Layout for 123 Get Scrappy January challenge: Imagine

Hi and greeting from CHA!

What a great time I had in Anaheim! A full week of meeting friends and meeting new people, taking workshops and seminars, and looking at great new projects and product releases. Later this week you will hear more about the amazing times I had, so stay tuned!
(For CHA sneak peeks I suggest you visit my Instagram *here* :D!!)

In the meanwhile I want to show you a layout I made for *123 Get Scrappy! January challenge*. Here's the grid for you to play with:

On my layout I used the left vertical row; Clock - White Background - Rhinestones:

This layout was all about fussy cutting! There are lots of layered and clustered flowers, and as the patterned paper did not have too many leaf images I decided to die-cut them myself, using my *all-time favorite Bigz die*. The die-cut leaves are covered with Gold Crackle texture paste by Finnabair/Prima. I really like how they turned out!

The clocks are embossed on white paper using a Sizzix embossing folder 'Pocket Watches and Strampunk'. For highlighting the clocks I inked them with pink Distress. Same technique was used on the music notes.

Layout title 'Imagine' is die-cut from pink, white-washed cardstock I sanded with a sanding block. Love that Movers and Shapers die by Tim Holtz!

Under the photo there are several die-cut swirly shapes; *this die* was one I used.

I hope you get inspired and play along! Wishing you a nice weekend!
