Should I go with xxPro or Valencia?

Have you heard the #selfie song by The Chainsmokers?  The girl talking reminds me so much of the girl in the song "Baby Got Back".   I don't take many selfies. But we happened to be outside on a nice, spring like day, and I was with the kids and we were having fun and the sun was setting, and it was just such a nice night, so I thought I would document myself enjoying it! Plus the quote "Not all who wander are lost", is one of my favorites so I have to include that on my page. I used the Scrapbook Circle April kit, "Bucket List" and a few of the add ons.

I started with a kraft background and went over it with some white gesso with a dry brush.  The Fancy Pants papers in the kit are SO bold and have great patterns, so I just used small bits of them to add a LOT of color.  I also layered some of the Elle's Studio die cuts (seen here) and ephemera from Fancy Pants as well.  Oh, and those little wood veneer triangles come in the kit....they are AWESOME!

Around the outside edge of my page, I used the Studio Calico stamp and stamped a border with dark grey ink.  Then I stitched the frame with teal thread and added some stitching to my die cuts, too.  I added some chipboard buttons and put black BRADS from my stash in them (I need to use those things more!)

There are some awesome things happening at Scrapbook Circle this month, so stay tuned there!


On another note, we are having a SKETCHATHON the entire month of April at the My Scraps & More forums.  All the sketches have been EXCLUSIVLEY designed by the DT, and they are awesome!  Stop by and check it out HERE:  My Scraps & More Forums.

Stay Scrappy My Friends!
