Oh dear, I'm not much good at blogging in the summer......
At the minute I've come down with the flu so I'm writing this post in fits and starts.
As it's the first Saturday in the month (can you believe it's August already!!) we have a new scrap map challenge at Creative Craft World.
This is my take on the sketch
I used the 'Echo Park Hello Summer' kit and for once I didn't use my Cameo!
I tried to do some paint splatters (lol) with pink paint but I think more of it ended up on my poor laptop than on the page....
I cut nine 1½" squares from 5 sheets of the double sided papers and inked the edges with antique linen distress ink. After adhering them to the page I added various sized buttons from Fancy Pants.
The photo is of Phoebe crossing a wooden bridge at a beauty spot near our home. She was petrified of the water rushing underneath it so Caleb crossed first and encouraged her from the other side.
I can remember being afraid of this same bridge as a child and I'm still not keen on crossing it now!
The banner underneath the photo and the sentiments are stickers from the Echo Park kit.
The title is also made with stickers from the kit and I added a doodled string with black pen. I pierced holes at the 'ends' of the string and put red brads through to 'pin' the string to the page.
To frame the whole page I added faux stitching ¼" from the edge using my Tim Holtz ruler as a guide.
I haven't got round to adding the journaling to the page yet but I made this tag to hide behind the photo. I cut one of the journaling tags from a sheet of paper in the kit and matted it on to green card. Using my SU tab punch, I punched a tab from the chevron paper and taped it to the top of the tag. I hand cut a heart and added 2 mini gems for a little bit of bling!
Don't forget there's still time to enter the mini monochrome challenge at CCW too.
You can find it here.
