The challenge for the rest of April over at the Studio Challenge Blog is to use your favourite things...so I did use lots of favourites, and had a go at being really inky and messy as I am loving that at the moment.
The shot is from a camping trip last year where the heavens opened as we were walking up a hill, so we all nipped into a little wood area, and whilst the kids were climbing trees we got them to stage a photo for us.
The papers are from Echo Parks Charming collection (which I am enjoying). The page actually started with me die cutting some chevrons (which went a little wrong as they were meant to be in a frame but my paper wasn't quiet in the right place so the frame was missing on one side), before I got to use the chevrons I did some misting. For the mists I used a prima square mask which I lay on the diagonal and then spritzed with some blue patina and light brown glimmer mist, and then some of the zingy green cosmic shimmer. I also added some drips of ink around the page too. I then stuck the chevrons on behind the photo, and once in place I added some gesso just smearing it across them with a card to add some texture. I then started the layering with little bits of paper and journal cards, and a doily. I used some of the EP stickers as I liked the film strip - I used the small black dots from this on the page too. I painted a dusty attic branch and hung some cameras from it with green twine. Added some washi take and metal embellishments, then used the EP stickers for the title as well as a type writer font too which I printed on white paper.
I really enjoyed playing with lots of different items for this page and getting all inky - if you want to join in with us then here is the link,
