Exciting News & Nuts About Sketches

I have some more exciting news! I've joined Nuts About Sketches (NAS) Design Team! I'm so excited to be part of this team! I have nothing but pure love for Shawn's sketches. The are awesome to work with! Go check out the new team and all the great layouts! 

Here's my first sketch as a Design Team member...
I LOVED this sketch! It was so much fun to play with! I used the sketch exactly as it was and used a my Scraptastic Club Blackbird Oct. 2013 Kit . This kit has so much fun Halloween-y stuff! 
I used the sheet of paper that had words all over it as my base and then layered the spiderweb & bat one on top. I did a bit of ripping along the edges. I then used some Tim Holtz Distress Ink- Vintage Photo to ink up the edges. I love the look of inked edges. Don't you? I also used some Stickles to outline the my title label. I just wanted to draw a little attention it's way and what better way to do it than with a little glitter bling. ;)
I then accordioned my banner strip just to add a bit of texture and had some fun inking it up with a sponge so I could make sure to get those edges well. 
Another little "extra" that I did with my page was to bend down some corners. I have to admit that the first one was an accident but I decided to just go with it and loved the little "extra touch" it added. Love having the other side of the paper showing even if it is just a tiny bit. Have you ever had an oopsie on your page and then just incorporated it? 
And my favorite part are the little spiders! Aren't they cute!? They are wood veneers that I just added some ink directly on it to color it and left it to dry for a few minutes. I loved how well and easy everything came together. 

Now go over to NAS and check out the new design team and their awesome takes on the sketch HERE! :) Thanks for stopping by!
