Two for the boys.
Our August challenge is a nice one.
And a easy one.
Just use one of three collection.
Seaside Cottage, tranquility or Attic Charm.
My plan was to add three layouts , one for each of these colections.
But because beautiful Switzerland is overcrowded with tourist this saison....
I just coudnt get time enough to do anything creative.
So there was no time for the Attic Charm inspiration layout.
But when you look at the blog,
there has been lots of inspiration already with the Attic Charm collection
For my first layout I used the beautiful Seaside Cottage collection.
Perfect papers to scrap your beach pictures.
For a beachy and masculine feeling I used textured modeling paste,
in my background and on my chipboard.
First I colored the title with distress ink.
Than I added the texture paste with a pallette knife.
The seaside Flourish chipboard piece was first stippled with the paste.
Than I added different colors of embossing powder in the still wet paste.
I heated up just a few parts of the powder.
After it dryed here and there a little raw paste to give that beach feeling.
My second layout has more of a tender feeling.
I wanted a soft natural look.
In the background stamping with a blue color ink that matched perfect with the blue from the paper.
Softened up with white ink.
I love the Wild Field chipboard and I think it matched perfect with the stamped background.
I left it natural and just brushed on a little white ink to set some highlights.
The chipboard is totally flat on the paper, but because of the highlights it becomes depth.
The roses were left in their natural color, just got some white ink here and there.
To keep the page in that soft natural color I left the title just plain .
I hope you will find time to play along with our challenge, there are two more weeks left to join in.
Thank you for visiting the blog.
I hope you liked my post.
