oh snap!

Welcome to October! I'm still not quite sure where September went, but that seems to happen to me every month. Anyways, today I have a layout to share with you that I made using the Everyday Eclectic line from Echo Park. I absolutely LOVE this line!! I received it quite awhile ago but I just finally got a chance to work with it this past weekend. I made this layout and 2 cards already and I can't wait to do more!

I have had this photo of my daughter and I from a wedding a few years ago on my desk for a long time waiting to be scrapped, when this line came along I knew it was perfect.

I didn't have any black mist so I made my own with some black acrylic paint I had laying around. It was really easy. I simply put a dollop of black paint on a tray and added water until I got the consistency I wanted. I used a small paintbrush to flick the black onto the paper to make spatters.

here are a few close ups of the details on the page...

I stamped the date once at full ink strength and then stamped it off a few more times until the ink wore off. I like the look, it adds to the shabby/messy vibe that the layout has going on.

and here is a shot that shows the layering...
