Hi, today I am sharing with you my take on the first scrapbooking layout for the supreme scrap tournament challenge. This is the very first layout (or mixed media project) challenge and it was a bit tricky for me, as I never make double layouts. Talk about a challenge!!
- Theme: 1000 steps from home
- Make a double layout or double mixed media project that shows where your live
- But it all has to be within 1000 steps from your home!!!!
- For example you could make photos of your favorite tree, busstop, house as long it is within 1000 steps of your home!
And then don´ts: no spray inks allowed, no single photo layouts (min. 3 photos), don´t hide the journaling (use visible one with at least 50 words).
So all elements in there I hardly ever do, multiple pages, multiple photos and two pages and NO SPRAY INKS!! Well…if you know me good, these are all things that are hard for me :). But I tackled the task and here is my take:
What did I do? I first chose a patterned paper by 7 Dots Studio (yes..the paper has all kinds of color splodges and splatters on it, and as it is already on the paper = no actual ink spray used!!). I combined that paper with kraft cardstock, took my brayer and some acrylic paint and rolled differend paint colours with a brayer onto the surface. The I let it dry and stamped with grey and black stamp ink all kinds of stamp images onto the background. After that I cut some journaling tags and placed them onto their places (inked the edges with black ink). Next I took out some 3rd Eye chipboard and used a Copic marker to color them black. Also added some Stickles over the heart areas for more detail. The clouds are also by 3rd Eye and I inked the edges with Distress Ink and added Crackle Accents over the clouds – I love that look! Then I just added some badges for decoration, the title and some sticker words and the journaling. Which by the way I QUITE long :). And in the end I am really happy with the result. I used black and white photos, so I could really play with the colours. Even if I don´t make it to the next round, I am glad I joined, as this double page really turned out nice. I kinda like it!!
So, that is all for now, wishing everyone lots of luck!!
