Tuesday Talk

More scrapbook pages again today and yes they're both as a result of that Shimelle class Layer on Layer on Layer!

This page uses those awesome Cocoa Vanilla Boys Rule papers and embellishments again. The most perfect collection for me and I love the blue and green colours!

The placement challenge for this page was to use the diagonal. So only two sets of embellishments instead of the usual trio. And as just about everything came from the same paper collection it was a breeze to put together - no searching for matching elements.

Loving all those splodgy patterns! I added a few splats of my own too and some deliciously thin MAMBI washi tape.

Papers, Stickers, Chipboard, Clear Stickers: Cocoa Vanilla, Boys Rule
Washi: MAMBI
Enamel dots: Freckled Fawn
Ink: Mister Huey's Color Mists, dark calico

I'm popping this page into the challenge at Scrap The Boys where the theme is Stay Wild.

The challenge for the next page was to add a strip at the top and bottom and then work towards the middle. I used a paper strip at the top and a sticker strip at the bottom and they're both straight in real life, it's my photo that's wonky!

The photo was matted and layer and then the embellishment clusters were added on either side.

And to complete a triangle another layered stack was added at the top of the page. The title gave me a few placement problems and was moved around a bit, but finally got lined up with the left side layers.

I adore this photo of the two generations, both totally engrossed in their chosen screen and completely unaware that I snapped it.

Papers: Cocoa Vanilla, Boys Rule
Stickers: Cocoa Vanilla, boys Rule; Doodlebug, Dragons Tails; Lilybeedesigns, Pinwheel labels; Kaisercraft; MAMBI chips; AC, Vicki Boutin
Alphas: AC Thickers, hugs; Simple Stories, You Are Here & Say Cheese

Enamel shapes: Shimelle, box of caryons; MME, Now & then
Ink: Mister Huey's Color Mists, dark calico

And keep crafting!
