Welcome to the Practical Scrappers Scrap Your Stash Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Jennifer Haggerty's Blog! A whole bunch of us have gotten together to tackle our mounds and piles of scrap goodness that has been left to the wayside and is collecting dust as new products continually find their way to the front of our scrap desks!
I, personally, have been trying to scrap my stash more and trying NOT to buy as much (but is is SO hard!). So I try to incorporate a little something from my stash here and there.
But for today, I did an entire page devoted to using my older stash. It's not new news that I love working with Crate Paper products, so I used up some papers and embellishments from Acorn Ave, The Pier, and Close Knit.
I started by using a stencil and some gesso on the background. It was a little too white, so I tried wiping it off, and it left a lighter cover, and I was happy with that! Then I splattered some mists and water colors here and there.
The rest was just clustering of embellishments: stickers, chipboard, brads, labels.....all tucked here and there around my photo.
I spent an HOUR looking for the wagon chipboard piece that I KNEW I had seen somewhere before. And just FYI, if you ever need a wagon, there is one in the Crate Paper Close Knit die cuts (NOT the one on my page), and this chipboard one from Crate Paper Acorn Ave. (and that collection also has one printed on a card and a wood veneer one, too!).

Stay scrappy my friends!
