Hi, Deb here with you today. I've been so inspired to create scraplets for so many of our holiday photos although they are suitable for a wide variety of pages.
I used the border word 'amazing' on this page along with one of the words from the set 'moments, memories'.
I started playing with some textures for these chipboards. Using gesso as the base, I applied it with a spatula to texturize the scraplet before adding paint.
To color the scraplet I used Tim Holtz distress paints in 3 colors, dabbing them on and then spritzing with water to blend lightly. The effect is a stunning and outstanding title.
One of the places we visited was an animal shelter. While these places may not be perfect, they do serve a purpose. The animals here were clean and well cared for and all had been rescued from the wild after accidents which had resulted in them being maimed and unable to fend for themselves.
Again, having fun with the gesso and using it with a stencil to create a background on the paper before building the rest of the page. A variety of techniques were used on the chipboard on this page. The 'lucky you' scraplet was painted white and finished with Rock Candy crackle paint. The background piece 'leaf litter' was painted with a mix of 3 different distress paints.
I love the versatility of these little arrows.
One last one for the day. An older scraplet was used here and the perfect title for the page.
Some of the Scraplets used on the above pages.
