This month I was so excited to be working with the wonderful Wall Decor and More cartridge from Scrapbook Tons of versitile image on this cart! I had been wanting to scrap these pictures of my kids and was glad I waited to get this cart to do it. Here's how I created my LO.
I cut the cute image of the cup of paintbrushes at 4", twice. Once for the swirly cut and once for the background cut. Adhere them together.
For my title I cut one of the many phrases on the cartridge. I chose to cut "Create" at 2".
I wanted to add the cute scissor cut and decided it would dress up my title nicely by cutting it smaller at 1 3/4" and layering it on top of my title.
For my final embellishments I cut the flower images twice each for layering, at 2" and 1 3/4".
I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder to add texture to my flowers and added some Fruit Punch and Black Diamond Stickles to give them some glittery goodness.
I added some faux stitching to my title and some "paint" to the tips of my paintbrushes using the white Sakura gelly roll pen. To add some glitter and shine to my paintbrush container and scissors I used the Sakura Clear Star gelly roll pen.
I hope you have a creative day!
