I Like Watching The Puddles Gather Rain

The new month has certainly come around mighty quick!
It’s my turn to host the sketch challenge over on the Cocoa Daisy blog.
You can find the challenge here
Hope you find it inspiring.
But for now I just wanted to
a. show you the page I made


b. give you a closer look at some of the things that are on my page
See the background?


I made this using the plastic backing to the alphas that are in the “Aspen Grove” kit
I used texture paste and some Maya Road Mustard mist.
See the hexagon shapes?


I’ve stamped the Maya Road chipboard with the Cocoa Daisy hexagon stamp from April.
I’ve then heat embossed them in “Denim” zing, from American Crafts.
Then see the yellow hexagon


I’ve topped that one with the My Mind’s Eye washi tape, found in the Embellishment kit,
a We R Memory Keepers brad and some Doodlebug pearls
See the little jars on the Lily Bee paper?? LOVE
See the gorgeous greens and blues in the Cosmo Cricket paper?? LOVE LOVE LOVE


See the cool tree stamp,in the main kit, I’ve used it to create a banner


Right that’s it!
Hope you find something in amongst this, or the sketch, that inspires you!

Pin It Now!
