After discovering some new challenge blogs on the net I decided to try a few. I have used Sketch #266 from Creative Scrappers and Challenge #9 from 1,2,3 Get Scrappy to inspire and challenge myself in producing this layout. So I packed my scrapping bag again and off I went camping again with my scrapping buddy, with plans to create another great camping trip layout.
|Chalks, something silver, glossy accents/epoxy.|
The frame was cut out from the packaging of my scrapping buddy's chipboard frames, thanks Fiona, I then painted it with gesso and then used the chalks to add colour. To finish off the frame I used a natural twine around the edge.
To add to the background and layers under the photo I used strips of a variety of washi tapes, rub ons and selection of scrap papers which I distressed the edges of, used chalks and distress inks to blend colours and shading together.
I used paper sticker/cut outs and covered them with Dimensional Magic (Plaid Royal Coat) to make my glossy accent/epoxy embellishments and when they had dried I cracked them to give them the appearance of a time past.
Natural twine was used as a vine behind the small silver butterflies, small roses and large flowers with the silver flower centres and pearl drops which followed the sketch idea of a flowing line down the centre of the layout.
Hope you to enjoyed my take on these 2 challenges ( Creative Scrappers and 1,2,3 Get Scrappy) as much as I enjoyed working with the ideas and products.
