Footprints in the Sand- Scrap Lift Challenge with 13 Arts

This month 13 Arts is teaming up with a challenge blog from Russia called Scrap Lifting
This month’s challenge is to scrap lift this layout, designed by on of their DT’s
The very talented Janna Werner
as you can see, this is a fantastic artsy and textured layout and of course it doesn’t have any flowers. It was a real challenge for me but I was up for it!!
I kept the layout and composition on the same side of the page, leaving lots of white empty space.
I stamped and inked along the same lines as the layout and instead of using black paint, I used 13 Arts Gesso mixed with Blue Pearl 13 Arts Mist. It came out a pastel blue which I used on a mask to make it seem like ocean waves.
I only included 2 flowers which is really rare for me. I added some other embellishments like shells, Prima resin birds, cheese cloth and this Frame Elouise by 2 Crafty.
Materials used:
Papers: 13 Arts Frosted Life, White Cardstock
Chipboard: 2 Crafty
13 Arts Gesso
13 Arts Modeling paste
13 Arts Blue Pearl Mist
Flowers: Green Tara, Prima
Resin Birds: Prima
Stars: Pink Paislee
pearls: dollar store
Stamp: Hero Arts
Prima fluid chalk ink: old road
Alphas: Webster’s pages
cheesecloth, shells
Crackle roller stamp
Well now that I’ve discovered this amazing challenge site, I might just have to give it a go next month.

and come join us at our monthly challenge at 13 Arts.
have a wonderful, fabulous day!!
