Pothos by Sandy Ang

Hi everyone it's Sandy ! I'm thrilled to be on the Scrappin Studio team. Jaime sent me the main kit Daydream Believer as well as add-on #4 Stepping Stone. So look out for projects from me every Sunday in February using these goodies.

We are smack in the middle of monsoon season in Singapore. All that rain encouraged my garden plants to grow like crazy. So last weekend I tackled a list of horticultural chores - including trimming back the pothos (or money plant).

This 8.5"x11" layout captures the moment when the chores were done and I could put my gloves and tools down. Seeing how well the garden looked made all that labour (and aching back) worth while.

My product choices were driven by the colours in my photo : green, cream, orange and black. I printed "GARDENIIIING" in Gills San MT Condensed font on the Sassafras Exclusive Woodgrain paper on the left. The "Pothos" title was created with American Crafts Natural Thickers. I use a micro brush to apply layers of inks to the raw chipboard alphas and finish them off with a coat of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

Have fun working with your February kits. And don't forget to play along with our challenge to win an Into the Woods Main Kit. More details can be found here.
