More Convention Display Board projects for today! (Remember to click on the button above to link to all the other display stampers on our Pinterest board)
This is not my normal Wednesday post. I’m taking a week off from Freshly Made Sketches but please stop over and see all that the team has created. The sketch from Rita is fabulous too!
I hope you excuse my absence over the last few days. I finally took a little down time for the summer. The family and I went on a small vacation last week and then I rolled right back into a trip for work. I thought it best to take week off from the challenge and stamp for all kinds of upcoming things. More on that in the next few days. Until then, I have some of my projects from the Display Boards to continue sharing.
I have two scrapbook pages for you today. And I love them both!! The first one is done in the style of my Artisan 2013 friend Cathy Caines. I love her use of patterns and colors on white so I tried to see what I could do with that. You know what? I found it really freeing to just start layering patterns until things seemed right! I started with the stencils from the Build a Banner SImply Created Kit (the new Dots & Stripes would work great too). I sponged on Bermuda Bay into the circles. Then using the Dotty Angles triangles stamp, I stamped on Real Red. I purposely didn’t fully ink them to match the look of the stenciling. Then some bits and pieces just started to get put on. A piece of card stock. A banner from Amazing Birthday. Sequins (LOVE these). The date using the Alphabet Rotary Stamp. And finally the sentiment using the big one from Amazing Birthday. The banner part is hand cut and the arrow is from the On Film Framelits. I added a little pop of gold DSP (Gold Soiree) behind the picture and then added this picture of my oldest. Needless to say the color palette came from the colors in the picture! It is from Sea World a few years ago and I love this one!
Again on this one I started with the picture (that is truthfully the only way I can create scrapbook pages). This one was taken in the Butterfly Pavilion at the Museum of Natural History. This butterfly came and landed on my youngest’s head and just stayed there. So the Kinda Eclectic set seemed like the perfect accent. I used prints from the Moonlight Paper Stack and again just started layering. I stamped the butterflies onto White Filter Paper and also some of the the circles from the set. The butterflies were punched out using the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches (put a piece of card stock behind to make the punching easier). The I tore the edges of the circle piece for extra texture. The sentiment uses the Alphabet Rotary Stamp again (I know I have said it but it bears repeating….this rotary stamp is awesome!).
I hope you like these sweet pages as much as I do. Both different but put together in much the same way. I will be back later this week. Until then, hope your day is great!
