Hello, everyone! Did you get a chance to create something over the weekend? Just as I had hoped, this past weekend I was able to play with paper a bit. I played along with the June challenge at Scrap Around The World to create a layout about waffle fries, of all things! The layout is called "Best Fries in the Universe," and the journaling says: "It is true. These are the best fries in the universe. Our must-have menu item at Zobota Café."
I used the mood board and sketch from Scrap Around the World. The muted colors from the mood board were influential in my choice of background, and I added pops of darker colors in the foreground, for contrast. What I liked most on the mood board was the abundance of ribbon--for example, ribbons holding up the keys, ribbons wrapped around the hearts, etc. This inspired me to use lots of ribbon on my layout.
In particular I used ribbon to make the "engine fire" of the fussy-cut spaceship. I was, as you see, also very inspired by all the stars on the SATW sketch.
I stamped this robot, then gave him a dab of Liquid Pearls for his nose. I also enhanced his eyes with Stickles.
My fussy-cut robot also got enhanced by Liquid Pearls and Stickles.
also used Liquid Pearls in another way. I recycled the negatives from some old stickers, by using them as stencils to paint star embellishments on the page. I also added lots
of other little touches--stamping in yellow with bubble wrap, stamping
in purple with a gear stamp, shading with chalk, and adding more dabs of
Liquid Pearls and Stickles, particularly on the ribbon strips.
I am a bit of a geek at heart, and any time I can use space-themed items on a layout, I am a happy camper. I hope that you have had fun viewing my light-hearted layout. And I hope I haven't made you too hungry for waffle fries! Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog.
