Wednesday Words

Another day, another scrapbook page!

I've had this layout from Let's Get Sketchy in mind for several days and just needed to find a moment to print out the photo - such a fun image!  

Be sure to check out the fabulous pages from the DT here. Such a doozy of a sketch and I really enjoyed interpreting it and creating my page.

I used up loads of scrap pieces of paper for the strips and banner, stamped the camera and film roll images and sentiment and then got incredibly messy flicking ink splodges all over the page. I used  a distress re-inker blobbed onto an acrylic block and dipped a paintbrush into it.  It worked really well, but took for ever to dry and being impatient I added the alphas and got even more ink on my fingers - lesson learnt!

Papers: scraps from Little Yellow bicycle, Collage Press, October Afternoon, American Crafts & others
Alphas: Fancy Pants Designs, red large alpha; Bella Blvd, Sophisticates; Websters, storytellers
Stamps: Uniko Studio, Strike A Pose!
Ink: Memento, nautical blue; Ranger distress, chipped sapphire
Die: Xcut, spiro circle
Punch: ek success, scallop edger
Embellishments: Scrap 365, wooden shapes stars; Simple Stories, diy burlap stickers

Thanks for coming by and spending some time looking today.
