Artbooking in August Blog Hop - Week #1




Are you ready to get creative??  Let over 35 talented CTMH consultants inspire you with their creativity this month.   Each Monday in August, these ladies will be posting artwork to their blogs and you can follow their blogs or set your alarm to make sure you do not miss a post!

Their challenge was to create 4 different projects using the Cricut Artbooking cartridge and any CTMH paper pack.  ( yes - we all have retired paper packs in out 'stuff' and this cartridge is perfect for using up paper!!)  Their mission was to design each of the following:

1. 2 page layout 
2. Card
3. Mini Book
4. Home decor or giftable item 

They were able to choose what to make and when to post it. AND if they wanted to add stamps to their designs, that was OK.  You will not want to miss any of their totally awesome and fantastic artwork!!

If you have been hoppin' with us, the you have come from Gina Brandsetter's blog  here and viewed her absolutely awesome layout!  She certainly 'amped' up the layout with all her extra cutting!


My design this week is from page 74 of the handbook.  I cut everything at the suggested 11" and copied the layout from the suggested example in the book.
I had to start somewhere and that is the easiest path for me in the beginning.

For an accent to my title I decided to try this 'ombre' look -  I checked out this video first and decided that my title was going to be slightly different.


SO I tweaked it slightly and left out the Creme Brulee.  If you haven't seen the video here is an opportunity to check it out...

            

Rather than use the chipboard letters, I cut out 3 copies of the title and then glued them together.  


Glued them together using 1512 Bonding memories Glue stick! (LOVE this glue!)


I then combined the Liquid Glass and the Autumn Terracotta re-inker for the bottom part of the tile.  The top part is Liquid Glass and Goldrush - hmm - it looks like Butterscotch! ( not using my treat cups!!!)



I really liked how it turned out.  There were a few bubbles but I rather liked that effect!


I am anxiously awaiting the cooler temperatures!  I am over the 90's hot and humid days so these photos definitely reminded me of cooler temps and a fun time!!

Now it is on to Terry's  FAB-u- lous Artbooking artwork here!   I am sure she will dazzle you with her creativity!

I loved the way you made your title & used the liquid glass with the re-inkers. I want to try this ..but haven't had time.

Love how you did that title!

centralNYscrapper said...

Love your layout. And you did exactly what I was thinking - cutting several layers of letters and stacking them rather than using chipboard letters. I'm so glad it works!

Katy said...

This layout is PERFECT!!! Makes me long for Fall, Pumpkins, the crisp air...especially since it's 108 in my part of Texas!!!

I'm not using my treat cups either!!! Love the idea of the little paint palate. Perfect for keeping waste at a minimum and makes for easy clean-up. Thanks for sharing.
