On Saturday I also completed the single page entry for the September Stick It Down – I kept pretty close to the original sketch but with actually less embellishments and only one photo. I chose the photo of my son climbing up on a climbing frame as it was adding to the diagonal lines of the page.
I used some of the paper from Shimelle’s Starshine (I love every piece of paper from that line!) and softened a lot of the paper used with linen distress ink to make it blend in with the wood grain background.
I added rub on butterflies that I had in my stash for ages, and used a stamp I made with my Silhouette stamping material saying ‘Explore’
I used nuvo dots (I hadn’t realised I had accidentally smudged one) which I think is a really great product and brought more at the crop! I also added some droplets of gold mist to finish it off.
It’s a pretty simple layout but I really enjoyed making it!
