September Reveal for Paper Mixing Bowl


We had a fun theme for this month: games! I knew exactly what I wanted to do for this, as we have a weekly game of Mexican Train dominos with some friends of ours and our eldest daughter joins in on the fun too!!


I have a had the yellow domino paper in my stash for ages...well I've only been scrapping just over a year, so I bought this paper about a year ago: Crate Paper Restoration!  When I saw the color for this month was yellow and games night...I knew that paper had to come out!

For my utensils I used game pieces, actual dominos I bought to alter for projects...these ones I colored with yellow and green alcohol inks to tie into the layout....I also stamped on the back of six of them to make the title...I'll explain how you can alter dominos with the alcohol ink and use Staz-on ink to embellish them in a post later this week....I have also made beautiful necklaces as gifts using this same technique! It isn't difficult and the results can be so stunning!

I did some black soot ink splatters...the domino and dots are definitely my repetitive shapes! I used kraft paper with some freehand doodles for my layering and the journalling is hidden on the white tag which you can use the domino glued to it to pull it out :). We've had this game night for years now and it is lovely to have our friends over for a bit of fun each week! So fun to create a layout about it!!

We'd love to have you come join us over at the Paper Mixing Bowl for this month's recipe!!
