Scrapbook Layout

Hey everyone! It's Kayla here to share another one of my layouts with you. This layout has a lot of my favorites: brown, distressing, sewing and a large scalloped circle. I'm VERY addicted to these large Scallop Circles, they are so much fun!

Here I used the Scallop Circle in Java I distressed the edges some and really like how it came out.

Now for the flower. This was the Flower #06 - Small in Java and the lighter brown color that slips my mind at the moment. I inked the edges using my Colorbox Chalk Eye Dark Brown ink pad. I then covered them with Ranger Crackle Accents. Once they were completely dry I went over the top of them with a Creamy Brown Colorbox Chalk ink to take the shine away from the crackle medium. The crackle medium made them curl up a bit, which was perfect!

I tried a 'new to me' fun technique of writing on the photo using my UniBall Signo pen. I also did lots of sewing.

Other items used: Crate Paper and Die Cuts, American Crafts Thickers and unknown brad and scraps of paper.
Thats it for me today! I hope you were inspired to get crafting! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you check back soon!
