Club CK had their annual Summer Camp this past week and there was all kinds of neat activities and challenges going on. Unfortunately, I did not finish the challenges in time to submit for the prizes but I finished them non the less! This layout I did is actually for two challenges ... I love it when I can multitask!

On of the challenges was to use spray inks or paint.  Spray Ink and me do not get along!  I'm not sure why?  It's not like I don't try but for some reason they don't like to co-operate.  It could be too that I am too much of a perfectionist for spray inks and I to get along.  Paint on the other hand is more controllable, hence why we get along!  I found that my embellishments were lost in all the patterned paper so I used the paint to create backdrop for them and hence draw more attention to them.

The second challenge was to use woodgrains on a layout.  I used them in 3 places!  Can you see them?  First one is the matting for my photos, the second is the title, and third is the woodgrain sticky back canvas ribbon.  Pretty sneaky eh! 

Supplies: Patterned Paper: GCD Studios - The Great Outdoors Collection; Alphabet Stickers: Jolees; Embellishments: GCD Studios - The Great Outdoors Chipboard Elements, Buttons, Twine, Studio Callico - Sticky Back Canvas, and Glass Beads; Inks: Colorbox Chalk Ink, Distress Crackle Paint; Sketch: Sketches for Scrapbooking volume 5; Tools: Typewriter.

Very neat! I've only tried mists a couple times but I'm not convinced that they're worth the money they cost. I'm cheap and it seems like I have to use a lot to achieve the look I want. I have used paint a few more times and I can say that it's more my friend. Great layout!
