A card and a layout for Let's Scrap

Last week I had a card for the weekly sketch at Let's Scrap, sketch 8-20-14.
It's a birthdaycard and I have used some old patterned papers.

 The frame is a diecut which I have embossed with different embossingpowders.

For the challenge #192 I made this layout for inspiration. The challenge is a bingochart and I chose to use arrows, handwritten journaling, stamps and twine. It's also a must to use one of the tutorials from the forum, and I choose to make my own twine. The sketch to use is 3-3-10.

Here is the twine, both a piece I've bought and some homemade.

For the layers and texture I have used some stensils and different painting and some stamping.

In the upper right corner I put a large stamped arrow pointing at the photo.

This challenge is going on until next Thursday (4. september), so why not jump over to Let's Scrap and join in?

These two projects are also my two last projects for Let's Scrap as a DT. This term is over in just a few days, and I'm saying thanks for a great time.

A new sketch at Let's Scrap

This weeks sketch at Let's Scrap have both large and small photos and lot of space for journaling:

I still have a lot of photos from our trip to Rome and this time I used some photos taken in the church San Clemente. I love this church and always enjoy coming back. The most interesting parts are not seen on these photos, since you are not allowed to take photos downstairs. But under the church of today you can see the remainings of an older church and under it, there is some ruins from earlier times. This I tell about in the journaling.

Here are some closeups. First of the title. The letters are colored with gelatos (as the circle under it) and a bit of Lumin'Arte silks paint (golden).

At the bottom I have used lots of Prima Say it in Crystals:

Let's Scrap 7-9-14

It's Wednesday and a new sketch is up at Let's Scrap.

I'm still working through my photos from a trip to Rome some years ago and this week I have some photos taken at Trajans market. Who said that a modern shoppingsenter with over 100 shops is something the last century?
Trajans market hosted about 150 different shops and offices!

For this page I have used stuff from the June kit from Swirlydoos together with some craft paper and some alphachipboard and alphastickers from my stash.

I've used two stencils from Prima, one with distress ink on the background and the other up front with some paint.

As usually I had to add some handwritten journaling, telling about the place.

Sketch 6-25-14 at Let's Scrap

A new sketch is up at Let's Scrap.
This time it's this twopage sketch:

I first thought about making a collage of photos for the big photo on the left side. But when I looked through my photos I decided to put two and two photos together for two of the photos on the right side and use a big photo on the left side.
The photos are from Colosseum in Rome and my take on the sketch is this:

Most papers and embellishments are from the June kit from Swirlydoos.

The chipboard I found a year or two ago and have had laying around for these photos. I used some gesso on it and two colors of embossingpowder (from Lindys Stamp Gang) and finished with rubbing some distress ink on it.

I used som wood veneer and in the kit we also got this awesome rank with small bows.

RR tag for June at Swirlydoos

I'm in for the Round Robin tag at Swirlydoos this month.
My week was week three and I followed two very talented girls, Maggi and Peggy. They had a lot of layers and embellishments on there tags. Bothe had used some frames and colored them. I didn't have any frame to use like that, but in a kit almost two years back we got a sheet with frames. I found the leftovers from that kit and fussy cut three of the frames.
If you want to see what the others made go to Swirlydoos.
This is my tag:

Let's Scrap sketch 6-11-14

A new sketch is up at Let's Scrap:

I have used photos from St. Peters Basilica in Rome. I wanted to have information about the basilica on the page and near the photos, so I used a lot of textstrips for my journaling.

I used the italian name in the title.

I've used stamps, stensils, inks, gesso and mist ong the background.

On this layout there is not much embellishments, just a single flower and some bling.

I've got all the patterned papers and embellishments in kits from Swirlydoos.

Mai er over og med det også NSD-utfordringene hos Let's Scrap. Jeg fikk ikke gjort så mange, men klarte å fullføre skisseutfordringen. Har vist min løsning på den første skissen, men ikke de resterende fire.

Her er min løsning på skisse 5-2-14, som jeg gjorde om til en dobbel LO ved å speilvende skissen til den venstre siden.

Bildene er fra en togtur på Setesdalsbanen sommeren 2007.

Jeg brukte et par ulike stempler noen steder på sidene. De to store sommerfuglene er klippet ut av et ark, mens de små er stanset ut med en punch.

Endestasjonen og vendepunktet for togturen er Røykene, der disse bildene ble tatt og det oppholdet forteller teksten litt om.

Papirer og stempler er fra Swirlydoos månedskit.sw
