I loved the kit this month, even though it wasn't traditional fall colors for a kit. The pages I made just jumped together for me.
Made using the ON THE EASEL main kit + STILL LIFE add-on. This page was made possible by the word "punch" and the shape "circle." heehee.
To make the circles at the bottom, I used 4 different circle punches.
I first punched using the smaller of the two punches I had chosen for each circle onto the October Afternoon newsprint paper. Then, turning the larger punch upside down, so the smaller circle hole was visible, I centered and punched, creating the window or frame. Then, I chose my patterned paper and punched it using the larger of the two punches and glued together. I repeated this process with all shapes and sizes of circle punches until I had achieved the mass array of circles I wanted.
For the decorative corners at the top of the page on my journaling block, I used my 3/4" circle punch to make those.
The instant I saw the Basic Grey doily paper, I knew I wanted to mist over it using Mister Huey's Calico Cream. So, without a plan in mind, I misted away. It took about 5 sprays to achieve this look, but don't you love how opaque it is on the colored cardstock?
The rest of the layout is pretty self-explanatory, I just needed a second to swoon over Mr. Huey again :)
This layout was made entirely from the DRAFTING TABLE add-on plus a couple sheets of cardstock.
And, last is my favorite layout this month. It's about our dogs and how they are constantly given treats. Not by me....I'm the meanie who wants them to be skinny. In addition to the STILL LIFE add-on, I used the following supplies:
- Antique Linen Distress Ink (for the edges of my papers)
- Stampin Up Ink (can't remember the color, but the pink of the birds) - Worn Lipstick Distress Ink would work perfectly, though.
- Green Embroidery Floss (for the button holes)
- Gothic Arches Edge Punch
- Foam Squares
- Vanilla Cardstock (you can never have too much)
