Ice Cream Perfection

Sunday, August 16, 2015

You would think I would be getting tired of scrapping these photos from our trip to Disneyland now over 3 years ago.  But I'm not.  It's one of my favorite subjects to scrap.  I think one of the things I love is that I don't feel confined to a particular theme.  The colors and experiences are versatile enough to go with a variety of paper I never get bored!

Anyway, lets get down to what brought me to today's layout.

Guest sketch artist Audrey Yeager provided the Scrap Our Stash team with this sketch while our admin challenged us additionally to use items from any row of our choice on the Tic Tac Toe board.

You may be looking at my layout and the sketch going, WHAT???  At first glance, it may not look much like the sketch...but if you rotate the sketch do you see it?  Besides the rotation, I also eliminated the larger circular element in the central background.  I grouped two photos onto a single mat for the focal point.  And instead of a smaller circle embellishment, I chose to include another smaller photo in that spot.

Feeling like the lower half of my layout was missing something, I added a vertical strip of diagonal striped paper and then my title below that.  It also helped to ground and unify everything.

 For my Tic Tac Toe items, I chose the top row.  I created a tag for my journaling which I tucked behind one of the patterned paper squares.  Speaking of patterned paper, I used FIVE...which qualifies for the 4+ patterned papers.  Finally, to complete the row, I used stripes.  They are diagonal, but nonetheless, stripes.  Polka dots and wood veneer and, one could even say, summer theme made it to my page...but none made an additional tic tac toe.  That's okay though...regardless, I still used more stash items!

Now it's your turn.  Head on over to Scrap Our Stash and get inspired to play along!
