First Camping trip




Here is the current sketch at Sketchabilities and my take on it (I rotated the page by 90 degrees). I have lots of photos taken from our recent overnight camping trip and this was a great excuse to do a multiphoto page. I had a lot of fun playing with my inks and pastes. I soaked the piece of muslin in modpodge and adhered it to the page incorporating lots of folds and crinkles. I sprayed it with two colours of OA 'sprinklers' and continued the sprays over a masks onto the background cardstock.
For a rustic look you can't go past corrugated cardboard and I used this to mount my photos.


The rest of the page came together easily. I used the new Teresa Collins 'He Said/She Said papers and embellishments. A little handwritten journaling completed the page :)
