QuiTe an ACcomPLiShMeNt

I haven't done a scrapbook challenge in ages.  When I saw this video by Celine Navarro from 2P's, I knew I had to do this page.  The idea is to make use of leftover Thickers for your title.  She also used lots of random letters as part of her background.  Since my title was long, I just did the title and used another piece of chipboard at the top for embellishment.

After placing the chipboard, you coat the entire surface with white gesso.  I had to do two coats to cover some of my bolder letters.  Then a combo of water and mists adds the color.  Here are the products I used.

Also, Celine used a stencil to create some feathers for embellishment.  Stars suited my theme more so I cut out some on the Cricut and traced them onto my layout with a Faber Castell Pitt black pen.  This is THE best black pen I've ever had.

I journaled around the stars and more on the bottom of the page.

The page is to celebrate accomplishing a goal for this year, creating my first on-line scrapbooking class.  Hopefully the class will be popular but however it goes, I want to recognize the accomplishment of creating the 12 layouts, filming and editing down to 2 1/2 hours of video, writing the PDF's, securing a delivery method for the materials, testing and promoting the class.

Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Halloween!
