This week we had another fun sketch to work with for Nuts About Sketches. Since the sketch called for one large photo, I decided to take the opportunity to make an "I Pray For You" layout for my son. (You may remember this was an assignment from the "Scrapbooking Your Faith" class I took.)
For the large circle, I cut the center out of a die cut piece of paper (the outside was purple). I distressed the edges of everything because that weathered wood paper begs to be distressed. I sprayed the background using a couple colors of blue mist and the cardboard leftover after punching out game pieces. The "On The Bright Side" paper pack comes with banner pieces, I used three of those to match my layout and used them as a pattern the cut the rest from patterned paper.
I liked the lined paper that I used for the journaling spot, but it was white. So I took some red and yellow Distress ink and inked the paper until I was happy with the color. Then I splattered some water on it to make the spots. I LOVE how it turned out, there is so much you can do with Distress Inks!
