Finishing off scrapbook pages

Back to scrapping… and finally finished the pages started at Helen’s class a few weeks ago. The mixed media approach she took really inspired me… along with many Missy Widden YouTube videos I’ve been glued to recently! 

So these were both using the packaging technique to add watery ink to the background cardstock and then using the Cupcakes and Carousels designer series paper to create different layers.  

So the first one I did change up a bit by reducing the size and layering it onto the Crumb Cake cardstock. 

I also added lots of stickers and rub ons and little word embellishments. As it’s a picture of men (my dad, and my two Dutch dad’s – it’s a long story!) I decided against adding too many embellishments. 

I couldn’t resist the little making memories tags with brads though… or the pointing finger stickers…

So that’s my slightly more masculine page… now for my girlie one… 

I adore this pic of my princess and me having some fun time on the floor.  The layout Helen designed worked well with this larger image. 

I added lots of layers underneath the photo and found candi dots that worked with the colour scheme.  I love the rub on words and the fabric title sticker I used too. It’s great diving into the stash of stickers and finding things you have forgotten you owned. Especially helpful as March is meant to be my no stash buying month. I need to save for my hols! 

So happy to have done some scrapping again… thanks Helen for getting me inspired again. So nice also to scale up from ATC size to 12×12 just for a change. 

Happy crafting!
