Hi all i start off the December challenges with a new sketch and layout. if you would like to play along the join us at www.thememorynest.blogspot.co.uk. winners will get the chance to guest design in the next challenge. December is going to be one of those months where i will be changing design teams as most of my terms end this month. I am waiting to find out if i am continuing on with Docrafts and i have stepped down from The Memory Nest so we will be announcing a new team next week.
You can take any inspiration from the sketch you like and here is my interpretation below
i wanted to do another nautical layout using the lovely sea shell stamps by Oak House Studios. i also used their sea blue ink and denim blue embossing powder to give the stamps more detail. The photo is of the Portland Bill lighthouse near Weymouth Dorset. it a lovely area surrounded by dramatic rocky landscapes and blue sea, very calming.
Here i have used a selection of paper flowers and embellishments form Trimcraft. i used the Dovecraft essentials 3D pearls to give them a shimmer effect.
used the Memory Box Texture Disperse stencil (88507) to create the background and then spritzed over it with Oak House Studio's Vintage blue and Tempting Teal spray inks.
i used a stencil mask Alpha Crumbled (88500) by Memory Box, to create the title using Slate grey ink from the Colour Chemistry range (www.oakhousestudio.com). i just rubbed over the letters using a make up sponge.
