Stuck on U Sketches Blog Hop Starts Today

Hi All!!


Stuck on U Sketches has a great blog that has started. It will be running throughout the month on various design styles.  Take part in the fun either by hopping, scrapping along, or just putting in your comments.  There are AWESOME prizes to be won and inspiration to be had.


You Came From Darcy's Blog 

The  project life theme is Metallic.  I was overwhelmed last week with visiting relatives, a recovering ill one, a cow that had a tire stuck on its face, a stray cat, the inspiration of learning how to make dots (See previous post for instructions), on top of my normal day to day activities.   I put my confusion to paper.  I love the gold products out there now.  Shimmer, shine, rich and textured. It just doesn't get any better. You can find small does of it (like the white and gold string I used to embellish below to big Gold letters and pages foiled over with it.   I have even found digital files that have a gold look to it.  It pops your page and makes everything have that extras something,, whether you go subtle or all out. I opted for subtle.  I only had a few pics that week and didn't want to over shadow them with big metallic cards. I just wanted to highlight the embellies.

My first inclination was to paint cards using metallic paints and pens, Then I came across a Worthers Caramel Candy wrapper behind my computer on my desk.  I snuck a little sweetness while scrapping last weekend.  those wrappers are so pretty, I thought....why not re-purpose it, so I did.  I stapled it onto an inspirational card stating it was right where it needed to be when in my album because I love those little caramel hard candies.  Why not let the world know. It also added soft dimension to the page which was what was really cool about it.   I also used my scratch off card that came in August's Studio Calico PL kit.  I left the gold on it, to see who scratches it first in life.  I also spattered gold sequins on cards throughout the spread.  The journal card with my nephew in the pool is outlined in Gold as well.  Touches of gold really make a page with mundane cards and embellies really pop. There is a lot of gold goodness on the market these days. Grab yourself some and post your project on the SOUS blog.  Who knows, you may be a winner!!  Check out our sponsors!
