Distressed Page

No, not a page that's sad but a scrapbook page made entirely with Distress products! :)

The new Scrap Map challenge is up over at Creative Craft World's challenge blog.

The challenge is simple - just make a scrapbook page using the sketch for inspiration, upload it/pop it on your blog and add your link to the Scrap Map challenge post. You've got till 4 August to enter and you could win yourself a fabby scrapbooking kit and a DT guest spot! :)

Here's the sketch for this month's challenge:

And here's my take on it:

I started with the idea of swiping Distress Stains across the page to make blocks of colour behind the photos, echoing the rectangles on the sketch. I added a bit of texture and interest by dabbing Distress Ink through a stencil of small circles and replaced the large circle in the sketch by dabbing Distress Ink over a decorative mask. I mounted my photos with foam tape for a bit of added dimension and finished things off by doodling frames, a few decorative flowers and some circle borders using Distress Markers. I drew and coloured my journalling and title (cut out and mounted with foam pads) with Distress Markers too. Et voila, a scrapbook page made entirely with Distress! :)
