Hello! I'm so excited to be back on my blog and scrapping again. For those of you that don't know, I've been away travelling for a while. I did manage to get a bit of scrapping done while I was away but it's soooooo good to be back in my scrap room again. Ah, the luxury of having all those goodies to scrap with!
I decided to start with an entry for Skrapky-wyzwaniowo, where the challenge was to use hexagons and I used the sketch from Stuck! Sketches.
I loved the sapphire, emerald and gold colours in the amazing mosaics I saw in Italy so I used these colours on my page and set them against a dark background to accent the richness of them. I thought the hexagons worked perfectly with the mosaics theme.
The create my hexagons, I first stamped hexagons onto cardstock then embossed them with white embossing powder. I then added Tinby Design Colour Crush and sprayed with water to create that gorgeous blending of colour. I cut out the shapes and added them around my photos and scattered them across the page.
To take the hexagon theme further, I also made some out of wire. I also wrapped wire around some gold corners that I made out of chipboard.
I wrapped wire around all my chipboard pieces which gave the page a great textural feel.
I cut the title from the same home-made hexagon paper and outlined the letters in gold.
There's not much time left if you want to join in these challenges!
