What a Hoot: On the Page!

It’s time for more fun with new products from the CTMH 2014- 2015 Annual Inspirations Idea Book and the August Stamp of the Month ‘What a Hoot’.  Remember, the August SotM is available only in August for $24 or for $5 with any purchase of $75 or over.

This simple double-page layout is based on the blueprint on page 96 of the CTMH Magic Scrapbook Program and features the following products:

White Daisy Cardstock
Wanderful Polka-Dot B&T Paper (NEW)
Seaside Woodgrain B&T Paper (NEW)
Lagoon Cardstock
Flaxen Cardstock (NEW)
Handwritten Print Alphabet Stamp Set (NEW)
Sequins- Gold Assortment (NEW)
Flaxen Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad (NEW)
Archival Black Exclusive Inks
Marvy Uchida LePen Journalling Pen

ShinHan Touch Twin Markers (NEW)
Gold Shimmer Trim (NEW)
3L E-Z Dots Adhesive (NEW)
Thin 3D Foam Tape (NEW)

I decided to "dress-up" the title 'Australia Zoo'.  I stamped the title in Flaxen Ink using my absolute favourite new alphabet stamp set 'Handwritten Print' and then added some bling by adding a few Gold Sequins to some of the letters.  This highlights the title while creating texture and multiple focal points.  

I coloured this darling owl from the August Stamp of the Month using my new ShinHan Touch Twin Markers.  The colours I have used here are Clay, Pastel Green, Sap Green and Peacock Green.  I stamped the image in Archival Black Ink and waited for it to dry before colouring the image.  The chisel end of the Peacock Green Marker was useful for colouring the large area of the owl's stomach area quickly and easily as the chisel end adds a lot of colour with one stroke of the pen.

Thanks for dropping by.  Keep visiting my Blog during the month of August for ideas and inspiration for using the lovely new goodies from the Annual Inspirations Idea Book.

Happy crafting,
Denise :)
