Hello my scrappy friends and welcome to the Anna’s blog again today! Melinda here with you for some more Cocoa Vanilla Studio Legendary goodness titled “Epic Pavement Adventure Stories”.
I snapped this photo in 2018 because I really loved the story behind it. Funnily enough, the story is still relevant now; though it’s grown and changed with time!
I started this page, again, with my title in mind. Using the Die Cut Titles, a Clear Sticker and adding some green alphas from my stash I built my title. I really love the look of a mix of different fonts, especially in longer titles! With so much “white space” in the photo I layered my title onto my photo and the back ground paper.
For the back ground I started with the 12×12 “Offbeat” pattern, which has all that fun messiness around the edges! Also, that pattern has ALL the colours in it which just makes my rainbow-loving heart happy! The only other paper used on this page are the photo mats I have added using the 6×8 Paper Stack.
Time to add more; so I started with stars, of course! The stars come from the Die Cut ephemera pack and also some of the clear stickers. When I saw the compass die cut pack I knew there wouldn’t be a better page I could use it on, so tucked that into my layers as well.
To my eye the page was looking a little bare with only the photo/title cluster at the bottom. I decided to add a second cluster up to the top starting with another of the Die Cut Title pieces and another clear sticker word “Super”. Adhering my clear sticker words to white card meant I could move them around my page for the “perfect” placement!
More stars and more clear stickers and I was feeling the page was coming together nicely! At this point I felt that my page was still very “clean” and in order to “mess” it up a bit I added some orange and red thread (bundled together) in 3 places.
It did still seem a bit too “clean” for me! lol So, I grabbed a navy blue spray and added some paint along the bottom and right edge of my photo (it was all stuck down already!) using a paint brush. And, of course, splatters!
My final touches were adding my journalling in grey, word stickers from the Accessory Stickers and some enamel dots. As you can see, my journalling was added between the top and bottom clusters and completed the “column” on my page.
I really had fun documenting this photo and telling this story with some time perspective! I find that some stories are best that way!
Until next time, happy scrapping!
