Okay so this layout is almosttttt too late! I almost missed my own challenge! lol
I did something totally different this week, it was definitely a challenge for me!
The challenge this week over at Lasting Memories is:
"Leaving Footprints Behind"
We want to see some kind of footprints on your layout. Idea's: people, animal tracks, birds, etc. as long as it leaves footprints :)
For my layout I used all paper from Graphic 45 and that was a challenge in and of itself! The papers are so beautiful I didn't want to use them or cut them up, I was scared! lol But what d'ya know, I ended up grunging and distressing and ripping and tearing them ha!
Here is what I did:
I cut the big shape in the background from CC Lacy Labels and distressed the edges with TH distress ink in Walnut Stain. I also distressed and ripped the edges of the striped paper with my scissors. I fussy cut the entire 12x12 page in half to get the zigzag of flowers out of the middle of the page (ahhh) I was so scared I was going to mess up and ruin the pretty paper!
I used a die cut of TH clock dies out of chip board that I inked and sprayed with black, gold, silver, and walnut ink. Then topped of with a pearly brad. For my main attraction (my footprints) I took a baby footprint stamp with both feet and placed a piece of tape over the other foot whenever I was stamping with one. First I stamped with distress ink Walnut stain and then I went over it and stamped with embossing ink and embossed clear embossing powder over each foot to look like they were walking across my page. I reallyyyyy like how good these turned out and using the embossing powder really made them stand out since they are black on black almost
I also fussy cut my little saying and the lock and key from another page, ouchh! But I love it. I slid the key in the keyhole and it fit perfectly so I kept it that way lol I like it! My flowers are cut from a flower punch and stacked two flowers on top of each other and a pearl in the center. I made them dimensional by curling each petal around a paintbrush end then staggered the petals when I stacked them
I used some tiny Prima letters and some K&Co Grand Adhesion letters. I have never found the perfect project to use these busy letters on until now and I'm glad I had them! :)
I hope you will come play along you have until this Saturday June 2 for your chance to win 5 digi's from DigiDarla!
