December Scrappenings

just wanted to pop in and share a couple things.  first up these two layouts from my december jbs mercantile kits.  i absolutely adore this first layout.  the main kit has this vintage ballot (left) and these diecut word cards (especially nice if you don't have a diecutting machine).  i love all the neutrals in the kit.  they really foster creativity and let the photos take center stage.  i did a little splattering experimentation on them.  the first one was with acrylic paint mixed with water (green) and mist dropped from the mister straw (grey).  like the way it turned out, but was wanting some larger splatters.  thus the second layout. on that one the splatters were done with tim holtz distress ink droppers.  hmmm.  the splatters just stay in a blob and have to be dabbed off with a napkin.  not quite the look i was going for, but hey, it goes with the mad scientist look, right?  planning to get my scrap on this weekend as gallery updates are on the 10th (monday) and i haven't even started any of my december projects!  ack!

the other awesome thing i wanted to mention was that debbie hodge at get it scrapped! and masterful scrapbook design is giving away a free class every day through december 12th!  it's an awesome opportunity, especially if you've never taken an online class before and are curious about the different styles and formats.  hurry on over as today's free class offering is only good through midnight EST!
