Triple S over at Orange Paperie

Good morning folks

Sunday morning here and it's warmer this morning than it has been over the last couple of days, no heavy frost to see this morning, thank god.

I am uploading my take on the Triple S challenge for July over at Orange Paperie.

The triple S stands for stamping, stitching and stencilling.

I feel I am running a bit behind this month and have pushed myself to squeeze this one in.  Not enough days off in a week to scrap.

Anyway here are the pictures of my rushed page.

I have used texture paste through the centre of the page with a chevron stencil changing the direction at the centre of the page, knowing I can cover the messy blobs with the photo. I have used washi tape, stitching and plasterers tape in the corners, I also smudged some more texture paste over to add a touch of white. Then I stamped using a row of stars over the dry texture paste. It came out quite bold so I stamped again lightly across the top and bottom to frame the page.

The canvas letters were hot pink to start with so they were inked black, you can still see hints of pink in this picture.  I went with monochromatic on this layout but if I had more stash and time I think I would have added one single colour in places to zing.  Like yellow, red or lime green.

I might do that at a later date.

Anyway I am off to get ready and make the house tidy for our sunday lunch guests of my OH's mum and brother.

Bye xxx
