Go Your Own Way

    Go Your Own Way
By Patti Sylvia        

This is my first post as a design team member for  My first assignment was to create a layout and I can't think of any better subject than my 2 year old grandson, Cash.  I think this layout perfectly captures his personality.

I will include links to the supplies of this layout at the end of this post.

I began by choosing my papers from the Memories Captured Collection selecting the Shining Star, Memories and Family album papers.  I also used some of the tape stickers from the collection.

I then randomnly stamped my background paper using the Chevron and Edges stamps by Kaisercraft  in Coffee Archival ink by Ranger.

I then moved on to the main cluster of embellishments by using a sprocket chipboard piece by Paper Accents that I layered with some diecut pieces using the Tim Holtz Bigz Gears die that I used Gilders paste  in copper and german silver then added some Distress Embossing powder in Vintage Photo to give the gears a realistic metal look.



To complete the cluster I added a label sticker from the Memories Captured collection, some chipboard hearts using the Sizzix movers and shapers mini hearts by Tim Holtz and topped it off with some Studio Calico arrow wood veneers.


I repeated the same techniques in my second cluster for continuity and to keep your eye moving across the page.

 I then scattering some enamel dots from the Teresa Collins Family Stories collection that matched perfectly. I love being able to pair collections together.


I completed the look by dipping a fan brush in some chocolate Dylusions mists and tapping the handle to create the spatters.

Thank you for looking  ~Patti~
