Up Up & Away - CMS #13

It's October 1st, the leaves are changing, the kids are back in the swing of things... Fall is right around the corner. Fall is the best. I LOVE IT!

Another thing I love? Color Me Scrappy!

The colors this time are down right fabulous. Maybe it's the inspiration picture that really pull them together? Either way, that pale yellow and deep blue are so striking! I'm not sure if anyone else feels the same way?

Here are the colors...

And my take...

I actually used a sketch from Scrap Friends on this one, but I missed the deadline on that one, but here is the sketch anyway...

A closer look at the title.  These are painted chipboard, but funny thing is, you can't tell that they are even painted.  I got out my paint, took a stroke, and did a double take at my brush to make sure I actually dipped into the paint.

I was looking for a different way to make a "stitching" without dragging out my sewing machine.  Well, actually, my sewing machine is always out but maybe I was just too lazy to get out of my seat at that particular moment.  So, I grabbed more paint.  This was created by putting some dots of paint on the BG by using the handle end of the paint brush.  And then, when it is still wet, drag the same end of the brush through the paint.

I've been working on my layering lately.  I think it's getting better.  What do you think?  I've struggled with it, but I've come to the realization that I just have to stop over-thinking it.  You just have to go with it.
