Travel is my Passion

Hello, hello!

I got a tad excited when I saw the challenge up at 13arts. The theme is travel. Travel is my other love - after scrapping!

Here's what I made:

This is one of my favourite photos from our last trip. Durmitor National Park in Montenegro was simply sensational!

I used a few different 13arts papers for this. I tore one of them into two pieces, flipped one end over and added a different 3arts paper underneath the tear. I added retro lace under the torn edges then I hand-sewed fishing swivel things (I don't know what they're called!) across the torn section for a cool look. I love the way the ombre paper blends to a differnet green as it flows down the page.

To create my blue paper behind the photo, I took some 13arts paper in a neutral colour and painted it with 13arts Ayeeda Mist in Pastel Blue. I also used the mist as a spray around my photo and I flicked it around my elements at the end.  In keeping with the metallic theme, I added various metallic elements to the page.

I painted my chippie with gesso and Ayeeda Mist then added Metallic Melts to the bottom section for a bit of texture and interest.

I cut out a sticker from 13arts' Fly Away series and added a few fussy cut pieces from some Timeless papers.

I hope you can join in the challenge! You can find the details here.

Happy scrappin'!
