For my example, I started out with solid white cardstock. Since the wispy white lines that are evenly spaced in the inspiration image reminded me of sheet music, I used the CE grunge music note sheet background stamp with matte multi-medium to create a resist. I did not have a text stencil, so I used the closest thing I had, which is a ledger stencil with blended fibers. That also works as a resist. I then went over the whole page with various amounts of black soot distress stain to create a dark background like that of the image. From there, I was inspired by the flourishes, colors and layering. The words I used from the image are Dream, Love and Everything. To help me create the page, I also used the Monday Mojo sketch from Flying Unicorn as inspiration for my page design. Here’s what I came up with:

Hangin’ With Dad – Layout for Creative Scrappers Sketch#154

Now that I’ve moved onto Christian’s photos and Father’s Day is getting ever closer, I figured I’d scrap one for Larry. He prefers that flowers in general stay on layouts that feature Madison (though he does think that some of my handmade flowers are okay for boy pages) and he rarely likes doilies on “boy” pages. He does like when I use ink, paint and scruff things up a bit, so I kept things simple and went with a little paint, a little tearing, a touch of inking and a bit of distressing. For this layout, I went with the Creative Scrappers sketch#154 posted on May 1, 2011. I stuck very close to the sketch on this one and kept it clean the way Larry prefers. 😀 Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Bo Bunny Midnight Frost 12×12 cardstock papers
BB Timepiece 12×12 papers
American Craft white cardstock
BB Timepiece dimensional sticker
BB diecut alpha stickers
Folk Art white acrylic paint
Distress Ink

Adhesives:
