Off The Rails Scrapbooking January 2015 Inspiration

A new year and the Off The Rails Scrapbooking January Mood Board was an amazing way to start my scrapbooking year and a big thankyou 2Crafty Chipboard for being our sponsors for this challenge.

My favourite place to be in summer is down the beach, especially on those hot days where you can spend the whole day swimming, kayaking, reading and walking ;exploring the amazing eco-environments including rock pools and sand dunes finishing the day watching the sun set.

Firstly I sprayed Tim Holz distress Inks spray 'Lemon Zest' heavily in several places at the top of my page, letting it dripple down the page and then sprayed 'White Linen' over the top so that it followed the yellow ink giving it a softer look. Using an old stencil I obtained from a local hardware store when I was painting my daughters in a sea theme about 15yrs, I added modelling paste shells over the dried paint. 

I looked through my scrap paper and found a selection of yellow card and paper and some chevron black and white to layer behind my beach sunset photo. Before gluing the layers down I used one of my Kaszazz 'Season' stamps with StazOn black Ink, and placed down some black cotton. 
Other elements I used to finish off my layout included yellow and white cotton twine and more black cotton around the photo, rubbed on some Rub Ons from 2 different Kaisercraft sets that I brought years ago and splattered Tim Holtz Ink sprays 'White Linen', 'Black Marble' and 'Lemon Zest' over the page. 

Hope Off The Rails Scrapbooking and  I have inspired you to take on the challenge of exploring different colour combinations and take inspiration from mine and others from our amazing mood boards each month. And another big thankyou to 2Crafty Chipboard for sponsoring this challenge.
