Good Times - 123 Challenge Blog - Guest Designer

Happy Monday everyone....I am thrilled to announce that I was chosen to be a Guest Designer at the 123 Challenge Blog for a layout that I created for their August Challenge.

The Challenge is to use the colour copper, the word "good" and stars. I had just taken some fun fall leaf pictures, so I used one "good" shot for my layout.

I used Carta Bella - A Perfect Autumn papers and AC cardstock as my base.

I did some masking with The Crafter's Workshop stencil and Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain in Rusty Hinge and Antiqued Bronze to capture the copper colour. I then used Tim Holtz Star stencil and medium and layered up the stars. Once it dried the medium took on the copper colour from behind. I  love this effect. The copper clips were from my stash and I attached them with Tim Holtz Tiny Tackers.

I added a few little star brads from my stash to add some dimension.

I layered up some little banners adding an October Afternoon Pillow Puff. The copper eyelets are from my "daughter-in-laws" stash. Thanks Ash!

The Good Times title finishes it off with Thickers.

A little strip of fall coloured washi tape from my stash.

Here is the Challenge board over at 123 Challenge Blog.

I would like to express my thanks to the ladies at 123 Challenge Blog for this opportunity!!!
