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.

Vendepunkt

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

Let's Scrap sketch 5-28-14

A new sketch is revealed at Let's Scrap. This week it's a double pager with no less than five big laying photos. This was perfect for some of my photos from our trip to Rome.

Here is the sketch:


I didn't have papers that worked for a layering, so I used a stensil to make the layer under the photos. Instead of the tags I used a border chipboard from Dusty Attic.


I used a piece of kraft cardstock to back the title and stamped randomly on it and put some paint on the edges.


I wanted both a photo and a long journaling so I combined that on the left side. That piece is prepared like the piece above.

En fryd før øyet

Jeg har laget en LO med blomsterbilder. De ble tatt i mai 2012 på Dømmesmoen i Grimstad. LO'en er laget etter skisse 5-4-14 hos Let's Scrap, det er en av skissene i NSD's skisseutfordring og er mitt bidrag der.
Det ble en skikkelig vår-LO med papir fra mai-kitet fra Swirlydoos.
Med denne deltar jeg i månedens utfordring hos Scrappelyst - Vår.


De hvite bladene og blomstene er klip ut av samme mønsterark som jeg har brukt en stripe av under bildene.
Har brukt maling på to ulike stenciler på bakgrunnen.
