Zip It

The photos for this page came from the same day as my previous two pages, but they document different things so I haven't used the same papers, though I do have greens, yellows and teal blues on each.

This time I have a set of fun photos of us on the zip wire in the park near the fort, and I adapted a four photo sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap to accommodate six photos.

The sketch features large banners behind the photos, making it perfect for Birthday Stash-a-Thon Challenge #5 at Scrap Our Stash.

This was another page where I shuffled papers for a while. I found a couple of combinations that I liked but the photos got lost against them. Finally I realised that I needed clean patterns (not distressed) on white paper, and Studio Calico's Snippets collection provided all the patterns I needed. I just added a bit of mist to the background, inked my edges for definition and stitched a few crosses on the paper edges.

Paper - Studio Calico Snippets
Letters - American Craft Thickers, Bo Bunny Mama-Razzi
Wood Veneer Pieces - Studio Calico, Creative Embellishments
Mist Cosmic Shimmer Mist
Ink - Ink It Up!
Thread - DMC
