Scrapbook Layout

Hello and Happy Easter!

My first project today is a scrapbook layout.  It's been a while since I did any scrapping and when I saw the Sketch Challenge at Altenew I was inspired to haul out my supplies.  

March 2017 Altenew Layout Sketch Challenge. By @ahorton, Halftone Circles Stamp Set - @Altenew

(click to enlarge)

I painted broad uneven stripes for the background on my 12 x 12 paper.  The frame for the photo is chipboard and I first applied gesso, stamped with versamark, heat embossed with Satin Pearl EP and applied ink with my blending tool.  

Here is a close-up of the embossed resist frame:

The stamps and dies are Altenew Peony Bouqet, Label Love, Calligraphy Alpha and Happy die.
I finished off with a few other embellishments and of course some splatters!  

I'm also linking this to WOW! April Challenge

I had fun with this and hope to do more layouts soon.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Oh I love your painted stripes and this pretty layout! Altenew has some of the prettiest flower stamps!

  2. Your page looks amazing, Zelda!!!! I am so wanting to do some scrapbooking again - have been in the mood for a long time and you have inspired me to do something about it now!!!! I love the idea to paint the bg stripes in stead of using store bought paper and you have created a lovely frame for the photo!!! The flowers are so beautiful!!! Fabulous!!!!
