Welcome to the Pep Rally! This month's kit is called Carnival and is filled with goodies from the Amy Tangerine Rise and Shine Collection. This month was an "anything goes" challenge and I made a 12x12 layout with a single photo that is going to turn into a double page spread so stay tuned!
I started this layout by painting one of the kraft doilies in the kit with the yellow acrylic paint by Jillibean Soup ( This paint is called Happy Hues and has quite a bit of body to it for a little bottle of acrylic paint, I enjoyed working with it, and have plenty still so watch for it to make other appearances.) I then stared at all the papers included in this kit and decided that I knew I wanted pieces of them so I just started cutting out the labels and cut that chevron paper into a few arrows. Then I decided that this layout might span over two or more pages so I went ahead and pulled some kraft paper from my stash and got out some gesso and inspired by the cutfile and paper from the kit, I used some lids on my desk and painted around them for circles then freehand drew the spsokes. When they were dry I pulled out the blue gellyvroll pen that came in my Agenda kit from Clique Kits and drew some faux stitching lines on top of the wheels and spokes. The chipboard Thickers that came with the kit were kraft as well and to make them stand out, I pulled out my Faber Castell Big Brush Marker in black, swiped over the kraft letters, then added some detail with the same Sakura pen in the form of loose stripes. I LOVE how these turned out! When I had my title words ready, I matted my photo and started embellishing. I wish there were more options for buying washitape in strips like the samples that came in this kit, they'd work GREAT in a planner! I finished off my layout with a smattering of the Amy Tan Stickers included in the kit, I love the look and feel of these epoxy stickers! I like to do my journalling in a Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pen. You can get them in many different colors and widths and the ink is India Ink so it's gonna stay there for the long haul!
