I wanted to scrap this wonderful photo from our vacation two weeks ago but I knew I wanted to give it more of an artistic touch than just with scrapbook paper. I grabbed a piece of Ken Oliver's Water Media Paper - available at Canvas Corp Brands here. This heavy duty paper has one textured side and one smooth. I opted for the textured side and got out my water color paints.
I decided I wanted to paint the background making it an extension of the photo. I am not an artist but I think I was able to achieve the effect.
I kept the title simple by printing it on vellum and added just one flower.
This was fun and I encourage you to give it a try. This paper holds up well to mists and Color Bursts as well.
I hope you stop over at Canvas Corp Brands to check out this paper as well as all the other papers, burlap and mists. You will not regret it!
I don't know about you, but my family has been glued to the Olympics. Makes it difficult to get much of anything else done, well except maybe SCRAPPING. I spent the afternoon putting together this layout. I used the sketch from Sketchnscrap
And here is mine
We were so happy that Jen and Shawn got to visit the cottage for a couple of days in July. It is a long trip from phoenix but there is nothing better than being on a lake in northern Michigan in the summer. We actually had a houseful of family and friends and enjoyed talking, laughing, fishing, boating, etc.
This Kaisercraft Sandytoes Kit had everything I needed.
I am on an artistic journey but I do not know which path to take. As I was pondering this, I created a journal page based on a quote I saw.
I think this sums up my recent experiences. Even though I try to follow a certain path, I end up making or taking my own trail. I used a map as my background paper. I have different paints, stamps and stencils.
