Water Slide Fun

Hi Everyone,

Today’s post features a scrapbook layout created for the Get It Scrapped article about using woodland creatures in your scrapbook pages.  This was a little different for me as there are not heaps of traditional woodland creatures here in Australia and I also took inspiration from one of the pieces on Debbie’s pinterest board.  You can check out the inspiration by hopping over to the Get it Scrapped article.  This layout is about the fun my kids had playing with a double water slide in the garden at their grandparents house.  This garden is frequently visited by birds and even a rabbit whilst we were there.

To create my layout I used the Dylusions Spray Ink Fresh Lime as a watercolour to paint my background.  I diluted the colour using additional water.  When this had dried I inked around the edges of the layout using distress ink to create a vignette effect, leaving the lightest area in the middle of the page.  I then sponged pine needle distress ink through the leaf stencil around the edges of the page.  The trees were hand drawn and inked with gathered twigs distress ink to create a frame around the page.

The photograph, title and embellishments were centred in page with the woodland creatures and other embellishments framing the photograph.  The woodland creatures were positioned so they were looking towards the photograph.  The layers in the background and all the elements on the page serve to draw the eye directly to my photograph.

Thanks for stopping by,
