I don't normally contribute to the design team in the even months for off the Rails but this month I couldn't resist. I designed a mood palette and sketch for the challenge quite some time ago and I wanted to know firstly, did the colours work well together? and secondly, was the sketch doable?
When I design a sketch, I often like to try it out. This gives me a bit of an idea of what to do or not to do next time. This is how it turned out.
And here is the sketch and mood palette I created for the challenge.
It has a vintage feel to it and incorporates my favourite element of scrapping - ephemera!
My background paper has a beautiful script all over it. I used it to represent the script markings on the sketch and the writing on the old letters in the pictures.
I used a honey comb stamp to create the honeycomb pattern on the sketch also.
And i incorporated wings into my layout, the same as the photo has a young girl wearing some dress up fairy wings. I also represented this by cutting out and placing some wings on a little arm less doll. yeah a bit creepy but cool all the same because I reckon it gives it a kind of vintage feel.
I also added some Imaginarium Chippy as they are our kind sponsors for the month. Later in the month (23rd march) my tutorial on how this all came together is up on the Off the Rails Scrapbooking Blog.
I created this page while on one of my "Scramping" trips. What a beautiful setting to create in. This is my messy outdoor studio!
The sun was shining and we were pretty sweetly set up for the weekend. Very relaxing and lots of fun.
