How I Did That.... by Sandi S.

Hi everyone..Sandi S here today to share a couple of "how to's" I used while creating with the beautiful ScrapThat! February Kit.
This kit included a beautiful Square doily. I misted the doily with Glimmer mist in shades of orange and pink. I then brought three of the corners towards the middle to make an envelope to tuck my picture into. I then added a bow to the middle.

 I thought it was long overdue to do another layout of my boy so I tried to make a masculine twist on this feminine kit.
I used the blues from one of the papers and cut a few chevron shapes, did some misting with a Prima Gear mask. 
I wanted this layout to have a grungy look so I did some crazy stitching, some stamping with bubble wrap and a number stamp. I also added some sewing thread and staples. The best thing about this type of layout is that there are no mistakes...if you do something you don't like, cover it up with some mists or even a blob of paint. The grungier the better!

That's it for me...Have a happy, scrappy weekend!
