49 and Market, The Toolshed KitTracie ShumanComment

Hello! I'm Vivian Lake and today I would like to share my 4th project with you using the newest toolshed kit, 'Colorburst'. This kit is full of ephemera perfect for those masculine layouts you've been putting off . . . hint hint!!! My previous pages have been heavy on mixed media, so I went with a different style of layering and stitching lots of the die cuts that come in the kit.

I did use word stamps from my stash, as well as stitching and thread.
But everything else is from the kit.

I liked making the layout look a little messy with loose thread here and there. I also like the "layered" stamp look achieved by mixing and matching small number and word stamps.
