It is so great to be sharing another layout with you this month. I am working with the challenges over at the CSI challenge blog, make sure you pop over and check out the crime scenes.
My layout today solves Case number 365. The moment I saw the picture prompt I knew I needed to scrap a wonderful memory of a road trip to Central Queensland a few years ago.
I couldn’t go past the Road Trip file to feature on the page and grunged it up in a pretty way (well my version of pretty) by using water colour and pinkish paste over the cut file and finished off with inking the edges in black.
Here are a few close-ups
To see more of how I built this layout I would love it if you popped on over to YouTube to watch the vid.
Case Solved! I would love it if you have a go at this month challenge!
Thanks for stopping in today I hope you have a great creative week.
I cut the Road Trip title design from white cardstock and then backed the word Trip and the letter R in Road with some patterned paper. I chose to use the cool Let’s Wander collection by Vicki Boutin together with the cut file for this layout. Once it was backed, I added craft foam underneath and adhered the cut file down to some Kraft cardstock. I placed the road part of the design down the bottom of the page to change it up a little.
I adhered the photo to the left of the page overlapping the road and tucked into the title, the photo is of myself and 3 friends away on a little scrap retreat. My friend Linda loves mo-peds so I just had to add the small pink one above the photo. I also tucked in a tab with a sticker on the left of the photo and a heart sticker just below the photo.
At the top of the title, I tucked in one of the large map looking die-cuts, a chipboard pin and a chipboard phrase to help tell the story. On the right of the title, next to the ‘d’ in road, I added a Charm’s Creations large handmade map marker and layered a chipboard map marker on top.
The large die-cut piece was the perfect piece to add to the bottom of the title, the car looks like it is driving on the road and the banner on the car sits out over the top of the title, I love how that looks! I also added the sunglasses die-cut and another chipboard phrase and some stickers in this area.
Lastly I stamped the date stamp of the day the photo was taken and I trimmed down the Kraft cardstock and matted the whole thing with the pink cardstock. I also hand drew a border around the edge of the Kraft cardstock using a black journal pen.
