Layout #2: Splash!

I've set a monthly scrapbooking challenge on the do crafts Craft Talk scrapbooking forum and, as I've only managed to complete the one for January so far, I should really be working on those. However, I've been wallowing in so much stuff to do and such a deep doldrum of crafter's block that I was grateful to be able to make progress on any project. If I was being cheeky, I could claim that this layout works for February's "Favourite" theme, as the photos feature my son doing one of his favourite things, but I have something else in mind for that theme :-)

I haven't done any journalling for this layout, other than date and place, as the photos don't really need any explanation.

What I used
Paper: DCWV Photo Stack, DCWV The Stack 5, blue linen card
Tools: XCut nesting circle dies, Papermania circle punches, grey Sharpie pen

Crafting notes

  • The letters of "Splash!" are cut freehand from water photo paper. I cut some of the circles from this paper and the others from the cropped parts of the photos.
  • I didn't use a sketch for this layout, but it was inspired by a layout in "How to Scrapbook" by Joy Aitman & Sarah McKenna.
