After a rocky start, I finally found my mojo and got to work on a bunch of projects I have been wanting to do this weekend. I received a whole new batch of pictures in the mail and I am totally anxious to get to work on them. Of course, this means I will probably put off the vacation pictures, yet again.
This first layout is actually of vacation pictures from the beach at Atlantis in the Bahamas. I am totally missing this place....
I sprayed the background with 2 different shades of blue glimmer mist.
All of the added elements are from Colorbok - Wild Indigo.
The sketch is from Creative Genealogy.
My second page was inspired by Off the Wall Craftiness. This week's color combo is red and aqua.
The sketch is from Stuck on U Sketches.
All the papers are from Heidi Grace. I inked up some of the flocked snowflakes with a light aqua ink and added some sparkly snowflakes. Those came from the dollar spot at Joann's.
Other materials used:
Aqua snowflakes stickers from Target
Making Memories glitter swirls
Miss Elizabeth Winter stickers
The last layout for the day came from the sketch at Sketches in Thyme. A beautiful sketch that called for one photo. My butterfly pictures are the ones that just came in the mail, so I was pretty happy!
The color inspiration is this week's challenge at Frosted Designs. A great photo was posted and this picture jumped right out of the box, begging to be scrapped.
Not sure where I got the background paper, but it worked perfectly.
The large doily was inked with a light pink paint dauber.
The smaller doilies were sprayed with glimmer mist and then inked a bit to tone down the spray.
The butterflies were cut out by hand, colored in the Tombow markers and dotted with white paint. I mounted them on pop dots to give them some dimension.
The fabric flowers, buttons and ribbons all came from a wonderful kit from Katies Kreations 4 U.
The colors just happened to fit the challenge perfectly!
