Life is Good - ScrapMuch? September 11th DT reveal (334/365)

Good morning!!! Hope you are all doing well today :) I am still adjusting to working full-time, this week was a little harder as my little one started daycare and the transition is not going as smoothly as possible but we will persevere!!!! ScrapMuch? has some exciting news. .. if you haven't heard already please check out:

On a more sombre note, today is September 11th, the anniversary of the twin towers terror attack, although I am a Canadian, this event effected all of us, so please take a moment to remember all those men and women who lost their life.

Today's layout was so fun to make!!!

Before I get into all the techniques and fun stuff on this layout, let me share this week's sketch:

See told you such a fun layout!!! I stayed pretty true to the sketch. To start I used three colours of tim holtz distress paint. While that was drying I cut the circle/doily and title with my silhouette. 

To create the title, I painted the words with tim holtz distress paint (worn lipstick), when that dried I heat embossed the butterflies with magenta stampendous emobssing powder. I then painted the vines/leaves with distress paint and once that dried I used mint green liquid pearls to "paint" the flowers, then waited for that to dry and then added a dot of zazz to the middle of the flower. I'm so happy with the title even though it took about 12 hours (with all the drying time)!! 

The papers are all Craft Smith's Tea Party. I used 6 brads on this layout (yup brads, how many of you have those hoarding in your stash??), they are a mixture of making memories and teresa collins daily stories. The flowers are prima. The sequins are avery elle - - on a side note i'm always asked what do i use to attach sequins to my page and i usually use glossy accents or heidi swapp scrappy glue. The tag i punched out and then inked with tim holtz distress pad (spun sugar).
