The inspiration for this month’s kit comes from the Colors, Story, Inspiration website:
|Style:||The first thing I did after seeing this was to print it out so I could take it to my scrap room to pull supplies. The second thing I did was to make a 3 x 4 pocket card out of that drawing. How sweet is that. It became my theme card.|
First, I looked through all my leftover cards from last month’s kit and moved some of them forward. Then I started through my card stash, I found only two 4 x 6 cards in the correct colors, so I cut several from patterned paper scraps.
Then it came time to add more 3 x 4 cards – I initially chose many more, and then had to scale back.
There, that looks like enough.
When it came time to fill my embellishment box, I took a careful look at the evidence:
* leaves in wood veneer, branches represented by wood buttons
* transportation accents means wood veneer arrows and geo-tag and globe flair
* music elements on washi tape and in silver charms
* hearts on charms and in vinyl
* metal charms, butterflies, sequins and brads
* scatter something – all those metal elements plus epoxy dots and gems
* string in the form of natural twine
* numbers on epoxy dots and cards
* mists (I will likely use my October Afternoon Art Box set of neutrals)
As to the watercolor and fence points of evidence, you’ll have to come back on October 4th to see what cards I forged.
|Stash:||Again this month I am using up various cards from Studio Calico (and related vendors), plus Elle’s Studio, October Afternoon and some free printables. Here are the details on the embellishments.|
