Grace x 2

You know you are addicted to scrapping when you go to drive 17 km in search of a wifi connection to post for a challenge. Yes, sad but true.  The worst part... said wifi I drove in search of was actually not working this weekend, so all was in vain (I missed the KK Colour Challenge 26 deadline... sigh). I am now posting that I am home from vacation.

This selfie photo layout was inspired by the Colour Challenge 26 at Kreative Koncepts and the July sketch challenge over at Once Upon a Sketch.  I really played with this one, using oodles of techniques and media.

Supplies: cardstock (Canadian Scrapbooker Super Stock), Gesso (Golden), Glimmer Mists (Tattered Angels), Tim Holtz Distress ink, stickles, & Archival ink (Ranger), whipped spackle, gelatos, and PITT Artist Stamper's Big Brush (Faber-Castell), stencils (Tim Holtz and Prima), stamps (KaiserCraft and MME), patterned paper (Crate Paper), flowers (Prima, Petaloo, Recollections, and Michaels), letter stickers (Recollections and Prima), pen (CTMH), trim (Webster's Pages), vellum and sequins (miscellaneous)

Cluster detail photos:

The wonderful selfie photo was taken using an ipad with stunning results and resolution. With it's touches of green and the flowers in the grass that she is laying down upon, it was an ideal fit photo for the colour challenge.  The sketch and theme worked beautifully to show it off.

Journal Theme: Numbers

On the upside of being away... lots of creative time!  I made several projects which I will share over the next weeks.

Have you ever found yourself going out of your way or doing something nutty for "scrap" sake? Please share your stories, I would love to know that I am not alone.:)
