1 2 3 challenge Blue masks and together
This combination inspired me, especially as I have just bought a new sunray mask from Studio Calico.
I misted using Tattered angels glimmer mist in turquoise on a blue paper.
This gave a subdued yet defined sunray.
I found an 8x8 patterned sunray paper which I've used as my mat.
I've placed white netting, blue foil punched out plus a grey and black patterned paper strips.
Over that , I have added an assortment od embellishments:-
A blue paper clip shaped like an S
2 brads featuring blue stars.
A chipboard arrow.
A flair button featuring a male and female symbol.
Earlier this month, I experimented making my own enamel dots by melting beads in the oven.
It worked!!! I've used some blue enamel dots on this layout plus a lasso of twine (also blue) around the flair and the dots.
They are adhesive on both sides, so I lay the patterned paper down, then reversed the letters and cut them our with a craft knife.
The finished effect harks back to the mat behind the photos.
Here is the finished layout
If someone asked me to define my scrapping style I would say this is pretty close.
No flowers, lots of other embellishments, a bit of misting plus some interesting papers and matting.
While I like clusters I think they are sometimes over the top so prefer to spread my items around the photo to highlight each element.
