Time Again for Scrapping!

What a trip August has been, not a fun adventure! Between a terrible, never ending, sinus infection and back to school work load, this scrappy gal has been deprived of her scrap room! Hopefully, I am caught up enough at my day job that I don't have to bring it home for my "after work" time and hopefully, cross fingers-knock on wood, the infection is gone-gone!

So, I have a lot of blog reading to do and I can't wait; but, here is a layout I actually did complete in August and never posted. 

This was for the August challenge at Feed Your Craft forum, Feed Your Craft Link The challenge was to take inspiration from the image or color palette or both. I took inspiration from both and created a layout.

I loved the colors and all the arrows, so I immediately was drawn to these photos of my cats begging for popcorn. I thought the sharp color of the yellow popcorn, teal tupperware bowl, and my orange cat were just about perfect for the colors of this challenge.

I love outlining photos and for this layout, I used my Elmer's Yellow Paint Pen! 

I used Color Shine Black Mist to make sprinkles but it did not work well. The droplets never dried? I kept smearing the black everywhere and decided to cover most of the droplets with enamel dots. I don't know if it is just the humidity of my house or what, but I am now leery of using that mist again.

Supplies Used:
Echo Pack Capture Life Paper
Studio Calico Printshop 6x6 Paper
Amy Tangerine Plus One Paper, Flair, & Thickers
Vellum, enamel dots, & wood button of unknown manufacture
Heidi Swap Color Shine Mist-Black
Elmer's Paint Pen-Yellow

Thanks for stopping by! ~Tisha
