I am feeling pretty invigorated with all the new techniques I've been trying. I am really happy to see that templates are making a comeback (Which is great because I have about 30 that are collecting dust). With all the mediums out there, I am pretty excited to see what creations will come to life. Here is an example of one of my latest, template-inspired layouts "Life Moments":
I took the tree template (recently purchased at Scrapbooking At Shelley's...even though I had 30, I needed one more) and taped it down with painters tape. I then covered half of the template with butterscotch paint (ranger dabber). Once the paint dried, I then spritzed on tattered angels glimmer mist (chocolate covered cherries). I was super pleased with the results as it kind of came out looking like real bark. I entered this into the sketch challenge at TSR this week-end.
