Wednesday Words

As well as the cards I shared on the previous two posts I've found time to make a couple of scrapbook pages over the weekend. I'm feeling quite impressed with my craft room creativity time!

Today's page is for Scrap Our Stash Challenge #30. 

I knew the three photos I wanted to use as they tell a little story, a bit like film reel stills. But that L-A-Y-E-R-S part, well that really had me thinking and I have to say borrowing ideas from the DT samples.

L - letters used in the title
A - arrows, ampersand
Y - yellow
E - enamel dots
R - red pen used for circles, red dots
S - stripes, splats

I used a tin and a red pen to draw several circles and repeated this using a smaller tin at the bottom right.

We all stood on the river banks waiting for him to fall in, but no agile and fit he skittered across sure footed and confident as only a child is.

Papers, alphas & stickers: Simple Stories, Summer Vibes
Dies: Avery Elle, pinked; Xcut, spiro circles; Die-namics, ampersand; Technique Tuesday, That Arrow Card; Ppaer Smooches, cardbooking
Stamps: SU, Gorgeous Grunge
Ink: SU, crushed curry
Embellishments: Doodlebug sprinkles, ladybug, spring & bumblebee asst.

I'll be back on Saturday to share my other scrapbook page and tomorrow and Friday with DT cards to showcase.  Thanks for looking today, hope to see you again real soon.

And keep crafting!
