Today is Monday and it's also the last Monday of the month, so I will be sharing my last layout for this month using the March Artful Delight Kit. I decided to take a little bit of a different approach with this layout and use a muted color scheme on solid Black cardstock. I mixed in a few extras, not included in the Kit...vellum, Wood Veneers, Flair Button, Color Shine, and a doily.
Vellum was a pretty big trend a few years back and then it kind of seemed to go away. It has been making a comeback and I was so excited to get a whole package of the 8.5x11 sheets. I thought some embossed Vellum circles would add a nice touch to the look of this layout. And if you have been on the wood veneer bandwagon, you know, that the Wood Veneer Stars from Studio Calico are a precious commodity. I have managed to build up a sizable stash, so I decided to let go of my hoarding tendencies and pull some out of the box for this page. I used Heidi Swapp Tinsel Color Shine to spray over the Stars. And I saw the most fun technique on Studio Calico's Instagram the other day...using the Stars to stamp! How fun is that??!! I knew I had to give it a try. I added some Black Stampin' Up ink to the Stars and just randomly stamped them on my page. Not all of them were perfectly stamped, but hey, perfectionism is a lost cause in Scrapbooking! :) I really liked playing around with this technique, and on top of that I have a few pre-misted wood veneer stars for whenever I need them for a page.
