BEADSI must confess to totally loving the May Kraftboard Challenge over at Kraft+! The colours and tone of the Kraftboard totally matched my photos and memories of my time in New Orleans, and so I really wanted to make a second page. Here is a reminder of how yummy the Kraftboard truly is!
My background work for this one was very simple - I tinted some texture paste with Gelatos to create the beautiful orange colour. I stencilled it using one quarter of a 12x12 Kaisercraft stencil that had tiny circles. I also put a smear of the paste at the bottom of my title. Initially I wanted to stamp directly into my paste here, but this time I let it dry too much (d'oh) and wasn't able to get a clean impression. So, I put some Glossy Accents over the dried texture paste so it would give a shiny surface to stamp upon with StazOn. I also painted the Glossy Accents over the circles as well.
I have matted both of my photos on orange cardstock and distressed the edges. I used my awesome circles stamp and StazOn to stamp three circles randomly within the texture paste areas. I found some awesome blue ribbon with polka dots on it to make some circles that I then crossed over into figure-8's for some more dimension to the page.
I dug through my old Creative Memories stash to find the awesome blue patterned paper with circles on it, and used that to layer up my photos a bit more. Then I used 6mm and 4mm 'Pumpkin' Sprinkles, and 3mm 'Sapphire' Sprinkles randomly over the texture paste circles to add a little bling. My final touch was journalling with a 0.5 Copic Multiliner.
With this wonderful Kraft+ Challenge Blog, I just may get all of my USA photos scrapped one day!!
