Orange Paperie & Co July Challenge...& a post up at SCRAP365
Question. Do YOU do double pages? I did when I first started scrapping. But not so much these days. HOWEVER, John over Orange Paperie & Co has thrown down the challenge.....which [being a really BIG challenge, in more than one sense of the word!!!] I, of course, took up.
The paper comes from Stampin' Up, but has been gessoed over...then I added [paint tinted] texture paste with a 3rd EYE mask...then I added some mists & sprays...then I added some Distress ink with the same mask! As you do......
You can see the background a little better here & below...& my journaling...!!!!
I planned to put 8 photos on the double---but I only ended up with 7. Still, not too bad! And that date stamp above? Just occasionally it stamps soooo well that you don't need to do a series of stamping:)
This photo I cut in half. I like that idea....the little cameras I've used & clip are from RAINBOW SPLENDOUR...the locator from a prize over at Scrapstuffz, & the little blue strip is from Sandi T!
Below is a flair I got given from my lovely scrappy friend Sandra Scott....sooo nice I used TWO......
....but that doesn't surprise you, does it???!!!! And then I decided I, myself, needed some flair....so thank you to Ali P from Scrap365:
And one more closie, 'cos I had a bit of a tongue-in-cheek moment with the sentiment here [seeing as it's winter atm!]:
...& to show you it even gets cold in Cairns!
Thanks so much for looking. I'm not sure I've fallen in love with doing doubles, but I must say, they're a fabulous way of scrapping holiday photos!
GOODIES USED & THANKS TO:
