I'm back after taking a little bit of a break. I finally got my scrappy legs back as well. I created a layout for a challenge over at Swirlydoos. Every month there is a member hosted challenge, this month our dear Peggy is hosting.
The theme for the challenge is It's been a long, long, time. The rules of the challenge are to pull out those old tools and mediums that you had to have, but haven't used in at least a year. I don't know what she is talking about since I use everything I buy (wink, wink).
Well, I pulled out an older Swirlydooos kit and a picture from our London trip and got to work. I chose to used some neglected alcohol inks, some rub n buff and some inka gold on this layout.
The photo is of our tour guide on the Jack the Ripper (took me long enough to get to the title, didn't it) tour we took. It was lots of fun, but a lot of walking.
I used some creative embellishment chipboard on my layout. I added some fiber paste to it, then I used some alcohol inks and rub n buff. I love the textured created. It kinda looks like the bark on the tree in the photo.
I created lots of layers under the photo. I also used some alcohol ink on the metal pieces. I did some random stamping and masking on the background.
Thanks for stopping by.
