Pumpkin Patch Layout

Hello Everybody!

Over at Let's Scrap they are doing a month of scrappy challenges for National Scrapbook Day (month).  I know that there are only 2 days left in May-but you gotta start sometime!  ;)

The Challenge I did was Mixed Media Madness where you had to use 3 techniques of Mixed Media.  FUN!!  Count me in! :)


Here is a quick side story.  A friend of mine was passing her Stamping Up inks along.  She does more quilting and not as much stamping stuff.  As she passed them along to me!  It is quite a collection.  She had all of the re-inkers too!  So I took a few drops of Orange and water in a spray bottle and sprayed the background with a stencil from Dylusional.  


For my 2nd mixed media trick I took that same re-inker and put 2 drops into my little pile of light modeling paste.  It was way to bright so I add some more paste.  I used a Crafters Workshop stencil with the paste.  (Don't worry I didn't get rid of the bright orange paste I had left over.  Hopefully that will be apart of a project in the very near future!)


Then here I used Old Olive and stamped with a Tim Holtz little circle stamp and used a stencil with the ink (bubble wrap).  Around the edges I used chocolate chip Stampin' Up.  I love this brown color and the green color.  I feel like I am living In Color now.  :)

These little dots are Candi's.  At the Scrapbook Expo I bought the glue squares for them-the ones especially made for Candis.  It was so easy to adhere them-what a relief!


The half circle, hexagon border, and journal ticket are all die cuts by Tim Holtz.  I embossed and darkened the raised areas on the hexagon cutouts from the die cut.

Over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge they are doing Anything Goes so I would like to submit this page to that challenge.  

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...stay inky and use those Candi's! ;)
