Next to crafting, my weakness is bubblegum. Here, I get to combine my two passions. Sweet!
All of this excitement must have me on a sugar high. I bounced all over making this one, unable to make decisions. Do you ever do this? Good thing paper crafting is fairly forgiving in the re-do department. Plus, crafting, no matter the direction you go in, is oh, so sweet when using the yummy Candyland Kit!
GRAY OR COLOR?
Here’s one example of where I couldn’t stick with a plan. Originally, I was going to go with gray jars, only to change my mind and go with color-coded jars. Though, I did keep the gray lids, adding Epoxy Dots to give them the color tie-in.
BLACK OR WHITE?
I also had a hard time deciding on a title treatment. White stickers or black? What would you have done? I finally landed on white. I realize white on white is tricky, but I hope this alpha shows well enough being 3D and all.
The rest of the page came together fairly well. I fussy cut candy from pattern paper in the kit.
STAMPING & 2ND GENERATION STAMPING
I stamped additional candy. The base layer of candy in each jar is also stamped. To create more depth in the jars, I stamped twice between inkings. This way, one candy impression was darker while the second stamped lighter. Because of this, I stamped each candy image separately. If this isn’t for you, this cutie kit comes with candy bundles, making it super easy to fill a jar with a single stamped impression!
For the journaling, I followed the color order of the page, using five different pens.
That’s it. I hope you’ve found a tasty treat or two to take away from this design.
