I’ve been waiting to get scrapping for so long, I’ve already done 2 pages with my new kit. First is the challenge of threes: 3 patterned papers, 3 embellishments and a three word title:
I used a Shimelle sketch. I was puzzling over embellishments when Puddle Duck placed the large chipboard star next to the title. I remembered my new star diecut, shuffled the embellishments from the original sketch and it all fell into place.
The second page is for the CKC challenge 3: ombre.
It didn’t start with that challenge but I realised that I needed something between the photo and the words O Christmas Tree on the pp, because I hadn’t cut it in the right place and had already stuck it down. I was going to punch small snowflakes from the red rectangles and then scatter them on the page, but I couldn’t find my punch. I also struggled to find my vellum to take down the pattern behind the title, without obscuring it entirely. I really must stop and sort out my craft room, but there is so much inspiration about – new photos, new stash and challenges on the net that I have so many ideas for scrapbook pages. I just want to get on with them.
Talking of new stash, I used some new ink to stamp shimmering snowflakes, but they are quite hard to see. I bought two colours of VersaMark Dazzle watermark stamp pads. It seems quite sticky and takes a while to dry. Am I using it as intended or is it meant to be used with embossing powders? Have you used it?
