Scrap Around the World--July

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."
 
Supplies: background paper from Prima; fussy-cut spaceship & robot paper from Bazzill; pink paper from Authentique; blue/doily paper from Crate; alphabet stickers from Doodlebug; star sticker negatives from Basic Grey; ribbons from Scrapbook Fantasies; stamps from My Mind's Eye; black ink from Hero Arts; yellow & purple inks from Clearsnap; chalk from Stampin' Up; Stickles & Liquid Pearls from Ranger; pen from Zig.



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.


I 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.
