Here is my Technique (paint) & Theme (travel) post for this month... it's live over at Scrapping Frenzy too!
This is a couple of pictures that I took when my husband and I were flying to New Jersey last fall. One of us on the plane and one of a lake that to me, kinda looked like an outline of the US. It’s silly, I know… but I thought it made for a interesting picture! HAHA!
I had the chipboard flower that was already painted, so I thought I would make the brackets match it, or at least the best I could. I took some plain chipboard swirly brackets and some gray acrylic paint and went to town.
The brackets were still a little too dark, so I took my silver inkpad and, using a foam brush, “painted” some of the silver ink on top. It gave it just enough sheen and made it stand out off the page a little.
For my title, the black letters were too dark with my background being black, but the silver letters were too bright and shiny and took away from the layout. So, I used my silver ink pad and foam brush and painted my letters with the silver ink, to get the color I wanted for this layout.
I cut circles out out my patterned Foof-A-La papers and some cardstock and lined them across the bottom of the pictures. I outlined the cardstock ones in Stardust Stickles. Also in the Foof-A-La papers, I cut a strip of arrows and placed down the left side of my pictures. I used the Stardust Stickles on some of the arrows to dress it up a little bit.
Here are a few close-ups:
