I hope that May had been good to you all, so far and isn't it going so fast? I can't believe it's already time for me to share my next post with you all and today, I thought I'd do something a little different to share with you all and here it is, my inky scrapbook layout.
The layout started life as a piece of white 12" x 12" which I spritzed with Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions Ink Sprays in Lime and Vibrant Turquoise. I then added strips of Symphony Tissue Tape onto the background before using the Harlequin Crafter's Workshop Template and inked areas of my cardstock with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, before then adding some Gesso through the template and some splats of Shabby Shutters Distress stain, straight from the bottle.
I then used the Grid Background stamp and stamped onto the background paper with black Archival Ink. Next, I used a Manilla tag and applied some Shabby Shutters and Broken China Distress Stain onto my craft mat, before dragging the tag through it to give a good inky coverage. I then used the Circle Grid Crafter's Workshop Template and applied more Broken China Distress Ink through it. I inked up one of the stamps from the Borders A6 #2 stamp plate and stamped directly onto the tag with black Archival Ink. I then stamped London from the London stamp plate, onto the tag and added the word "calling" which I typed on the computer. I then attached the tag, together with my photo onto my spritzed background and added some twine and a Tim holtz Idea-ology piece.
I made the flower using Tim Holtz's Tattered Florals die, spritzed with some more of the Dylusions Lime Green Ink Spray and added a button in the centre. I finally stamped "Memories" from the Journaling Words II and added a Tim Holtz Muse Token and used some Alphaparts Newsprint for "2009".
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my scrapbook layout and I really hope you liked it!
See you all again soon and don't forget that we still have the Spots and Stripes Challenge running until the end of this month and we'd love to see your creations!!
Bye for now!
