I've been a bit slack in keeping up with my scrapping lately, and my self-challenge to scrap 100 layouts this year. I am getting close to my target, but the end of the year is rapidly approaching! Today's layout came about as I had a left over photo from a recent mini album project that I didn't want to waste.
I started with a base of the Typeset Specialty DSP and then used the Dots Decorative Mask, my Lost Lagoon inkpad and marker and a sponge dauber to create a background. I tilted the mask a bit so that the dots weren't too evenly lined up and then I randomly daubed a few, traced a few with the marker, and on some dots I did both. I wanted a fairly rough look to the background. I then stamped over the top with some of the stamps from Kinda Eclectic.
In a couple of places I punched the side of the SDSP with my trusty Spiral Border Punch. I'm so pleased that this punch has made a come back - it was one of my old favourites that I could never bear to part with.
I wanted to do a little journalling, but I couldn't work out where to place it, so I ended up going with the old hidden journalling trick by creating a tag to pop in behind the photo. Easy!
Bye for now,
