I played along with Sketches4All - Stacey H-W's August Stash challenge. This month the challenge is to use a messy medium on your project - paint, ink, multi medium, gesso, water colors, etc. I am really NOT a messy scrapper. I used a hexagon template and paint to replicate the soccer ball on the background, but the paint bled through the template and is not crisp. I also tried to splatter paint, but that didn't work either and it just looks like some paint was spilled. I'm not sure how the artistic painters get that nice even splattered look. I also covered the little stars on the background at the top with pink paint circles.
For this layout I used the sketch below from Sketchbook 365 - August sketch challenge.
I used hexagons in lieu of the circles and my frame is a bit different in shape, but my layout is pretty true to the sketch.
Finally, I played along with Scrap Your Story - Challenge #22 to use arrows. I used 5 different foam arrows from American crafts.
Here are a couple of close-up photos:
Materials Used: paper - CTMH, frame - LYB; paint - Making Memories; arrows - American Crafts; fabric sticker - LYB; ticket sticker - Simple stories; corrugated heart - RAK from fellow scrapper; journaling block - Making memories; alphabet stickers - Thickers; chipboard numbers - Simple Stories; stencil - Studio Calico; chipboard corners - American Crafts.
