Red Helmet

      AAB (About A Boy) having fun for their Sept 1 Challenge and crossover with AAG (About A Girl) the challenge is to create a page with black white + one color. And here is my attempt, combined with Let's Get Sketchy September Week 2 Challenge.

Sketch by Ashley Horton

I am still behind using enamel dots so
 I used brads instead (need to use up my stash). 
And since I have no small white brad, I made my
own using ink and embossing powder.

use a piece of cardstock to hold the brads

ink them 

embossing powder

heating tool

Voila! Paints and nail polish 
will be great too (I think). I will try
and will let you the result.

Supplies :

  • cardstock - Authentique
  • patterned paper - Fancy Pants, Studio Calico and American Crafts
  • brads, twines - American Crafts
  • spray ink - Tattered Angels
  • chipboard - Heidi Swapp
  • alphas - Basic Grey
  • tab - Pinkpaislee
  • ink pad - Brilliance
  • embossing powder - Recollection


Hello everyone, please come and join me for my September reveal over at SSIB (ScrapStuffz Inspired By) . Please see below image for this month inspiration.

And here`s my attempt.

         I know, I know, my colors are totally off from the lovely Fall colors in the inspiration photo. But man, I totally fell in love with the bottles. Just like a jar full of goodness, I created a jar full of love from a lovely couple. I took tons of great photos from these two and I really want to squeeze all of them, mini prints are the best! Photos were taken from our recent trip to Whistler, British Columbia.
