Here is the second page that I have created using the awesome 'Crazy Monday' August kit. I based it on the current sketch at Creative Scrappers:
I had intended to use a large star element as in the sketch but somehow I couldn't get past adding layer after layer of gorgeous embellishments from the 'Crate Paper' ephemera pack in the kit. They truly are gorgeous and co-ordinate so well together!
I love this photo of my youngest kiddies having a blast together at the local playground. They look so happy. I chose a primarily yellow and blue colour scheme to reflect the mood of the day. The cute cloud paper, which I sprayed with yellow ink using a sunburst mask, made a perfect background for the page. I journaled on a tag which I mounted on top of this cute clip-board die-cut (both also from the ephemera bag). The word 'laughter' was cut from another sheet of patterned paper.
I adhered to the sketch for my title - keeping it large and spread along the bottom of the photo block. I used the gold 'Thickers' from the kit. When I had adhered them to my page the colour was a little too bright for the look I wanting to create so I swiped a little white distress paint over the top of each letter to tone down the glitz a little. This is a great way to lighten the colour of most elements and make them blend into the page a little better.
I completed the page with a little stamping and inking.
