I am playing catch up and only just sharing these layouts from several weeks ago! I had a lot of fun joining in with Janet Maden’s challenge from RTS which focuses on using 6×6 paper pads with scrapbook sketches from Allison Davis at Scrapbook Generations.
It has felt like a step back in time, using double page sketches, as I tend to focus on single layouts with a matching pocket page these days unless it is for a challenge. When I do use a double layout format it seems to be all or nothing, I make a stack of them in one week, then none for months and months. I do have have a few on my blog from last year which I will share links too at the end of the page.
So, here we go, my seven layouts from the RTS 6×6 Challenge…
I mostly followed the Allison Davis sketches whilst watching Janet’s RTS 6 x 6 series, Janet always has a different slant on how to use your cut pieces in multiple ways. My first layout is of my grandson after he took to himself with a permanent marker! I’m pretty sure he will end up with real tattoos when he is old enough, he is influenced by his parents who both have tattoos and he has an uncle who is an apprentice tattooist.
Layout #1. Cool Tatts, homemade! Lots of ink splashed around here and some stamping, every layout has mixed media in this bunch. I used some old TLC rubons and a mix of quote embellishments.
Layout #2. Big Blow Up! A blower vac war between my hubby and grandson. Ink and stencils this time, some of the new Vicki Boutin honey stencils and a Kaisercraft floral stencil.
Layout #3. First Train Ride. Some more splashed around Oxide ink and lots of stamping to make the craft stock background. The patterned papers and die cut embellishments are from Kaisercraft.
Layout #4. Round We Go, photos from a day at the Perth Zoo when we tried out the merry go round/carousal. Circle stamps to get that ‘mood and feel’, as Janet would say.
Layout #5. more Zoo photos! Our zoo trip was not planned and we weren’t prepared for a day in the sun, so we bought very daggy zoo hats. Looking very fetching we just had to have a selfie taken.
At the Perth Zoo, there are many large, ancient, pine trees and I thought this cute decorative fake foliage, which I picked up for $2 from Spotlight, would make great pine trees on my layout.
Layout #6. Lets Go Mumma, fun in a jeep at the zoo.
More splashing of ink and some stamping using a Uniquely creative metal die as a stamp.
Layout #7. Amazing Hot Dogs. I think this one is my favourite, no mixed media. I like how the photos are laid out in a sequence of the event, cooking hot dogs on a campfire at home.
And…that is where I stopped. I didn’t make the last layout, number 8, perhaps I’ll get to finish it during the summer holidays. Only three more sleeps and school’s out for me!
Here are some links to previous double layouts which I have shared…
