1st Layout for the Embellishment Comp :D

Here's my first layout for Scrap N Craft with T's Embellishment Competition. The criteria for the layout is you must use paint, doodling, use 3 different patterned papers and also interesting ways to journal and title. You also had to make your own embellishment with its own criteria which was to include, paint, stitching and 3 colours. I hope you like my first take on this weeks challenge, really was alot of fun.
My interesting way of doing the title was I went into word..found the font I wanted to use..I then printed it on baking paper, glimmermisted the font and washed it over the font to take the edge of the ink. Lastly I coloured it in with water colours.
My handmade embellishment was the cupcake. I used gesso as the icing then painted it and added beads into it with a button and cherry on top. I also stitched on the wrapper as well as doodled. Does it look good enough to eat?

Well that's all the scrappyness I have to show you for today. Next time I will show you one of my latest ATC's I've created for a swap..Wild Wild West was the theme :D I'm also in the process of doing an apron themed ATC swap too, will soon be able to show that one as well.

I'm really in the scrappin mood lately due to the fact I have awesome scrappy friends and also on Saturday a few of the girlies and I headed to the Brissie scrap expo. Was so great to catch up with alot of online friends, shop the day away and be inspired. Thanks for a great day girls..luv yas all!! Anyhoos I've gotta run..the kidlets, Jamie and I are off for coffee and babychino's :D Have a great day gorgeous people!! xxx luv Belynda-Lee AKA Lyn.
