Scrapping Outback May challenge
For the May challenge at Scrapping Outback, the white with a twist challenge, with inclusion of chipboard, is to be inspired by this image:
I love this colour combo, it is so fresh, and I have used it before in my scrapping.
I chose this photo of myself and my friend Vicki, who came to Melbourne for a visit. We visited this quirky and quaint cafe for morning tea, for their specialty - scones - each scone is different, and has a name, such as Mabel, Mary, Hazel - very cute. The cafe is decorated with quaint retro decorations, so out of the 50's. So we had our scones and tea/coffee, and then wondered around the cafe, which had a pink caravan out the back, where one could partake of scones, chooks and an old outhouse - useable. Out the front was a bike, and a photo booth - so PHOTO OPPORTUNITY, lol. It was an enjoyable day.
Anyway, I digress. for my layout, I stencilled with a TCW stencil and texture paste, then spread the aqua colour using Radiant Rain dauber, added a few flicks of red dylusions and green glimmer mist. A touch of stamping with Stampin up doily stamps, some cotton thread, and my decorations. The chipboard pieces are RW laser cuts, they've been in my stash for a while, but I really think they were meant for this layout, lol. I coloured them with wink of Stella. The papers and die cuts are Crate paper. I added a few small beads around as well.
I love the quirkiness to this layout, as much as I loved the quirky cafe. Will be taking more visitors there for some scones and tea.
Thanks for looking at my layout, and any comments you may leave.
