Hi Gang – today I am sharing another quick and easy Scrapbook Page using products from Lindy’s. I think sometimes we forget that Scrapbooking is all about the photos and recording the memory – telling a story and making a page for our albums. I am a storyteller, a journaler, a list maker and a doodler! I scrapbook my favourite photos rather than every photo and event but I always Journal on my page – you probably won’t see it publicly … I usually add it after I have photographed it … but its always there! Even if the page is all Arty & Inky … the journaling still needs to go on somewhere – even if it’s on the back!
This page is a super important one for me and I have decided to share the journaling with you this time! It’s not a perfect photo – it’s a little blurry – but its all about the memory and the importance of the event.
Fiona and I were away teaching at a Papercraft Expo in Melbourne and I spotted a familiar image on the desk as I was chatting to the organisers … OH. MY. GOODNESS!!!! It was my artwork! I was sooo surprised and incredibly thrilled … my little bit of Lindy’s artwork I created for a card was being used for the advertising flyer for the Brisbane Scrapbook & Papercraft Expo … Australia’s biggest & best Scrapbook event! I raced back to tell my best friend and to snap that all-important selfie … couldn’t wipe that smile off my face all weekend!
This page was created using three colours from the Magical Shaker range! I started with some super nice 13Arts Gesso and a stencil on some Marshmallow Cardstock.
My Lindy’s Shakers are a little worse for wear as I tape them closed with washi tape when traveling to ensure I don’t have any spillage.
I mixed a small amount with water in my little palette then I gave my cardstock a light spray with water then used a brush to ‘puddle’ on the Magicals colours starting with Lederhosen Laurel
While it’s still wet, I gave it a spray with water, tilted the cardstock and encouraged the colour to run off the page.
Next, I took some die cuts and coloured them in the same three colours as well as adding some stamping to the background using Archival Ink in Teal & Blue.
My photo is mounted on a combination of Gel Print paper, an old map & dictionary paper – the perfect colours to compliment the background and the photo. The 13Arts wood veneer title has been coloured with Guten Tag Teal. and Bavarian Blue.
Here are a few close-ups for you.
By the way … the artwork on the flyer is using Magicals in Caribbean Blue and Hibiscus Rose with Obviously Black Embossing Powder … this image has now become my logo.
