ABACC #1 My first project!!
Hello! It is week two of the bi-weekly Anything Goes challenge at ABACC (anything but a card challenge) and I am one of the featured designers this week! If you haven't already checked out the other ladies work, you really need to pop in! I am in awe of the talent coming from this group and feel just a tad bit intimidated! But only a little!!
I had a chipboard journal in my stash for over a year, from last year's Stampin' UP regional event as a matter of fact! I kept meaning to get it out and play with it, but never felt inspired until now. I inked the chipboard with very vanilla craft ink and then proceeded to add lots of different shades of brown from the neutrals collection. It also got a good dose of early espresso and crumb cake from the color spritzer. Nice and grungy!!
I used the more mustard and soft suede cardstock, the linen thread, and the mini clothespin which came in the chipboard project kit. I did not however choose to decorate it like the project page. I pulled out the daisy from Reason to smile, inked it up with crumb cake and then colored the center with pastels.
I'm planning on using this for a quotes, verses, thoughts, etc. journal... something to make me think and be a better person, which is why I chose the sentiment from Just Believe.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my first creation for ABACC and that you will make time to play along if you haven't already, and if you have, well...play again!!
