Took it Off the Rails with Pop & Colour

I really liked the colours and images along with the sketch over at Off the Rails Scrapbooking this month. Paired with some new learning... I am taking the Pop & Colours #3 course... this is what I created...







Supplies: cardstock (Canadian Scrapbooker Super Stock), gesso (Golden), stencil (The Crafter's Workshop), gelatos and black Stamper's Big Brush (Faber-Castell), Glimmer Mist and Glimmer Glaze (Tattered Angels), patterned paper (Webster's Pages), script print canvas (Pink Paislee), stamps (Unity Stamps), foam and fabric letters (American Crafts), ink, Tim Holtz Distress paint and gel medium (Ranger), pens (Zig and Sharpie), glass beads, trim and organza fabric (Dollarama)

I used many of the techniques taught by Riikka Kovasin in the first lesson. I used up scraps of die cuts which was great but they were mostly paper ones. Next time I would use all cardstock or chipboard ones for the base background process.






Check out this fabulously inspirational moodboard and sketch:

                                 

I was liking the texture of that first inspiration photo and then the beaded waistband in the second so I wanted to incorporate them both in the layout hence the fuzzy trim and the beads.







Definitely stretching my comfort zone with this one which is a good thing. My daughter and her friend think it is kickin' so that makes it worth it in of itself.

TTFN,
