Kraft+ July Challenge Mustard explosion

When I saw the new July Kraft + Challenge, I was unsure at first what to scrap, so I closely explored the photo to see if any one thing inspired some special moment in my or families life. Nothing sprang to mind and I was just about to give up when I noticed the tape hanging down in the right hand corner, wondering what it said I zoomed in.....'Bingo'. The words "Please cross this line" sprang open the memories of a year ago seeing my daughter standing one foot either side of the Germany and Switz borders during her amazing highland dancing experience of dancing in the Basel Tattoo in Switzerland with OzScot Australia. What amazing memories.  The border painted in yellow paint sparked an idea from which I have created my layout. The colours of my photo haven't come out as bright as the yellow border line and mustard colour of the background stamping and embossing on the actual layout but you will get the idea.

Items used:
  • 12"x12" kraft paper
  • Mont Marte Impasto to seal paper.
  • DecoArt media crackle paint with yellow paint added. (Border line)
  • DecoArt media crackle paint with black paint added. (Pavers)
  • StazOn Jet Black.
  • Kazsass Brick stencil (Pavers)
  • Heidi Swapp Mini Stencils: Remember
  • Fundermentals: camera and plane chipboard shapes
  • 6 1/2" 'Now Boarding' Kaisercraft Paper Pad: Die cut.
  • Kaisercraft Collectibles 'Closeup!'
  • Corrigated yellow and white cardboard.
  • Tinby Metallic melts 'Golden nugget' and Versa color 'Bisque'
  • Date stamp and Journaling pen
  • Dymo manual labeller.
