UPDATE 05.05.2011: this was chosen as a Sketchy Thursdays' fave for the week's challenge. Yahoo!
Woohoo! Mr. Mojo's in town! I was able to create this layout on a weekday! :D
Materials used in this LO are mostly from Scrap That's January "Don't Stop the Carnival" kit, with additional stamps, inks and stickles.
I am entering this in the following challenges: Sketchy Thursdays' 4.28 sketch challenge and Scrapbookers Anonymous' May challenge to use stamps in creating a patterned paper and 3 embellishments.
First, Sketchy Thursdays' sketch on which I based this layout:
Second, the stamps challenge requirements of Scrapbookers Anonymous:
To create the stamped PP requirement, I painted the upper half of the base paper with gesso. Once dried, I used distress ink to stamp on the image. Hence, the result:
Next, the 3 stamped embellishments:
One, Prima clear stamp postcard
Two and three, the intricate frame and butterflies, also from Prima
My journaling entry: Motherhood is such a happy journey!
The photo was taken on my 38th birthday. Very sentimental message and memorable day. :D
This is also an advanced Happy Mother's Day LO... for me! Hehe! :D
Thank you. :D
Materials used: Scrap That! January kit. Others: Teresa Collins clock transparency, Martha Stewart puncher, Tim Holtz and Prima stamps, Ranger stickles, distress inks and crackle paint, alcohol ink, gesso, black journaling pen, local brads and bling.
