It seems that I am venturing back to a few of my favourite scrapping places...after not having played along in quite some time! This time I'm playing along with sketch 20 at Scrap Africa....you can see the fantastic creations from the DT HERE if you're needing some inspiration :)
Here is my take on the sketch....
Ive used some fairly old October Afternoon papers - from the Sidewalks & Sasparilla collections....and the green piece I've backed my layout with is even older! From MME "Wild Asparagus" collection....anyone remember that one?!
This is the sketch
And now for some close ups.....
My cluster, using 2crafty Lucy's flourish frame, Manor House & Prima flowers, Cheery Lyn die cut leaves & Martha Stewart punched butterly
Title...and journaling (which doesn't stand out too much, but I'm happy with that!)
And you can see a bit better here what I've done on the background....using gyprockers tape as a mask & a yellowy coloured gelato...I quite like the effect. Plus there's some chickenwire template work using gesso applied with a sponge.
The pics were from when I was participating in the FMS photo a day challenge a few month ago.
And a better close up of the journaling
So, as you can see....the planning, booking etc is done!! All we have to do now is wait until the big day....just under 2 more months - I can't wait!!!
This will hopefully be the first of many layouts about our trip to Ireland.
I am so looking forward to getting over there, taking heaps of photos (we all know I will...lol) and then being able to scrap them (although I'm thinking maybe for the majority of the photos a Project Life type thing might be the go?)
Okie doke....that's all from me for now
Lets hope my mojo keeps going the way it is, because I'm having so much fun creating again :)
Take care & thanks for dropping by...xx
