Cool As Bro | Sue Plumb

Hi peeps!
Sue Plumb here with you today and it's time for another design team project share from me. Two weeks ago, I was lucky enough to attend the annual Flutterby 'Create by the Lake' retreat held at Lake Keepit, along with several members from the Flutterby Design Team (and about 75 other ladies). I was so happy to be able to get together with these girls in person - they really are my people!

Here's a shot of us together taken just after the colour activity that Anita had organised...

L to R - Skai, Tam, Anita, me (Sue) and Krisy

Whilst on retreat, I also had the opportunity to create several Flutterby projects, the first of which I am sharing today. This page was created using a combination of Flutterby items.

I started with a white cardstock base, and I added some red watercolour paint using a Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Dust (Candy) and a wide brush. I then took my Flutterby 'Stargazed' stencil (currently on special in the Flutterby store, so grab one if you don't have it already!) and added some texture using Colour Blast Colour Paste (Dusty Charcoal); and some splatters of red & black mist.

I then created a layered mat for my photo using a range of Everyday Etc cards (some of these were from the recently released 'Xtreme Teen' collection); a page tab and some messy black cotton for added texture.

I fussy cut the large pair of sunglasses from another of the 'Xtreme Teen' Everyday Etc cards, which I topped with a flair button

The title was fussy cut from the same card as the glasses, and I added a the Blackboard Sticky Quote directly onto my photo. Around my page I stuck a couple of Snippet Strips, which also helped to bring more of the aqua colour onto my page.

As a final touch, alongside my photo I added a little ghetto blaster die cut from the 'Xtreme Teen' Die Cut Bits & Bobs pack; and a few stamped words and I was done.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Flutterby blog today so I could share this with you. I will be back again in a couple of weeks with another project. In the meantime, stay tuned to see what the rest of the team has been up to and don't forget to share your own projects in our Flutterby Inspiration HQ group on Facebook.
Until next time, happy scrapping!
