I am up on the Boys Rule Scrapbook Kits blog today with my take on a brand new sketch challenge!
This is the sketch that I created for us all to play with:
For this page, I pulled out some of the Kairsercraft Scrapyard papers in the rust and blue colours. I really liked the way they played off of each other.
In lieu of adding a patterned paper where the sketch has the star
paper, I used a mask and the grey Gelato that came in the kit to build a
bit of a pattern base behind my double ended banners. I am pretty much
brand new to Gelatos but have enjoyed using them in a couple of
different ways since I got my kit!
After that, I added
the banner shapes and then stitched a big square onto my page, right
over top of the banners. I must admit that my Gelatos were not quite
dry when I ran my layout through my sewing machine, so I got some
"track" marks where the foot of the sewing machane dragged through the
wet Gelato - but I really like the effect - not that I would recommend
it, it is a little mucky for your machine.
After that I added my photo and then did a bit of tearing and folding of my background paper, next I began to layer in some embellishments, A little Sharpie doodling and it was all done!
Here are a few close up photos:
