I made a double page Picture My Life spread of my son's cross country race at school, and the Artistry cartridge provided some fun extra touches to the spread.
The 123 banner was a perfect addition to the page, which I backed with some washi tape.
This overlay coordinated beautifully with the star theme of this page and the Chalk It Up PML in general, and I also added a piece from the Chalk It Up Complements and some journalling on the cards.
The Artistry cut arrows make a fun border on this photo, and take your eye to the next page.
The right hand side of the page shows my son finishing the race.
This GO icon was also cut using Artistry, and can be made with our without a matching blank panel to put under it. I opted to let the photo show through, but you could back this with any colour or trim you wish.
I used the overlay from the other page to create a stencil for this piece, and sponged over the overlay using Lagoon ink. I love that overlays can be used like this, and Artistry has so many of them! I also added some more Chalk It Up Assortment stars. The PML card also had a few embellishments added from the Chalk It Up Complements and the Zoe Complements.
This journal card from the Chalk It Up PML didn't need much, but I did add a vellum piece from the new Zoe collection as I love my son's big happy smile!
I had so much fun using the Artistry cartridge to add some extra pizzazz to a PML layout- the possibilities with this cartridge are endless and would work well on any type of paper crafting project, as you will see when you go through the rest of the hop.
Now "Hop" on over to Maria's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this amazing cartridge.
