Project Life- scrappin up your pages.

While I am loving working on my project life my style tends to be less traditional- shocker I know for those of you who know me. I love adding ink, metal & chipboard to my pages. I try to do a few simple faster pages- stick & go & than a nice scrapped up one. Here is one of those scrapped up ones.

I approach each area as it's own box of happiness and than when I have all the boxes put down I scrap it up. Adding the fun elements. I used a lot of want2scrap on these pages. Chipboard in gears & swirl, bling & their cool arrow stencil. Can you spot their brick stencils in use? 
I used the brick stencil tracing the bricks but in a straight line on top and bottom of my crab bowl. Painted it in red & added white lines with a gel marker. It is a super simple way to ink up your cards. I also used their arrow stencil with viva decor ferro on the side of the basketball card. Note the bling encircling the basketball- very sparkly. Using Want2scrap  gear chipboard I painted it with THoltz distress paint & added one of his clock parts. I love using stamps to embellish. Especially when I can't find a sticker etc. I usually have a stamp that will do the trick- hence the cute crab painted in & with some glitter to make him sparkly.
For the swirl chipboard I painted it & once the paint was dry stamped it to add that cool factor. Note the journal card below it. A light piece of scrapbook paper, spritzed with dylusions spray & the arrow stencil, stamped with a journal block & voila there is my cool journal card that adds that inky spot that I love to my project life! So get excited because I am starting a weekly project life post. Every Wednesday I will do weekly project life pages, ideas or cards to inspire you to make your project life unique like you!
