Childhood - Scrapbook LO # 2

Wednesday, 14 May 2014

Hey There.

There's this challenge going on at Beyond Grey Challenges where we are supposed to make a scrapbook LO based on the given sketch. I loved this sketch by Karen and really felt like making a scrapbook LO after quite a long time (I made my first ever scrapbook LO last year. Click  here to view it).

Here's my take:

And here's the sketch I was inspired by:

I love the idea of scrapbooking. Although I'm more into card making, I have spent hours viewing the wonderful scrapbook LOs on pinterest. I swoon at the creative talent out there in scrapbooking and wanted to indulge in it myself, but the only hitch , I didn't know where to start. lol.

But thankfully, when I sat to make this one, one thing lead to another and I just went with the flow.

Handmade flipflops

handmade Tag

Okay, so I wanted to give it a grungy look and making of this one involved some stenciling, some splattering(all with distress inks) , layering with PPs and the doily and finally embellishing. The windmills, the little flip-flops, and the tag are handmade. And I also made a pocket behind the photo using vellum and have added some sequins inside which move freely on shaking. So, yes, you can say it's a Shaker Layout :P

I love this quote :)

Those cute buttons and the paper clip are from the prize package I won at Pretty Paper Studio Challenge and all the lovely PPs that you see are from the  Allison Kraft design webster pages from the prize package I won at Lessology. Yeah, I got an excuse to use these goodies now  ;)

The picture shows my little one playing with the sand on the beach, completely indulged, unaware and blissful. That's what childhood is all about, isn't it ? :D  I have tried to capture this playful essence of childhood  in my LO.

That's all from me for now. Hope you liked it.

Thanks for visiting me today. Have a great day. :)
