Throwing my hat in the ring!

'Blue Skies & Rainbows'

This is my app for DT at CMK. The assignment is to dig through your stash and create a kit and then use the kit items and make (at LEAST ) 2 layouts. This was ALOT of fun and something that I plan to do again! :)

My kit consists of:
3 Prism Cardstock (2 x black, 1 x white)
1 Die Cut paper (Jenni Bowlin)
1 Fabric paper (Love Elsie)
6 pattern papers (Heidi Swapp, Cosmo Cricket, Creative Cafe, Sassafras Lass)
1 sheet stickers (Creative Cafe)
1 sheet 'cut your own accents' (Rusty Pickle)
1 sheet die cuts/1 sheet strip tease (Cosmo Cricket)
1 sheet rubons (EK Success)
1 trancparency (Fancy Pants)
1 set alphas (Thickers)
Assorted Buttons, ribbons, ric rak
Chipboard (Maya Road)
Ticket strips from Local Amusement area

This LO is as fun as the 'OUTAKE' picture :) I added pop dots to the embellies at the bottom to make the LO POP a bit more. I chose to NOT mat the white alphas and just doodle a bit around the exterior. I really like the white on white and think this technique is really striking IRL.

For this LO, I double matted the alphas to make them more 'cosmic' looking and then added black cardstock to make the colors pop. These are also layered on top of each other for added interest.

For this LO, I traced my die cut paper in the kit and hand cut and used the NEGATIVE of the cardstock and layered it onto this yummy sass fras paper. Although the red paper is not a Christmas pattern, I felt it added an awesome contrast to the green.

This is a LO I did of 2 friends cars that bunked in my yard for a weekend. One is a Beamer and the other a Smart car. It got alot of looks as people passed by. Since it is an odd picture, I tried to mirror that by using the odd colors of paper that were left over. I pretty happy with how this kit turned out.
Wish me luck!
