Day 3 is well underway with Stylin’ for the Summer:
This was one of my favorite layouts from this series. As you can tell from the Teaser Post this add on kit was primarily themed graphic patters. I needed to break up some of the themes to create base cardstock. TIP: You ca create base layers by creating a new back ground. Here cut 3 inches of the bicycle cardstock, a strip of the xoxo cardstock in combination with the polka dots it looks great. IMHO :).
This kit came with rub-ons….Yuck. Well at first yuck. I have NEVER had good luck with rub-ons. They would get stuck to the acetate, half transfer off it was just a mess. I was completely WRONG when it came to this pack of Studio Calico Printshop rub-ons! These rub- on were like butta! TIP: I do not use the craft stick that comes with the rub-ons I use this, Basic Gray Rub-on Tool! It needs to be in your arsenal. I am no longer afraid to use rub-ons. In this layout the word rub-ons made great elements.
Also here I formed a visual triangle with wood embellishemnts. These veneers were odd to me as I could not figure out what I was going to do with wood flames! I inked the flames with vintage photo distress ink and they matched the photo perfectly.
Thanks for visiting and joining me in the Kill the Kit Series…more tomorrow.
