Hello all! On Saturday night I ditched my husband and locked myself in my craft room for some scrapbooking! The idea was to find a sketch or challenge to participate in. I watched a Shimelle video recently that mentioned challenges in blogs, and I felt curious. I asked in the facebook group for advice and got several pages where I can find challenges. However, after what it felt like a long time, I realised that I didn’t fancy doing that and all I wanted to do was my own stuff!

So I managed to finish two layouts, which is great, although I went to bed so late! But totally worth it. I am so happy with how they came up.

Today I bring you “Fifty shades of cool“. The main papers in this layout are from My Mind’s Eye “Boy Crazy” collection. I did some white splattering (I mixed acrylic paint with watercolour – just because I knew watercolour alone wouldn’t show much) and also added some black enamel dots (Dovecraft 3D enamel effects)

The embellishments are mainly from Simple Stories “Whatever” collection and the title is made with a mix and match selection from my stash (the big thickers are from the “Regards” collection)

And here it is! It is quite minimal, but I really wanted to play with the title and make it the focal point (other than the photo, of course!)

Read you soon,
