Wonderful School Year Layout Featuring Art Philosophy Bear Piecings

Happy Tuesday crafty friends,
Well it has been a few days since my last post. Boy, sometimes life just throws you a bunch of curve balls and they are usually all at once. But praise God we get through them. So today’s project features some more of the wonderful Chalk It up Paper pack and chalk it up complements that I have been working with. So let’s get right to it.

Here’s a look at the entire layout. I used some kraft cardstock for the background and then used papers from the Chalk It Up Paper pack. I did also use some white cardstock for the white mats.

Here’s a closer look at the cute little Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
Bear paper piecing. He is created with cardstock, My Expression machine and the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge bundle. I used my water color pencils to add a little “rosy” to his cheeks. The glint in his eyes are from y Chalk Marker and then I used a fine tip black pen for his mouth and eyelashes. I Inked the edges of the pieces with my desert sand ink from the Basics Ink Pad set.

Here are a few more of the Chalk It Up Chipboard Complements that I used. You can also see that I used my Lagoon ink from my Adventure Ink Pad set to ink the edges of the mats.

Here’s a closer look at the chipboard elements from the Chalk It Up Complements set.  I added a little foam tape under the arrow to give it just a bit of dimension.

Of course it is national Stamping month so I had to include a bit of stamping. These two stamps are from the 30 years of happy set that you can get for FREE this month only. See details below. I used my Lagoon Ink Pad to stamp them and then used my circle punch to punch out the black circles and then used a smaller punch I had on hand to punch out the stamped images.
