Happy Saturday! I hope you are all having a great day! I am feeling a bit under the weather, but was able to get some scrapping done. I started with this sketch from Stuck?! Sketches:


I got a little messy for this layout, but I thought it went well with the subject. I started by watering down some green spray ink and making a big circle of it on my background cardstock. I held the cardstock upright so the ink would run down the page. Then I used the packaging technique to add the dark blue ink. I had a little mishap with the dark blue ink that resulted in the dark blue splatter at the bottom of the page. 
I then used a mask and texture past to add the spots. I like how they kind of look like the shaving cream in the photos. I layered on some patterned paper and a bit of washi tape. I used my Cricut to cut the title and attached it with foam adhesive for some dimension. I found the fun paper clip arrow in an old Scrapbook Circle kit I won a couple of years ago. I also pulled out some roller stamps for my date and the sentiment in the top right corner. I finished the page off with some enamel dots and a badge.

I was also inspired by this month's Take 5 Tuesday challenge at Paper Issues. I used white, enamel dots, cardstock, an arrow, and told the story. The week two challenge at Lasting Memories was also to use arrows.

Have a great rest of your weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
