Hi Guys. This month Selena asked me (Marcia) to work with the
Wild Adventure kit. It is absolutely fabulous!!
I am really excited to see where my adventure takes me haha.
For this first layout I did a single as my week didn't quite go as planned.
To start, for me I always look at the paper and then find a page sketch that I want to try out for inspiration. I use a lot of page maps!
Next was the photos. My adventure was going to be camping 2 years ago but something got me nostalgic and I looked through old photos. Low and behold I had some from my first trip to Banff in 1997. Granted the photos aren't the best quality but they are a great memory.
My next step was to cut up a pepsi can. This became my mountains on the layout. I embossed them with a pattern and I also used the shabby blue embossing powder to give them a snowy look.
Next I used the green embossing powders in a shade from my photo to make a couple of trees. I started by cutting them out and using a random swirl folder to add dimension (only 1 made it to this page).
I used my Frame Punch Board to make the blue frame and used the left overs for the corners on the other photo.
I used a die to make the banner journal spot as I have one. But, you could cut one with scissors.
Once all of my elements were ready, out came the tape and down they went.
I added a Tim Holtz arrow (double popped up) and popped up the blue frame photo. My title is also popped up and pretty simple as I usually can't think of anything catchy to call the pages.
I had random words for rest of the title.
I used the jewels from the kit as well in the top right corner.
I really, really like colour so I used my alcohol inks to change the jewels.
Well making a mess doing this I wished I had alcohol markers to make it easier!! Thanks for sharing this adventure with me. I can't wait to get busy with the rest of the papers and see what happens. Stay tuned.
