091412 My Love/Hate Relationship w/Wet Techniques
Have a lot of things on my scrapping list - BPC Festival, ScrapHappy Project Runway Challenge, CKC Vintage View kit to use up + September sketches & challenges, and preparing October LOAD for ScrapHappy. It's all keeping me inspired!
Funny how I like it better this morning than I did last night (isn't that usually the case!) but most of what is on the background is remedial scrapping. Some of those sequins cover ink blobs (bad blogger moment - no pics :~) No other way to deal with them, and of course, I had already sewn & glued & made permanent the rest of the layout before I got to the splatters/misting stage...methinks this is the crux of the matter! I think we have a BREAKTHROUGH.
This is the latest misstep in my "wet scrapping" journey:
Oops - poor Kitty got splattered...I don't really mind it on these goofy pictures,
but again it is all about the timing of these wet techniques.
And there's my counterfeited kraft frame & button!
This was my attempt to counterfeit the Studio Calico "Take Note - Protractor" paper in the September CKC kit. I thought this vintage embelli was perfect, and added the stitching across the page with that lovely variegated rayon thread I have been using from time to time. Very happy with the effect.
Here is the September CKC sketch this layout came from:
