TAWS post #6 - Happy Scrappy!

Hi Crafty Friends!

Thanks for coming by today to check out my TAWS project!  Today I've created a 12" x 12" layout using the set Bubbly for my main focal point.  I white heat embossed the words 'happy hello' onto good quality watercolor paper.  I then colored the letters with my Distress Markers and took my Wink of Stella brush to them pulling the color out of each letter and blending them together.  The glitter liquid inside of the Wink of Stella brush acts like water when taken to the Distress Ink.

I then masked the letters off and took my Heidi Swapp mist in Gold an took the sprayer out of the bottle and used the end that is actually in the bottle to splatter paint drips all over my paper.  It's hard to know when to stop with this process (for me anyways) so I tried to stop sooner rather than later reminding myself that I can always add more!

I did a bit of stitching and layering with some older die cuts I had lying around combined with a few bits and bobs from older Studio Calico kits.  I matted and added one of my favorite pics of my children from this past Fall and completed the layout with some fun wooden sequins.

Thanks for coming by today!!
