Ombre and Layering (Process Video)

Two Peas 6th challenge for CHA is to use 6 layers with a photo or photos.  Layering is not my typical style so I thought this would be a fun one and it was.  The biggest challenge was limiting to six!  I didn't count the journaling as a layer.  After all, you have to have journaling.

Also, I haven't used the popular ombre technique on a scrapbook page so I wanted to try that, too.  To do the background, I brayered several different shades of blue and aqua Stampin' Up! inks on white cardstock.

For the layers, I used Crate Paper's the Pier 6x6 pad which has such beautiful colors and prints - with very little theme to them.  These papers can work with anything.  I dug through some very old stash for a transparency and a few stickers.

Without any of the letter 'o' I couldn't spell 'good' so I subbed stars for the letters.  The stars signify what a great job my stepdaughter, Jaime, has done keeping in shape.  She's my husband's good example these days.  I added some rock candy Stickles to give them a little zing.

Jaime's philosophy is lots of exercise so she can have some indulgences, thus the 'let them eat cake' sticker from Basic Grey's Paper Cottage collection.

Here's the video at YouTube:
