This weekend just came and went so very fast, it's such a shame, I need more!! Last week I finished my 6th and 7th layout using my August Studio Calico kit. I'm running thin with it,I have only one or two full sheets left and I managed to use only a couple of things here and there from my stash. Now it's time to start adding in extras from my stash to finish out this kit. I am really hoping to get it all used up before my next one gets here in September.
Here is layout number 6, I used the wood grain cardstock as my background and some metallic rub on ink to give it some color and to show the lines. These metallic rub ons are from my stash, from back in 2004, I believe. Yeah way back, they look sort of like watercolors but they are more like a paste, very thin. I just used my finger to rub it all in and smear it back and for. It almost looks like a vivid chalk with a shimmer. I really wish I could find these some where again, I loved them back years ago.
I liked the silver letter stickers that came in the kit but I didn't have much to add that matched so I took some of the chip and stick banner and button pieces and painted them silver and then added silver stickles to the them that way I could accent around and pick up the silver glitter color. I think it worked well.
Here is a look at layout # 7....
