'Awesome' by Nicolee Cable

Hi lovelies!
Another week is upon us! Aaaahhh
I'm trying to ignore the people
that are saying that Christmas is only so many weeks away,
I'm not quite sure what they're saying cause I'm ignoring them
(fingers in ears - blah blah blah blah - I can't hear you!!).

Anyway, in amongst the passing of time, I've scrapped my
youngest son.  This photo is a bit of a treasure because he just 
won't let me take photos of him - so this one he willingly posed for and I will
treasure it greatly.

I've been inspired by the colour palette in the latest 
Just Add Paper (JAP) kit 'Off the Wall'.
Whilst it has very clean colours (blue, green and orange), I decided to grunge it up a little!

So here's my take on this colour palette.

I've used stencils, stamps and watercolour shimmer dust to make my grungy background.

...then I messed the journal tabs up, to match...

...I painted the Creative Cuts brick panels with watercolour shimmer dust and then positioned
them vertically, added strips of washi tape and pulled apart (until it
was nice and tangled) the twine to lay across the brick panels...

...I then cut the painted (and dusted with glass glitter) cogs in half 
and randomly added them, along with the cutest
little cap and enamel dots...

...I then added other little embellishments from the JAP kit (the wooden chevrons)...

... and the 'awesome' title.  I played around with this a little, swiping it with ink
focusing heavier at the top and lighter at the bottom, then
writing on it in copper pen.  To finish it off I decided it 
needed some good old fashioned dimensional magic, 
kind of dripping down it...
 I think it looks kinda cool!

 Lastly, I finished it off with that cutest star button and the triangle enamel dot!

I hope you enjoyed this layout and feel inspired to pop on over 
to the store to grab yourself some of the amazing embellishments
that Amanda has in stock.  Whilst I haven't used any
in this layout, there are some incredibly beautiful flowers
new to the store, so you'll have to buy some before they're all gone!

See you next time and make sure you
enjoy some creative you-time when you can!
