I have a special project to share today that I made with Layers of Color Clear Art Stamps and Art Stencils. I enjoy scrapbooking, but often have a hard time deciding where to start. I knew I wanted to scrap these pictures of our youngest when we are on vacation last fall up in Virginia. Our older two are not as interested in play grounds and swing sets, but Jeb set his eyes on the metal ladder and knew immediately it was something he must conquer (he was also copying his older brother, Dean).
For this page, I started first with the Natural Flourish Art Stencil on opposite corners of a 8 1/2 x 11 page (my favorite to scrap). I used Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy Distress ink for the art stenciling and stamped some leaves from Nature Walk using Memento Desert Sand. I created a journaling tab by cutting a piece of Natural Ivory cardstock and rounding the top corners. However, not wanting it to slide underneath the center picture and get lost I added a damask image from Touch of Elegance stamped on dark
brown cardstock and added some sticky nail heads.
Recently while at my LSS I picked up some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Pinecone) and so spritzed some on my page (before adding the photos, lol!) It gives it a nice shimmer/speckle look.
Here are two close up pictures of my page:
Sorry this post was so long...this was such a fun page to create that I wanted to tell you all about it. Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful day!
