Another My Little Shoebox CHA Sample...

This is another sample layout I created for the "Sunday Market" line that will be released at CHA by My Little Shoebox.  There is a lot going on here, but my favorite design element was... well... a mistake!  I cut the piece of cardboard and distressed it... not a mistake.  I dry brush painted it with a cream paint... not a mistake.  I used the new My Little Shoebox stamps on top of the paint... again, not a mistake.  THEN... I decided that the cream paint was too white for this line and it needed to be a bit more yellow, so I sprayed some Glimmer Mist on the cardboard... that in itself was not a mistake... but then... the brown stamps started to bleed a bit (not anticipating the bleeding was the mistake)... BUT... I liked the effect... and then the Glimmer Mist dried and the whole piece took on a crusty, shimmery look... and it almost looked like wallpaper... SOOOOOOO, the moral to this story is, DON'T ADMIT TO MISTAKES IN SCRAPBOOKING!  Nobody else, but you, knows that the BRILLIANT new technique you used wasn't your game plan all along... ;-)
