Creative Embellishments runs a photo inspirational challenge every month and the prize (randomly awarded) is a $50 gift certificate to the store. How great is that? Here's the inspiration photo for September. Check out the challenge here.
I took my inspiration from the alphabet in the photo and decided upon a back to school theme. I thought Graphic 45's ABC Primer papers would be perfect with these chippies from the Creative Embellishments school collection of chipboard. The challenge has a twist and that is to use paint on your layout, so I painted all the chipboard with Claudine Hellmuth acrylic paints and then used our Distressed Text stamp and black Stazon ink to stamp over the frame and title, just to tone down the bright yellow.
The Back to School title comes in a set of two different sizes
and I used the larger of the two.
I used our Alphabet frame which comes with the cute little crayons
in the bottom photo.
To get the look on my metal flower, I dabbed on some embossing ink,
and then added gold and turquoise embossing powders and heat embossed.
Thanks for visiting, have a wonderful day!
