Fantastic Fun: San Antonio

It's time for Paper Issues August's Add it Up Challenge hosted by Michelle.  It is all about adding more and more until you hit the point totals.  This month the target is 110-120.  Here's my take using Amy Tangerine's Hustle and Heart collection paired with the brush stroke PI cut file. I got to a total of 115 points for this project. See the details on the PI blog.

Here's a closer look:
Do you need these little bitty bows?!  Yes, yes you do!  Get these adorable little babies in the store now!  I added splats of Shimmerz Inklingz in the "paint brush stroke strips".

 I mixed foam Thicker alphas from On a Whim and Hustle + Heart.  I love the fun brush script font that make them interchangeable! I added hand stitching on the photo mats.  It easily adds more texture and dimension.

I love the striped water color paper "The Bright Side" in Hustle + Heart.  I first cut it apart in strips.  I measured the width of the stripe and enlarged the Brush Stroke background cut file to fit this paper.  Simply ungroup the cut file and enlarge the brush strokes you want to use.  Check out those Hustle + Heart puffy hearts.  They are perfect for sprinkling around a page.

I sure hope to see your take on this fun challenge!
