Technique Overload

Sometimes I have the urge to use every technique I've ever seen all on one layout!!  My "Walk This Way" lo could fall into that category.  :)  I used the Cuttlebug to emboss my white paper strips and then inked over them with the brown stamp pad.  But I couldn't stop there...no I wanted "street signs" that looked like epoxy stickers and didn't have any of my own, so another technique had to be implemented.  I printed a few clipart images of street signs I found on the internet and used Diamond Glaze over the top of them.  Once it dries, it leaves a clear coating and gives your elements a "puffy" sticker feel.  And finally, one of the challenges on Club Ck this week (by Erika H) was to dress up a plain journaling spot.  I typed my journaling on the yellow paper and then used the (embossed) arrow, my title, and a small circular tag to dress it up.  So, without further ado, here is the masterpiece created using all of these techniques:

  1. I recently did the same thing with a clip art image I found on a free site. It was an adorable little smurf guy parachuting and worked perfectly for my LO of my grandsons using plastic bags for parachutes. Also love the way you embossed your strips on the CB. Love my CB. I am going now to become a follower of your blog.
