Oh, The Places You’ll Go – Creative Scrappers Sketch #189

As soon as I saw sketch #189 at Creative Scrappers, I was drawn to the circle elements and knew I wanted to create a layout that incorporated some of the fab Dusty Attic Cog pieces I just got from Tracy at Stay True to God (a wonderful online scrap store that offers an amazing selection of DA pieces). To give them an aged appearance, I first inked the chipboard, then heat embossed them with Adirondack embossing powder and misted with Tattered Angels Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist and here’s what I came up with for the sketch:

This is a close up of the cluster of cogs:

You’ll notice that I added 2 additional circles to the ones that were originally on the sketch. As it happens, the sheet of pp from the Tim Holtz Crowded Attic Paper Stash that I selected (the map) could be cropped to have South Korea in the upper left and Washington DC in the upper right. My parents are from South Korea and immigrated to America. They settled in Maryland, less than an hour’s drive north of DC, which is where I grew up. I didn’t move to PA until I was 23. So I thought it would be fun to highlight those 2 parts of the map. 😀
