Explore with Baggage Claim

I am up on the Quick Quotes Blog today!  Love this layout and this new line!

I have a layout to share with Quick Quote's new Baggage Claim collection and one of the new Powder Puff Chalking Inks, Caribbean Blue.  There are 12 new gorgeous colors in the Powder Puff Chalking Inks.  You can check them out here.

I had so much fun playing with Baggage Claim, it is such a versatile line, you would think by the name it would be just from travel...but I created a fun boy page with it.


I love how this page turned out...I adore the teals and corals in the line, and they are two of my favorite colors.  I was so inspired by a page I saw a couple months in the online magazine Jot, that I pinned it. You can see the pin here. Then Quick Quotes came out with the line and I instantly knew I wanted to use the a large globe and use some of the fun elements in this collection to create the layering style she used.    

I actually painted with the Caribbean Blue Chalking Ink, you can see it behind the chevrons and again on the top and bottom of the page.  I simply wet a small paint brush and dabbed  it into the ink pad.  The result is a fabulous paint like look.  Easy to do and easy to apply.  There is just so much you can do with these chalking inks.
