The Sampler Giveaway!

Holly has just put up a giveaway at The Crop Spot for some goodies. You have until August 15 to leave a comment. Plus if you tell a friend and post a link, you'll get an extra entry. Enter here!

Today I have another layout from this month's kit.

 I used a clear plastic sheet from Clear Scraps for the background and edged it with a gold Krylon pen. Some of the elements are placed on the backside of the sheet to give a little bit of depth such as the sun and tree. I've wanted to use Echo Park for a while now and well. . .this month was lucky enough to receive it in the kit.

I made the tree by punching small circles from the patterned patter (Pinwheels) and then I sprayed the back side with Glimmer Mist to make it appear a little more green vs. turquoise.  Next I bent the circles from the center to curl up the edges. No two circles were really alike and it gave real dimension to the piece. It's at the store right now but you may see it at the Scrapbook Expo this weekend.
