All about the timing: Scrap It With Attitude DT Inspiration

Octobers Theme over at Scrap It With Attitude is 'More than three photos'. My trip to Switzerland was the perfect photo shoot for this theme as it seemed to take more than one push of the button and many photos to get that 'Perfect Snapshot' on a moving Bus/Train. I suppose you can say that "It's All About The Timing" as anything from people, trees, tunnels (oh my gosh the Swiss are great at making tunnels, they have had a lot of practise there seems to be one around each bend lol), posts even other buses, boats and trains seem to get in the way of a fantastic photo opportunity.

I prepared my piece of travel paper from Kaisercraft with white gesso before using my Tim Holtz 'Doily' stencil and moulding paste. When it was dry I used my water colour paint and added a range of different shades of green and brown to represent the natural elements that sometimes got in the way. I then sprayed Dylusions Ink Chopped pesto over my new stencil 'elongated hexagons' from Studio Calico and splattered some of the Pesto, White linen and London Blue Dylusions Ink over the page.

I found my camera stamps and used the words Click and Capture to stamp around the page and my date stamp to remind me when I was in this wonderful country.  I have a piece of cardboard from a box I tore up that makes fantastic lines like little tracks when you ink the edge with StazOn ink and use it as a stamp.
The small photos were placed behind a 'LA DE DAH' photo booth frame to show some of the great 'not' perfect shots taken in my attempt to get the perfect picture postcard photo. I inked the frame with 'black soot' distress ink from Tim Holtz and stamped a world stamp from Kaisercraft 'now boarding' with StazOn on the bottom of the frame.

The papers and paper elements I used to back and layer behind my main photo was from a selection from The Kaisercraft's 'Mister fox' collection, Secret Bird Society Collection 'Mystery' and 61/2 paper pad 'Now Boarding'. On the Snap-Shot tag I wrote some of the things that I'm sure purposefully (lol) jumped into my photo shots.

Other elements added were the wood veneer camera from Studio Calico (Inked with Tim Holtz Distriss Ink Spiced marmalade', my wording was done with an old fashion mini label maker and to finish off I used 'stormy sky' distress ink from Tim Holtz to soften and blend the edges of the page.

Hope you enjoyed my take on 'More than 3 photos' theme at Scrap It With Attitude, and hope you will join us in the challenge. I look forward in seeing your amazing take on the theme.
