Shine On

Yesterday, I had my last reveal for Let's Get Sketchy.  Today I'm saying goodbye to Use It Tuesday with this selfie layout.

the quote is one that popped up in my IG feed, sorry I can't remember who posted it.
I think this is my favourite layout made for this Design Team.  The challenge is called Bring On The Sunshine.  I decided to go with a layout that featured a sunshine-y feel to it.  I used a ton of hoarded stash on this one.  Some call it hoarded, some call it forgotten, either way it was just hanging around, and now it's finally being put to good use.

All those lovely fabric hexagons we giving to me ages ago by my sweet friend Tara.  I inked them up with Tim Holtz distress, and some Prima Marketing chalk ink.  

Those yellow Sassafras alphabets are my absolute faves.  I've been hanging onto them for ages.  I just love that shade of yellow, and the size of these guys.  They were a perfect match, however, so I just had to use them on this layout too.  The cardstock stickers are also old Crate Paper stash.

The masking was created using my Silhouette Cameo and some Heidi Swapp Colour Shine in Mustard.  My failed attempt at using Modeling Paste to Mask in white beneath the spray ink is still somewhat visible, but it certainly doesn't look like I had intended.  I simply used too much.   And the flower was made by cutting up a coffee filter and spraying the strips with different shades of yellow, then adhering them all in layers to a Gluber, another longtime unused item.  And that center piece, now that is something that I truly have been legitimately been hoarding for a long, long time.  I can't even remember where I got that resin flower, I think it was a freebie from a crop or something.  It felt good to actually use it up, the flower is my favourite part of this layout.

So that's it for me.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Siobhan, Heather, and the rest of the girls, especially my girl Danielle.  They were all so welcoming when I came on board, it was an easy team to serve with them.  I am thankful to have had the opportunity and look forward to seeing where the team goes from here.  I wish them all the very best.

To link up with them, by creating your own "Sunny" project using mostly items from your stash, and to see the rest of the DT projects, just jump over here.

Thanks for stopping by today friends.  Only 4 more day of school left here. The countdown is on. Pin It
