Cut outs and Paint

Happy Monday! I think I need another weekend day to recover from my weekend! The weather was beautiful and we spent most of the weekend outside, either at the pool or at the Dodger game. Good times!

I have another layout to show you using the June 3 Scrappy Boys Add-on kit.



I loved this shaped paper but wanted to do something different with it. I cut a square from the middle using my exacto knife and a ruler for a straight edge. I dug out a plain office transparency and then stamped on it using acrylic paint and bubble wrap. I then adhered it to the back, kinda like a window.


The flowers and flourishes were all cut on my Cricut. What do you think? I was just playing around and trying something fun and different. Sometimes you need to do that, ya know?? And don't worry, I snuck in a banner for my title!


I used my Walk in The Garden cartridge to cut all these flowers. I just cut varying shapes and layered them.


That's about it for me tonight! I am watching The Bachelorette...although i'm a bit embarrased to admit it. Ali (the Bachelorette) bugs me and i'm not even sure why i'm watching. Is that a sign of a reality TV addiction??? Don't answer that...hee hee!!

Thanks for stopping by!

You are just so good at this shabby things Mara. The bubble wrap painted part looks so cool, especially with all the other dots and circles in the LO. Sweet photo too.
