Retreat layouts on the roll out - achieved 5 layouts and 3 of those being August Challenges, so happy with myself....will share over the next few days.
First up is the Kraft it Up and the challenge for August is a sketch challenge, a gorgeous multi photo sketch from Page Maps
I loved the multi image sketch, and found it fitted these photos when I rotated the sketch to the right. I completed my layout on Kraft with the addition of a Kraft Scraps. I used strips to imitate the old bridge and these also fitted with the textured slashes on the sketch, I inked the edges with Rangers Tim Holtz Distress Vintage Photo Ink. Another Kraft Scrap got embossed with my Sizzix Big Shot using my newest addition to my stash, the Tim Holtz Texture Fades Embossing Patchwork Folder, which I then swiped with my Rangers Tim Holtz Distress Peeled Paint ink pad. Using the Sizzix Big Shot I also cut out a Tim Holtz Hanging Sign Die, which I then painted with Rangers Distress Crackle Vintage Photo Paint - I didn't get as good a finish as I do when I use the Rock Candy, so I have swiped an assortment of inks over it to help show up the crackles. Embellishments are an assortment of purchased and handmade items. My Kraft hidden tag with details on the bridge is a Typo Tag stamped with Technique Tuesday Ali Edwards Stamp. Jenni Bowlin chipboard buttons are inked with the vintage photo ink and tied with We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy Floss - Bakers Twine Neutral. I have pinch pleated a piece of lime fabric again to create those bridge planks that I loved in my photos.
Here are a few close up detail shots for you.
