The paper is from the Graphic 45 collection called "Couture."I love this paper so much that I have been hording it for a couple years because I didn't dare cut into it. But it's time to live a little and enjoy using it.
For this card I pulled out some paper I've had around for a few years. It's the DCWV Monsters and Robots paper. I was looking at the Your Next Stamp Color Challenge and the Monster's and Robots paper fit the color scheme perfectly.
My homemade light box was destroyed when I moved, so the lighting on this is not good at all. Sorry for that. The stamp is from Paper Smooches and the red ink is Hero Arts Shadow Ink.
I used the Viva La Verve sketch from this month for the design. If you're curious, the biggest circle has a 2" diameter mat and a 1 3/4" diameter circle for the image. The smaller circles have a 1 3/4" diameter mat and a 1 1/2" circle for the patterned paper.
I used color inspiration from My Favorite Things Color Challenge to create my latest journal page for October. I didn't have the MFT inks they specified but found some Stampin' Up colors that came pretty close.
I used stamps from the Distressed Diamond set from My Favorite Things to add diamonds around the page borders. The sentiment is from a MFT Die-namics set called "Four Point Frame"
I have been using a bullet journal technique to plan my days and keep track of tasks. My first pages were very practical and plain. After a few tries I started getting a bit more creative. These pictures show a little bit of the work in progress.
