Haste Makes Waste

It has been one of "those" weeks.  You know where chaos is consuming and being productive seems impossible.  As a result, I found myself rushing to get a layout done for the design team at Lasting Memories.  My impatience caused imperfections on my layout; I smeared the paint splatters, crinkled my chipboard, and messed up the glossy accent on my sticker.  Sigh.  Though not the perfection I was aiming for, it is another page done and I am moving on!

The layout was completed to help reveal the new challenge over at Lasting Memories.  The theme for the month is Musical Montages and this week is focused on the 80's!  Love the 80's!  I was inspired to use the song title, "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns N Roses. 

Even though I was running late, I for some unknown reason decided to get creative with my gelatos.  I have had the urge to create an ombre page for some time.  The process was fun and easy to do.  Here is the link to the tutorial I followed.

I also used glossy accents on a sticker (round surfer dude) in an effort to mimic a Flair piece.   The more I play with Glossy Accents the more I like it!  

You have until the April 29th to join me in this challenge.

Materials Used: cardstock, Faber Castell Gelatos (cotton candy, metallic blueberry, and blueberry), Tim Holtz Distress Stain - broken china, Project Life card (fussy cut arrow), Scenic Route - Grafton Beach sticker, Glossy Accent, fun wire, brads, and Circuit's Ashlyns Alphabet/Block.
