Hey friends. Can you believe I have two posts in one day!? This layout was inspired by two things. I recently joined The Secret Not Secret Kit Club and the owner Khristina posted a challenge to created a layout inspired by your favorite tv show. I paired that challenge with the November 1st sketch from Stuck?Sketches.
I have to say this was a really hard challenge for me because Supernatural isn’t a happy happy show, but I didn’t want to make a dark layout and I honestly don’t have anything I would consider dark.
I ended up using the So Rad collection by Simple Stories. I used pieces of the 12×12 collection, some of the 4×6 cards, some self adhesive brads, die cuts and enamel dots.
I think with what I picked wasn’t happy per se, but the colors brought some life to a darker theme show. I also added some things from my stash to complete the look I was going for. The washi tape was from an old Freckled Fawn kit, the twine is from My Mind’s Eye and I inked the edges of the paper with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.
One tip I have is if you want to add small journalling strips like I did is to use a xyron machine to add adhesive. I used the small x shaped one for these so it didn’t use up my nine inch machine cartridge. I have previously used a glue pen, but every layout I used them on the strips have fallen off, but I haven’t had any trouble with the xyron.
To finish it of I added some of the best quotes from the show. One from each of the main characters.
Okay, enough rambling for now – let me get back to creating. Until next time…stay crafty!
