July 2008 Scrapbooking from the Inside Out Kit

Here are my design team submissions using the Scrapbooking from the Inside Out July kit which is themed "freedom". You can click the pictures for larger, more detailed versions.

Each design team member creates 4 layouts and 1 altered item for each monthly kit. My favorite submission from this month's kit is my altered item, which is a 16x20 canvas:This canvas uses a really cool gradient paint technique for the background. I have to admit, I think this is one of my favorite paint techniques.

And my favorite layout from this month's submission is "Self Portrait": Here's the hidden journaling from "Self Portrait": The next layout is called "Butterflies": "Butterflies" uses another cool paint technique which gives a textured edge to your painted surface.

The next layout is "Shine" (and yes, that's me wearing a cheesehead):The fun part of "Shine" is that the "S" in the title is actually a chipboard flourish that just happened to work really well as an "S".

The final layout is "Young and Wild and Free":

"Young and Wild and Free" takes full advantage of the Coredinations cardstock which has a different color core. Sanding this paper creates some cool effects.

Here's the hidden journaling from "Young and Wild and Free": I really had a ball putting together my first design team submission. I can't wait to see what's in next month's kit!

Great layouts! I really love this kit. I'm so torn on whether to blow my scrap budget for the month or not.
