Off The Rails Scrapbooking - Sketch With Color Challenge

Hi, friends. Its a new challenge again at Off The Rails Scrapbooking. We are doing a sketch with color. Pls hop over here for the details. And here's my take on the challenge.

Lifetime Is... Not Enough

I distressed the edges of the paper, adhered the lace and the relevant patterned papers. Then sprayed color mists over them.

I love this chipboard phrases. Added glitter to the word "Love". Here you can see some gauze peeking through behind. Love the effect. I can't help but add in some mixed media elements in my layouts nowadays.

These Prima flowers are just the right finishing touch to the layout. I added leaves behind them.

I sanded the edges of the sepia photo to create a aged look. Please do try this. Its a very nice effect. Don't be afraid to distress your photos.

For the top and bottom of layout, I added these cut-outs from Prima journal cards.

Love how this layout turns out. I seldom use this color scheme for my projects. And its such a simple and fast one. Hope you will love it.

Do hop over to Off The Rails Scrapbooking to join in the challenge. Have fun crafting... And Happy New Year to all!!

Thanks for dropping by.
