...when you are having fun! i can hardly believe it's June - yip halfway through the year and halfway to Christmas! But for now it's time to post about the new challenge over at scrapbook challenges. this sketch below is a super easy double page layout and can be turned into so many different options - with only a bit of imagination. so without further a due...
here's what i did with the sketch! i am not a huge fan of skew - not furniture in my house or photos on my layouts. if i am gonna do crooked then it has to moderate! so i opted for straight photos. to create my background i used acrylic paint. this is so easy. take a bottle of acrylioc paint, pour or pounce a few blobs right down the center horizontally across both pages, take a old credit card and move the paint around randomly. change direction often to avoid a monotonous effect. lave to dry and create!
i added some random cardstock embellishments from Pink Paislee alongside some beautiful prima, mme and creative imaginations papers.
because i kept the colours quite neutral (for me) i wanted my title to blend into the background as opposed to pop out. i used some old basic grey lettering to create my title and then added an outline using an ordinary HB pencil instead of a thin black marker. easy huh? nothing too it. all different technique that can be complicated but instead you can just have fun and make it so easy!
hop on over to scrapbook challenges and check out the single page version! there's loads of inspiration and some cool announcements, and challenges where you can win some awesome goodies! we are having awesome and really chilly weather (the coldest we have ever had here), so if the weather permits i will be back later to share some cards i have made using only scraps pulled from my table (read:hurricane inflicted mess). and tomorrow is an alcohol ink class at sweet scrappins! i always look forward to those classes! the girls are super excited about learning all about techniques, are open minded and Carla has the best priced goodies (always stocked well)in town! oh and did i mention the sausage rolls we have at tea time - they are worth attending a class just to have them. which i will try not to since i am on a mission of not having bread and wheat - the very things the government give us that will certainly kill us! (my little rant for today!) stay warm SA!
