DCWV June layout sketch

This is probably the fastest I have ever scrapped a page.  I went to the show on Tuesday and created this layout on Thursday!  I was flipping through this great DCWV stack and I just loved this paper and I thought the dark picture from the show would look good against the yellow brick.

Here's the sketch:

Some close ups:

I played with my Art-C texture cream that I recently won from their FB page.  I pulled out some super old thick plastic stencils from the days when stencils were a primary tool.  I am sure I have thought to purge them a million times, now with the resurgence in popularity I am using them again!  They did make quite a raised music note because of the thickness so I popped up several letters in the title to give the page a variety of dimensions.

I also added some brads.  Are you aware that Michael's has discontinued brads?  I was looking for some recently and I ended up at Hobby Lobby where they had a third of the selection that they used to have!  I found what I needed since they were simple silver tiny ones.  I used on my recent Quick Quotes Father's Day cards.  If you like brads, get them where you can!

I did a lot of fussy cutting, the letters and banners are from sheets in the DCWV Treasures stack.  I did punch the circles which made that part easy.

Don't forget to play with DCWV

  1. Great layout, Alicia I really like the papers you used. No, I didn't know that Michael's was dc'ing brads but you know how stashes go, I have LOTS of brads.
