Creative Scrappers Sketch #268

If you take a look at my online galleries, you may notice I tend to shy away from circles. The only time I incorporate them is when I'm working on a CS Sketch! (I guess my creative brain just likes rectangles LOL)

 I wanted to try something a bit different with this layout, so I grabbed a piece of white card stock and cut out the six circles with my Silhouette Cameo.  I used this as a stencil to create my circles using the Hero Arts Daubers (Love these!).

It still looked a bit plain, so I dug out my watercolors and got my fingers messy.  At first, I wasn't keen on the results and almost threw it in the trash.  However, I decided to wait until it dried before getting rid of it and I'm so happy I did! When it was wet it looked so gross and muddy.  I loved it once it dried!

A good "lesson learned" for me this week: no hasty decisions until my watercolors have dried completely :)

This layout was tons of fun as it includes: Letterpress (the Ampersand), hand cut star and triangles, watercolors, ink daubers, stencils and white mist, individual letter stamps and lots and lots of messy stitching!!!
