Hey crafty friends! I hope the start of 2021 is treating you well so far. I’m back sharing a new layout today for the Scrap the Girls Dead Men Tell No Tails Challenge. Despite the ominous name of the challenge I chose to great a hello adventure birthday girl scrapbook layout. The challenge was using the below image, and one could take inspiration as it struck them.
The image for me gave me inspiration in three different ways. The first was the color scheme. I turned to my scraps of the very old Simple Stories collection called Vintage Bliss. The collection had pink, aqua, yellow and green just like the above image.
The second way the image gave my inspiration was the flowing hair of the mermaid. In the one picture our photographer captured out daughters hair is flowing straight out behind her as she played. The third way I received inspiration from the image was the wood of the boat. I used this to use two wood veneer pieces for my title.
This 12×12 layout was also created using just scraps of a 6×6 paper pad. I used a sketch from one Alison Davis’s sketchbooks that use only a 6×6 paper pad. This particular sketch was even better as I was able to use just my scrap pieces and didn’t need full 6×6 sheets. I didn’t have any embellishments left from this collection so I cut some butterflies from one of the papers, and used some bits and bobs from old Felicity Jane kits as well as some generic things like enamel dots and phrase stickers.
I hope you’ve enjoyed hearing and seeing my take on the challenge, and that is inspired you to play along as well. If you do play along, please leave me a comment with you link so I can check your creation out as well. Until next time….stay crafty!
