Hi Scrappers! Yesterday Karan revealed her new sketch for the
Since my term as a DT-member will start with sketch #109; I submit my layout for the current challenge. After having done some clean layouts with really bright and shiny colors, I decided to create this time a more vintage looking and distressed one, with neutral colors like black and kraft.
And here we go...:
The background paper is from the Papermania "All aboard" collection. It's a british company and probably unknown to most of you. But they have really cool stuff and they aren't expensive. To create the background behind the picture and the layered scraps, I covered up a rectangle in with some washi tape, colored it with acrylic paint and let it dry. After that I used a mask and modeling paste mixed with acrylic color. On top, I spritzed some Glimmer Mist over some spots of the layout. At the edges of the bg paper I used a clear stamp from Kaisercraft and black Archival Ink.
Then I added some star-shaped brads by Prima. They just matched perfect with these vintage colors.
The little label is from Tim Holtz and the tag is hidden in a pocket behind the layered paper, so I could add some journaling.
I used perfect pearls to create the small arrows (is that the right expression? I'm not sure if these are really arrows ^^) For the taller arrows I used textured sticky cardstock.
