Mojo Monday... Wish You Were Here

Hello all my bloggy, crafty friends! Today I'm posting my MOJO MONDAY Sketch #278 project for this week. This one was HARD! Okay, all sketches are hard for me, but that's why I'm trying my best to do as many of the MOJO MONDAY sketches this year - so I can get better at it.

Here is what the Mojo Monday Sketch #278 looks like:

Here is my creation just getting the design elements in place:

And here is my finished project:

  • Cricut Craft Room Basics:
    • Scallop Circle cut @ 5 1/2" and again at 1.778" for sentiment matting
    • Circle cut @ 5.014" for background and again at 1.528" for sentiment
    • Square cut @ 3.222" in purple for image matting and again @ 2.708 for image in white cardstock
  • Elegant Edges:
    • "Scallop 2" p. 24 cut @ 3.625 in dotted orange for background with scallop border
  • CTMH Art Philosophy:
    • "Banner 2" p. 29 three times @ 1 1/2" for banner tails in purple
    • Shop CTMH with Lucy
  • Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps:
    • "Lighthouses" stamp set used for image. Image was stamped twice to get rocks to go all the way across width and lighthouse was masked off.
    • Image colored with both BIC markers and Chalks
    • Background large white circle was also chalked in blue tones
    • **NEW** stamp set (in store this weekend for PRE-Order!) "Simply Said" used for sentiment
    • Sentiment inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink

Thanks for stopping by today! :) Janis
