Hi Elisa here with my first layout created for the Lets Get Sketchy Design Team. This week's sketch by Laura Whitaker http://scrappinaroundtheclock.blogspot.com is fantastic and I encourage everyone to hop on over to Lets Get Sketchy Blog and give the challenge a go. For the background I used ink splatters (London Blue - Dylusions Spray) and a summer background stamp plus electric blue glitter in splatters.
In the above close up photo, the chipboard is from Scrapmatts and the flair buttons from The Scrapbook Store. I distressed around all the papers (Life of the Party Collection - Basic Grey, ILoveSummer - Simple Stories) and the circles were made by tracing around large circle dies.
In the above close up photo, I have used one of my favourite money saving scrapbook techniques! The seagulls are made by spreading modelling paste through the negative chipboard sheet, essentially using it as a stencil once the chipboard seagulls have being used. Winner! This is a great technique one that I have learnt from a scrappychatdesigns.blogspot.com.au/ kit; a layout from one of Beck Beattie's Creative Team. Perfect for adding dimension to your background on a beach layout. The cloud journaling spot is from Evalicious and the flair button from The ScrapbookStore and the Sun embellishment is from Studio Calico.
