Remember this Moment - Kreative Koncepts June sketch challenge
When I first saw this sketch at Kreative Koncepts I was intregued but not sure that I would be brave enough to try it myself. But I kept on thinking about it - and today I was in the mood for a challenge so I bit the bullet and gave it a try.
I used spray inks to make the triangle shape in the background. I sprayed several colours in a vaguely triangular shape onto baking paper. Then I pressed my white cardstock sheet into the wet ink. It worked fairly well, but I needed to make the triangle shape more obvious so I masked off the background with paper scraps and sprayed lightly over the whole page. This left an effect that I was happy with.
I used strips of washi tape, random stamped images and chipboard circles to add interest and shape to my page.
The chipboard title is a Kaisercraft product and was the perfect sentiment for my page. I took the photo on my son Adam's 20th birthday. His brother Chris had given him the wooly jumper as a gift and we noticed that Chris's own jumper (which I had given to him as an Easter present ) was very similar. So the photo idea was born! I heat embossed the title with green embossing powder and inked the edges.
Thanks for visiting my blog and do check out this challenge at Kreative Koncepts. Have a great weekend!
