I was a guest designer for ATML for May and was sent some fab Scenic Route products to work with. These included chipboard beach stickers so this dictated a beach LO. The papers have lots of circles and I was tempted to cut into them, but in the end decided to simply layer the papers. The Kraft paper background also has circles, which I've added to with a little doodling. I've had the bUcket and spade buttons for a long, long time, and since I'm on a mission to use my stash, I decided to add those too. I love the bobble trim and the lime green broderie anglais trim- both were bought in Madrid, and they add a cheery touch as well as a bit of texture and dimension.
I love this next LO. It too has layered paper blocks, but this time I also used some acrylic paints and sequin waste and masked off a circular area to add a bit more pattern. The title is a sizzlets alphabet-BLOCK PARTY. It's a very versatile font that can be used informally-like on this LO, or if kept straight can be more formal. The addition of white acrylic paint adds to the impact. The faux stitching is done with a Lakeland Ltd border stamp. I doodled a bit on this LO too.
Tomorrow I'm off the a craft fair here in Edinburgh-it's mainly stamps, but I fancy some new inks and some other bits and pieces.
