a FUN sketch!

Isn't this a fun sketch? I thought so when I went looking for a challenge any challenge on Serendipity Scrapbooks. Cause that's what our final blogging challenge was for JULY - to find any challenge and do it and upload to our blog. I love me a good sketch so naturally Iwent for the sketch forum! When I saw this one for some reason it jumped out at me and I thought BUBBLE WRAP! I have been wanting to to try inking bubble wrap for an interesting look on a layout and this looked like the perfect opportunity.

So I pulled out some pictures and used them to guide my color choices. I started with a piece of yellow Bazzill bling paper and inked up my bubble wrap with Wild Wasabi ink and laid it down on my cardstock - I used a Brayer to really go over it -w hich caused it to slide a bit - but still interesting look! I matted the top two pictures on Wasbi and Perfect Plum Cardstock. The bottom one I matted on wasabi and then on to a little file folder I made from Afternoon Tea Designer Paper which I then faux stitched on either side and used my corner rounder on. The tab is from Fancy Pants acrylic which I stamped on using STazon "fun file" wound up having to back it with bashful blue cardstock which was not what I originally intended but you know how that goes! I journaled on some Notebook Designer Paper and added paper clips with Bashful blue taffetta ribbon. Here is a close up of the little journaling tags (I guess they're tags). I stamped the title FUN in Perfect Plum using an OLD acrylic alpha set from Leaving Prints (yikes!) It needed more and so all along the edge of the bubble wraped area I used an assortment of buttons to line it. I think it's pretty cute! Thanks for looking! And if you still haven't go check out Serendipity Scrapbooks already! What are you waiting for?!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
