You + Me = Happy!

Hi Quick Quotes fans!

It's Cathy back with you today, sharing a layout created with November's Club Q! 

This is a gorgeous kit, filled with pretty patterned papers and intricate die cuts.  I created a layout featuring my daughter and her BFF.  Even though, they are 300 miles apart now, they still talk and text everyday continuing their amazing friendship.

I had fun playing with Quick Quotes Powder Puff Chalking Inks on this layout.  I needed to created a little more interest to my papers and I wondered if I could make the ink splatter the way I do with my mists and such!  I simply dipped an old paint brush in water, brushed it against the Coal Miner PowderPuff Chalk Ink and flicked it over the papers I was using!  It worked perfectly.


You can see the subtle results here.  A brush with bigger bristles would give you bigger splatters.  I will be using this trick over and over now!

Here is a close up showing all the details of the layout...I love the intricate die cuts in this kit, those gorgeous little flowers you see around the picture!

And here is the final result.  My daughter is anxious to hang this in her room which in full of purple's and light grays!  Pretty impressed with myself that I did something right in her eyes!  I am sure all of you mother's of teenage daughters can relate!
