Scrapping Outback June "White with a twist" Challenge
The June "White with a twist" challenge at Scrapping Outback is to use the following image as inspiration:
It's a pretty awesome image, makes me want a mint thick shake with chocolate, yum.
Anyway, I chose a photo taken in Singapore last year, as it had a lot of greenery in it. I don't usually like working with green, but this one captured my imagination, and I had a lot of fun playing. I guess the overall design is ok, I don't think it is what I first envisaged.
I started with a Kaisercraft patterned paper to which I sprayed with Lindy's stamp gang, then stencilled using a Scrap FX stencil and texture paste, to create a tropical leafy feel. I rubbed some metallic lustre over this. My chipboard pieces are from Buzz and Bloom and I added Tim Holtz distress embossing powder to this. Under the photo is a range of scrap papers and some torn cardboard. I then added the whole layout to a piece of chipboard to frame it.
Thanks for looking at my layout and for any comments you may leave.
