I am guesting over at Scrap our Stash this month. Today I am sharing my contribution for their second challenge.
The challenge is two part, first a sketch and secondly a product / stash busting sort of portion where you choose one item from each section of the list.
I enjoyed working with the sketch, it was a good one with lots of possibilities! I picked up this Simple Stories collection called "Snow Fun" last winter knowing it was perfect for my boys. Mostly because my youngest had a green winter coat! That is how us scrappers work, right?
I stuck really close to the sketch, but opting to use small square cut-aparts from one of the patterned papers instead of the suggested four small photos. I did appreciate that the sketch did suggest smaller photos as my pictures did not turn out well from this event and printing them on a smaller scale helped to disguise their lousy quality.
I layered in several of the Simple Stories stickers where possible adding pop dots behind some of them.
I also used some ephemera from Echo Park and enamel dots from YNS.
I moved my title (which was created from a combination of alphas and a sticker) up slightly so that I could add journaling to my page.
I ran the edges o all of my papers through white paint, and then traced / doodled around them with a black Sharpie.
For the stash portion of the challenge, I used a DEAR LIZZY date stamp, ECHO PARK EPHEMERA, and an Evalicious FLAIR.
Supply List: Simple Stories patterned papers and stickers; white and black Mr. Huey's mist; DecoArt white paint; black fine tip Sharpie; Evalicious flair; Echo Park ephemera; Your Next Stamp enamel dots; Dear Lizzy date stamp; Memento black ink.
Thanks so much for visiting today, I hope you join in the challenges at Scrap our Stash
you have until the 28th to play along.
