Just Me and My Shadow – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

After a 2 week break, I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog with a layout to share! 😀 For my page I went with this photo I’ve been saving from our trip to the beach. Our youngest son, Christian, loves to imitate everyone and his favorite subject to mimic is, of course, his father. 😀

I combined the Scrap Friends sketch with the inspiration board at Scrap Around the World along with some FABULOUS Creative Embellishments chipboard and Wood Veneers. Here’s what I came up with:

Just Me and My Shadow


Creative Embellishments Together Frame Set
CE Time Flies Frame Set
CE Funky Alphas
CE Wood Veneer gears
American Crafts cardstock
Lindy’s Stamp Gang Moon Shadow and Starburst color shots
The Crafter’s Workshop stencils
Liquitex blended fibers, modeling paste and coarse pumice
dry wall tape
tissue paper
October Afternoon mini market alpha stickers
Shimmerz Texturez

Scrap Around the World Mood Board:

Jan Mood Board 2014

I was inspired by the textures on the tea cups, so I included dimensional stenciling with modeling paste and blended fibers. I was also inspired by the beach image, the colors, texture from the sand, so I incorporated glass bead and coarse pumice with the stenciling and texture work. I added a touch of metal and gears for the bike. I left the wood and chipboard bare for the natural colors from the baskets on the bicycles and the table and chairs. I included glass cabochons and twine inspired by the image on the bottom right.

Here’s the fabulous Scrap Friends sketch I worked with:
