Hello and Happy Wednesday!!
Today I am featured at Frosted Designs and Let's Scrap!! Today begins our newest sketch challenge at Let's Scrap!
I typically catch up on my son's scrapbook in the fall and winter since our activities slow down. Today I created a two-page scrapbook using our newest kit (We Are Family) and a sketch. We have an amazing zoo in Omaha, NE. Our newest attraction is the Sting Ray Pool. You can pet and feed the rays. They are very cute and show a lot of personality!
I grabbed a few sting ray photos along with Skyfari photos (a slefie of Tanner and I and a photo of Mike and Tyler in the car behind us).
When I have several photos I like following a sketch - especially when I don't have a lot of time.
Here was my original idea designed on my Cameo. All good ideas evolve! I wasn't sure what to do with the leaves until I looked a little further into my kit.
I used Carta Bella SCRIPT DOTS paper from our We Are Family kit. I order an extra set of papers each month so I can put together 2 page layouts.
I used brown and green Miracles mixed with Glossy Accents to paint the wood tree branch. Above I mixed the green powder.
I accidentally broke off a piece of the branch - no worries I will adhere it down in place.
I used Glossy Accents to adhere the tree branch to my layout.
I used my Cameo to cut out some more branches and painted Miracles on them as well.
I used the Miracles once more. I thinned them down a bit with extra Glossy Accents and painted the banner flags.
I cut out my titles, City Zoo fence and tabs with my Cameo. I inked my papers with my black PITT artist pen big brush. I used a couple of stickers from the kit and a bit of washi tape.
