Saturday Slot

I've finally got round to scrapping a photo from the Happy little Stampers Retreat I went to in Stockport earlier this month.  I've used the Challenge YOUrself theme - Use Sprays and Inks - I thought it was really fitting for a weekend full of inkyness!

Here's my inky page:

I started by using ink sprays in yellow and brown and then added some red ink spots by unscrewing the lid and flicking the applicator. Once that was dry I used a stencil to add some inky stripes to frame the photo. 

Next I started to build up a stack of stickers. I chose a camera, suitcases and a taxi as well as some words that I thought were relevant. I added a washi strip to the top left and bottom right corners of the page as to help the flow.

Finally I added the journalling straight on top of one of the stencilled stripe blocks.

Paper: AC, kraft cardstock
Inmks: Ranger distress oxide, fired brick, fossilized amber; Mister Huey's color mists, plum thumb, sunshine, dark calico
Stencil: Uniko, Wonky Stripes
Stickers: AC, Shimelle
Washi from my stash

Thanks for looking today, it's been fabulous having your company for a while. And keep crafting!
