Hi there everyone!
Today i have for you the layout i created for the World Scrap Battle and Tournament.
I`m fairly new to making layouts and the theme was a problem for me, making this one. I found out i just should use the inspiration photo itself as a focal point on my layout. So here it is:
As i was going to use distress ink and stencil to make my own backround. I found that i had to use watercolour paper to make sure it could handle the saturation. The only thing i didn`t like is that it became too bulky and no matter how much glue i used to adhere it to the cardstock, it didn`t get less bulky. Either way i had a lot of fun trying out some techniques that are new to me. I actually like how it turned out all though there were a lot of greater entries by others in the battle.
The pic i adhered with 3d coushins so make it stand a bit more out from the paper. The stencil i have used is the checkerboard stencil from Prima Finnabair collection. Which i used together with the Modelling paste, also Prima. To get the yellow colour i added a couple of small pinches of Golden sleighbells magicals from Lindy`s Stamp Gang.
The sentiment is chipboard sticker from my own stash. I don`t remember the company i`m sorry to say.
This star is a star-tag which i embossed with all white embossing powder and then added som black glitter embossing to it. I coudn`t catch the glittery stuff but i like how it turned out.
All the other papers and embellies are from a class i took by Irit Landgraf earlier this year. These have been sponsored by Hip Kit Club if my senile brain aren`t too far off, lol. I think it`s fabulous no matter what.
That`s it for today. Tomorrow i`ll be back with my last creation for round 1 and it is in the Mixed Media category. This one i`m fairly satisfied with, so i have saved it for last.
Thanks again for visiting me and hope you have enjoyed your stay!
