Technique Blog Hop-Featuring Close To My Heart's Multicolored Motif

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 14 of us highlighting the Multicolor Motif” Technique as shown on page 110 in the Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book!  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.  If you would like to start from the beginning, please visit this link  Debi.  While there you will also find a listing of all participants and their blog addresses if you should get lost or want to reference a blog along the way.  Let’s get started!

If you are coming from Melissa's Blog, you are on the right track! 

I used this month's featured technique to make my own background paper for a scrapbook page I put together featuring my grandson and his new puppy.  I used a variety of stamp sets to complete the motif.  I chose to use Close To My Heart's new paperpack "Typeset" and chose colors from Close To My Heart's exclusive inks..Juniper, Black, Cranberry, Brown Bag, and CremeBrulee....  that would match the paper pack perfectly. 
I had a blast layering and picking out just the right stamp to complete the look I wanted.
These are the stamp sets I used
Here's a look at the finished peice
The shot is a little narrow but you get the idea.

Until then...Happy Scrappin'
