Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge (don't ya just love that name?). I really went to town with the Distress Inks on this background - can you believe it used to be a piece of plain ol' cream cardstock? I just sprayed it with water, crumpled it up, then rubbed it around in a Distress Ink/water mixture. I didn't like all the cream still showing, so I had to go in with the sponge tool and ink the gaps. Note to self: do the crumpling after the inking! Anyway, here's the sketch I used:
We were also supposed to scrapbook something fun, or funny to go along with this fun sketch. I can't get a decent photo of Nolan and Ailis anymore. By decent, I mean looking at the camera and smiling a normal everyday smile. I really love this photo, though, they were just so happy it really shone through in their goofy faces!
As you can see, I didn't deviate a whole lot from the sketch. I loooooooved the kites, so I paper pieced my own, and I quite like how they turned out! Might have to do that again. And I got to use this cool "paper" I've been hoarding from a kit I won maybe 2 years ago (from Scrap Attack Scrapbooking, who are currently closing their doors and having a big sale, incidentally) - it reminds me of a basketball! Anyway, hope you like my wild and crazy layout, because I had a blast making it!
