GCD Studios Scrapbook.com Challenge

This month over at Scrapbook.com I posted a GCD Studios challenge! Check it out here and be sure to give it a go for a chance to win some awesome goodies! Sometimes I tend to get into a scrappy funk and need a challenge to get me to do something new...this challenge is just for you if you find yourself in the same place from time to time.

I challenged myself to incorporate some sort of mixed media (paint, ink, or other fun technique) into my layout. I tend to keep things very neat and clean. I rarely add any kind of ink, paint or distressing. Not for this layout!

I dug into my paint, spray ink, and the new GCD Studios Tool and chipboard! I still kept true to my typical layout style but I "dressed up" my title by using using the tool to stamp little snowflakes on the G. I then very lightly painted it with white paint. After it was dried I sprayed it with a little spray ink and then lightly wiped it off. I love how the ink seeped into the embossed images.

So if your feeling a little bit "artsy" and need a jump start before your next project. Pull out some paint or other mixed media product and scrap away!
