The Windjammer

I am really slow at scrapping my pics that I took when I went on that cruise last April. So usually when I do scrap those photos, its for a challenge. And sure enough, ACOT’s Guest Designer has chosen a Travel Challenge!

Here’s my layout, featuring Laurie and I getting our first meal:

The Windjammer

I ended up using gelatos for half my layout. Created my background with metallic melon, sealing with some Faber-Castell Glaze. Then just went crazy with the layers! All papers are from Fancy Pants “Collecting Memories” collection. This whole collection, along with some washi tape and other small embellishments, is my homemade “kit” I created for ACOT’s “Kill a Kit” Challenge. So far this month, I’ve created 8 layouts so far! Woo-hoo!

I then layered some fun washi tape (stamps and arrows). One is from Love My Tapes, the other is The Paper Studio.

I then added some spackling paste to my coffee stains stencil. Yes, you read right. Spackling Paste. What you would find in the Hardware store (Home Depot, Lowe’s, etc). Everytime I think about picking up modeling paste or whipped spackle, whereever I go, they are out, or don’t carry it. So I figured I’d try out spackling paste. And OMG! I just love the results!

The chipboard pieces are from Cloud 9 Design. Just fun little accents – thought they went quite well on a layout about a cruise!

The layout is based on Sketches in Thyme Sketch #155
