The Studio Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge

Sunday, August 31, 2014

Happy Sunday, everyone!  I trust you're enjoying your weekends.  It's a holiday weekend here in the U.S., so I'm super excited to get to see my little sister and her family later tonight, but before that, I had to stop in here to share our final August challenge from The Studio.  Here's my take.
I started this page by smudging Patina and Pink Bubblegum Glimmer Mists onto the black, stripe, patterned, paper, base page.  I then rubbed Dusty Concord Distress Ink, through a star stencil, strategically, throughout the page and stamped it, in Jet Black ink, with both the music notes...
and "a day in the life APR 27, 2013" date.
A number of color-coordinating, patterned papers were then secured in place with black-threaded, straight and zig-zag, machine stitches.  In between those papers, I tucked a paper doily and white tag, laced with white string, tied in a bow.  The tag anchors a couple of cardstock stickers and was used to journal, Never stop being you, b/c you is so beautiful in every way... singing and dancing @ the KC Zoo.
The doily grounds both a "delight in today" phrase sticker...
and dancer, cut, from Pool Party cardstock, with my Cameo and, in turn, backs the "make YOUR OWN MUSIC" title.  The "make" part of my title was cut, from Whisper White cardstock, with my Cameo and glittered.  The remainder of the title was created from both aqua, glitter letters and hot pink, foam, glitter Thickers.
A "LIFE IS A JOURNEY NOT A DESTINATION" ticket, backed by a tangle of black string and topped with both a dimensional, bird sticker and bit of geotag flair, turns our attention to the final details of the design.
An "ADVENTURE" pennant rounds out the top left corner, and a small handful of pink brads complete the look.
Further inspiration for this page came from Sassy Scrappers' August Mood Board...
and Let's Capture Our Memories' Sketch #85.
Here's your Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge to get you off and running in the right direction.  I took lots of inspiration from the entire grid but ended up making my tic-tac-toe across the bottom (sparkly letters, doily, and three types of alphas).
This month's winner will receive a package of chippies from A2Z Scraplets.  A2Z Scraplets manufactures laser-cut chipboard products, in Australia, for the scrapbooking world.  They have an extensive range with 1000's of products to choose from or can cut designs or titles to suit your needs.  Their products can be painted, inked, embossed, glittered, etc... The possibilities are endless!  They are WHOLESALE ONLY.  Head over to their website to see a great range of products and/or be inspired by a visit to their blog.
