellishments' challenge, I was inspired by the colors and snow in the picture that can be found below. The twist was to use something circular so the sketch worked out perfectly!! I used some of CE's chipboard for the title. I used a couple of their hashtag words. I cut off the hashtags and stained the chipboard with distress stain. Once that was dry, I dabbed some white distress paint on the top of the letters and then sprinkled some distress glitter on them.
I also painted and sprinkled glitter on the wood veneer snowflakes from Studio Calico. The pattern paper and stickers used were from Simple Stories 'Snow Patrol'.
For the background I stamped snowflakes using white distress paint and Stampers Anonymous stamps. Before the paint was dry I sprinkled on some distress glitter as well. Very cool effect!!! I also splattered some paint around the layout.
Scrap Our Stash changed up their sketch challenge a bit. Along with the sketch, there are three lists and you must use at least one item from each list. I used American Crafts, avocado, blue, chipboard and cardinal red. I really like these challenges. They really do help you use up your stash. Be sure to check out the challenge blogs. Thanks for stopping by.
