I think I like....

this rainy weather, at least for a few days.  I''m not accomplishing much, but does it matter?!  I did finish this layout for palette #62 at The Color Room.  The whole palette was orange tones, which I thought might be hard to scrapbook, but turns out I had a quite a few things in my stash in the color orange.  I think that's my favorite thing about using palettes, you go through your stash and use old stuff!  Imagine that, actually using older product! Feels pretty good!  There's some old Basic Grey rub-ons, a circle diecut from Collage Press, stickers from BoBunny and this Prima background paper (which, as I was inking, realized that it is textured in the bottom corner-how come I didn't know this when I bought it?)  I embossed the lower corner with my Tim Holtz brick embossing folder.  Now, I don't think you can do this with any diecut machine (maybe you can, not sure) but with The Vagabond (Tim Holtz machine) it is possible.  For those of you who need a certain amount of reasons to buy something, here's another one to put on the list for purchasing this machine!  I just slipped my paper in between the bottom corner and wrapped the paper around my diecutting plate.  On the Vagabond, the edges where your die goes through have a hinged flap, and I think this helps your paper not get creased as much.  There is a slight crease, but it comes out after awhile.  Seems to me, that Tim Holtz talked about this on one of his tutorials.  The paper inside the circle is from one of Tim Holtz paper pads but I sprayed a texture spray on it called Goosebumps from Tsukineko which dries into an acrylic type resist.  I haven't tried it with masks yet, but it is very cool stuff.  The photo was from one of Urban Scrapbook's photowalks.  I think Sheri took this one for me, loved how it was taken on a slant.  We had a lot of fun doing these walks, maybe we should do another one this summer!
                  
Have a great weekend, everyone!

Wow Jan - what a gorgeous layout. You started with a great photo & turned it into the focal point of a spectacular layout. The white border around the photo really makes it pop off the page. The textured brick compliments the brick in the photo and I love how you have combined all the elements from the different companies.
