Monday October Imaginisce Challenge


Happy Monday!
Did you have a great weekend?  We sure did but boy, were we busy!  Errands, grocery store, Lacrosse game, King's Island amusement park, baking muffins, baking cookies, cooking for the week ahead, tennis practice (Jack has started and I am a volunteer assistant coach) and finally getting things ready for the week ahead!  Wow, I can't even believe all the things we did.  Plus I got in a bit of scrappin' time and got in a layout and card!    Wow, I am tired!!

Imaginisce is having their monthly challenge and this month's challenge was a color challenge.  I am using up my stash of paper and I  had some of the Imaginisce paper I love Fall from last year.  So I knew I had to enter!   Here is the color palette.

Here is my take on the color challenge.  I really have been wanting to try new thing in my paper crafting.  Do you ever get restless?  I know I am , and I have been exploring some new techniques and styles, And I really love the results here.  I first misted my paper with some Mister Huey in some orange, brown, and teal colors.  I then dipped a cap into some ink and randomly placed some circles on my page to create my own background paper.  I then placed my paper down and then added that beautiful grosgrain striped ribbon from  The Stringery.  I then took my sewing machine and sewed 2 large circles to go with the theme of the circles.  I then added my photos and then it was time to embellish.  I added some buttons and leaf die cuts from the Imaginisce collection.  I tied some burlap twine from The Stringery in my buttons as well.  I added some die cut pumpkins and chipboard pumpkins.  Finally I added some of the new tags from Elle's Studio.  I stamped pumpkins using an older set from Ali Edwards on my tags.  I was really happy with the end result! It is a different look for me but I have to say I really had a great time creating this layout!  I think I like getting messy! LOL!!
