Today I'm sharing a layout that I created for the Sassy Scrapper August Recipe Challenge and the Off the Rails August Mood Palette Challenge.
This is the Recipe Challenge at Sassy Scrapper this month...
And this month at Off the Rails, they have both a sketch and a mood board to inspire us...
So here is the layout that I've created for these challenges...
This photo of my hubbie and I was taken when we went on a cruise 3 years ago! We had such a wonderful time and this particular day we visited the beautiful island of Lifou!
From the mood board, I was inspired by the colours and the butterflies. I loved the sketch, and stuck to it fairly closely, except that I used one photo instead of two, and I added a little cluster in the bottom right hand corner.
I have definitely gone "off the rails" with this layout... this is the first time that I've created a layout with NO PATTERNED PAPER!!! I am not usually a mixed media / messy kind of scrapper, but I wanted to challenge myself, and I'm happy with the end result! I was super inspired by Heather McMahon's layout and tutorial!
Here are some closeups...
To create the 'watercolour' effect I've used Heidi Swapp Colorshine in Citron and Dylusions spray ink in Lemon Zest. Also on my background I've used a Kaisercraft stamp with black ink, a Kaisercraft stencil with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, I've stamped with a round lid dipped in Black Colorshine, and I've added three different strips of washi tape (all from D-lish Scraps). I also tucked some tangled thread under my photo for some added texture.
To embellish my layout, you can see here that I've added some black resin butterflies and a flower from D-lish Scraps, as well as a Kaisercraft die cut.
I also added a Pinkfresh Studio die cut and scattered some D-lish enamel dots around as well.
For my title I used Amy Tangerine Thickers.
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look at my layout! Thank you for any comments that you leave also!
There's still a few days left to join in on these challenges if you haven't yet!
