Arty Chics

Hi there. It's Heather back with you today with my second layout using the fabulous November "Rustic Goodness" kit.

One of the items in this kit is a Crafter's Workshop stencil that has the word "Art" on it. I was thinking of what words I could create with these letters - and then it hit me. Of course! Here's what I made (*winks):

Honestly, the Arty Chic ladies are the best! We regularly chat online, sharing all sorts of things. Sometimes the conversations are so funny and other times they're helpful or sometimes are even just a place to provide a shoulder to lean on. Even though some of us have never met in real life, we have an amazing online friendship.

But back to the layout! There are so many other words you can make with this stencil, you're not just limited to the word "Art". By using sections of some of the letters you could create Party, Heart (as in 'I Heart You'), Star, Pray, Hair, Sharp and so on. Think outside the square!

I coloured the Media Crackle Paste with paint and used this through the stencil to create the main word. I love how easy it is to use this Crakle Paste! The word 'chics' is made using old chipbord letters which I jazzed up with a bit of stamping with that wonderful triangles stamp.

The lines of colour are a mix of sprays which I sprayed under the paper then let them dribble down. For my journalling I coloured the letters with Textas or paints to achieve the colours I wanted. It's so easy to do this with many light coloured letter stickers.

I printed the photos on my home printer. Not all printers give this option but you could just print your photos small and place them in a strip like mine.

Here is some more info on the kits. Kits are still $39 plus postage and are great value for money as they're like doing three classes in your own home. 
They are self-paced class classes that you can complete on your own or with a group of friends

Each month there will be LOADS of added inspiration with one of the designers creating 3 layouts of their own style with the kit while the other two ladies will be sharing some added techniques using the product in the kit, so you can learn more and more!

Each premier kit:
  • comes with video AND instructions to complete the three layouts
  • features many techniques with product to be used well after the life of the kit.  (With all of our kits you will have plenty of product and knowledge to add to future projects)
  • comes with photos of each project including close up detailed pictures
  • comes with all the product needed to complete the projects with a list of additional basic items used such as ink/ paints/gesso/texture paste and colour sprays you might need out of your supplies.
The kits focus on how to use various products teamed up with some stunning papers to compliment them. There are always less- or non-consumable products in our kits to help you complete some beautiful projects and learn many techniques and different ways of using the products.

Kits are $39 + postage and come out monthly
