The World is Your Oyster - New Challenge Layout
Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you had a scrappy weekend. We didn't do much, but I didn't seem to get much scrapping done either. Sort of a lazy weekend I guess. I did play around this afternoon in my scraproom and completed this layout.
It is another layout of Maddie on the beach in Aruba. I just love this picture of her looking out over the water. I played along with Sketches with a Twist. Their November challenge was to use the following sketch and a rubber stamp. Here is the sketch, which I used for the right side of my layout:
I used two large stamps that I've had for ages. The starfish and the seashell. I used Making memories paint to stamp the images. I also used CTMH alpha stamps for the "the, is, and your" on the title.
For the left side I used the Once Upon a Sketch for November and rotated the photo. I'm not so great at layering, a multitude of paper seashells and metal on top of burlap on top of painted stamps on pattern paper. I overlapped the title over the photo and used burlap in lieu of honeycomb. Here is the sketch:
Finally, I played along with Colorful Creations November Recipe challenge. The challenge was to use at least two of the following techniques together: Stitching, distressing, dry embossing, wet embossing, or layering. I used stitching and layering for my two techniques. For the stitching, I cut a heart out on my cricut and then used it as a template for my stitching.
Here are a few closeup pictures:
