I was so excited over getting back to scrapbooking that I went straight to work on the next page. I have so many pictures of my youngest grandson, Logan that it was difficult to choose.
I settled on his birth announcement and the wheels started to turn.
Starting with a 12x12 piece of Canson watercolor paper and Ranger distress re-inkers, I wet the entire paper and dropped Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean onto the surface of the paper and using a spray bottle of water moved the ink where I wanted it . Then I dabbed off the excess with a paper towel and let it dry.
While it was drying I got out my new Altenew set, Baby Balloon, and made nine balloons. I just love the way they turned out. Love this set. I scanned my original announcement and enlarged it for the page. After placing the pictures down I went to work placing the balloons. Wherever I placed a balloon I had to stamp on the page, very nerve racking, I cut out all the balloons only saving the balloon and basket. Then I placed the cut pieces over the stamped image on the page and voilà the ropes were back. I used dimensional tape to pop up the front balloons and then added the banners.
stamped stars in the sky using Pumice Stone distress ink and then added little sequin stars to the centers. At the bottom I added onesies for Mommy and Daddy from Altenew's Little One set and a sentiment from Baby Balloon set.
I will be entering this page in the:Altenew-sketch-challenge #3
