Hey Roadies, tonight I'd like to share a new layout with you. The pictures are from one of our last hiking-trips this summer. We had a great day seeing all these beautiful waterfalls while being quiet alone in the forest. I created this layout for two challenges. The sketch is provided by ScrapFriends Challenge #20 and in the meantime I used the Challenge #5 December tic tac toe board from 1 2 3 Get Scrappy.
I had the background paper for quiet a long time in my stash and didn't know what to use it for and finally I found a theme what matches perfectly. On the background I used a lot of different techniques: painting with gesso and acrylic paint, masking, spritzing, smearing inka gold and stitching.
Here you can see the glitter alphas I used and the small fuzzy cutting I did for this project.
For the frames of the photos I used an old map, which is quiet good matching with my theme as I think. On that layout I used my first bottle cap as an embellishment. I cut out a circle of my map, glued it down and threw some clear UTEE in the cap. After heat setting I glued the bottle cap on my layout.
After having applied a layer of gesso and acrylic paint I did some masking. I took Inka Gold (in silver) and painted the embossed parts lightly with my finger. Every picture "hangs" like a painting on my layout.
Behind every picture I used some lace trim to give it a more layered look. Besides, I glued my subtitle on a piece of vellum and added some flowers. On the last detail picture you can see the stitching quiet well, too.
And that's the sketch and the tic tac toe board I used as inspiration. I used a diagonal row from the board: eyelets, baker's twine and the color green.
Thank you so much for stopping by, and it would be great if you become a follower of my blog :)
