Scrap & Music #18 - Nothing Else Matters

Another beautiful sketch provided by Scrap & Music! This time they choose a song by Metallica - Nothing Else Matters. I took two photos from our holiday in Egypt. We were snorkeling a lot and took many pictures under water. Finally time to get some of them scrapped! Here's my take on their sketch:

I took different shades of green/blue and beige for the papers to match them with the pictures. I think they look a little bit like the color of the ocean. Behind the clustered papers I applied a layer of white crackle paint and covered it with a little bit of distress ink after it was dry. After that I spritzed a bit of different mists and sprays. 

At the edges of the banners I used a little bit of embossing powder to give it a more interesting texture. 


I had no more space for my journaling, that's why I decided to make a "hidden" pocket tag by making a cut behind some of the layers.

On this picture you can see the texture of the crackle paint.

As title, I took the "life is ours" lyrics from the song.

And this is the sketch I based my LO on: 

Thanks for stopping by :)
