Wednesday Words

Two scrapbook pages to share today - I'm crafting up a storm with Shimelle's Layer on Layer on Layer class!

These pages are both from week 2 and the focus was on using different types of embellishments to create layers.

The challenge for this page was to use die cut ephemera and build the layers behind the photo and then adhere the whole stack to backing paper.

I splodged and sprinkled white and yellow colour mist over the background paper and then while it was drying - took forever - created my photo stack.

A bit of scattered journalling to finish off.

Papers: Simple Stories, Sunshine & Happiness
Die cuts: Simple Stories, Sunshine & Happiness, Bloom & Grow; AC Shimelle, Box of Crayons
Ink: Mister Huey's color mists, opaque white & sunshine

The challenge for this next was was to use stamps to give the illusion of layers. right up my street then and I amassed an enormous collection on my craft table once I'd decided on suitable photos - the hardest bit of this page!

I started by creating a bit of background interest using a stencil randomly placed over the plain grid paper. i chose colours using the photos as a guide.

I thought I had millions of butterfly stamps but I was wrong only a handful after all! The title is a combination of alpha stickers and stamping.

Papers: Simple Stories Snap Basics; Essentials Paperz, junkitz; Echo Park, Country Drive
Stencil: Heffy Doodle, Unbe-leaf-able
Inks: SU, lemon lime twist, peekaboo peach,smoky slate; Memento, tuxedo black
Stamps: SU, Papillon Pouri; Technique Tuesday, Ali Edwards amazing, Perspectives, Beautiful, Incredible; Kaisercraft, Edges, Botanical, Texture Triangles; Uniko, English Country Gareden Butterflies; Clearly besotted, A Better you; My mind's Eye, The Sweetest thing; PRS, Little Things, New Day; Maya Road, Spool Sentiments
Alphas: Lilybee Designe, Pinwheel; Simple Stories, Bloom & Grow, Summer Vibes

Wow! What a lot of stamps! But then I do have he most enormous stash as stamping is what I do all the time.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, I hope you've enjoyed my pages.

And keep crafting!
