Simply Lovely - My First DT Layout for Scrap Africa!!



I am so excited to be sharing my layout for my first challenge on the DT of Scrap Africa!! This weeks challenge is a "RESIST" challenge! I did two different types of resist techniques on this layout!


On my gorgeous Molossi chipboard butterfly I heat embossed my beautiful Visible Image Bronte Border script stamp...I just love that stamp, such a great addition to any layout and it looks gorgeous here on the butterfly. I took my Peacock Feather and Walnut Stain Distress Inks and inked the background of the butterfly and just love how it turned out!


The second resist I tried was molding paste/gesso resist. I used my checkerboard stencil from Prima to add molding paste to the layout, then sprayed Moonshadow spray over it and wiped the paste clean again so it  stood out against the sprayed background...I added this in several places around the layout.

I used my gorgeous October kit from C'est Magnifique to make this layout, mixing the 7 Dots and Tilda papers included and the chalkboard frames and gorgeous flowers... I added some chicken wire chipboard pieces and nests of black thread to the layout as a finishing touch.

I would love to enter this into the Scrap Around the World challenge. I used the colors (pinks and blues!) and doilies (I used a doily mask on the background) and the sketch: 


I would also love to enter this in the checkerboard challenge at Scrapki Wyzwaniowo.
