NSD Project for Let's Scrap, Frosted Designs and 2SF

I combined three challenges on this one... Let's Scrap style challenge, Christa's NSD challenge at Two Scrapbook Friends and the Frosted Designs Facebook Challenge.

The challenges:
Style: Whimsical
Humorous, whimsical embellishments (kites, banners, pinwheels, trees, flowers, clouds)
Bright, bold, playful papers (often with a scene on them)
Playful patterns (polka dots, stripes, chevrons, checks)
Scenes often created on layouts
Photographs often worked into other elements on page
Tongue-in-cheek humor, whimsical feel
Fun fonts used in journaling & titles
Use of fanciful, often 3-D products

Christa's challenge: use mediums
Frosted Designs: use ink and mists

I used this sketch 8-3-11:

And here is what I made:

All the stickers and patterned papers, plus the white cardstock are Momenta's Endless summer collection.

My whimsical elements - sea embellies, bright papers with scenes, scene created on the layout, photo working into the page (as the journalling) and fun fonts.

Here is a closeup of the gesso, which was striped and then misted with Tattered Angels. The same mist was also used on the white cardstock.


  1. Oh I really like how you used gesso to give you that wonderful texture, I am working on a Mermaid AB and I might have to use that one! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)
