LO #13 1st Day @ College

hello! Christmas is getting nearer! Here to wish you a happy and meery Christmas :) May the Lord bless you always!!

I made a layout recently, it turned out VERYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY BUSY and COLORFUL *o*
and I love it!
the inspiration came from the in-thing-----> CHEVRON and with colorful ink splattersdoes this make you happy? :D with all of the papers from Echo Park's Happy Days collection
these are back and forth kind of chevron... all handcut! oh my goodness, you can't even believe it, I spent hours cutting the arrows making chevron (mmm.... it doesn't seem like a chevron now.....) it is a lot of work, I don't really enjoy that process, too tiring~

the colorful splatters are just sooooooooooooooooooooooo cute, really really love it
me likey the cloud stamp from Studio Calico's past kit (Candy Shop), got the stamp from a giveaway by Margarethe :)
I used both of the stamps with 2 types of pattern (dots and stripes).
The cloud with a plain design was made like this: turn the stamp backwards to adhere on acrylic block and stamp it with the backside, which gives a plain cloud with the same size, this technique is clever, saw it somewhere though
never thought that negative punches can be that useful and great, now we can get the most of our punches and scrap-that-was-supposed-to-be-in-the-bin!sorry but i have to say again, I like this corner... it turned out so different and cute, haha!

Sorry for the excitement here, this layout just makes me happy, with all the colours and everything.... sigh~~~~~~
