To all you people enjoying warm weather at the moment, lap it up while you can. It's soooo cold here now!
Anyway, cold weather is perfect for scrapping so I've been hibernating in the scrap room. I had a wonderfully interesting mix of products to use from Scrap Everything and I've had a lot of fun experimenting with them.
Here's what I came up with:
I received a pack of the Manor House Wood Elements - 'Going Places' which is available here. These are very cute wooden words in circles, kind of like flairs. One of them said 'Epic' so I grabbed a photo that I took last week of my husband when he collected a huge mushroom from our paddock. This was the most epic thing we had seen for a while! Last week, I left the wood elements raw on my layout so this week I decided to paint this one. I also outlined the word in black pen then highlighted it in a Zig Wink of Stella clear pen. It's available here.
What's a Wink of Stella pen I hear you ask. That's what I wondered too. It turns out to be a pen that adds a gorgeous shimmer to whatever it writes on. It comes in colours but this one is clear which means I can add a shimmer to anything without changing the colour of the element. I used the pen on the word 'Epic', my arrows, my chevrons and I added a few simple stars around the page.
Do you like the cool arrow? I made that using a Sizzix Tim Holtz chevron die! It's available here. You can do amazing things with this die! In it's most basic form it cuts out negative and positive chevrons. I chose to cut up the negative shape and made the arrow with it. I then cut a yellow paper with the die and filled in the arrow head with a yellow chevron. The black chevrons were also made with the die.
I outlined the black chevrons with the Wink of Stella pen and coloured the orange/yellow arrow with it.
I hope you get to do a bit of hibernating and scrapping this week.
