this first sneak uses the main on the easel (love that name!) and just a bit of the add on drafting table. i think the SC exclusive papers are divine in this kit. divine.
this one uses the main as well as the still life add on. i did this really funky technique that didn't quite work, but i made the rest of the layout work around it. when i sent in the projects later on, i started freaking out, it's kind of weird. annie assured me it was funky and she loved it so send it in anyway. so i apologize in advance if my funkyness lowers your faith in me :) it's different. i love the layout though, the story it tells is only funny to our family, but that's who we scrap for right? i used the stamp from the en plein air add on. i love that stamp. i used a whole bunch of mist and ink on this page, but you can't tell from this sneak :)
and this is my therapeutic layout. i wrote and wrote and wrote and wrote. you're seeing most the the stuff going on in this sneak, the rest is writing. i cried while doing this page. a lot. and i tried some new things and loved how they worked out. and i dismembered a scrap product and was OK with it. this is a powerful layout for me. and it's really freaky how that sparkly button looks so pixelated in this picture. it really looks like that though, promise. i think this uses the main and still life. lots of paint and mist too. and i should have bought the martha stewart hydrangea punch, but i haven't yet made the plunge. i wished i had for this layout, then i realized i could CUT THEM OUT MYSELF! hello :) much funkier that way too.

and i have my first elementary infused layout to share with you. i helped out on the WCS blog this week, making a layout inspired by my current favorite illustrator, cate james. kim's been blogging all week about children's books, it's been really fun to see what others love too.
|rusty hinge distress ink and looky there paper available in the SC shop. the elementary line, of which i used: the alpha and label sticker sheets, atmosphere paper and mister huey, harper's rule and show your work papers are all available on line now or in a store near you. see twopeasinabucket.com or stopandscrap.com for online sources.|
finally, you want to know what supplies i used this month? not all of them ended up showing up on a layout, but i know all of them work because i have a lot of half finished layouts on my desk still. i had a hard time getting my thoughts out this month :) here's the list:
- spun sugar distress ink
- spiced marmalade distress ink
- tumbled glass distress ink
- worn lipstick distress ink
- faded jeans distress ink
- mustard seed distress ink
- pink grapefruit mist
- bubblegum mist
- silver plated mist
- painterly pink paint
- sky blue paint
- yellow pastel paint
- foam circles
- this to that solid runner adhesive
- large circle border punch
- and you're going to want to get super seal if you don't already own it. helps keep the glitter where it should be. TOTALLY worth it. i promise.
- i also used mister huey in white and warm calico, see links to two peas and stop and scrap below my charlie's angels layout.
