CS #101 - Lots of NEW techniques

Hey, all! The newest sketch (#101) is up at Creative Scrappers today. I loved the sketch, so I decided to instantly play along. Here is what I came up with:

Some techniques I used here:

*I painted around the edges of my picture to give it a fun effect.

*I traced circles and cut them out of the cardstock. I then distressed the edges of the cutouts and taped random pieces of magazine paper to the back of the cardstock. It was a new technique I decided to try and I actually had a lot of fun with it (plus it was easy!) so you may be seeing that again on some of my other projects in the near future. :)

*I painted around the edges of a glimmer mist cap in black paint and then I randomly stamped it onto the cardstock to get all those fun little circles.

I am also very happy that I finally got to use that piece of green burlap that I have had sitting around forever! I am sure you guys all have stuff like that too - you have saved a random piece of something because you know you can use it on a project later. Instead, it just lays there looking at you and teasing you because it doesn't work with anything that you are doing. Hmm...maybe I'm being a bit too dramatic, but I think you get the point. :)

Happy Sunday!
