Awesome - 123

You might remember back on this post here I mentioned that I attended a scrap day this month. On said day, I completed almost 4 pages, well this page was that was almost completed.


I ended up leaving it alone on the day as it just wasn't working for me. Over this month it has sat on my scrap desk starring at me. I'd move/put something on it every day but something was just off. And to be honest, I'm still not 100% happy with it.

I was inspired to scrap this snap shot of my daughter Chloe by the July challenge at 123 challenge blog. To take part there are 3 stipulations, use the specified colour, a certain word and a defined technique. This month bright colours, word awesome and technique arrows.

Now when someone talks about bright colours, my mind tends to go straight toward Rangers Dylusion Mists. The most vibrant intense colours around. So that is where I started this page. First I used the purple, pink and yellow spray in sections over the page, then to bring them together I sprayed white over a heart Heidi Swapp mask.

The word awesome has been used twice, both on a piece of flair in the bottom right and as the title towards the bottom left. The title is a sticker from the Simple Stories DIY Boutique collection, I outlined in black to make it stand out better.

For the arrows I simply rounded up all the arrow stamps I have and used them randomly pointing towards the focus photo. I have also used n Elle's Studio stamp 'summed up in one word' which fits so perfectly.

The patterned paper is from the Glitz design and is a perfect match to the shirt see is wearing.
Another flair button and some more DIY Boutique stickers appear around the photo.

So that's this page for now. Maybe I will come back to it again one day.
