Well it's Friday which means it's my turn to share my latest creation.
This one was taken on a recent family holiday to the beach. We had a ball.....we got lucky
with the weather and were on the beach every single day. Bliss.
I snapped this selfie with my guy, and wanted to document how nice it was to spend a
whole week together, as a family. Without the pressures of work, distance, and all the other commitments, and frustrations. Perfection!
As soon as I saw this background sheet of soft creamy woodgrain by
I HAD to use it. It's just beautiful.
I added some spritz, and then tore and adhered lots of little strips of various papers.
I LOVE using leftovers, and this technique is a great way to used up little bits of papers
from previous projects. I try not to think too much at this stage, just stick them down
randomly, with some overlapping.
I then added some random stamping around the edges of the paper. This helps bring
it all together.
I then adhered my photo with foam tape and added a few finishing touches
2 Crafty chipboard
arrows and title, journaling, word stickers, and some final flicks
of black paint).
This technique is something I do often - different colour combos look totally different.
As I said it's a great way to use up scraps!
I kept my colour scheme to teal, black, cream and kraft, as they have a real beachy feel
to them - and they look pretty great together.
Why don't you give it a try?
See you next week.
